I was amazed at how knowledgeable, kind, and quickly he solved my problem of having a callus on the bottom of my foot - I had seen a couple of other podiatrists - one being at UCSF - and neither of them seemed to know what to do to stop the pain.  My son had used Dr. Elmi and highly recommended him and being very tired of limping around in pain all the time, and without much hope, decided to at least try one more doctor.  As I said at the beginning of this review, I could hardly believe how quickly and easily he not only got rid of the pain but showed me exactly what was causing it and exactly what insert to get and where to get it (REI).  I've been just fine every since and we're so lucky to have Dr. Elmi right here in Strawberry/Mill Valley - he's the best!

I went and saw Dr. Elmi for my heel pain, and am VERY happy with the care I received. I had seen 2 other docs in the area, and they never even took the time to explain what was going on, Plantar Fasciitis. Dr. Elmi explained in detail why I was in so much pain, and showed pictures of the anatomy and everything made perfect sense. I happy to say that after initiating his course of care, I was back to running within 2 weeks, and felt like I got my life back. I found out later from my primary care that he is actually the Chief of Foot & Ankle Surgery at Marin General Hospital, makes sense..he's a great doc, highly recommend him!

I am very happy with my care from Dr. Elmi, I had seen three other doctors in the area who couldn't figure out what was going on with my ankle pain, and Dr. Elmi identified the cause and provided the solution in a matter of minutes, I was astonished and am so thankful, I am finally back to running and living my life without pain, highly recommend him.

I had just one appointment for a ligament problem, but I was very satifsfied with Dr. Elmi's professionalism, care, and expert yet straightforward advice. My husband saw Dr. Elmi a few times as he was heeling from foot injuries and was very satisfied as well.
