An absolutely amazing experience. Dr. Ciment is an absolutely wonderful person - it is very evident that he truly cares about his patients.  Each time I go in it feels like I am catching up with a friend.  But most importantly, Dr. Ciment is EXTREMELY knowledgeable.  He also has a very strong sense of integrity - he has not recommended any more than is required and takes a very conservative approach to treatment which I really appreciate.  I will definitely continue to see him in the future.

I really, really like Dr. Ciment.  He is a skilled surgeon with a really wonderful bedside manner -- something you rarely find. 
He treated me a few years ago when I had a broken foot, and then again in Sept 2014 for surgery on the other foot. While surgery is never fun, Dr. Ciment made it pretty easy.  He really helped me understand my procedure, patiently answering all my questions (including really important ones like: "will I wear high heels again?"), and put my fears at ease. It has been just over 2 weeks since I had my surgery.  I have had almost no pain, minimal swelling, and am on the road to what will hopefully be a speedy recovery. 

Michael, the office manager, is also terrific. He always greets you with a smile and has been very helpful throughout the process. 

I also should mention, that unlike other specialists, this office doesn't overbook, forcing you to wait for an hour before seeing the doctor.

Dr. Ciment treated my broken foot and helped me avoid surgery by treating the patient as well as the injury. He explained in intelligent detail my injury and what would delay and encourage healing. With a pretty nasty break, I was back in action after several weeks. I would send family and friends to Dr. Ciment without hesitation.

I highly recommend Dr. Ciment. He is terrific: thorough, experienced, smart, generous with his time and extremely knowledgable - a true expert in his field. The fact that he is also very caring and kind and goodhearted and funny is a terrific plus!!

I was referred to Dr. Ciment for a running and indoor rebounder injury to my left foot. Having never been to a podiatrist I had no idea what to expect. Upon my arrival he took a full history as he wanted to make sure there were no hidden issues plaguing me. As his office is complete with state-of-the-art equipment (and perhaps the most comfortable chair in the business), he was able to x-ray me on-site  -  the convenience of which was a complete life saver. He diagnosed and explained the issue and created a treatment plan. He then followed up with a phone call and email, which was a wonderful surprise and a rarity for doctors these days. I have since returned with another issue in my other foot that he was immediately able to accurately diagnose and for which, he referred me to a fabulous (!) physical therapist. 

*Seeing Dr. Ciment has changed the course of my life. I know that sounds over-the-top, but it's really true. He has generously referred me on to other fantastic healthcare professionals who have helped me immeasurably with issues I thought were untreatable. And he's done this with nothing in it for himself, except the knowledge and satisfaction that he's helping his patient. And for the first time in almost two years I'm feeling better and stronger - all because of Dr. Ciment's interest and dedication and kindness. 

Dr. Ciment's office manager Michael is also wonderful. He too is kind and sweet and very professional. No question is too small - no request, too big. They are a wonderful team!

I have since happily referred friends and colleagues to Dr. Ciment and Michael - and will continue to do so as they are gems!
