Dr. Petko provides orthotics for both my wife and me. He's always been focused on our foot health!
Knows his stuff. I have been using the same orthodics for two decades because everytime a podiatrist makes me a new pair, they make matters worse, adding post tib tendinitis to my chronic plantar fasciitis. Dr. Petko not only diagnoses why but prescribed a special orthodic for super-pronators like me.Original recommendation
He also knew that walking around in bare feet (in house or out) really aggravates plantar fasciitis. This is my number 1 flare up preventer but it seldom appears in online or print articles about plantar fasciitis. ...
I would recommend Dr. James Petko/ The Sole Doctor for professional foot care. I was given Dr. Petko's name by a running friend because of persistent pain in my heel. I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis which is a common injury with runners. ... I think this guy is right on. He takes his time explaining things and he really listens. I also liked the fact that he is a runner. I would definitely recommend him.Original recommendation
I have been going to Dr. Petko for years. It is because of his diagnosis and treatments that I was able to run my first marathon in 2000, and I have run pain free ever since, with only the occasional visit to his office. The orthotics he prescribes are expensive, but only because they work and they LAST. I still have the first pair that he made for me and they work fine (although I have got 2 other pairs since then). The office staff is kind and professional and even fun. Cate has been there forever and knows the drill. This is one of the best "doctor" experiences that I have had, and highly recommend for runners looking to run pain free.Original recommendation
