Dr. Ratcliff is excellent very professional friendly & knowledgeable!

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

I found Dr Ratliff very warm, caring and a good listener. He didn't waste my time or money requiring unnecessary X-rays prior to first appt (which was the case for Dr Reilly at RWC whom I cancelled my appt with). we discussed the situation that lead me to the need for the appointment, took care of the issue and advised me how to prevent recurrence in the future. Great appointment! Two thumbs up to Dr Ratcliff!

I have a complex condition that involves foot pain from arthritis, irritated nerves and plantar fasciitis. Other specialists are working on the first two, but Dr. Ratcliffe gave me some very helpful advice about orthoses, shoes and stretches to relieve my PF and increase my mobility.
