Ratings for Dr. Lawrence G. Karlock
Best foot doctor in the area. He did my bunion surgery and my mothers and neither of one of us had a single complication. He is caring, kind and compassionate. My husband has gone to him as well. Our family would highly recommend hi.m for all of your podiatry needs
On my first appointments, Dr Karlock was compassionate & appeared to be very concerned. As my foot was healing, Dr L Karlock was very rude on several occasions. He surgically repaired contractures in my foot & ankle. He became upset with me, when my foot didn't heal the way that he wanted.. I now have a terrible foot drop & when I walk I have to drag it to the side. On my final appointment, he stood in the doorway & yelled at me. I did not deserve to be treated that way. I now have to wear an AFO brace to walk. He did not warn me that I could end up worse than before the surgery. He was very unprofessional with my mother as well.
I have been going to Dr. Karlock for about a year for plantar fascitis/heel spurs. I have had heel spurs for over 10 years and they were getting progressively worse. I switched to Dr. karlock, he reviewed all my treatments, tried the most conservative treatment of shock wave therapy. That helped temporarily so then we went to achilles tendon heel spur release surgery. I'm not going to lie. It has been a rough road and I am still not completely healed but Dr. Karlock and his staff have been absolutely wonderful. Very patient. Very informative. Very caring. My slow healing process is not the fault of anything Dr. Karlock did or did not do. He has been wonderful through the whole thing.
I was seeing another foot and ankle Dr. for my workers Comp claim. This Dr moved out of the area leaving me to find a new Dr. I found Dr. Karlock and found that he takes workers comp claims. I started seeing Dr. Karlock and if I would have known how compassionate and understanding he is, and how much more he cared about my problem than the other Dr. I was seeing, I would have went to him in the first place. I would highly recommend Dr. Karlock to anyone and everyone.
I went to Dr. Karlock for treatment for plantar fasciitis. I would and have recommended him to anyone with feet or balance problems. He starts with conservative treatments but keeps trying things until something works. He is not a doctor who jumps into surgery and he's into new technology, like sonic wave therapy. As for punctuality, I have never gotten into appointments faster anywhere. I have been in and out in about 7 minutes. (I always saw Dr. Karlock at the Austintown office.) After dealing with him, I really respect podiatrists and the expertise they bring to a wide range of problems. I wish he could be my GP. He has a great personality, was first in his podiatry class (as I recall reading on the wall), and collects shoes for charity. And no, I am not related, just impressed.
