Heel Pain (plantar fascitis and heel spurs)
I first visited Dr.Kenneth Meisler’s office 13 years ago when I was dianosed with heel spurs. A few months ago I was experiencing pain again and returned to his care. With the combination of ultrasound pulse therapy and a cortisone injection I am pain free and almost back to my normal excersice level. Dr. Meisler and his associates provide state of the art therapy in a supportive environment. In the past I have recommended Dr. Meisler to family, friends, and coworkers and will do so again!
Dr. Meisler is the best! I came to see him for the first time in late April to have him examine my ever-growing bunions (one on each foot, plus a tailor’s bunion on my left). He thoroughly examined my condition, offering several non-surgical options as well as laying out the risks and benefits of corrective surgery. He let me make my own decision to undergo surgery—first on the left foot and then (several months later) on the right foot. He was extremely flexible in scheduling the procedures around my schedule. He walked me through the timeline for healing from the procedure and explained how long I would be out of work, how long it would be before I could walk/exercise/wear high heels again, etc. I was nervous about the procedure but he did a great job; I healed faster than expected and have a great range of motion in my big toe joint. In fact, I was so pleased with my left foot that I actually looked forward to getting the right foot done. Now, having been through two procedures, I am bunion-free, pain-free, and extremely satisfied.
Dr. Meisler and his associates are the most wonderful podiatrists in all of NYC and I should know. I spent almost 2 years in constant pain searching for a doctor who could help me. I saw 4 other podiatrists who did nothing to alleviate my suffering. When I first came to Dr. Meislers office, he asked Dr. Wendelken to perform a sonogram of my foot. Immediately, he found the nature of my problem using his in office equipment. Dr. Meisler operated on my foot 3 weeks ago and removed a Mortons Neuroma that had been causing all my discomfort. Dr. Minacapilli assisted in the surgery and has since done the after care, providing compassionate and thorough treatment. It is incredible that I had to endure so much before finding this podiatry practice. I highly recommend Dr. Meisler as a skilled podiatric surgeon, as well as the talented, competent and compassionate group of associates in his office.
Dr. Meisler is a true professional who consults his fellow podiatrists in the office to make sure his patients are fully taken care of. Also, so much of what he needs is done in office x-rays, scans, ultra sounds, etc. I had a neuroma removed and have been back with a stress fracture amongst other ailments. He continues to fully investigate the previous conditions and treat the new ailments. I recommend him and his associates to anyone in need.
Dr. Kenneth Meisler is a god send when it comes to the feet. I have been going to Dr. Meisler for many years due to a lot of wear and tear on my feet always with positive results. The most challanging scenario was when I got a stress fracture in a complicated spot and there was a good chance that arthritis would set in if the fracture did not heal properly. Due to his expertise and utmost care he healed me without any complications I am most greatful to that. His office is busy yet very efficient. Even when the doctor has been fully booked they will find a way to accomodate my work schedule and fit me in. I would absolutely reccommend him to anyone based on the fact that I have always had such good results and pleasant experiece. My feet are most important and he certainly has done a great job on taking care of my ailments.
Dr. Meisler gave my foot back! I had a really bad wart for 5 years. Went to 3 different doctors and non of them was able to cure me. One of them even made it worse. After see doctor Meisler, I saw the difference in 3 sessions. He is a wonderful and a great great doctor. He has a lot of patience, and knowledge.
Dr. Meisler is great!! I had plantar warts that were being treated by another Podiatrist for over a year without good results, but .Dr. Meisler has been able to get rid of them in a couple of visits. The other Dr. was using the same technique,but I had to go to surgery center for the laser treatments which was expensive and very time consuming. Dr. Meisler has the laser at his office so I could get the treatment at no extra cost and more often. His schedule is very flexible, I am able to see him before work and still get to work on time and his staff is very friendly and helpful. BTW, I went to him because of his good reviews online : )
Dr. Meisler is a talented and patient physician. I had an aggravating plantar wart on my heel for about 7 years. I had been to several dermatologists who couldn’t do much for me. Thankfully one referred me to Dr. Meisler who, using a laser treatment, cured me within several sessions. I still can’t believe it. His office is clean and well run office with friendly, competent staff. Thanks a million Dr. Meisler!
BEST FOOT DOCTOR EVER! This is the only foot doctor you’ll want to see. Don’t waste your time with any other podiatrist – go straight to Dr. Meisler. My experience was terrific! I was being treated for a cluster of plantar warts rather unsuccessfully when I heard about Dr. Meisler. With his expertise and state-of-the-art equipment, it only took several visits to correct the problem. Before this I was in a lot of pain with a ton of visits to my old doctor and relatively no progress was being made. Using laser treatments, it took only about 4 visits and I had only minor discomfort following the procedure. Kind and knowledgeable, he is, without a doubt, The BEST!
AMAZING DOCTOR Dr. Meisler is the only doctor who could remove my huge plantar warts on my feet. I strongly recommend to see Dr. Meisler before you go to see any other doctors. I used to see other doctors for 2 years before I met Dr. Meisler, and the treatments they did made the warts bigger and worse. At the beginning, I had only 1 wart for 3yrs before I saw any doctors, but during the 2yrs treatments with other doctors, 7 new small warts showed up on my feet, and some of them got together and became huge warts. The other doctors tried to freeze the warts off, or burn them off, but just creating more warts and making them bigger, and keep saying that they could remove the warts in a few months…. Those were horrible & very painful treatment experience I had for 2 years. After Dr. Meisler treated the huge warts 3 times, it was obvious that the warts were getting small. Now, all of my warts are completely gone. I REALLY REALLY REALLY APPRECIATE what he did for me. He is the only doctor who could help me. Thank you very much Dr. Meisler
This is THE BEST foot doctor around and I speak from experience. I tried 5 different foot doctors in New York City and elsewhere over the course of 5 years for a planar wart problem (a mosaic wart on my heel). Dr Meisler was my sixth doctor. Not only was he able to resolve this longstanding, painful issue, but he was also reliable, patient and pleasant. At the beginning of treatment he gave me an estimate for the number of sessions we would have to meet that turned out to be very accurate. He also took time to answer all my questions. This is an exceptional doctor who takes excellent care of his patients and I could not recommend him more highly!
Dr. Meisler has treated a “family” of warts on left foot with attention and care as well as advanced techniques rarely afforded such a mundane condition!
I have sent two of my pilates clients to him for bunion surgery, and they were absolutely delighted with the results.
As Dr. Meisler is a former NYC Marathon runner, avid horseman and golfer, I am delighted that he understands the specific mindset of an a true athlete as well as the “weekend warrior.”
