Lauri S.

I was visiting my rheumatologist and after looking at my feet, she recommended I see Dr. Scott McGarvey, Twin Cities Orthopedics Edina, to take a look. Before this day I’d had 3 foot surgeries for bunions and hammertoes. On a scale of 1-10, I was at a 9 with pain not being able to walk long distances. I couldn’t walk through any store without being in excruciating pain. I haven’t wore sandals and barely fit in extra wide shoes for years because my feet were so wide and the hammer toes were so protruding. For 20 years even after seeing other Doctors, my pain got progressively worse.

Before surgery with Dr. McGarvey, the pain was so intense all the way up my leg I couldn’t touch my leg without it hurting. After surgery, it was a 3 month recovery for each foot. I could see my foot getting back to normal as the weeks went by. I had no pain almost immediately after surgery. Today I am in NO pain at all, anywhere!! I wish I would’ve met you 20 years ago, Dr. McGarvey!!

Anyway, I would like to recommend Dr. Scott McGarvey to anyone that needs a foot or ankle surgery. He is a Doctor with the best bedside manners you could ask for. He is intelligent and knowledgeable and has been working in his field for many years. I can’t write this and not include Rhodora, Dr. McGarvey’s assistant. Rhodora is the best, she is on top of her game, assisting in many facets of the medical office. Rhodora is also the best with her patients, treating them with empathy and respect. I almost wish I had more feet (lol) to see them for. I will miss going in to visit and the high quality of work they both put out. Dr. McGarvey, Rhodora I can’t thank you enough!!!

Sincerely,
Lauri S.
