"For the past several years I had been in a lot of pain and discomfort with my feet. I developed bunions early on in my 20's. Up to that point I put up with the discomfort only to realize that it was affecting every part of my body. The staff at HSS, from the receptionist to the nurses and anethesiologist, and Dr. Elliott himself and everyone who worked in the same- day surgery unit, made me feel safe and very comfortable up and until the time of surgery . I was given undivided attention even afterward. My pain was managed so efficiently, I went home that day."
