I can't imagine a worse podiatrist! To start with, he is extremely unprofessional, as I witnessed him rolling his eyes and mocking elderly patients on several occasions. Saturday morning appointments would also be cancelled last minute or moved later, pretty much being told that he can't make it in early on a weekend! I went to him with shin splints from running, which I had previously had orthotics for before I moved to Chicago. He looked at my feet for about 30 seconds, did not look at me stand, walk, or run, and then had the assistant mold my feet in a non-weight bearing position. When the orthotics came in, I had to make and appointment, but he handed them to me in the waiting room, not even checking them. When I went back having issues with them (blisters, numb feet, painful arches), he again did not look at them and said he would send them back to have some of the arch removed. Not sure how you correct a problem without seeing it. When I finally went to a reputable DPM, they found that I in fact had stress fractures, which he never xrayed or MRI for though I had classic symptoms, and that my orthotics were not doing anything to correct them. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!

Dr. Timothy Kruse was extrememly intelligent and professional. I had surgery on my foot and couldn't have been more please with the outcome. I would recommend him to anyone with any foot or ankle issues.
