Here's what our patients have to say about their experience at PA Foot and Ankle Associates. If you had a great experience with us, please let us know
"I recently had bunion surgery done by Dr. Rocchio and I am very, very happy with the outcome! He spent a lot of time with me prior to surgery answering all of my questions. The surgery itself went perfect! I had heard many stories of how painful bunion surgery could be but I'm happy to say it wasn't that way for me. Minimal pain 1-2 days post-op and then icing and Advil has kept me pain free. No crutches needed at all. Getting around in my boot and feeling good! The incision is small and my foot looks perfect. Dr. Rocchio explained to me how he used a sonic pin instead of screws or metal plates and wires to hold the bone in place. This pin then disappears after about 4 years when my own bone has mended and grown. Sounded really kind of brilliant to me. I'm in the medical field myself, a registered nurse, so believe me when I say I can be a very tough critic when it comes to my own medical care. But I can say that Dr. Rocchio is the best! I would highly recommend him!"

"I came to Dr. Teichman because of heel pain. Just 3 weeks later, I am almost pain free!"
- Chuck Domino, President, Lehigh Valley IronPigs
"Dr. Rocchio is great! First I was in the hospital with a foot injure (sp) and I had puff gas and I fell a sleep (sp) and I had to count to 5 but I only counted to 3. They gave me fruit cups and took good care of me".
- by Jakan, to Docter Rocahio (sp) - written by child patient
"The best thing I did was to have the fat pad surgery on my left foot by Dr. Rocchio. I suffered for years with callus on the bottom of my foot and now I am callus-free. Also, I could never walk barefoot because of the pain in the ball of my feet. Since I had the surgery on the left foot, I can walk barefoot. I am so happy with the results, I have scheduled surgery for my right foot. Thank God for Doctor Rocchio."
- Alma P.
"Gabriella was two years old, and we brought her into the office with a large toe that had a very large cut from a heavy metal table falling on her. She was bleeding and they wanted to get the bleeding under control along with emergency stitches to protect her from losing her toe. Thanks to all, they saved her toe with minimal scarring. The nail looks beautiful and she is a happy and healthy 5-year old. Thank-you to the Doctors and staff for their hard work."
- Nicole A.
"I want to thank Dr. Teichman for a great experience and results with my heel pain. After dealing with it for 2+ years, I came to the office ready to give up on an active lifestyle. Dr. Teichman changed that for me. I'm walking pain free and ready to return to regular activity as a runner and golfer - that is good news to share."
- Sue S., Macungie, PA
"When I met Dr. Rocchio, I had sores on the bottom and back of my feet. It was questionable if I would have to have my feet amputated... I feel that of it wasn't for Dr. Rocchio and his nurses I wouldn't be walking today and have my way of life back... Because of them my life is back to normal."
- Linda S.
"I was well taken care of by Dr. Rocchio. He explained everything in a way you understood what was happening. We just found out he operated on our great-great niece, and her parents also think the world of Dr. Rocchio. We will highly recommend him to everyone."
- George and Jo S.
"I am pleased with the end result of my bunion surgery. Great job, I love my foot!"
"My right foot injury was very severe, needing surgery and pins. I imagined lifelong pain or discomfort or other consequences. Now after surgical procedures by Dr. Teichman and careful follow-up, I am completely pain free and able to stand a slong as I want to at work. I was impressed with the attention from staff. Much appreciation."
-Ouida D., Allentown, PA
"Dr. Rocchio and Staff - Just wanted to let you know how grateful I am to you all for your kindness and compassion and the care you gave me during time. It was so stressful & frightening that it was traumatizing for me. I am relieved that the whole experience can be put behind me. You're truly a group of very special people
- Cassandra S.
"I was suffering from terrible heel pain and my job requires me to be on my feet 7 ½ hours a day and includes a lot of walking on a hard tile floor. I also had pain in my big toe joint. By the middle of my shift I was extremely uncomfortable and wished I could sit and take my shoes off. After work I did not want to be on my feet at all.
"My primary care doctor recommended PA Foot & Ankle very highly, so I made an appointment. Dr. Teichman fixed me up in no time! The cortisone shot and shoe inserts took away my heel pain and foot pain. I am amazed at the improvement and easily get through my work day without thoughts of removing my shoes! I wish I had come to PA Foot & Ankle sooner. I put up with a lot of suffering needlessly! Thank you Dr. Teichman!"
- Diane S.
"During surgery, my left ankle bone was separated from the tibia and fibula. The joint was then cleaned out and 12 pins were placed inside to keep the bones from touching, to allow new cartilage to form. Two halos were then placed on my ankle and a black U-shaped device was placed on the bottom of my foot. After [physical therapy], I went back to St. Luke's to have the pins taken out and receive a soft cast and later, a boot was placed on my left foot. Thank you very much, Dr. Rocchio, for all of your help and helping me to walk pain-free."
- Stephanie G.
"I had real bad arch pain caused by dancing. Dr. Teichman gave me braces and sent me to PT [physical therapy]. He did a really great job!!! I am still dancing and without pain."
- Alison P.

- Katie D.
“After receiving shock wave treatment, pain was relieved. I was very active physically, and due to pain, I was not able to continue my physical activities or wear certain shoes until I received the treatment. More practices should use the treatment instead of pushing surgery first.”
- Ann A.
"Dr. Teichman is unbelievable. He is amazing. I thought I would have a lot of pain after surgery. Scale of 1-10, pain was 1.5. The staff has been wonderful and courteous. Shoutout to Holly also. I am so thankful for Holly. I've been working with her with all my paperwork and she has been great. I'm doing better quicker than I thought. I'm planning on doing my other foot right away."
- Cathy M.

- Dawn K.
“I was diagnosed with nail fungus 2 years ago. I got 4 laser treatments and used antifungal solution and shoe sanitizer. I had a lot of pain in my toes from it and couldn’t even stand the bed sheets on my toes. Now, I’m pain free and very thankful to Dr. Teichman.”
- Rebecca R.
“Dr. Teichman did an excellent job. I had burning in my feet and pain in my heels. I couldn’t walk and I felt like quitting my job. He gave me injections and orthotics and now I have no pain. I’m 100% better!”
- Mary G.
“I had plantar fasciitis. Dr. Teichman sent me for physical therapy at Robbins Rehab. It was a miracle!! I had no more pain. If I feel like I have a problem I just use my boot. I don’t know what kind of problems I may have had if I didn’t meet Dr. Teichman. He really helped. I worked at a cafeteria with cement floor but since I got the boot and physical therapy it’s been great!!.”
- Audrey O.
“I am totally happy and pleased with the outcome of this. I highly recommend Dr. Teichman if you have anything wrong with your feet. This is the place to come.”
- Phyllis C.
"Thanks to Dr Teichman and staff, now 5 weeks post surgery and all is improved. Wish I would have had my surgery sooner. The post surgery care and concern was wonderful."
- Howard S.
“Three doctors gave me an opinion to amputate my leg above the knee. I almost gave into these opinions, when a friend of mine heard Bobby Gunther Walsh talking about Dr. Teichman on his radio show we contacted him. I called and made an appointment for one last opinion. Dr. Teichman was confident that he could save my leg. After reconstruction of my foot with surgery, I was able to walk after 2 months. I would highly recommend Dr. Teichman to anyone that has a foot problem and please use him as your first choice. Dr. Teichman saved my life!"
“Dr. Teichman is the best podiatrist. He’s not only the best for the feet, but he has a great personality and puts a person at ease. I recommend him to anyone.”
“Stabbing and shooting pains have diminished. Also, cramps in foot and leg have improved”.
“When I came to Dr. Teichman I was experiencing such horrible heel pain it was difficult to do day-to-day activities. The thought of taking a walk was out of the question. Now, after one visit with Dr. Teichman, I am pain free and I have my life back. Thank you, Dr. Teichman, for prescribing the best personal treatment for my heel issue”.
“My feet are in the best shape ever, thanks to Dr. Teichman at PA Foot & Ankle and his extremely qualified staff; also very friendly and beautiful”
“I had a lot of pain. I couldn’t walk or bend my toes, then I came to see Dr. Teichman and he recommended surgery and I haven’t had pain since. He did a very good job”.
“I’ve had painful arches for many years and the heels of my shoes were wearing much faster than they used to. Dr. Teichman fitted me with custom orthotics. The results were instantaneous. I can now walk much further and stand for much longer periods without pain, thanks to Dr. Teichman."
“Prior to coming to Dr. Teichman, I would walk an hour and then after I would have excruciating pain in my toe. After 3 injections, I am pain free after walking. I would recommend Dr. Teichman highly after having very good results after the treatments. Also, may I add that the medical staff here are very good and concerned about their job”.
"Dr. Teichman is really nice and gentle, and he does a great job. I had an ingrown toenail and he was great."

"Before ESWT I was in pain all the time and my entire way of living was totally changed! After ESWT and by following the recommendations of heat application and stretching and always wearing proper footwear…..I am 100% pain free!... I hope to train for my first post ESWT race and participate in a ½ marathon in the spring of 2012. Without the ESWT I know my running days would have been over! Thank you getting me back to running."
"Dr. Adam Teichman is the very best Podiatrist in the Lehigh Valley; he knows how to make each day more valuable to you!
"In 2007, I was suffering from severe pain in my left ankle. There were so many times I needed to ice hours on end just to keep the swelling down. I had surgery on my ankle the previous summer by a surgeon in the Lehigh Valley but my ankle did not get any better, it was actually worse than before surgery. I was told by the surgeon to just work through the pain and take pain medication, which would just mask the pain. At this point my surgeon was recommending me to other surgeons in the area because there was nothing more he could have done for me. As you could imagine this made me very frustrated... I thought there was no help in the area until I talked to Robbins Rehabilitation who suggested that I should have my ankle evaluated by Dr. Teichman.
"Dr. Teichman explained my treatment options to me and suggested we try a non-surgical route first and then if that failed we should talk about surgery. Dr. Teichman assured my wife and I that everything would be ok, and not to worry and he would try his hardest to make me pain free without medication. We worked together on this for about two months. Things started progressing in the right direction. I was feeling good; however, not 100%. I asked Dr. Teichman about the different alternatives for my ankle problem and I brought up surgery again. When discussing my options, Dr. Teichman stated he was able to perform a state of the art procedure that was going to eliminate my pain and only keep me out of work for a very short period of time. After discussing this with my wife, we were very confident that Dr.Teichman would be able to help and surgery was the right option.
"Now two years later I am PAIN FREE and back to an active lifestyle. I would definitely recommend Dr. Teichman."
"Dear Dr. Teichman,
I am overjoyed that I went through with the surgery on my foot. Now I will not fall when I run for no reason. I hated not being able to move my body like I was supposed to. Thank you for your help.
P.S. You are funny!"
C.R. 9 yo female
"I suffered from chronic heel pain for years and saw many doctors without relief. I was then referred to Dr. Teichman who recommended shockwave therapy to alleviate my heel pain. I was very skeptical but it is now 3 months later and I am walking pain free and have resumed an active lifestyle. This is the first time in years I can walk without pain. It’s great to walk again.
I would like to thank Dr, Teichman and his staff for their help and would recommend them highly."
"Today, I left Dr. Teichman's office skipping out the door. No more heel pain!! For the past couple of years, I have been unable to wear a sneaker. I own a child care center in New Jersey and it has been very difficult for me to run and play with the children. Two months ago I was tired of this constant pain in my heel, so I found your very encouraging ad in the yellow pages. I called your office and was greeted by a warm and caring voice. She took my name and gave me an appointment to see you. When I entered your office I felt a nice and calm atmosphere. Your receptionist welcomed me and said the doctor will see you shortly. This was important to me because this was my first visit and I was a little nervous. She made me feel very comfortable. I will always remember the facial expression on Dr. Teichman's face when he entered the room. WOW What a genuine smile. I thought to myself this guy must love what he is doing. You'd have to love your job to be looking at all those crazy, wacky feet and toes all day.
Dr. Teichman you are the best. You took the pain away. You are a true professional. I would highly recommend your office in Easton, PA to anyone with a foot problem. In closing, I want to personally thank you and your staff for being so kind and caring about your patients. I truly appreciate your expertise in fixing my ailing foot. I admire your dedication to your profession. It was a pleasure going to your office and I can't wait to see you again in 6 months."
Your thankful patient LC
