Dr. Breck Tiernan is a superior Podiatrist in every way. He did more to help my right big toe during my first three visits than my previous Podiatrist did in three years—seriously… I highly recommend Dr. Breck Tiernan to anyone in need of outstanding Podiatric care.

– N. Rick

“BEST PODIATRIST I have EVER had the pleasure of working with. Very thorough and speaks to me in a language that I can understand. Is never condescending and instructs me as to what I can expect during and after each visit…”
