“Dr. Hoy listened to my concerns and did a thorough examination.  He reviewed all of the solutions and treatments with me and we agreed on a conservative approach.  This is the first Seattle podiatrist I’ve visited who hasn’t immediately suggested outfitting me in expensive, custom orthotics as the supreme cure-all.  Dr. Hoy was very knowledgeable, considerate and professional.  His office manager, Ava is delightful and very accommodating.  I can confidently recommend a visit to Dr. Hoy for any foot and ankle issues.” -Denis A.

“Recurrent sporting and orthopedic challenges have meant I have visited podiatrists before. Dr Hoy compares extremely favorably with the best I had previously attended, from prompt, courteous and thorough front desk support to detailed history, careful examination and thorough explanation of the pathology and proposed management.” -Dr. Stephen S., MD

“Wonderfully attentive, easy to make an appointment, and a great office atmosphere. This is what you hope for. A good amount of time with a knowledgeable individual who obviously cares about your well being.” -James V.

“So happy to have found Doctor Hoy and Ava! Excellent care – informative, professional and helpful. I wish I had found this office a long time ago. Highly recommend!” -Teresa S.

“I am very happy with attention, medical experience I got in your clinic. Dr. Hoy is one of the best experienced doctors I’ve met. I would sure recommend him to the people who need this type of help. Thank you again.” -Irina O.

“Please accept this late review of the surgery you performed on my feet.  After several weeks of “testing” the results of your surgery, I am most delighted with the recovery I have made.  Both feet have recovered and I am using them as if I never had any problems.  Should I be asked for a recommendation I will enthusiastically recommend you, Dr. Hoy.  I close this message with a warm greeting about your staff.  They complement the professional work you perform by making me, as a patient, welcome and important.  I close this note by saying Thank You Doctor for your superb medical support.” -Pi M.
