"I have had three surgeries now with Dr. Larsen, so I think it is fair to say that I am a pretty good judge of his work, and a very pleased one to say the least. I have had nothing but success with both of my bunion surgeries, as I have absolutely zero pain in my feet where I couldn't walk around for more than a couple hours beforehand without terrible discomfort; and I now even run an average of about 15 miles per week. My third surgery, removal of a neuroma, is still healing and I can honestly say that I have full confidence it will provide just as much relief from my pain as the previous two. I feel that I am very lucky to have found Dr. Larsen as my Podiatrist"
