“My experience at Neuhaus Foot & Ankle was beyond belief. I felt so safe and so well taken care of by the staff (Brenda, Sheila, Megan, and Brittany) and Dr. Jason Knox. Thank you so much for your care and careful attention. Your office was well-organized, prompt with responses, professional and caring. Most of all, I felt as if you were all family which made the atmosphere a relaxed one. I was greeted cheerfully at the front desk by Sheila. Brittany was so caring and I felt really comfortable with her in the patient room. She was precise with her questions, very friendly and I felt understood by her. Dr. Knox was caring and very helpful in explaining the procedure. Brenda was my final stop and she was extremely kind! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I don’t think I could truly express how thankful I am for my experience there. You have a great staff and office!”
