I had the great fortune of being treated by Chandani Gopal who was an absolute professional. My visit was relaxed, informative and between the conversation and treatment, I left there extremely pleased with the wonderful service I received and even more so with the condition of my feet. Thank you Chandani. Your kindness and professionalism is appreciated.
