I first went to see dr Loftig a year ago for excruciating pain at the back of my heel. I am a hiker and had to completely stop hiking . He was extremely nice and checked my foot . My family doctor told me I had planters fashitis but dr loftig said it was Achilles tendunosus and he put me into a walking boot for 8 weeks and then made inserts for my shoes . I'm back hiking and very grateful . Dr loftig is great and very humble for how much he has helped me . He is very busy and sometimes runs an it late but never rushes you and answers all your questions . Very happy to have him . Ron R

My husband and I are extremely happy with the care that we receive . We have been going to dr luftig for about 25 years for various foot and leg issues and he has always been accommodating and reala helps solve whatever problem we have with expert care . He once picked out a mile on my husbands foot that was precancerous and saved a lot of potential problems by personally calling a dermatologist for an appointment and got us the care he needed . We both reala appreciate how good this doctor is over all the years that we have been seeing him . He has operated on my foot twice for ingrown nail and a hammertoe and the results have been perfect . R. Campbell

Had a bad ingrown toenail that wouldn't go away for over a year and doctor luftig fixed it for me! I'm so happy it's gone!! He froze my toe in the office and called me later that evening to see how I was feeling . He is truly caring and an expert in foot care . The real deal

I turned my ankle over 2 years ago . Went to emergency and they sent me home with a tensor bandage and crutch . It was still very sore a year later whenever I tried hiking or walking for long periods . I went to see Dr Luftig and he tested my ankle strength and took another set of X-rays . He was great and very comforting . He diagnosed me with a peroneal tear at the bottom of my 5th toe bone and gave me a compression sleeve and made some custom arch supports to stabilize my foot . Pain has been completely gone starting a month after he fitted the supports . I am very grateful to him. Kind and caring and he insists on following up . He is excellent

A hard spot between my toes had been so uncomfortable for years . The only treatment I had found was to have it scraped down every couple of months for some relief and one toe was bending into the next . So sore . I went to see Dr Luftig on a friend's advice and he got rid of my problem in 2 visitists . It's now been 2 years pain free and comfortable. I just went to see him for a yearly followup . He is wonderful and friendly and warm . Happy to have him in Hamilton

My 13 year old son had terrible pain whenever he walked or tried to play sports . One doctor wanted to put him in a cast and then a clunky ankle brace . It started at age 10 and had been going on for 3 years . We took him to physiotherapy and acupuncture and bought different arch supports and nothing helped . A friend recommended Dr Luftig . He was so nice and comforting and did a very complete examination that nobody else had done before . He spent half hour just examining him and talking to us . My son felt very comfortable with him. Dr Luftig diagnosed him with a growth plate issue in his heels and explained that the growth plate at the back of his heels was grating against the bone because his heel turned out . He said that it was a self limiting problem that would probably go away by age 15 or 16 but that he could be made completely cofortable with a specific type of custom arch support and using ankle height basketball runners . Dr Luftig took a cast of his feet and made the supports and then we got the shoes from Sportchek . The pain was completely gone within a month and our son is back to sports and is a completely new person. We are so pleased with the level of care we received . Dr Luftig is wonderful. Take your foot problems to him , and don't fool around with anything else . Rita N

Dr Luftig is extremely competent, very attentive, skilled , and has a sympathetic disposition. I highly recommend him . He runs very close to schedule most of the time . On occasion there is a 20 minute delay , but he always apologizes if he is running a bit late . He always gives you his personal email if there are any problems or questions .

I waited a month to see Dr Luftig but worth the wait for sure. I needed surgery to fix my ingrown nails and he did it in his office . Both sides of both big toes and no more pain . He was great !!

The doctor saw my 9 year old son for his sore heels . He asked my son all the questions directly and made him feel very comfortable . His heels were sore because of the growth plate in his bone and all of his activity . Dr Luftig made special insoles for him and he has been pain free for over a year and can play all of his sports again . We are very grateful
