Testimonials

“My daughter hurt her heel in soccer practice this week and after seeing another doctor, we decided to go to McDowell Podiatry. Sure glad we did. 

After reviewing the other doctor’s X-rays and taking his own, doing an ultrasound to inspect her tendons and any potential fractures Dr. Ripp examined her foot, watching her walk up the hall and even running a blind test to check for pain-sensitive areas in various areas of the Achilles tendon, toes, calf, etc.

Ultimately the prognosis made sense and she was fitted with a brace and he recommended new supportive running shoes due to slight pronation.

I found the staff to be very caring and sweet and Dr. Ripp extremely thorough, credible, conscientious and wise in considering ways for her to avoid this injury in the future.”

“Saw Dr. Ripp this morning and it was a refreshing experience. He is professional, nice and I didn’t feel pressure to buy, spend on practices not covered by my insurance. I had an extremely bad experience with the previous podiatrist that I saw in another office.

Dr. Ripp restored my confidence. I highly recommend him.”

“Great clinic! Very clean and staff is very friendly. Dr. Steven Medawar is the best, very nice, friendly and funny! You can tell he loves his job. Removed my mom’s bunion and fixed her second toe. You can’t even see the scar.”

“I found McDowell Orthopedics & Podiatry Group online and took a chance. I quickly made an appointment. My first visit was a great experience for me after my usual podiatrist. Thank you Dr. Gavin Ripp for taking the time to do some tests and talk to me personally about the problems. I am looking forward to moving forward.”

“Today I had the most wonderful and enjoyable procedure done on a bad big toe at McDowell’s medical office. I had been putting it off until recently when it was re-injured while wearing the wrong pair of shoes. In fact, as I told Dr. Medawar, I was in pain recently from an unfamiliar pair of shoes which pressed on the offending toe and caused me to make a “California Stop” at a stop sign near my house. I received my first traffic citation in more than fifty years of driving! I was so anxious to get the shoe off and immediately called Dr. Medawar.  

I highly recommend McDowell Orthopedics & Podiatry Group. It was a great experience and I am most grateful to have received help from them. Thanks Dr. Medawar and team!”

“I brought my daughter into Dr. Ripp for a severed tendon in her foot. He got us in right away and did an excellent job and was very caring and thoughtful when explaining what needed to be done with my 14-year-old. He performed a re-attachment procedure which went great. We are so grateful to him for the great job he did and the caring way he took care of our little girl! Thanks, Dr. Ripp!”

“Dr. Ripp did an incredible job fixing my 4-year-old’s left foot! We were so glad we chose him! Dr. Ripp is great with kids and calmed our worries as he worked through the diagnosis.

We could not be more happy with the work of Dr. Ripp and the outcome of the procedure. Our little is now running around all over!

Thank you Dr. Ripp … you are an awesome foot doctor!”

“Dr. Ripp is great! It’s hard to find a caring, compassionate, knowledgeable doctor. Dr. Ripp fits the bill. He takes the time to get to know his patients and doesn’t push any agenda. He presents options and advice so you are free to make your own decision.

The office staff here is also great. Appointments are always on time. Staff is friendly and efficient.”
