“I found Dr. JOHN HOY very knowledgeable, passionate and willing to understand and cater to the needs of his patients during treatment. His staff is nice and welcoming with good customer service. I got a pimple like stuff on the outer side of my right foot, which I mistakenly thought to be a corn/callus for 2 months. When it started becoming painful and causing problems in walking for me, I went to Dr. John Hoy’s office which is close to my workplace in downtown.
Dr. Hoy was quick to identify that it was a Wart and not any corn/callus. He answered all my questions pertaining to treatment and clearly told me the treatment options with timeline for each. I have been going to his office for treatment 3 times so far over past 1.5 months, and I am seeing lot of improvement & recovery in my foot by now.” -Gurpreet S., 6/18/2015
