Ratings for Dr. Irving Luftig B.Sc., DPM
My 9 year old daughter was treated by Dr Luftig for planters warts . He was great with her and always spoke directly to her but included me in the conversation every visit . 4 visits and the warts are gone . My daughter was never apprehensive about going after first meeting him. Excellent experience
Thought I had planters fashiitis. It was stopping me from doing things to the point where I put on 15 pounds. I had insoles made from a foot clinic on upper James that were makin things worse . When I went to see Dr Luftig he examined me and told me that I didn’t have planters fashiitis but that it was something with a muscle and tendon that started around me knee and attached the foot under the arch . He made a completely diffrent arch support and had me change the type of shoes that I wear . The good thing is that I don’t have pain anymore . The bad thing is that I wasted money and time at the other foot clinic . Dr Luftig is great . He is thorough and very accomplished at his work . I’m really pleased with his level of care . You should go to him
Simple . I saw Dr Luftig for burning and tingling and numbness in my feet . I saw another doctor who told me it was neuropathy and neuritis . She wanted me to go on medication to help it . The medicine didn’t really help . When I saw Dr Luftig he did a far more thorough exam then the other doctor . He didn’t think my problem was neuropathy . He said it was from a dropped metatarsal arch and made arch supports for me . Problem solved !! He is warm , thorough and he sure spent a lot of time examining me with tuning forks and reflex hammers and checking my blood circulation and watching me stand and walk and lots of measuring on my feet . I have Dr Luftig to thank for a better quality of life . Very happy and I would recommend him for any foot issues .
The wait time was minimal, within a couple of weeks. Dr. Luftig was informative, patient and answered all my questions. He is available any time by email . He's an ethical and excellent doctor. He cured my problem and overall it was an excellent experience. Highly recommended.
There are days where he is super busy and it takes a month before you can see him but he is never rushed and he really knows what he’s doing . Knowledgeable, friendly and skilled . He sometimes runs about 20 minutes behind but always apologizes for being delayed. I think Dr Luftig really does try to be on time but what I like the most about him is that he offers up his own email and if there are any questions by email he always responds within a few hours and responds personally. His orthotics are better than any that I have ever had before I saw him and I have been using orthotics for 40 years since I was 14 . Some orthotics are useless but I have been going to him since I was 30 and have never had an issue other than some minor adjustments once in awhile . I like that he follows you at no charge every 6 months or any time you need to see him
I was forever spraining my ankle until Dr Luftig made a brace that I can walk and play tennis in . He took a fibreglass mold of my foot and leg and made the brace . I have no pain and can be almost as active as I want . Had to give up basketball but am back to hiking and tennis . Dr Luftig is smart and respectful as well as pleasant and helpful . He’s a great foot doctor . I’m lucky to have found him
The side of my foot was so sore for about 3 years and I wasn’t getting any help with orthotics from foot clinic and chiropractor . Wasted 1000.00 . I saw Dr Luftig . What a difference . He was so pleasant and I felt comfortable right away with him. He examined me for almost 30 minutes and took X-rays of my foot and ankle . At a following visit 2 weeks later he told me that he felt bad but the orthotics that I got elsewhere weren’t going to help and that orthotics , even if he made them weren’t going to help . I had a collapse of the middle part of my foot and arch from an old back injury and needed a custom brace . He was so pleasant and told me that he had to take a fibreglass casting of my whole foot and leg right up to my knee to make the brace . He told me I could walk and be very active with the brace . I agreed and it took almost 5 weeks to make it but I wear it all the time and I am so pleased . I’m not perfect but I can keep up with my family and friends . Fabulous doctor . I wish I knew about him before . He’s the best . A. H.
I had terrible back pain and sore heels . The supports I got from chiropractor weren't helping at all . Dr Luftig was a months wait for the appointment but I found him to be friendly caring and very comprehensive . He checked me for circulation and nerves and reflexes and standing and walking and up on my toes . The exam took quite awhile and I was an it skeptical when he suggested different arch supports and shock waves but I decided to go with it . He took a cast of my feet and gave me 4 shock waves treatment . The supports are very comfortable and my heel pain is completely clear . Dr Luftig told me that he couldn't predict how my back would be but after 3 months of wearing the supports my back pain is gone . So happy. Fantastic doctor
Dr Luftig saved me from having to continue going for pedicures every month for my sore callouses. 40.00 every month for treating an ingrown nail added up to lots of money . He was very gentle and skilled . Fixed my ingrown nail in one visit and it's been a pleasure
Just like almost all of the other posts , I have only good things to say , I had nagging painful callouses on my feet and sore heels . Dr Luftig made orthodics for me and the callouses are gone and the sore heels are gone . He is professional, pleasant and got the job done . Extremely pleased and have sent some friends and family to him and they consistently praise his work and expertise
