Ratings for Dr. Russell Samofal


My daughter, who was 2 years old at the time, was not walking straight and the situation was getting so bad that we gave Tylenol several days a week to alleviate the nightly knee pain. Dr. Samofal knew the issue instantly and was very good in explaining it to my wife and I. He said since we caught the problem early, we can fix it without any surgery. That was great news. Dr. Samofal gave us orthotics and showed us exercises to do. My daughter is 4 now and we have seen Dr. Samofal several times since the first visit. Her problem is getting better and she no longer has any knee pain. Dr. Samofal has been instrumental and pleasant throughout the entire time. His staff is great too. I highly recommend the Podiatry Center of New Jersey!
