Thank you for taking such amazing care of me. We had several zoom calls together before and after my trip, and when the day came for me to travel to Boulder, you made arrangements for a driver to pick us up at the airport, and you had a driver take us back to the airport a few days later! The location of the hotel directly across from the surgery center meant that I could walk to the surgery, and afterwards, I was able to easily get back to our room for recovery. Leading up to the surgery, I was very nervous. Knowing that I was about to have a "osteotomy of the second metatarsal" on both feet, I was sure that I would have to spend several months in a wheelchair. I could not believe it when I was able to WALK out of surgery under my own power! You are truly a very skilled master at what you do, and I am SO lucky to have had you as my surgeon. I'm still amazed at how fast the recovery was. 6 weeks after surgery I was out hiking for the first time in YEARS!!

Thank you both so much for all that you do. I imagine that there are times when you go to work and, because for you it's "just another day", you might occasionally lose sight of the impact that you have on your patient's lives.

So I want you to know that the impact you've had on THIS life is completely transformational. For the first time in 20+ years I have NO foot pain. I had forgotten what it was like to not have pain. Now I can get back to living, hiking and playing with my grand-daughters.

I had heard of this amazing podiatry office for some time. Wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable staff. Superb diagnostics; heading to surgery there for a serious old problem. I could not be more grateful to have found them!

Nina M 6/2022

I was favorably impressed with my first visit to Foot and Ankle Care. The admission of a new patient was easy due to completing forms at their website. The forms definitely take some time to complete, so highly recommend doing it that way, if possible. Dr. Gradisek was on time and was both a good listener to my explanation of the problem and clear in his assessment and recommendations for remediation. Office staff and assistant were both equally personable and knowledgeable. My experience is what any patient would appreciate.

Sandy G 5/2022

Outstanding medical treatment from sign in to sign out. Couldn't be better.

Don M. 5/2022

Dr. Roth explain and checked my feet and explain the treatment with patience and care. I asked many questions and all were answered. Staff is very professional and nice.

Love this place! I feel I am in good hands.

Yolanda C 5/2022

Both visits with Dr. Gradisek were great. The office is very welcoming and the support staff are very helpful and kind. Dr Gradisek takes the time to explain your condition and works with you for the best options personalizing the next course of action. He is very detailed oriented and doesn’t espouse a “one size fits all” policy to your medical condition. While I have some decisions to make, I am confident this office will direct me to the one that best fits my needs and condition. I am grateful for this type of medical practice, which is a refreshing change from the more “corporate” larger medical practices I have visited previously.

Pamela O 5/2022

I couldn’t be happier with the care I receive from Brian Gradisek at Foot & Ankle Care of Boułder. He made a great pair of Orthodics for me last year, cuts down my callouses and removed my large toe nail painlessly that was compromised from chemo 20 yrs ago from chemo. I highly recommend him!

Carol B 4/2022

After watching my teen suffer through season after season of terrible foot pain during sports, we finally switched from another well established practice to Dr. Roth. So glad we did! In one appointment Dr. Roth put him on an easily accessible treatment plan-- that worked-- quickly! So happy we found her.

Amy C 3/2022

Dr. Gradisek diagnosed &treated my foot problem accurately, quickly, and very professionally. He is a cheerful doctor! His staff is helpful and attentive. My experience was extremely positive. This office gets an A+ in my books.

Barbara S. 2/2022

Such a great team! They're all very professional, sweet and attentive. I felt like I was really heard for the first time, regarding my aches and pains with my feet. They all took such great care of me and really wanted to help me get better. Thank you so much, especially for your kindness. 

Rita R. 1/2022

I had such a positive experience with FACB, Dr. Roth and the entire staff. Personable, caring, friendly, communicative - everything you could want when dealing with an injury, surgery or recovery.

Debbie K. 1/2022

I had Dr Gradisek, and he did a wonderful job removing a problematic artificial joint from my foot and fusing my toe! I got that joint when I think artificial toe joints came on the scene, and Doc said he'd never seen one like it. And he said it was his most difficult surgery he'd ever had. I would never have guessed it because it looked and felt every bit as good as I could have hoped for. He's caring and determined to good work, and a really nice guy. He's awesome, sands so is his staff! The few I know, Gia, Angel and Jennifer are all friendly and kind. I truly believe that I chose the best when I chose Foot and Ankle of Boulder Colorado. Thank you doc, Gia and the rest for making my visits pleasant and enjoyable!

Tony V. 1/2022

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Gradisek, Angel, Gia and the entire team. I had bunion surgery on both feet at the same time. Dr. Gradisek and his team were a reassuring force throughout. The recovery has been actually better and faster than I thought it would be for how intense the procedure was (in my mind - it was just a Monday for Dr G!). If you are having any foot issues, look no further - you can find help here. Also, they are super cool, responsive, warm and caring.

Margaret B. 1/2022

Foot and Ankle Care of Boulder provided me with outstanding customer service and excellent care. Angel and Connie were courteous and thoughtful and Dr. Roth did an wonderful job in explaining and executing the procedure as well as providing at-home care with thoughtful follow up. We appreciated the sports medicine perspective executed by athletes themselves. Five star from start to finish!

William M. 1/2022

Dr. Gradisek is great! He is very knowledgeable, professional, engaging and fun to work with. The staff at FAC are also very good and easy to work with. Highest marks for all.

John W. 12/2021

I have been to Dr. Gradisek for multiple foot issues. They do x-rays right in the office so that when the doctor comes in he already knows what is going on. I have felt very confident with all of his diagnoses and treatment plans. He has also made prescription orthotics for me that make a huge difference for my feet.

Mary Kay W 11/2021

Dr. GRADISEK was so attentive. His approach is to try everything before surgery. I recommend him highly.

Cindy W 11/2021

Professional , friendly , and best of all - recommendations that work !! Dr Gradisek will keep your feet happy and your smile shining ! Thank you

Mary P 11/2021

I am so relieved to have made an appointment with Dr Brian Gradisek. It was my first appointment with Dr G and he was able to put together problems I’m having with my feet with other medical issues I’m dealing with (that he didn’t know about!!!). I now feel that these issues can really be resolved!!!! Amazing!!!!

Pie F 10/2021

Dr. Gradisek and the rest of the staff were excellent. Well organized, efficient, and on time. Dr. Gradisek reviewed X-rays taken in office immediately, discussed possible causes of pain, and provided in office treatment and a clear follow up plan. Would highly recommend this office and Dr. Gradisek for anyone with foot/ankle injuries.

Brian B 10/2021

Dr. Gradisek and Team are awesome! I had to wait a few minutes and was offered a snack and refreshments. Dr. Gradisek is kind, caring, and a great communicator.

Caroline T. 10/2021

Absolutely amazing from being right on time to innovative surgery techniques with less downtime and faster recovery. I came here on the recommendation of a friend who found help at Foot & Ankle Care of Boulder when no other doctor would or could help him.

Ineke M 10/2021

Dr. Nicole Roth was spectacular. She explained everything in a way that was easy for me to understand. She looked at all available options for treatments. The appointment was not extremely long, however I feel the appropriate time was taken to assess my issues. The staff was incredible. Very pleasant. The was no wait time. I was brought back shortly after I arrived. I would definitely recommend this clinic, specifically Dr. Roth to anyone looking for a podiatrist.

Kirsten W 10/2021

Dr. Gradisek is terrific! ! I have had procedures done for ingrown toenails twice and it is painless and he gives good advice about toes not needing this procedure. The team is very friendly and extremely well organized. Appointments are on time and I can’t say enough about the welcoming nature of all.

Evelyn J. 10/2021

Dr. Gradisek always takes such good care of us- no matter what the issue. His ability to assess the situation and recommend treatment allows for great peace of mind in moving forward with a procedure. Our results and outcomes have always been very positive! Additionally, the office and clinical staff are kind and considerate— it’s obvious they are focused on patient care. We always have a great experience from start to finish.

Diane Z. 10/2021

Absolutely adore Dr Gradisek. Great office staff, Angel is the best! I recommend this practice


Jolene B. 9/2021

Great customer service from all staff. Everyone smiles. A smile is worth a thousand words. I would recommend Boulder Foot & Ankle of Boulder County to anyone needing their service. Thanks to everyone for doing an outstanding job . I felt right at home.

Timothy H. 9/2021

Dr. Roth was great; she immediately diagnosed the issue, provided some medication to reduce the inflammation and pain in my foot and has me on the road to recovery after breaking a couple bones in my foot. Didn’t feel rushed, she answered all my questions and I feel very well taken care of. Thanks!

Nick P. 9/2021

Highly recommend this place! Dr Nicole Roth is extremely good at her job and always takes care of me so well! I have had 2 procedures done now with Dr Roth and she is always very efficient and considerate of her client’s time, she gets things done quickly and does an awesome job. Additionally, she is incredibly sweet. Whenever I come in to get something done I am always on the brim of tears because of the discomfort of my foot problem. However, Dr Roth is so kind and always makes my foot issues seem so fixable and knows how to make me feel better instantly. Best foot and ankle doctor in Boulder!

Courtney C 8/2021

Dr. Roth is amazing! She answered all my questions and made sure 3 times that I didn't have any more! On top of my great in-office care, she gave me supplement suggestions to help my bone heal and included nutrition guidelines if I didn't want to load up on supplements!

Daniel D. 8/2021

Excellent care! I was very satisfied! Dr. Was clear and informative. Staff was helpful and friendly. I was extremely pleased with my appointment and glad to drive to Boulder from Denver and receive such great care. I would highly recommend Dr. Gradisek.

Janet S. 7/2021

Dr Nicole Roth and her staff are the archetype for what all health care professionals should strive to be: Highly skilled, pragmatic, friendly, on the minute punctual and most importantly - they embody their oath of doing everything in their power to make their patient better. For whoever might read this review doctor shopping, if you have a problem with your feet, there is no one better than Dr Roth in Boulder County. I could barely walk when I went into see Dr Roth and though I am not skipping down the street, I could if the notion struck me…

J.T H. 7/2021

Dr.G and Dr.Roth are great! Anytime I’ve had to make an appointment the staff is able to get me in ASAP, usually next day too! The office staff has been amazing with communicating with me as well!

Samantha C 6/2021

Thank you Dr G for quickly diagnosing and treating my foot condition. I limped in with foot pain and now I feel 100% again. Heading out for a hike :-) Highly recommended!!

Barry A. 5/2021

I have been a patient for many years with great service and care. Jessica does a flawless job organizing the scheduling and front office functions. Dr. Brian G. Is both super competent and a warm caring practitioner!

Bill T. 4/2021

I was referred to Foot and Ankle Care of Boulder by the Boulder Community Hospital Emergency Room after suffering a foot injury. I recommend Dr Roth and her support practitioners highly. I am grateful for the care I have received and through this process, my injury has healed. Thank you!

Fantastic staff! Excellent care! Highly recommend!!

Randall R 4/2021

I was referred to Foot and Ankle Care of Boulder by the Boulder Community Hospital Emergency Room after suffering a foot injury. I recommend Dr Roth and her support practitioners highly. I am grateful for the care I have received and through this process, my injury has healed. Thank you!

Stephanie M 4/2021

Dr. Gradisek is a great doctor. Very thorough. He takes the time to listen carefully, then explains all aspects and options of each particular case, and answer any questions/ concerns. He performed a rather complex surgery on my left foot/ ankle which took care of several issues in one operation. I recently did a followup for other minor issues and he has been just as thorough and helpful with those as well. Recommended.

Robert D. 4/2021

Dr. Roth listens and takes time to answer questions and explain why she is using a specific treatment to relieve pain. Very non rushed atmosphere.

MaryJane S. 4/2021

Everyone was friendly and helpful! Dr. Gradisek answered all of my questions and took plenty of time to educate me on ways to better care for my gait and shoe choices. Thank you!

Rebecca M. 4/2021

Though recovery took a bit longer than my competitive outlook was prepared for...it has made a world of difference in foot pain I previously had. Bunionette surgery on both feet. First (Soccer) game back was last night felt great. great. No foot pain during or after the game. A bit sore today, but that was expected! All the staff is very friendly and attentive to every need. Dr. Roth is not only great at what she does, she is very personable and has great bedside manner!

T. Dickerson 3/2021

I had a bunion repair performed by Dr. Gradisek about three months ago. All I can say is that he had a lot to live up to because his now retired partner performed my first bunion surgery six years ago and he did a great job. Dr. Gradisek clearly explained why he chose the technique he did. He explained in detail what I could expect with potential problems. He spent time answering my many questions. The office staff has always been attentive and easy to work with, like an old time medical office that you don't see much anymore. I was well prepared for surgery and that whole experience went smoothly even having to deal with COVID. Most importantly, at seven weeks post-op, I was released to return to normal activity and even prior to that I spent only one week in a modified platform shoe followed by six weeks in hiking shoes with slowly increasing walking activity. I could not be more thrilled with my new pain free foot! Thank you!!

Andrea C. 2/2021

I have seen Dr. Gradisek for differing issues and each visit he has shown to be knowledgeable, and affable. He allows time to listen, discus and explain any, and all options. Thorough and caring, he is an excellent DPM and has a great bedside manner. I highly recommend Dr. Gradisek, and have 100% confidence in him. He is truly amazing.

Wallace S. 11/2020

I came to Dr Gradisek for a second opinion, he took the time to review my chart and we made a plan of action. He took time to explain everything and answer all my questions. The staff was simply amazing, we had difficulties with insurance and they made sure it was all set before surgery. I would recommend Dr Gradisek and his staff for any of your foot and ankle care needs.

Jessica B. 11/1/2020

Dr. Brian Gradisek is a phenomenal surgeon and one of the best doctors I have worked with. He is incredibly friendly, funny, and spends a lot of time with his patients. He always made sure all of my questions were answered thoroughly and I never felt rushed (as I have with many previous doctors). He did a great job on my ankle surgery - ligament repairs and arthroscopy - and I am amazed by how quickly I have healed. My ankle is stronger than it was before the surgery and the scars are gone in only 2 months. The office is great to work with, and twice they fit me in for appointments on the same day I called. His nurse, Amy, provides excellent follow-up and answered basic questions over the phone so I didn’t need to come in for little things during recovery. They have an x-ray machine in the office, and it took less than 5 minutes to get pre-op and post-op x-rays, which was awesome. I highly recommend Foot and Ankle Care of Boulder and Dr. Brian Gradisek. I don’t usually write reviews

Anna H. 2/2020

I live an hour away from Boulder in a city with quite a few other foot/ankle doctors, but I called this office because the reviews are so stellar and they were able to see me quickly. Dr. Roth somehow managed to make the experience of getting TWO toenails removed--dare I say--pleasant? If that's not the most glowing testament to her excellent skills as a doctor and her wonderful bedside manner, I don't know what is. She was extremely kind and professional in her approach, which really helped quell my embarrassment over what I was calling "a bouquet of toe issues." (Will I regret putting this online one day?) Not only did she make me feel mentally comfortable, but she also ensured the actual procedure was painless and checked in with me throughout to avoid any discomfort. My toes have been healing nicely, and considering the aftercare instructions on my end were minimal, I fully attribute the results to the quality of Dr. Roth's work. I'm grateful for the exceptional care I received in her hands and highly recommend seeing her for any/all foot stuff.

Cassidy C 12/2019

Dr. Gradisek and his team are fantastic! It’s a smaller clinic so everyone knows your name and treats you well. They are extremely responsive and want to ensure you are taken care of. Dr. Gradisek helped cure me of chronic pain in my feet. From his pre-operative appointments, to surgery and post-surgical care, him and his team were AMAZING. Would recommend him and this practice to anyone!

N Barney 11/2019

Well I'm a fan, no free breakfast bagels, or flax-seed cookies here, but its a genuinely friendly office with a sharp podiatrist Dr. Gradisek. I came in for a possible cast/boot for my Jones Fracture, and doc checked the xrays gave it to me real, in short I was lucky I didn't need surgery. I enjoy my visits here as the ladies on staff are genuine people, have some friendly empathy. It make sense because when speaking with the doc is just a friendly, quick, honest chat among people. He brought up two issues the previous doc at an urgent care seemed to have missed, I have not one fracture but two, and apparently I sprained my ankle in the process. Anyway I trust this man's opinion, I'll be back to share my future adventures with them I'm sure. Thank you folks for running a high quality practice.

Peter P 7/2019

We chose Dr. Gradisek based on high reviews which turned out to be true. He is very professional, did not push surgery at all, but we chose surgery for my college age daughter after given all the options. His guidelines for recovery were right on and she is now released to all activities. The staff is very professional and easy to work with.

Mark W 6/2019

Dr. Gradisek performed lateral ankle stabilization surgery on my sixteen-year-old daughter in May 2018. I don’t think I could be more pleased and satisfied with the level of professional care provided. Dr. Gradisek was exactly what you hope to find in a surgeon – professional, knowledgeable and caring. His staff was very warm and friendly and they were always available to answer questions. Her recovery was fast and she was back to full physical activity within eight weeks. It has been eight months since the surgery and she is back to doing competitive cheerleading with no issues!

Mike H. 1/2019

I was a patient of Dr Roth's in Atlantis, FL and I am so very disappointed that she has relocated her practice to Colorado! I am a 68 year old woman from New York who worked in Midtown Manhattan, traveling from Long Island via the Long Island RailRoad, wore sneakers to work and then 3-4" heels for 8-9 hours on the job, over a period of 25 years. I was a snow skier, tennis player, golfer, water skier, ran a half marathon (once) in 2004 and have had Radio Frequency (RF) for pain in both feet from neuromas, had a bone cut in my second toe when in my 30's for a 'beginning hammer toe'. So I'm familiar with several Podiatrists in the north (all were male) and their services were adequate. However, none of them understood the female foot and shoes like Dr. Roth. I was so excited to have found her at last...a woman, compassionate, grounded, understanding, unwilling to cut or resort to extreme measures before exploring all other options first. She explained every xray, medical option and medical terms in simple and direct language. She was able to relate to my symptoms as some of her own. She prescribed homeopathic compounding preparations, as well as recommended her preference of pharmacies, explaining her reasons. She also gave me the option to get these preps from some chain pharmacies, but advised there were other considerations to take into account when deciding. Dr Roth was always clear in her explanations, course of action and caring, clean and gentle while performing exams, removing calluses, clipping nails, giving shots or any other procedure. She has provided me with literature she researched and printed specifically for me that explained my neuroma in detail. She is, by far, the best one to care for a lady's feet! I cannot say enough about her good qualities; professional yet comfortable to talk with, a down-to-earth attitude and a good listener. AND, something I didn't often see from others, a reference not only to a prior condition, but also to some of the conversations we'd had in the past. She's GREAT! MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT NOW! Dr Roth, I MISS YOU! Best wishes for your continued success in your new home and practice

Marianne M 1/2019

Dr Gradisek performed surgery on both my feet in July 2018 and the results and process were exceptional! The procedure was the same for both feet, “Cartiva” (big toe implants) and was for arthritis. The process was efficient, professional and kind. The results were really good; I was on my feet and fully functional in just a few weeks. The pain was quite manageable, but necessary. Per Dr. Gradisek’s recommendation, it was important to commit fully to physical therapy, which I did. My results were significantly better than similar surgery I had previously with another doctor; my progress at 8 weeks with Dr. Gradisek was actually better than my previous surgery at 6 months. Additionally, it is unlikely that I will require additional surgery like I did before.
Thanks again for getting me back on my feet and pain free!

Dan T. 11/2018

I went to Dr. Gradisek for a bunion problem and ended up going through with surgery. True to his word, I was walking the day of, in shoes a week later and back to full running within 6-7 weeks. My foot looks great now and I'm really happy I went through with the surgery. Dr. Gradisek and his staff were easy to work with and I'd recommend them to anyone with foot issues.

Erin K 7/2018

I found Dr. Gradisek literally on the web, saw him for a consult (after many others) on my foot issues and by the time I left the office I was convinced he was my guy. He listened to my problems ,concerns, had a very open mind to my thoughts, wishes, he gave me several of his thoughts, past experiences and outcomes, so I made the decision to have Dr.Gradisek do my surgery and I couldn't be more pleased, he warned me of the ups and downs and length of rehab, and said if "you do what I ask this will all work" and it has! He is very approachable and a great young physician (the world needs more like him). The nurses and front office are great as well, they are professional yet caring, they get messages to the Dr. quickly and he responds quickly. I highly recommend Dr. Gradisek or Dr. Shonka for any foot and ankle problems you might have.

Scott M 6/2018

I highly recommend Dr. Gradisek and staff at Foot & Ankle Care of Boulder County. after 2 1/2 years of pain and a failed cheilectomy (by others), I went to see Dr. G and felt completely at ease with his diagnoses and bedside manner. He did a big toe joint fusion mid December 2017, and a full list of guidelines to heal properly, (long process) and its now just 4 months later and I feel great, as it is still healing, it is a bit tender, Hiked 2 miles 2 week ago in the foothills and all went well, sore, but nothing like before, I have had to make some footwear changes and still learning to "roll off" the fused toe, but I couldn't be happier. I cannot wait to hit the mountain trails in earnest in a short while. If you have any foot problems call them, Dr. Gradisek and his staff are amazing at getting you back on your ol' tired, sore feet or ankles.

Scott M 4/2018

I injured my foot and happen to read great reviews about Dr G so I called hoping for an immediate appointment. Not only were they able to see me an hour after I called only due to a cancellation, but I didn't even finish my paperwork before they took me in for an x-ray. The staff was so friendly and caring. When I saw Dr G I immediately knew I could trust him. He was professional kind, knowledgeable and diagnosed and treated me within minutes. I also appreciated that he "got" that I live in Boulder and need to get back to my hiking an skiing as soon as possible. I am already feeling better and can't recommend this office enough.

A.S. 2/2018

I am a nurse practitioner and went to Dr. Gradisek for bunion surgery on both feet. The outcome is beyond expectations! He has exceptional bedside manner, explains things clearly, is never hurried, and is just a nice guy. Tammy, his assistant, is so nice and the front office people are helpful and nice as well. Dr. G did surgery at the Boulder Surgery Center, which totally rocks - great staff, super modern and clean. I will always go to Dr. Gradisek!

Deborah 11/2017

I just wanted to say thank you so much in particular to Dr. Gradiseck. I had two ruptured plantar plate tendons that he repaired in February and in May I was able to run Bolder Boulder in a time of 39:36 placing 35th and I'm still running great and most importantly pain free. If it wasn't for him I would have been totally screwed so Thank You!!!!!

Shannon K. 6/2017

After years of sprains and joint pain I had my right ankle reconstructed. Best decision I ever made! Dr. Gradisek was the confident compassionate surgeon I needed. He explained to me my options. He described post surgical expectations and was light hearted, patient and caring to the end. Up and walking in a few weeks. Doing most activities in a few months. Doing ALL activities without any braces and completely pain free in under 9 months. Thank you Dr. Gradisek!!!

Francesca H 2/2017

I have been dealing with a weak ankle and long-term pain from rolling my ankle over 4 years ago. Dr Gradisek recommended I have a minimally invasive surgery called subchondroplasty . This is a newer surgical technique and I also chose to use PRP as part of the surgery. I also had a ligament repair. Dr. G took time to really explain how the procedure could benefit me and its' current use in sports medicine. I had a successful surgery and finally have confidence that I can resume my more active lifestyle without fear of rolling my ankle. I cannot say enough about the expertise and compassion demonstrated by Dr. Gradisek. I would recommend him, without reservation, for anyone wanting thoughtful and "cutting edge" treatment.
