This doctor is a complete ripoff. I went to him for orthotics and he told me they would be customized for me. After paying $800 for the orthotics, I was not able to run in them. After seeing another doctor and showing him the orthotics Maharam gave me, I was told that they were not customized, that they were fine for a little old lady not a runner. Maharam didn't even make a mold of my foot, I don't know how they can be custom if he just makes them up on his computer. After telling me that with a letter from his office my insurance would pay for the orthotics, I didn't get a penny. He rides on his past experience and doesn't know a thing. Don't see him!

Now that ive spoke about it around town, I realize how many runners he has seen and done the same with. He has a 'deal' with a podiatrist and tells everyone they need orthotics so you go more often. He really seems to like himself and sell himself...lets note, he doesnt even run.||Respond|

Can't say enough good things about him. He's also a sports fanatic! He loves his work and his patients, and he makes you laugh even when you have a bad injury and are in pain. Great man! Kudos!||Respond|

Does not take insurance but I got my out of network benefit back promptly from my insurance. If you want the best, sometimes you just have to pay!||Respond|

Paid (or co-pay): $46500
