Hi my name is Monica Veldez, I came here I would say about six months ago … maybe 5, with excruciating pain on my foot. I had developed a bunion and then maybe a callus type under my toes and I was in excruciating pain when I came here. Dr. Silvester suggested some cortisone shots which that helped for a few months, but then it kept gradually coming back – the pain. So then he suggested the surgery where I got a metal plate, a couple of screws and I feel great! The foot does not hurt. I have very little to no pain. Um, he did an awesome job! Although I have some scars, but it’s nothing that can’t go away, and I recommend Dr. Silvester to anybody that has pain like I did, because he did a tremendous and awesome job.
