I have always had a pleasant experience at Flat Shoals Foot & Ankle. Every area of wholesome care is in this place from the sign-in to Dr.'s care to confidence in treatment and scheduling appointments. Everyone is professional and patient. Dr. Clements' has uplifting energy and her attention to your concerns is refreshing. I love the display of positive notes around the office. It motivates peace and lightheartedness that plays an important role in healing. I recommend this podiatrist practice.

Wonderful staff. Very kind about the issue I was having and didn't judge at all. Understood that I didn't have insurance and was in no way trying to gouge me. I also learned why I've always hated flip flops. I'm looking forward to finding out how the recommendations affect me.
