Heel Pain

“I’ve dealt with plantar fasciitis for as long as I can remember. It’s was painful when I walked barefoot, and especially when I put weight on my feet in the morning. The only relief I got was from cushioned inserts which were uncomfortable and didn’t work completely. I needed a podiatrist in Cranberry. First off, I was blown away when Dr. Teimouri answered her own phone, and we set up an appointment immediately. Secondly, she has very friendly staff who made me feel comfortable the second I walked in the door. She personally answered all my questions and told me she could help. Here’s the best part: She used something called Shockwave Therapy (Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy) which I hadn’t heard of anywhere else. I couldn’t believe it, and sometimes still can’t, that I had nearly instant relief, and that it took about 25 minutes. She also prescribed insoles which weren’t as padded but were much, much better than the ones I’d been using. It’s been over a year and I still feel great. I’d recommend Dr. Tina to anyone.”

Plantar Fasciitis

Dr. Teimouri is an outstanding physician. It’s rare nowadays to find someone knowledgeable, fast, thorough and observant that genuinely cares about what she does. I’d recommend her to anyone, for any type of foot problem, without reservations.
Here’s my story. For several years I’ve dealt with plantar fasciitis. I’d gone to a few doctors including two different podiatrists, and really hadn’t found a solution. Both recommended I do stretches, which didn’t help. The second one came right out and said surgery was my only real option. Desperate, I searched local podiatrists, found excellent reviews for Dr. Tina, and made an appointment.
Now I’m giving her an excellent review! Dr. Teimouri recommended something called Shockwave (Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy). She said she’d seen patients like me hundreds of times, many of whom were considering surgery, and it had worked for them. Shockwave worked wonders. After treatment, my pain steadily got better and better. At four months out, there is absolutely no soreness in my heel at all.
She also noticed my vein problems. I’d had ugly, bulging varicose veins for many, many years and had really lost track of how bad my legs ached. I thought my legs were supposed to feel heavy. I went in for an ultrasound a few days later, and scheduled another procedure that was actually fairly quick and easy. It took about an hour! Now my legs don’t hurt as much, and they don’t feel heavy at all.
I believe that Dr. Tina saved me from unnecessary surgery that would have probably cost me thousands. It would have been invasive, painful, and I would have missed work. I have no doubt that surgery would have been a disaster and I’m very grateful. Dr. Teimouri is fantastic.

Laser Treatment for Nail Fungus

It’s embarrassing to talk about, but I suffered with toenail fungus for well over ten years. My nails were thickened, yellow, and constantly looked like they had stuff trapped underneath them. They weren’t smooth and weren’t even shaped correctly, mine had ridges and were crooked. They were awful, and still looked horrible with polish. Open toed shoes and sandals were not an option, even in July. I tried all of the over-the-counter stuff, literally all of it, and nothing my doctor did worked either.
I heard about Dr. Teimouri from a friend who saw her for tendonitis and was highly satisfied. I figured I had nothing to lose, so I made an appointment. I’m very, very glad I did because it’s been 3 months and my nails have grown out normally! The treatments were quick and painless, I wish I had come to her in the first place. I’m not embarrassed by my feet anymore and can wear sandals again!
Overall Dr. Teimouri is excellent. Her staff is excellent. The entire experience was good. She’s friendly, fast, and explained what she was doing, which meant a lot. She’s the only person I’ve heard of that treats toenail fungus, and she helped me immensely. I’d go back without hesitation and recommend her for any foot problems. Totally satisfied.
