Mission Statement/Office Philosophy
Our purpose is to provide you with the highest quality medical and surgical care of your foot and ankle problems. One of our treatment goals is to educate you about the nature of your problem, and explain the treatment options available. By education you about the nature of your complaint you become an active participant in your care and treatment. We strongly feel that your involvement improves the quality of your care.
Dr. Fjelstad's philosophy is to treat you like you were member of his family. A treatment recommendation is the same treatment he would recommend to a family member with the same complaint.
Lastly, we like to have fun in our profession. We like to get to know our patients, and enjoy conversing with them. It helps to set you apart from other patients and can improve the patient care and patient outlook.
