At Carolina Foot & Ankle Specialists we are proud of our personalized care and attentive customer service. We simply love our patients, and we love what we do! Our doctors and staff have known each other for a long time, and we enjoy including our patients in that naturally friendly, family atmosphere. Our podiatrists, Dr. Saffer and Dr. Brown are childhood friends and excellent podiatrists that work together to find the answers that bring their patients relief. As athletes themselves, they specialize in sports medicine and have decades of experience in heel pain, bunion correction, ingrown toenails, pediatric podiatry, and more. They marry the best of old school customer care with state-of-the-art technology and techniques that get their patients results-such as digital X-rays, ultrasound, Lapiplasty® 3D Bunion Surgery, and non-invasive EPAT therapy for chronic heel pain. We also work with a high-tech Forward Motion™ lab to create custom orthotics.

Carolina Foot & Ankle Specialists is always improving and evolving. We are excited to offer expanded services to the community by welcoming Vishal Desai, DPM to our team in August. Dr. Desai is an exceptionally trained foot and ankle surgeon specializing in tackling more complicated issues like complete surgical revisions and reconstructive foot and ankle surgery.

“I was fortunate to get a same-day appointment (due to a cancellation) with Dr. Brown last week when I had a serious toe joint worry. Dr. Brown was thorough, but conservative in the recommendation and I went home without extra expense. His course of treatment resulted in perfect healing.”

“Dr. Brown provided me with excellent care on this visit. He listened to my health concern and gave me several options for treatment. He spent much time with me and did not rush through my treatment options. His nurse is very friendly also.”

“I have been a patient of Dr. Saffer for a couple of years. He and his staff are always pleasant and very patient in explaining the issues. And I like his “wait and see” approach rather than immediately suggesting a more invasive procedure when pain is not an issue. Always a good experience. Highly recommend.”

“Dr. Andrew Saffer and his wonderful staff are a gift to anyone with aching feet. My entire family and I have been going to Dr. Safer for one ailment or another for 15 years. He is nothing short of a miracle worker. My husband and I have both walked in with painful “things” on the bottom of our feet, and walked out pain-free and with a plan to ensure future happy feet. His entire staff reflects his caring, positive spirit. If you are looking for the best podiatrist and staff in the universe, they can be found in the office of Dr. Andrew Saffer in Mt. Pleasant.”

“My bunions are genetic, and I was very hesitant to look for podiatrists in Mount Pleasant because I am a student, and I have heard that bunion correction/removal can be painful and leave a person worse off. I took a leap of faith with Carolina Foot and Ankle Specialist in Mount Pleasant, and I could not be happier with my choice to go with Dr. Saffer and Dr. Desai for my bunion consultation and correction.
From the second I walked in, the staff was extremely welcoming and kind. Dr. Saffer and Dr. Desai both took the time to explain everything about what my options were and their recommendations. Dr. Desai performed my surgery, and I cannot stop raving about how my care has been nothing but excellent from pre- to post-op care. During my recovery, my mom brought up concerns about me going back to class; Dr. Desai took the time to personally address her concerns and was very flexible with my post-op care.
I also had an extremely pleasant experience at East Copper Hospital where the surgery was performed. I was very nervous, but Dr. Desai and the hospital staff made me feel very comfortable and made sure I knew everything before the procedure. If anyone is ever considering a podiatrist, I can’t explain enough how excellent my care has been, and how choosing Carolina Foot and Ankle Specialist in Mount Pleasant exceeded my every expectation!”
