“Dr. Jaivin performed surgery on my foot this past February. I had a previous surgery from a doctor from another facility, which had not healed properly. Dr. Jaivin corrected problems, which were not resolved in the previous surgery. I had consulted with several doctors, who would not perform the surgery. I spent months researching doctors. It appeared that Dr. Jaivin was the best doctor for my surgery. Both Dr. Jaivin and his staff were awesome! My medical care and results of my surgery were better than I ever expected. I would recommend Dr. Jaivin to anybody requiring foot surgery!”
