    Dr Justin Pointer is beyond wonderful. The entire staff is kind and professional. This is a smoothly run practice. I have two issues and Dr Pointer has completely addressed and corrected both. Please visit him for your foot and ankle relief, you will be abundantly pleased. Thank you Dr Pointer and staff.

    I fell in the back yard while planting flowers. I went to Patient First in Waldorf and they saw nothing and sent me home. All that night my ankle and eventually my leg felt as if they were on fire so I knew that something was terribly wrong. The following morning I called and they took me in right away. What came up on the x-ray? A nasty fracture. Dr. Pointer took care of it right away and put me in a boot. Several colleagues also go to these guys and are pleased with them as well.

    I called this office yesterday for a broken toe (with possible foot damage) and they were able to squeeze me in the Clinton location this morning. The office was very clean and the entire office staff was extremely friendly. I was very impressed from the start! The wait time was maybe 2 minutes. Once I got back to a room, it was only another minute or so before Dr. Pointer came in. He was very pleasant, caring and knowledgeable. He was very patient and answered all my questions. I will see him again in two weeks for a follow-up visit in Waldorf. I do believe this was the quickest office visit I have ever had. I highly recommend them!!!
