Dr Luftig fixed my hammered toes and painful balls of my feet pain without having to operate on them by making arch supports that forced my toes to be straighter . I can wear them in all my walking shoes . He did a wonderful job. Very happy with his care and his demeanour . Very warm and very respectful

It only took a few days to see Dr Luftig because my doctor had tried to temove what she thought was a piece of glass from my foot 3 times and it didn’t help . She asked Dr Luftig to see me and he waited after his normal hours for me which was really a nice surprise . He took my medical history down and then used a kind of microscope that he said can see under the skin . He pulled out a white-pink piece of a sea shell that I had stepped on and the pain is gone . I see him in a month for one checkup but so far so good and pain is gone . Very excellent doctor .

Dr Luftig was really great with fixing the pain from my hammertoes. The surgery went well and he called me the night of the procedure to see how I was doing . Excellent hands and excellent bedside manner

My broken fifth long bone in my foot was. Sent home with a crutch . No cast . I saw Dr Luftig and he checked my foot and asked why I wasn’t put into a walking boot . He gave me a walking boot that he had in the office and took care of it properly . It has healed well and I’m very happy with his care . He doesn’t beat around the bush but spends as long as needed until things are right . I like him a lot .

Patti the regular secretary is off for awhile with a broken collarbone . Her replacement Debbie was Dr Luftig’s previous secretary for almost 20 years and has filled in admirably . Dr Luftig has been my podiatrist for over 30 years and he has taken care of my diabetic feet, my sons and daughters ingrown nail surgeries and my husbands heel spur pain with excellent orthotics. My entire family rates him 5 stars because of how kind and gentle he has always been and he is expert in his field . A truly wonderful doctor

my Left foot was killing me ever since I did a hiking trip along the Bruce trail a couple of years ago . I had arch supports from an arch support chain store that my family doctor sent me to. They didn’t help at all and the pain was getting worse . I went to see Dr Luftig and he examined me and xrayed my foot and found a broken sezmoyd bone underneath my big toe joint . Don’t know why I wasn’t sent for X-rays by my family doctor but Dr Luftig made proper arch supports for me and I’m looking forward to hiking again this summer because my pain is completely gone Thanks to this really good doctor . He is very patient with my questions and sees me for follow ups every 3-4 months without charging me . His arch supports seem to be so different than what I got from the chain store and I have already sent a few friends to him , they are all happy with his treatments also . I am very pleased with his level of care and his staff are friendly and efficient with giving me the paperwork for my insurance and making follow up appointment s

Did a great job fixing my sons ingrown toenail. Surgery was with local freezing in his office . Result was excellent . My son nd Dr Luftig both play guitar and the doctor has a bit of a collection of acoustic and electric guitars so they hit it off really well. Dr Luftig even offered to teach my son some old Beatles guitar chords and songs after work one day. That won my son over but his work was excellent and the result was also excellent

Why is foot care not covered by Ohip? Dr Luftig is far and away the best in Hamilton. I pay out of my pocket for his top notch foot care and without him I would easily have lost my foot . He is caring and a great foot doctor. There are so many people who would benefit from his expertise but we would be so much better off if it was covered by the province . Dr Luftig told me he has been practicing for almost 38 years and it has never been covered and he doesn’t expect that it ever will. It’s a shame because he is the best

Excellent care. Precise and to the point . I was told that I needed a fusion of my ankle by another doctor . I went to see Dr Luftig and he examined me , reviewed all of my CT scans and Ultrasounds and suggested that he would do his best to help me and not to have the fusion of my ankle . Dr Luftig had me in a second time at the end of one of his regular days and spent a full 40 minutes doing all sorts of strength testing and watching me walk and stand ,etc . He took a plaster cast of my feet and made a fabulous set of orthotics and sent me to Mountain Co-op in Burlington for ankle height walking shoes and hiking shoes . I was in terrible pain before I saw him and I am now 80-85% better . I am able to walk and stand and be active thanks to this Doctor . Thank you so much for letting me avoid ankle fusion surgery . Dr Kuftig told me that this treatment will buy me 15-20 years before I might have to revisit surgery and I am so grateful

Dr Luftig has saved my feet for 22 years . I am diabetic and have poor circulation and without his expert care I could easily have had some amputated toes or worse . He has been so helpful over all these years by taking care of my feet
