In December of 2017, I flew from Portland, Oregon to Beverly Hills to have bilateral bunionplasty surgery. Dr. Blitz was amazing. He has one of the best bedside manners of any doctor I have seen. He's very patient, caring, gentle, easy to talk to and very accessible by phone or text. He even did my follow up care in my hotel room. Travel between states was fairly easy and my surgery went well. I was able to get around easily on crutches afterward for a couple of weeks and then without. The pain was manageable, and physical therapy helped a lot with the healing process. By 4 months, I was able to ease into my regular exercise routine of dance, aerobic walking and biking. By 6 months, I was completely free from pain and any physical limitations. I am so happy with the way my feet look and feel! I'm actually excited to go shoe shopping again. I would highly recommend Dr. Blitz.
Should have done this years ago! I had two bunioneictomies within the last 7 months and regret not having done them earlier. I had heard that you need to be off your feet for months after having the surgery. Not true with the way Dr. Blitz does the surgery. Up and around the next day, taking care of my family and started wearing my gorgeous heels again. He is compassionate and straightforward. Always available to answer questions and the office staff is sweet, kind, funny and very respectful to people's busy schedules. I am wearing my Jimmy Choo's again - without pain!
I flew in from Washington to get my bunion surgery from Dr Blitz. I have nothing but praise for this man not only do I have a superb result but he has incredible bed side manner. I will continue to recommend him to anyone. After having several consultations from different doctors over the years and doing lots of research, I knew right away I found the right doctor when I found Dr Blitz. I knew with out a doubt he is by far the best podiatrist in the world based on his expertise. My experience was awesome to say the least. I will tell people don't hesitate to fly in from out of state, Dr Blitz and staff make the experience super easy and if you want the best foot Dr to work on your foot it is WORTH the trip and to get your foot done the right way for your specific foot. What is awesome is he doesn't do the same bunion surgery for everyone he looks at the problem and the anatomy of your foot and curtails a sort of custom surgery for you. He is cutting edge and way ahead of the game, and definitely a perfectionist both in his surgery and follow up care. As busy as Dr Blitz is he is incredibly timely at being available if you ever have a concern which is awesome and unheard of by any doctors I know. For bunion surgery he's even developed his own special implants to improve functionality of the foot! Recovery is super easy too, I got a walking shoe and was able to walk with a cane right away. My foot looks perfect he made VERY small incisions my scars will be so small if at all and I am feeling great! No more bunion pain! Thank you bunion king!!
Dr Blitz and his office staff are amazing. From the moment that I met Dr Blitz and his staff I knew I made the right choice. I am 68 years old and I was terrified to have any type of surgery done on my foot. Dr Blitz made me feel so comfortable from the moment that I met him. He is compassionate, patient and truly cares for his patients. Dr Blitz goes above and beyond! He is the only doctor that I know gives his patients his cell phone number and calls his patients after surgery to check on them. If you are considering bunion surgery, say yes to the "bunion king" Dr Blitz.
Four years ago now we travelled from Australia to see the best in the world! Dr Blitz rectified our (then) 14 years old daughters tarsal coalition. Meg has not looked back and is dancing stronger than ever! Thank you Dr Blitz!
Dr. Blitz is simply the best doctor I've ever met, and I feel lucky that he is my doctor for bunion surgery. I don't compliment someone as "the best" very easily, so I want to share my experience to explain why I give him such a high compliment. I hope sharing my experience could help someone in the future. First, he is world's top expert in the field of bunion surgery. When I say top expert, I mean he has published many journal articles on this subject, developed new method, created patent, and has done thousands of bunion surgeries in the real world. He is a top expert in both theoretical and practical sense in this field. Second, he is a super caring doctor. I'm a very meticulous person by nature, so I bothered him a lot of times (sometimes very late at night) after the surgery for some of my concerns and questions, and he always responds to my questions and concerns and give instructions and advices in minutes (except when he's in the surgery room). That's right, in minutes. I don't know how a well-known and super busy doctor like him manages to do that, but he did it. I truly feel he cares about the results of my surgery, and he's truly willing to use all his knowledge and resources to make sure that I get the best results. This is very rare these days. Third, he did, like he promised, gave me a fabulous/fantastic/amazing result that I'm extremely satisfied with (in all aspects). I feel truly grateful to Dr. Blitz's amazing surgery skills. Besides Dr. Blitz being an amazing doctor, one more thing amazing about Dr. Blitz's office is his staff members. Cheer and Jalisa are super helpful with all the insurance instructions and are always very welcoming and super responsive. (Like many patients, I've also read every single review before I chose a doctor to visit, so I hope this review would help you make the right decision like I did.)
It's been over a year since my bunion surgery with Dr. Blitz and my foot looks and, more importantly, feels like it did before a bunion ever developed. Truth be told, one or two nights after the surgery when the nerve block had worn off, I was in quite a bit of pain--but about three or four days later I was able to bear weight on my foot and walk without crutches. This is HUGE in the post bunion-surgery world. Dr. Blitz's bunionplasty technique only required me to take about eight days off from work, versus a few weeks. Once I returned to the office, I was in a soft shoe (not a boot) and walking with some challenges, but independently and without any aid. After a couple of months, I was a little concerned that my foot's swelling would never go down or look normal again. Dr. Blitz tempered my expectations: patience is a virtue, and totally necessary after this surgery. About four/five months post procedure, I was out of my sneakers and able to wear my normal shoes again, which felt like a huge accomplishment. In addition to the surgery itself, the payment/insurance process discussion with Dr. Blitz's office staff and the facility where I had the procedure done (Midtown Surgery) was second-to-none. I was so impressed with the way they managed it all and gave me the details I needed. Good customer service is so hard to come by these days, and I'm extremely grateful to Dr. Blitz and the staff who very effectively allayed my worries (both financial and pain). In sum, the surgery was completely worth it and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. A belated thank you to Dr. Blitz and staff!
Dr. Blitz and his staff are wonderful! I never once felt rushed when speaking to him or to Cheer regarding my condition and procedure. I am finally relieved of the excruciating pain I've had for way too long. Wish I had found him sooner!
Dr. Blitz performed bunion surgery on both of my feet, about a year apart. I am happy to report that I have minimal scarring and no pain, and I was able to make my way through NYC in a small boot shortly after surgery. From his beautiful 5th Avenue office, to his informative staff, to his thorough and streamlined approach, Dr. Blitz is an impeccable surgeon and I am grateful to have been his patient!
Dr. Blitz performed tarsal coalition surgery on our 14 year old daughter’s foot in February 2017. As parents, it was not an easy decision for us to make to have our daughter undergo foot surgery. When we first met Dr. Blitz, after researching and meeting with other doctors, we immediately felt confident and trusted him to do our daughter’s surgery. We chose Dr. Blitz because of his extensive experience as a foot surgeon, and his publications in several medical journals about the condition she had. Dr. Blitz is an exceptional doctor and surgeon. He truly cares about his patients and has a wonderful bedside manner. Dr. Blitz spent a lot of time explaining to us the surgery and how the surgery will help our daughter’s condition. We also like the fact that Dr. Blitz and his team have been performing surgeries together for a long-time. Also, Dr. Blitz’s office staff is outstanding, personable and knowledgeable. After surgery and he checked in several times with us and was truly caring it something we will never forget. Dr. Blitz would often call and text our daughter to check in to see how she was recovering. It’s been almost 8 months since the surgery, and our daughter’s foot/ankle is functioning as well as Dr. Blitz said it would. Our daughter is very pleased with the results! We highly recommend Dr. Blitz.
