I was visiting my son and family in Long Beach and I was in pain with my left foot and ankle so I looked up the closest foot doctor to my son’s place, and luckily for me, that was Dr. Mie Shirai.
Dr. Shirai was so sweet, pleasant, knowledgeable, a breath of fresh air compared to my previous podiatrist experiences. Her staff also echoes her wonderful demeanor.
I’d been suffering from foot pain for almost a year!
I’d been suffering from foot pain for almost a year and the first doctor in my town said to me; “Well, what do you expect you have flat feet!”
The 2nd podiatrist said and did everything politely but was gruff and grumpy so I never returned to either of them.
It turned out that I had a small inner tear in a tendon in my left foot.
It turned out that I had a small inner tear in a tendon in my left foot. It hurt everyday and into the night where the pain woke me up several times a night. This left me exhausted and grumpy.
Dr. Shirai asked me many questions about my foot pain. She told me what could be a course of care depending on what they would discover about my injury. They x-rayed my foot and taped it. Then later I went for an MRI and they gave me a boot to wear for 6 weeks. I finally was on the road to recovery!
I would most happily recommend Dr. Shirai of Sol Foot & Ankle Centers to anyone who needs a podiatrist and or is suffering from foot and/or ankle pain. Dr. Shirai and her staff are a breath of fresh air!
