• I have had several foot surgeries from 12/2013 to Aug 2016. Obviously, I trust and respect my surgeon, Dr. Jessica Prebish. Not only would I refer Dr. Prebish, I would also share how efficient & pleasant the staff is at both offices in Gilbert.

  • I shattered my foot at the age of 13 and I underwent reconstructive foot surgery with Dr Nakra. I have not had any problems since, in fact I just won a silver medal in the Olympics. I’d say my foot works pretty darn good.

    ~ Sam Dorman – 2016 Olympic Silver Medalist

  • I was referred to Dr. Nguyen by a family member after having seen several other Podiatrists. His bedside manner is charming and he listens to my concerns making me feel like I have a voice in my treatment plan. I wish I would have found him sooner!
