Ratings for Dr. Glen A. Curda
I had a joint in my left foot removed, and bone grafts put in to replace the missing tissue. Dr. Curda was always very professional, punctual to appointments, and made sure I was as comfortable as I could be throughout the entire process. The only piece of constructive criticism I can offer up relates to my recovery time. I was told to expect to be down for at least 8 to 10 week. In reality I was in recovery for about two years. The surgery went well and I was healed as expected. I had not been told of the possibility of nerve damage prior to the operation, but I ended up loosing sensation, and fine motor control, to part of my foot. This resulted in continued pain and limited mobility for around two years. With this said, I have now almost completely recovered and am now completely mobile,walking and running with ease (unable to do this prior to surgery) . I am so happy to have had the procedure done and would readily return to Dr. Curda should I have any other issues.
Dr. Curda was the 3rd podiatrist I saw about my large bunion (the largest one he's seen for a male my age.) I went to him based on some very good recommendations. He more than lived up to the expectations. He was very patient, detailed, and caring throughout the process. He calls daily after the surgery to check up and answer any questions. The repair was incredible - the before and after x-rays are hard to believe. I wish I had heard of Dr. Curda sooner!
Dr. Curda is the best podiatrist on the Eastside and possibly the entire Puget Sound Area. I know because I am an anesthesiologist and have worked with him for years. When it was my turn to have foot problems, I went to the same doctor that ALL the surgical personnel visit for their feet. That is Dr. Glen Curda. He is the only podiatrist I recommend to my many friends. Friendly, kind, knowledgeable, up-to-date...he has it all!
Dr. Curda is by far the best doctor I have ever had. I was born with sever bunions and I have always had excruciating pain from them. Many doctors tried to give me inserts but they never helped. Dr. Curda performed two surgeries on me and I must say he did an amazing job. I've never had normal feet, never been comfortable in anything but flip flops, never not had pain in my feet. For the first time I can say I have no pain and I can wear any shoes I want, and play any sports I want. I'm only 20 years old and to be told that I can't play sports or wear cute shoes was really hard for me. But thanks to Dr. Curda I don't have to worry about any of that anymore! He is the person to see for any foot problems!
If you need foot surgery, you need to go to Dr. Curda. I have had two very successful surgeries, and have to listen to my friends complain about their not so favorable outcomes for the same surgeries by different docs. Really he is the best. If yo follow his recovery instructions, you will not be disappointed.
What I thought was an recurring ingrown nail problem turned out to be a rubbing issue with my shoes. Dr Curda took time to show me what kind of toe pads to get and how to cut them to properly protect my toe while it healed. Also he told me about orthodics which have permanently resolved the problem. His office did not have enough of the toe pads on hand but his staff were every helpful with information on how I could order them myself, saving me one or more trips over to his office on the Eastside. My daughter (an ironman triathlete) is also a very satisfied patient of Dr Curda. Or as she likes to put it, she considers him a part of her support team.
Dr.Curda recently operated on my foot; he's a fabulous surgeon, and has great bedside manner. He always took the time to explain what was going on and what to expect. Very professional but courteous and friendly. Following my surgery, he called me twice a day for 5 days to see how I was recovering and feeling. Would definitely recommend Dr. Curda to anyone having foot problems.
