  • A patient and her family and friends have been with Dr. Romansky for multiple decades.

    "I have been going to Healthmark foot and Ankle for many years. Also, I have known Dr. Romansky since my sons played high school soccer in the early 1990's when he treated the team for various injuries. The saying that the doctor is only as good as his staff rings very true. From the office manager Randi, to the office staff, and the nursing staff I have been more than pleased. If it's for an emergency or for a simple question, my needs have been met quickly and courteously. The entire staff is efficient, pleasant and skillful: a well-oiled machine! Dr. Romansky is the best! Not only is he a great podiatrist but also someone who cares for my overall well-being. He is very proactive and will recommend a physician or medical service for another problem I might have. He has always greeted me with a smile and a touch of his abounding sense of humor! I have sent many family members as well as friends to Healthmark, and they too have been pleased with this practice. I would recommend Health Foot and Ankle to anyone!"

  • Over 17 Years of Satisfaction

    "Dr. David Erfle has been my podiatrist for over 17 years. What an outstanding physician! He is extremely knowledgeable in the podiatry field and is a very kind, compassionate, outgoing person. He considers your overall health- not just your feet! Dr. Erfle has performed surgery on my husband's foot and has treated my 17-year-old son since he was 8. Never once have we been disappointed with anything Dr. Erfle has done or recommended to us. He is a top notch doc and i would never hesitate to recommend him to anyone."

  • A patient tells of her autistic son's care from Dr. Erfle

    "My child who has autism is a patient of Dr Erfle's, I could not have found a better doctor, surgeon and friend to my son then Dr Erfle. My son had to have surgery on both of his feet and Dr Erfle was amazing with him from the first appointment and all through his care. Dr. Erfle took his time and explained everything to my son, he was very patient and kind; he truly has great compassion for his patients. My son now considers Dr. Erfle as his good buddy. I would recommend Dr. Erfle to anyone. Not only is he an excellent surgeon, Dr. Erfle is a really great guy too. You also will not find better staff then the staff at Healthmark Foot & Ankle."

  • I have learned a lot from Dr. Romansky and I would recommend him to anyone.

    "Before meeting Dr. Romansky, I had been struggling with ankle pain and joint laxity for the better part of a year. The issue continued to become worse and began to limit my activity and lifestyle. I am a runner, backpacker, soccer player and coach, so my ankle issue was less than ideal After being told it was osteoarthritis and having doctors in Harrisburg, PA act indifferent towards the problem, my frustrations turned to hope when a former teammate from Elizabethtown College recommended that I visit Dr. Romansky. I decided to make the trip to Media, PA and my first visit with Dr. Romansky was an eye opener. Not only did Doc Romansky make me feel comfortable, he understood how I hurt myself playing soccer and took the time to explain the diagnosis to me. He was thorough, good natured, and direct. I trusted him immediately, especially after he analyzed and detailed the X-rays and MRI for me. When the time came, both Dr. Romansky took the time to answer all of my questions regarding the planned surgery. I clearly understood the procedure and expectations. On the day of surgery and at the follow up appointments your staff kept me laughing and did a stellar job. In my opinion, the entire experience was top notch. Not one time while traveling between Harrisburg and Media was I disappointed or bothered to make the trip. During my recovery and follow up appointments, the doctors did a fantastic job of explaining the situation and answering my many questions while providing valuable information regarding my rehab and return to full activity. It has been one year since my surgery and I can sincerely say that the outcome is better than I expected. I have learned a lot from Dr. Romansky and I would recommend him to anyone. I am very happy to say that I am now back to full activity. Thank you!"

    "Doctor Romansky is #1 in our book and we highly recommend him to all. He has always gone above and beyond for our whole family. An extremely knowledgeable podiatrist he has treated our family for many ailments. From fractured ankles to shin splints; ingrown toe nails to orthotics; recommending other top notch doctors in different fields to training programs for our children before they entered United States Academies. He has always been there for us, He is a great listener, very thorough in his care and relates very well to physically active adults as he is one himself. The whole support staff at Healthmark Foot and Ankle is just as wonderful as he is. We couldn't ask for a better doctor, we only wish there were more like him."

    "I am a recreational runner and it is my passion. I have been a patient of Doctor Romansky for over fifteen years. I first came to Dr. Romansky because I wanted to find out why I was experiencing so many lower leg injuries. Me past doctors only treated the injury, but would not help in finding the cause. With Dr. Romansky's vast experience from treating professional and college athletes, he has helped me understand the many components that go into keep me healthy and injury-free. Dr. Romansky's goal is to get you back to what you love to do as quickly as possible utilizing the most up-to-date methods and medications available. My husband and I have two daughters they are also active in sports. They are now patients of Dr. Romansky because he is the only doctor I trust to treat their spots injuries."

  • As a patient of Dr. Romansky I have nothing to say but good things.

    "As a patient of Dr. Romansky I have nothing to say but good things. Over the past years he has taken care of me, my husband, and both my Parents. I find him to be a very special Dr, Not only is he an excellent Dr but he cares about you and takes time to listen and gives you help when needed. It always seems like you are his only patience that he takes care of because that's the kind of person he is. You don't find many Doctors that do that. This is why I put him at the top of my list as being that caring Doctor you can also call a friend. That's what makes him so special."
