  • I have been suffering with planter fasciitis for over a year. It had just gotten to the point were I was wiped out by the end of the day.

    I have been suffering with planter fasciitis for over a year. It had just gotten to the point were I was wiped out by the end of the day. My ankles knees and hips were hurting too. All because of my feet I was over compensating how I walked. So I finally decided to try a specialist and I'm feeling an improvement already. Its only been 2 weeks so I'm very hopeful I may beat this thing. My experience at solfoot was the best starting from the front desk to the doctor. She really took time and explained what was going on with my feet. She told me will start simple changes stretches and taping my feet. I go back this week to check my progress.

  • Dr. Shirai exceeded my expectations in terms of being so caring and attentive. She helped to diagnose my problems and agree upon a treatment plan after taking x-rays of one foot. Luckily my broken toe was properly healed.

    I visited Dr. Shirai for beginning stages of ingrown toenail and metatarsal pain. This developed after suffering from a broken toe about 10 months ago. Dr. Shirai exceeded my expectations in terms of being so caring and attentive. She helped to diagnose my problems and agree upon a treatment plan after taking x-rays of one foot. Luckily my broken toe was properly healed. The adjacent shoe shop had a good selection of sandals with metatarsal support and I ended up buying a couple pairs that will be super comfortable for my vacation. My experience was great and I would definitely recommend Dr. Shirai. All the staff there were pleasant and caring. Facilities are clean, but parking can be challenging.

  • 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.

    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!

  • All of the staff were amazing, kind and helpful.

    5 Stars! My left foot has become progressively worse over the past few years with widespread pain on the top of my foot radiating up the ankle/leg. Dr Shirai has me on track with medication and physical therapy. All of the staff were amazing, kind and helpful.
