Dr. Pitzer is a caring person and amazing physician who goes out of her way to take care of her patients. Thanks Dr. Pitzer.
Dr Pitzer did surgery on both of my feet. I had heel Spurs on my Achilles’ tendon. Long recovery process but well worth it. She is an amazing doctor!
Dr Pitzer cured my plantar fasciitis! It made all the difference in the world since I was on my feet teaching all day!
I had all but given up on getting relief for my Achilles Fasciitis. Ortho doctors had said to treat it with Advil and learn to live with it. My wife suggested I see Dr. Amy. She explained the condition much better to me. After trying a couple different medications Dr Amy tried a combination of Topical Voltarren and Oral Voltarren. I am as close to pain free as I can be without surgery. Dr Pitzer did what no other doctors could. She didn't give up until she got results.Bravo Dr. Amy. Bravo
Broke my foot 4 months ago and Dr Pitzer and staff got me back on my feet in record time. Would definitely say Family Foot & Ankle Physicians are the only ones to see for podiatry care.
Dr. Pitzer performed surgery on my husband's foot. She is knowledgeable and really cares about her patient. We're thankful that the Lord led him to her office.
