I have recommended him to many people and will continue to do the same.  Respond

15/03/13 5 5 5 5 I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Aaronson and his staff! We had gone to another local podiatrist for my son's ingrown toenails, and had a very negative experience. We got another referral from his Pediatrician and they referred us to Dr. Arronson. My son was very nervous and apprehensive based on his previous visit, and we were greeted at the front office by a very sweet and knowledgeable front office employee. We did not wait long to see the Dr. and he was exceptionally friendly and made every effort to help my son feel at ease. He explained everything about the upcoming procedure he recommended for my son, and we were then scheduled for his appointment in a timely manner. The procedure was done and my son had every step explained to him throughout. We were treated with the utmost respect during every visit. I feel like we were taken care of wonderfully and respectfully. We highly recommend Dr. Arronson!  Respond

24/02/13 5 5 5 5 I went to see Dr Aaronson to find out my options. I already had some knowledge. He confirmed what I expected and was very helpful with giving me all my options. He was very flexible when I had to reschedule my pre-op visit. His staff was very helpful in guiding me to the right place to find the shoes I needed to go back to work. He has one night he takes late appointments which is a plus. I am very pleased with the results of my procedure.  Respond

04/02/13 5 4 5 5 Dr Craig Aaronson has a helpful and friendly personality. He is very knowledgeable. I have been seeing him for over a year for foot pain, swelling and discomfort. He eventually did a joint replacement surgery in my right foot. It was a successful surgery and while I am still healing, it has considerably helped my problem. Dr Aaronson's office is comfortable and his staff is very courteous, professional and friendly. I have recommended him to several friends and family members and feel confidant in doing so. Sometimes he is running behind schedule for appointments, but I believe it is because he takes his times with each patient and never rushes you through.

11/12/12 5 1 5 5 I have been a Nurse for 20 years. I feel Dr. Aaronson had excellent bedside manner, true empathy and very knowledgeable. My husband sees him and liked him also. I was told not to trust any podiatrist in Fresno, however he is a gem! He diagnosed, explained, answered my questions and treated me with a steroid injection and ordered orthotics. His orthotics were reasonably priced. His staff was fabulous! Great people. I will defininately continue to see him and recommend him to anyone who needs to see a podiatrist. I'm grateful for the treatment and care received. Thank you Dr. Aaronson. Oh, he also gives you access to your medical record online..a nice bonus. Thanks to his fantastic staff...and I don't say that lightly. As a Nurse and company owner, I'm very picky about how I'm treated and others too. This was a great encounter even though the injection hurt like crazy! Thanks again!

15/11/12 5 5 5 5 I have availed myself of Dr. Arronson's services on two occasions related to heel spurs. In addition to a cortisone injection, he recommended a few self-administered treatments/exercises I could do at home. The next visit was about 3 years later with an injection in the other heel and a recommendation for an orthodic in my shoes. He and his staff took measurements and ordered the inserts. I shopped for them online and the Dr.'s price was comparable to, or less than the other prices. I returned for a fitting, and am please to say the pain has never returned. It's been about 5 years since my last visit and I have recommended Dr. Aaronson on at least three occasions.  Respond

14/11/12 5 5 5 5 Finally a doctor's visit that made me feel better immediately! Walk in with sore toes, dance out with no pain. Dr. Aa & crew are awesome. He is quick with his procedure and my toes feel wonderful for weeks afterward. My husband is also happy with his toes after our visit. We have awful, thick toenails that are so much better since we have become Dr. Aa's patients. Now if I could just get him to apply the polish they would look as pretty as they feel.

13/11/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Aaronson performed a very complicated and difficult surgery on my left foot. Two badly dislocated toes,a hammer toe, and a bunion was removed. I want to thank him for his expertise and excellent skills. Dr. Aaronson and his staff are absolutely wonderful!! He always takes time to answer the many questions I might have and has a genuine concern for his patients an their results. Today just 2 1/2 months later - I am walking and wearing shoes again! I was wearing a boot 2 months before surgery, because the pain was so bad. GREAT JOB AND MANY THANKS DR. AARONSON!!!!!

08/08/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Aaronson is an excellent podiatrist. I went to two doctors before him who were unable to diagnose and treat my condition properly. I suffered a lot of pain from wounds that would not heal on my foot. Dr. Aaronson immediately knew what was wrong with me and prescribed medicine that worked quickly and instructed me how to treat the wounds. He was a very nice person and I would definitely go back to him. I highly recommend him.  Respond

07/08/11 5 3 5 5 I am Dr. Aaronson- and want it known that I consider myself extremely consciencious, caring, and very competant in podiatry. With the huge patient volume I have encountered since 1987, I estimate 99% are delighted with my care. I wish it were 100%. To those 1% not happy with me, let me assure them it is not due to lack of caring or competance-and I wish them well. To those who are happy, I thank them for entrusting their health to me.  Respond

12/07/11 2 2 1 1 Botched the bunion surgery, resulting in staph infection (did not believe my pain, then misdiagnosed the whole thing until my family doctor diagnosed it) and permanently painful toe dislocation ... Very painful! Wouldn't stand behind his work! I ended up having to quit my job(painful walking) and had more surgeries in an attempt to fix his mistakes. After almost two years in casts, needed physical therapy (at my expense of $7000) I ended up with dizziness from an adjustment, then fell down stairs, more physical therapy ... just a mess, no work anymore either, therefore no monies to help me pay these bills. He really wrecked my life!
