Dr Ratcliff is the best! He works on my toes with precision. He has useful suggestions about shoes and socks. He even had a handout about diet changes that might help me. He is unlike other podiatrists I’ve had. I’m so glad that I found him 9 years ago.

Dr Ratcliff treated me for a couple plantar warts that had been around for 15-20years. He “zapped” them with a Swift machine that currently only available thru him and maybe one other in the Bay Area. After 5 treatments, looks like one is gone and the other is improving. I had gone thru 8 “acid” type treatments with no improvement but acute persistent pain for the 24-48hrs each time, after the treatment. I had also try internet treatment, Wartabater, and was useless. On the contrary, Swift was just a couple seconds of burning sensations during treatment. Much much much better, and most importantly it works. Hopefully, my second wart will be gone as well. Kudos to Dr Ratcliff for having the initiative to be a provider of Swift treatment that many other medical groups refused to provide, for the reason of not wanting to deal with insurance. Without him, the treatment will not have been available in the Bay Area.

Thanks for the help and all the very important information that you provided me I am going to recommend to the acupuncturists clinic and they will refer you as a podiatrist for them

I’m a new patient of Dr Ratcliff’s. He answered all my questions. My appointment was for 15 minutes, but I felt unhurried. He provided observations and suggestions for pain relief as we await X-rays to determine next steps. His checkin paperwork is simple, and I find this refreshing. I’m feeling “medical checkin fatigue” as most medical professionals require that you set up an app, set up login and password, enter every scrap of information, and then at checkin at the Doctors office, ask for some of this information again in paper form, duping your efforts. I think you will like Dr Ratcliff. That impersonal distance one feels with most doctors isn’t in his office. Instead, it’s more of a feeling that he is on your healthcare team. I like that.

Dr Ratcliff focuses on fixing the injury/symptom through disciplined manageable therapy, he doesn't promote surgery unless it's really necessary. I love this. He's professional and pleasant.
