Once again, thank you for the excellent care I received from you and your surgical staff during my recent surgery. Please also thank your office staff for their politeness and care during my numerous office visits. Your skill and bed side manner have always been important to me and I have no qualms in referring your office to any acquaintance.

I am 4 weeks out from surgery on both feet...joint replacements in both big toes and correction of hammertoes in 2nd, 3rd, 4th toes on each foot. Pain was minimal after the 2nd day. I traveled from Lake Havasu City, Az to Henderson, NV to see Dr. Bregman. Well worth the 5 hr roundtrip drive. I have minimal swelling but still cannot get feet into closed shoes. Will be so glad when I can start walking and hiking again. Thank you, Dr. Bregman!
Dr. Bregman and his staff are terrific. I had bilateral bunion/ hammertoe surgery on both feet at the same time 2.5 weeks ago. I have been relatively pain-free and was on my feet the same day with special boots. It has been a very easy and quick recovery so far and Dr. Bregman has been been so accessible and quick to answer any questions. He is very knowledgeable and a great surgeon. I can already see the results and am so happy with them. I definitely highly recommend Dr. Bregman for any orthopedic surgery.
I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Ricciardi and his staff. Everyone was very polite. I was in to see the doctor within 5 minutes. They answered all of my questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend them to all of my friends. I am looking forward to my return visit. They also have Saturday hours so that works out great for those of us who work Mon-Friday. Great doctor!
I was suffering from pain in my flat feet and went to couple Dr's here in the valley. I got word of Dr. Bregman and from the 1st minute I walked into that office to the follow up calls after surgery they have been professional and really really helpful. He diagnosed my issue and took pictures, even videos for my file. He took his time and explained everything front and back. He is not a walk in and walk out Doctor. His staff goes out of their way for the patients and after all of this I have made a new friend and my problem is solved.
Dr. Bregman & Dr. Ricciardi performed surgery on my left foot on July 22nd at the Siena campus as an outpatient. And this is to inform you that I was so pleased with their services and their expertise from their professionalism, bedside manner, etc. I had gone to Dr. Bregman as a last resort after being treated by 2 foot doctors here, and I must say he's the best. I'm still under his care and I just want you to know that your hospital is, indeed, fortunate to have him on your faculty/staff.
Since I work full time and am in fairly good health, I'm not used to having surgery at all, I was nervous and apprehensive, but I've had a foot problem for about a year, and Dr. Bregman performed a nerve decompression..he was honest with me and let me ask as many questions as I wanted which was especially refreshing and his face wasn't in a computer while he spoke to me, which is the norm these days. However, I am cognizant of how the medical field has become so high tech in our computer age. That is what makes him special; he is a people person and really puts his patients at ease!
From the moment my husband and I arrived at your facility at 5:15 am in the morning, I was treated with kindness, respect and a caring manner which I have not experienced in too many medical facilities here in Las Vegas. I have been a resident here for 18 yrs. and came from California where the medical treatment that I received there was par excellence. Your preop nurse who I visited a couple days before my surgery was fantastic..I can't remember her name, however, it's probably in your computer system; the nurses in the pre-op section and the nurses in the recovery room were phenomenal as well.
Thank you for this opportunity to write to you and thank you, again for your staff!

Back in October 2014 I had a consult with Dr. Bregman. I complained of symptoms that felt like my foot wouldn't work and there was a lot of pain. It felt like my bones were breaking when I would walk. Dr. Bregman after examining me, discovered that I had nerve damage (Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome) and plantar fasciitis on my left foot. I then went on to have a tarsal tunnel release and a partial plantar fasciotomy with stem cells. Once the initial surgery pain was gone which was not very long, I became more aware of pain in my lower leg that was on the outside of my foot, which at first I thought it was because I was favoring that side do to the pain I had had on the left inside of my foot. My tarsal tunnel pain was gone but this new pain was different. I also had injured my knee around the same time, which made things worse and probably helped cause this problem.
When I went back to Dr. Bregman he started examining my leg and tapping on my lower leg, which would trigger that same pain in my foot. I thought it was kind of strange that a nerve in my leg would cause foot pain. He injected me with a local anesthetic in my leg and my pain was virtually gone. He then performed nerve decompressions in two different places where my nerves were being pinched. This was my common and superficial peroneal nerves. Once this surgery was healed I no longer had that pain in my foot. I am now 100% pain free. I can squeeze my foot and walk and which I could not do at all before surgery. Dr. Bregman did a fantastic job and really knows his stuff and I would recommend him to anyone with nerve problems in their legs or feet.
