Great experience. Dr. Silvester always provided me straight forward options to address my issues-never pushed a product or surgery. I had surgery on big toe to shave bone and cut and reposition bone. Done under local since I could not get cardiology release required by medical director of surgery center. No issues at all during surgery. I am now 0% pain free! My wife also had seen Dr. Silvester about a year prior. We both noticed an improvement in the front desk customer service. Someone always answered our calls and returned calls when necessary. Front desk was always professional and kind. I highly recommend Dr. Silvester and the staff of Next Step Foot and Ankle!

Lawrence S.

Dr. Silvester and the Next Step Foot and Ankle Clinic is a wonderful discovery. He, his associate doctors, and entire staff are accommodating, attentive, responsive, and caring. Their services and treatments are provided with professionalism, experience, and innovation as he constantly seeks new and improved methods and treatments for his patients. His clinic offers a full range of podiatry services and treatments. In addition, it offers other unique services and treatments not found in most other podiatry settings, such as: Electric Cell Signaling Therapy (EST), Shockwave Therapy (EPAT), MLS Therapy Laser, and diagnostic ultrasound. Would rate my experiences as a 5 out of 5

I had To have surgery on my right ankle and Dr. Silvester Was amazing. Made me feel very comfortable and my follow up appointments are alway a pleasure to go to .. I will definitely recommend him.

Sherrill C.

Michael G.

Had to have surgery on my nerve in my right heal. Doctor Bills was extremely helpful and the surgery was a success.

Jeff F.

Before I saw Dr. Sylvester I’d accepted that I would have pain for the rest of my life, as no other doctor had been able to do much. He did not accept this and worked with me. I’ve been to several podiatrists over the years and Dr. Sylvester by far has been the best experience. He quickly identified the issues that I was experiencing and worked to find a resolution and “get me back on my feet” without pain. I had an appointment with him around the holidays and the clinic was practically empty, at the end of my appointment he made a point to take his staff into one of the patient rooms and conduct training with them. You could tell that Dr. Sylvester really does care.

Roberto O G.

SusanD H.

It was my first visit. Had to wait a long time for them to input my history. 4 people got to go a head of me. I am still new to this sort of medical stuff. I am not sure I understand much. I was a tad confused with what is the plan. I got a shot and told see ya in 2 weeks. So hoping for more understanding next time. I believe my background has thrown ya all off guard as it does everyone I see at first. Then they learn about me and see that I am a true fighter and not looking for drugs or and easy fix. But I have been hurting for many years with my feet issues. Just never was able to go see anyone about it. I hoped it was just going to get to a place I could deal with it and stop. But nope it’s not. Hope your at least able to advise me what to do if you can’t help. Thanks for letting me give you me input. Hope you don’t take it wrong. It is all good with me.

Concepcion M.

Office staff and doctor were pleasant and professional and informative.

Tony G.

Waynette N.

I’ve had surgery on both of my heels. Dr Bills did my 2nd one and the difference between the two have been like night and day. He takes his time, explains everything, and does excellent work. I could not be happier… I have referred 2 of my friends, one of my friends’ dad, and 2 coworkers…. I think that says it all. / recommend


Dr Silvester was very thorough. He listened to my daughter, and asked questions about her to distract her during her procedure. She is healing well, and we will be using him again if we have any additional foot problems

Dorothy L.

I’m so glad to have found Dr. Bills and his office staff. Everyone was friendly and helpful.

Dr Silvester was amazing I went in for bilateral bunion pain the right being the most painful he explained my condition by showing me the X-ray results and talked to me in detail about treatment options. Gave me steroid injections to help get me out of pain he didn’t just say ok nothing we can do today .. explained if injections didn’t help then we could go forward with surgery which he explained that process as well. Very knowledgeable And had a sense of humor can’t find a Dr like that anymore most Doctors are in and out with in 5 minutes. I would recommend Dr. Silvester fir your foot and ankle problems.

Gary R.

I had been suffering for months and months from a non-healing foot wound and multiple specialists could not successfully bring it to a healed state.

Jerre C.

Dr. Silvester is one of the best and most wonderful doctors I have had.

Rose S.

Recently saw Dr. Slyvester to ask about my numbness and burning on my left foot. He examined the foot completely and suggested several solutions. I am in the process of trying to decide how I should approach, it’s not the worst ailment one can have and yet since a complete elimination of the problem is in sight I am torn between living with it or taking action. I do appreciate Doctor’s recommendations and his diagnosis, very pleased to be able to see him and will always be a patient if he’ll have me. Thanks Doctor, I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity and will be in touch. Rose Speaks

I have been seeing Dr. Bills for many months now. I saw him recently to have two ingrown toenails removed. He has also been helping me to get rid of the fungus in my nails. He has a wonderful personality and is so easy to talk to and joke around with. My fungus is going away and my ingrown toenails do well as long as I follow all his instructions on how to care for them. I highly recommend him if you need a podiatrist.

Jose M.

Excellent care!! Doctor Silvester explained in clear detail the origin of my foot problem and treated the pain. I left his office a very happy man.

I went because of a toe fungus. when Dr. Hoenig saw the sores on my legs, he was the only doctor out of 5 that ordered labs on my infected sores. He called me to update me. He ordered 2 antibiotics because of the 2 different bacteria infecting me. Great doctor, great person.

Beatrice P.

Dr Hoenig was attentive to my pain and explored all possibilities for the cause. He showed concern for my comfort and did his best to solve my problem.

Idalia B.

Maria M.

Was very satisfied with the care and suggestions by Dr. Sylvester

Gary M.

I thought Dr. Bills was a really personable Dr. w/super chair side manner. Went in for treatment of Achilles tendonitis and also he was willing to discuss my arthritic feet. He recommended a therapy known as “shock Wave”. Unfortunately, the first two(of 3) treatments seemed to have an adverse affect on my right foot arthritis and I had to cancel the third. Effectiveness was unknown. However, the second treatment was to use Nitro patches to stimulate the blood flow at the Achilles. This gave me definite relief. Unfortunately, I ran out and the pain(minor) returned. Called in for refill on Friday. Haven’t heard back yet. Would definitely use Dr. Bills in future.

Ernest M.

I met with Dr.Hoeing and he was first rate. I was was able to meet with the Dr within about mins of my arrival. The staff was friendly and professional. A positive experience.

Charles B.

less pain and difficulties that I anticipated. Good results. well satisfied with the professionalism

Gilberto R.

Had 2 good visits with Dr Bills, however, treatment was incomplete. I still have issues with my heels and foot in general. He told me that they would reach out to the VA to approve more visits, then, his office would contact me. I haven’t heard from them. I still need more treatment.

Zeke G.

Very friendly ans knowledgeable experience

Julia J.
