This doctor is the best in his field. Our whole family has been taken care of him and we are incredibly lucky he practices in OC. I went to him many years ago as my second opinion because of chronic foot pain because this other doctor said my foot had a hairline fracture! Dr K took an xray and one look at my foot and said it wasn’t broken and that I needed better supporting shoes. He was right and I’ve never had this problem again. Recently my hubby had an achilles tendon issue that was not resolving and causing him to limp in pain. Dr K performed a surgical procedure and my hubby is perfect again. Thank you Dr K and staff for the great care!

Here are the short and sweet positive on Dr. Gennady Kolodenker: A nice doctor with good bedside manner and he take his time to discuss his finding with patient. I appreciate his through examination on my son foot-Dr. Gennady really cares.

Such a nice Dr. With a fantastic bedside manor. My wife had broken her toe and was told by the radiologist she would need surgery and pins to correct the issue. After talking with my wife about her pain level and studying her x- rays he determined it would heal naturally with no problems and she just needed buddy tape. What a relief!! This doctor was knowledgeable, friendly, and made sure we knew all the options available to us. Will definitely go back to him and refer him to anyone with podiatric needs.

I do not live in the area where Dr. K is but I called to get some information regarding my condition to see if he can help me before coming up to see him. His receptionist was awesome and he himself called me back to see if he can help me before making an appt. His bed side manners A+++. We need more Doctors like him. I look forward to meeting with him in person. Thank you.

Dr. Kolodenker is hands down THE. BEST. I tend to be a person who questions doctors relentlessly because at the end of the day, who’s going to care about my body more than me? Dr. Kolodenker is a doctor that I absolutely trust with everything he says. If he could be my doctor for everything, that would be amazing. I met Dr. Kolodenker a little over a year ago after breaking my ankle in a razor scooter incident (seriously, don’t buy one of these..it’s an accident waiting to happen). I had to have a plate and six screws placed to repair my dislocation as well as the shattered fibula. I called on a Sunday. Within a couple hours of me leaving a message, he reviewed my xrays and gave me a rundown of what I needed. (What doctors do that nowadays?!) Before and after the surgery he listened to all of my questions, answered them thoroughly, and during my recovery took all of my worries seriously and never once made me feel like I was overreacting.

In addition to the great bedside manner (super calm and puts you at ease), he highly recommends physical therapy which is HUGE. Many doctors don’t push their patients to understand how important it is in your recovery. On top of that, I actually got compliments from the physical therapists office on how great the incisions were and the lack of scar tissue from the surgery. I was also never casted. Casts seem to be kind of an old school method that has since been shown not to be as effective in some cases. In others, you have no choice. But it’s good to have a doctor that stays on top of what’s best in the field and is able to judge the situations that it should be applied. He also urged me and directed me how to start moving my ankle as soon as he determined it was ok..I was so nervous..it hurt..but I trusted him and it has absolutely paid off.

Overall, he has been understanding of my lifestyle and needs. I like to workout, mainly lifting weights, and I am also not good at not being able to get around or being limited physically. He let me work at my own pace in recovering as much as the healing process would allow. I don't think I would've recovered as well mentally or physically during the process if it wasn't for having such a great doctor and surgeon for my injury.

If you're undecided on someone to use..use him!! Seriously, I've seen other ortho specialists for other things, you won't find any better, by far. All of his staff are great, always smiling (you can tell they enjoy working for him, which says a lot), never had issues with billing, appointments, or wait times. This review is long already..I literally can't say enough good things about Dr. Kolodenker.

Thanks Dr. K, I hope this doesn't make it awkward when I'm back in for check-ups :)

I was concerned about pain in my ankle that was preventing me from running and exercising as usual. Dr. Kolodenker immediately identified the tendon that was causing me pain, recommended exercises I could do at home to strengthen it, and even recommended specific arch supports I could try. He also gave me an X-Ray to make sure that everything was normal.

Even though my issue was small, Dr. Kolodenker was very attentive and took my concerns seriously. I appreciate that he didn't jump to extreme diagnoses or suggest surgery. Thanks to his insight, I now feel much better about my situation and understand how to proceed.

Another note: the office is very nice! It's located in the Hoag building, where plenty of parking is available. The waiting room is very modern and open-concept, making for a luxurious and pleasant experience for anyone who has to wait. The front desk staff was also very accommodating, even when I was running late for my appointment. Would definitely recommend!

I had some plantar warts on the bottom of my feet that I’ve had for a looooong time. I just wanted to be rid of them. Dr. K. gave me a number of options and I ended up choosing the one that was the best option for me. It worked! I just wanted to dance out of the office when he said they were gone! I should have done this a long time ago!

I also like the fact he is honest and upfront about what it will take to correct anything on your feet. He gives you all the information you need to make an informed decision and he doesn't push you into surgery that you may not need.

His front office staff is super friendly and efficient. I have never had any problems with billing or my appointments. They are all a definite plus to the practice.

Dr. Kolodenker is the best podiatrist in Orange County! He listens, he’s caring and he’s well trained.

My daughter played water polo in high school and was diagnosed with an Achilles tendon injury by an HMO. She suffered for 18 months of not being able to play water polo, walk or drive without wearing a boot. After one appointment with Dr. Kolodenker he was able to diagnose her medical issue (which was NOT an Achilles' tendon problem) and perform outpatient surgery to fix the problem.

Dr. Kolodenker changed her life!! She was walking the same day after surgery and able to play water polo within 1 month. Our family highly recommends Dr. Kolodenker to anyone suffering with foot and ankle problems.

I am so glad I found Dr. Kolodenker! He genuinely listened to my concerns and took the time to make sure that I understood my diagnosis, treatment plan, etc. I went in for toe numbness after wearing the wrong shoes for my feet shape, and not only did he provide me with prevention/treatment advice for that, but also took note of my low back pain (that I charted as one of my chronic side symptoms) and gave me possible solutions for this as well! He goes above and beyond! His staff are nice and welcoming too. Thank you Doctor! Definitely recommend.

My wife had some issues with her toe nails due to her recent pregnancy so she was in need of a podiatrist to get it fixed. We found Dr. Kolodenker on Yelp and I’m glad we did. Dr. Kolodenker was professional and friendly, and got her nails fixed in a short 15 minutes procedure. We had some hiccups and misunderstanding when it came to billing, but I’m glad the office finally resolved it with minimal hassle. I would recommend this doctors to others.

C S

I originally found Dr. Kolodenker from Yelp and I’m really happy I did. I was originally seeing a different podiatrist before I came across Dr. K but I wasn’t happy with my prior doctor. At my first appointment with Dr. K I knew he was the doctor to perform surgery on my foot. He’s seriously awesome! He removed a decent size ganglion cyst and months later it looks and feels great! I highly recommend him and his staff.

i first visited dr kolodenker 2 years ago for an ingrown toenail and left with a fixed nail plus the tools and knowledge necessary to take better care of my toes. fast forward and i went in for another ingrown toenail issue that led to an infection. again, the doc fixes me up and also gives me some good stretch recommendations for the plantar fasciitis i’m dealing with. the next morning he personally calls me to follow up and see how i’m doing. how amazing is that? i give the doc full marks and highly recommend him! great personality and office staff are pleasant and on their game as well. thank you!

Dr. Coyer is the best foot and ankle doctor I've seen in all of Orange County. He is personable and friendly with great bedside manner. I injured my ankle literally two days before a month-long trip to Asia. He immediately summed up the situation (ankle instability, and obviously a sprained ankle) and gave me a much better brace than I got from Urgent Care and gave me some good tips for surviving my vacation. When I returned, he sent me to physical therapy and I am now completely healed. His office staff is also very good about checking insurance coverage and getting co-pays and coverage information right on the first try, which I appreciate. I highly recommend him to anyone.

S W

Ten stars for Dr Coyer. Such a personable guy and integrity plus. I highly recommend him. His office is new and beautiful too.

I was able to get in to see Dr Coyer only 1 day after calling. The office staff was professional, efficient, and friendly. As an RN who works in surgery and speaks with his patients both pre and post surgeries, I can verify that Dr. Coyer is an excellent surgeon, very knowledgeable and personable. Not to mention extremely handsome.

He deserves more than 5 stars!! I was terrified of surgery but Dr. Coyer explains everything with honesty. I had a bunion and tailors bunion that caused me excruciating pain. And I couldn't be happier with my results!!

I took my son to see Dr. Coyer about his ankles. This is a top Dr and top man. Top bedside manner, highly personable, highly knowledgeable and has the utmost integrity. The only mistake you can make is by going elsewhere. This is most definitely your Podiatrist.

Excellent bedside manner and excellent with providing patient education. Inspires trust and confidence. 5/5 would see again.

My consult with Dr. Coyer for nagging ankle ligament pain went well. Dr. Coyer recommended some terrific therapies like orthotics, targeted stretching, and heat and ice treatment -- all of which combined have helped immensely. Dr. Coyer is an affable, empathic, and thoughtful podiatrist whose respect for patients is obvious. The spacious and immaculate Irvine office is comfortable and soothing. Office staff is attentive and a joy to work with.

I had Great experience at Orange County Podiatry. Dr Michael Coyer is Amazing and he cares about his patient. I am very happy with my Surgery results. I am glad to have him do my surgery. The anesthesiologist was very nice and both Dr Coyer and the anesthesiologists were very helpful to keep patient calm before surgery. The staff were very nice and professional in getting all appointments done. Michelle is excellent worker and great at communicating with patient and make them feel welcome. I would definitely recommend Dr Michael Coyer and Orange County Podiatry for a good surgery results and over all experience!

Amazing doctor he is so nice. Answer all of your questions and if your nervous he will talk to you and help you relax. When I came to the office was so scared of the procedure I was getting done (ingrown toenail). He helped me to keep cool and relax. I will refer him to anyone I know.

Where should I start? A fantastic doctor. Dr. Coyer takes the time to evaluate the concern and listens attentively while providing a full spectrum of treatment options and advice. As a first timer to the foot problem arena, Dr. Coyer explained the condition that he found me to have, plantar fasciitis, and explained the needed therapy and insole/shoe recommendations available. I thank Dr. Coyer for his great personality, professionalism and expertise and have faith that his treatment recommendations will have positive results. The entire office staff have great attitudes with a very positive and helpful flavor. I highly recommend Dr. Coyer and his staff if you have any podiatry needs. A plus office! Thanks!

After a very poor experience last week with a podiatrist who wanted to perform an immediate surgery, I was less than sold and sought a 2nd opinion. As a personal trainer I'm on my feet all day so needless to say I was worried. I gave Dr Coyer a call and his office were able to get me in immediately. Dr Coyer is an outstanding podiatrist. He's friendly, funny and most importantly knows WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT. Not only did reassure me that surgery for my minor foot structure issue would be serious overkill he provided me alternative solutions to remedy and I am Feeling great! I HIGHLY recommend Dr Coyer for all your podiatry related issues.

K R

Dr. Coyer is a great doctor! I have seen him for issues that were getting worse and he knew immediately what to do to help my symptoms. He goes above and beyond with making sure his patients are listened to, understand and will give out referrals if needed.

I've never been to a foot doctor before and was probably a little embarrassed to go because I think feet are not the most pleasant things. Dr. Coyer was very kind and informative. He explained everything twice and let me ask questions which was helpful. Staff was very friendly and I was seen right away after I signed in. Overall, it was a great experience!

Timely; knowledgeable; down to earth; and easy on the eyes :) In Hoag network and in connection with GP providers to coordinate care.

S C

Dr. Coyer is super chill and makes you feel comfortable - there's definitely no white coat syndrome with him. He doesn't push you into any treatment that you're unsure of. The treatment plan is completely up to you and on your timeframe. When I'm ready, I will return for surgery.

I met with Dr. Coyer last Monday for what he didn't know was a second opinion. First doctor had told me I needed surgery on a tailor's bunion. I asked Dr. Coyer if my foot looked funky and he said if it wasn't hurting don't let anyone touch it with a 10-ft. pole. I wanted to hug him and appreciated his reasoning and some other info he gave me. He shaved down 3 little callused areas that were causing me pain off and on that were on the bottom of my feet and basically, I was pain free! Yeah!!! I would HIGHLY recommend him to all of my friends and family in a heartbeat! Plus, he was so easy to talk to and loved his upbeat attitude! His staff was great too!

P C

Great experience! Dr. Coyer spent the time I needed to assess my problem and answer all my questions. I never felt rushed.

I was able to get an appointment the same week I called in and when I arrived, I was seen right on time and the staff was friendly and courteous. Dr. Coyer didn't rush my appointment. He explained everything thoroughly and answered all my questions. He was knowledgeable and I left with a satisfying follow-up plan. I would highly recommend Dr. Coyer and his staff.

Dr. Coyer and staff were amazing! I had a serious ankle sprain playing basketball and needed to see someone asap. I called the office and they had an appointment for me within 15 min. Meeting Dr. Coyer I instantly knew I was in good hands. He is knowledgeable about his craft and genuinely cares about the patient. Highly recommend this office and doctor.

Dr. Coyer is the best doctor I have ever had! He is very patient and friendly. Dr. Coyer takes the time to answer the patient's questions, and explains things more in great detail. Dr. Coyer' staff is also friendly and patient. The staff will do whatever it takes to make you feel comfortable. I love the office's environment because it's very calming and welcoming.

As the owner of In Motion O.C. (physical therapy), we work closely with a lot of doctors. I can tell you that Dr. Kolodenker, Dr. Coyer, Dr. Vincent and the rest of the team at Orange County Podiatry are outstanding foot doctors. I personally went to Dr. Kolodenker for my own foot health needs and had a fantastic experience. I highly recommend them!

J K

From reception to departure, it was a smooth experience. First, the setting in a Hoag facility (near the Spectrum) is clean, bright and modern. There was plenty of parking. Check in was quick and waiting time was minimal. Second, Dr. Ebonie Vincent was reassuring, skilled and effective in treating my infected toe. She not only managed to remove most of my toenail without pain, but clearly explained next steps to me. I will definitely return to Dr. Vincent for any future podiatric issues.

Today was my first visit with Dr. Andrew Yang. I feel lucky because I found Orange County Podiatry online using Google. This session was very informative. I feel fortunate to be educated with his expertise and experience. I look forward to watching the results of the his recommendations for my foot.

My daughter hurt her toe on a Friday night. I thought she might have broken or fractured it since it was badly bruised and she was in pain! I hesitated taking her in to urgent care since we would risk being exposed to covid. Our pediatrician office was closed on Saturday and luckily enough I was able to contact OC Podiatry. They were able to see her that morning and Dr. Tien provided such great care. We were very happy with the service from the staff and Dr. Tien's knowledge, care and friendliness. Thank you so much for giving us the peace of mind and accommodating seeing us in such a short notice.
