Testimonials

"I went in to Westwood Foot Clinic for treatment of an ingrown toenail. I was really nervious and Dr. Silver ad\nd Stella were very reassuting and explained the procedure to me and calmed me down. The procedure was quick and painless. I even got a follow up email from Dr. Silver the night after my visit. I would recommend Dr. Silver and his team to anyone needing his service."
