What Our Happy Clients Say About Us

I highly recommend Advantage Foot and Ankle specialists for all of your podiatry needs. Dr. Gibson recently did an in office procedure on two of my hammertoes. I have followed her to three offices since there is no one else I would want to operate on my feet. She was thorough, professional and kind during the procedure and follow up. Her colleague Dr. Gillespie is just as fabulous!

I initially saw Dr. Gibson for a diabetic foot infection. She performed surgery to quickly resolve the problem. I continue to see her for my foot care needs especially with being a diabetic. Dr. Gibson always explains everything in a way I can understand.
