by in Patient Stories February 5, 2015

Provider Name: Dr. Cole Hosenfeld

How did you hear about our group? Dr. Vilardi, Podiatrist.

How long have you been a patient? Since August 15, 2014.

What was your medical issue (in your own words) when you first started coming to our office?

My main complaint was my left leg. I was told I would eventually have to use a wheelchair. Also, my back hurt a lot almost all of the time.

Tell us a little bit about your experience in our office:

Dr. Cole is wonderful! All the employees are friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. You do not have to wait over five minutes to be called back for your appointment!

How would you describe your health now?

My leg is great. I had to have surgery. Thanks to Dr. Cole, he was able to find my problem. My back still hurts but not as bad.

How has your improved health changed your life overall?

Just being able to walk again without pain has changed my life overall! I could not walk from one end of my house to the other end and now I can walk anywhere!

What is something you are proud of (or looking forward to) now that you are feeling better?

I can now walk with no pain. I am looking forward to walking every day for exercise.

Is there anything that you have noticed about our office that sets us apart from other clinics?

The staff is the extra friendly and the office overall is very clean.

Notes from Dr. Cole: Billy is a great example of why it is important to look at the cause of a patient’s pain. It can be different than typical presentation. She is a great patient to work with!
