Discover what our patients have to say regarding their office visit, surgical experience or recovery process.  We also encourage our existing patients to share their own experience!


  • Podiatry

“The Harrisonburg Foot Clinic is the place to go for all of your podiatry needs. The doctors and staff are all skilled professionals who are attentive to their patients' individual needs. It is reassuring to be treated with genuine respect and understanding.”


  • Bunionectomy

“I recently had a bunion removed and Dr. Cedeno did a superior job! The consummate professional, he explained everything very well and I was back on my feet in no time. His office staff is equally praiseworthy and accommodating. I highly recommend the Harrisonburg Foot & Ankle Clinic to anyone considering any type of diagnosis or corrective procedure.”


  • Ingrown Toenails

“I have suffered from ingrown toenails my whole life. Two of my children have also dealt with the pain and discomfort of ingrown toenails. Dr. Hori has removed both sides of both big toenails for both myself and my daughter. My son had a section of nail removed, so that it grew in straighter. I have to say that it was the best thing that we have done. The procedure is performed at the consulting appointment, with no waiting to have it performed. Dr. Hori is very professional and caring. The toe was numbed and the procedure is very quick. They give you very clear instructions for the at home care. I haven't had any complications from the procedures that I have had. My daughter, who is nine years old and has suffered terribly with lots of pain, no longer has any problems from her toenails.

I highly recommend, if you are suffering from painful ingrown toenails, that you have them removed. The procedure permanently fixes the nail so that there isn't any more pain from the ingrown section of nail. A few days of very mild discomfort, for a lifetime of no more problems. I can't thank Dr. Hori enough for the relief that she has brought to our family. Thank-you Dr. Hori, and thank-you Harrisonburg Foot and Ankle Clinic!”


  • Achilles and Toe Surgery

“Dr. Cedeño performed surgery on both my Achilles and toes in June. He and his staff are extremely professional and very caring. I appreciated the therapy that he suggested, it helped with the healing process. He also kept a close watch in case I developed a blood clot and sent me to Sentara for ultrasounds. I would highly recommend Dr. Cedeño and the Harrisonburg Foot and Ankle Clinic.”


  • Plantar Fasciitis

“I developed heel pain and saw Dr. Hori who diagnosed and treated what proved to be plantar fasciitis. On both occasions, Dr. Hori was incredibly patient and empathetic with the discomfort involved. After 3 weeks on oral nsaids and only moderate relief, she gently injected my heel with a steroid. Within 3 weeks, I had no further problems. She repeatedly worked me in for a visit the same day I called her office. Dr. Hori is a gifted and kind podiatrist who truly cares about her patients and always exhibits a concerned and special bedside manner. As a pharmacist, I have had the opportunity to recommend several of my patients to her, including my wife, and each of them has raved of her both her diagnostic and clinical expertise. I would heartily endorse and recommend Dr. Hori to anyone with foot problems.”


  • Foot/Ankle Injury

“After injuring my foot/ankle in the spring of 2017, I limped around in pain for several months before finally coming to the realization that my foot wasn’t going to get any better on its own. So I carefully researched doctors within the local Harrisonburg area and made an appointment with Dr. Cedeno. After reviewing the results of the MRI, Dr. Cedeno explained my condition which consisted of an older injury, along with the new injury, and suggested that I needed surgery. However, because I was reluctant to consider surgery, Dr. Cedeno ushered me through the other possible avenues of treatment which included oral steroids and a cortisone injection. Neither of these attempts was successful, and so I finally decided to have the surgery he recommended. I’m glad I did. It has been three months since the surgery. My foot/ankle feels better than it has in a long while, and it continues to improve. I'm walking better than at any time in recent memory, and I'm actually looking forward to being completely pain free. I can’t say enough about Dr. Cedeno’s patience, caring attitude, skill and professionalism. In addition, his assistants and office staff were excellent, as was the practice he recommended for physical therapy. If not for this excellent group of people, I would still be in a lot of unnecessary pain. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an excellent podiatrist.”


  • Neuroma

“Excellent Doctor. I would highly recommend Dr. Cedeno for your foot and ankle issues.”


  • Bilateral foot surgeries with major corrections

“I had right foot surgery in 2012 after suffering with foot pain for several years. I realized I had to do something when I notice the pain was altering the way I walked and was causing pain in my ankle, knee and hip. My foot required a major revision of multiple bones. It has healed beautifully. My left foot pain again started to cause problems further up the leg and back. I knew this time not to wait. I had the surgery in February 2018, and it was less complicated and fortunately did not require as much revision. Being a healthcare provider myself, I find Dr Hori to be the perfect combination of a very skilled surgeon, a compassionate listener and someone you can relate too. I highly recommend her. In addition, the medical and office staff are friendly, efficient and thorough. I have nothing but good things to say about my experience. Plus, I love their new building!”


  • Surgery on right big toe, bone spurs, cysts, arthritis right foot, 2 ingrown toenails removed

“Dr. Hori was excellent in explaining to me what to expect from surgery and what she would be doing to correct my issues. She and her staff have been very pleasant and friendly to me and my wife throughout all the office visits and recovery time. Would highly recommend Dr. Hori to anyone needing surgery or having problems with their feet.”


  • Ankle Scope

“I have been suffering with ankle pain for many years. After a close friend recommended I see Dr. Cedeno, and ensured he would know what to do to finally rid me of my pain, I went ahead and made an apptointment. From the minute I walked into the office I was greeted by his lovely staff, and I saw Dr. Cedeno at my scheduled appointment time. After a thorough visit and diagnosis, he ensured that an ankle scope would cure my pain. He was right!! I had an ankle scope and was back to my normal workout/running routine after only 2 weeks. I am so happy and this community (and me) are so lucky to have Dr. Cedeno!!”


  • Foot treatments:
    Amputation and Tendon Cut

“I have been treated by Dr Hori for several foot issues, and I have found her and her staff to be skilled and caring! They have treated problems quickly before the problems could develop into worse problems after explaining all the options to me! I have been very pleased with the care I have received!”


  • Bone Spurs

“I had bone spur(s) on my heel and surgery was done by wonderful Dr. Cedeno. He's really the best. During the first visit, he clearly explained the long recovery after surgery. I am very very pleased with his work, and I d recommend him to anyone who needs spur surgery. I am recovering nicely, and the process is occurring with physical therapy. Not only him, but the staff were awesome. They went beyond their job description making sure my needs are met. Fabulous! Also, I wanted to mention the RMH staff who worked with Dr. Cedeno for surgery. Wonderful and compassionate. Interpreting services were provided at both the office visits and hospital (outpatient). Thank you!”


  • Surgery on Left Foot for Morton's Neuroma

“I went to see Dr. Cenedo about pain in my foot and toes. He immediately knew what was wrong when I described my issue, and he scheduled me for surgery to have the nerve removed. I was off work for 6 weeks to heal, and now the pain is gone. I would highly recommend Dr.Cenedo and the has wonderful and friendly staff and nurses. They were very caring and helpful when I called the office with a problem or question. I greatly appreciate everything they have done for me.”


  • Surgery for Morton's Neuroma

“I visited Dr. Hori for foot pain. She diagnosed my problem as Morton's Neuroma. She tried injections first, which brought temporary relief for a time. Finally, decided that I needed surgery to correct the problem. She was absolutely correct!! Surgery and now no pain, no problem!! She was caring and very professional from the beginning of my care. Highly recommend this practice to anyone!!”


  • Bunionectomy

“Had a great doctor and appointment scheduled when I needed them. Dr. Hori is very good and explains things so you can understand.”


  • Bone Spur Removal;
    Plantar Faciotomy

“Thank you Dr. Hori for two successful surgeries! You have make a big difference to me. After 30 years of suffering with plantar facitis, the pain relief is incredible. I am looking forward to healing up form the spur removal and resuming my normal fitness activities!.”


  • Bone Biopsy

“Dr. Cedeno, his medical staff, and the front office staff have been very professional since my first visit. No matter what issue I may be having, they are always willing to help, they never make me feel as though I am inconviencing them, and they eturn calls in a timely manner. At the first appointment, Dr. Cedeno explained to me the complxity of my fracture and the long process it would take to fix it. Not what I wanted to hear, but what I needed to hear. I could tell he was very caring and he was a doctor that did not leave you guessing what was next. I appreciate the up front and honesty. I have started the journey to getting my foot fixed, and I look forward to having Dr. Cedeno and his staff along for the long haul. Highly recommend. They go above and beyond as a whole practice. Thanks”


  • Foot Surgery

“This is the second foot done by Dr. Hori. I can't say enough good things about her. Great care from start to release. Feet are like new.”


  • Bunionectomy

“I've been coming to see Dr.Cedano since I was in the fifth grade. Yes, that's very young, but the severity of the congenital defect in my feet worsened by the day. Now, as a junior in high school, and a highly competitive one who runs three back to back seasons, surgery no longer became just an option. It became indispensable. While the time for the surgery and recovery did temporarily take me out of the sports, this expert team was convivial and knew what they were doing the whole. Over the years they have always extended a warm hand in greeting me when I arrive and I trust their approach. As I near another season, now able to race to the best of my capabilities without pain, and even look at competing in college, I extend many thank you’s and my gratitude for a team as professional and sublime as Harrisonburg Foot and Ankle.”


  • Foot Surgery

“This is the second foot I've had done by Dr. Hori. I can't say enough good things about her. Great care from start to release. Feet are like new.”


  • Hammertoe Correction

“Thank you, Dr. Cedeno, for correcting my hammertoe of 30 years. It is absolutely wonderful to be able to walk pain free! I would recommend you and your office in a heartbeat.”


  • Ankle Arthroplasty (Ankle Replacement)

“I had my ankle replaced Jan. 4th 2016. It is now May 3rd and I have been walking without an ankle brace or crutch of any kind for 3 weeks. I am very happy with the results of my surgery and highly recommend Dr. Cedeno. His clinic and staff were all very helpful and considerate of my condition. My treatment at RMH Medical Center was excellent. Hopefully I won't, but if I need ankle, knee or hip attention in the future I will surely go to Dr. Cedeno.”


  • Bone Spur Surgery

“I first saw Dr. Hori in the fall of 2011 when I had a fairly large corn develop on the inside of the fifth toe. It was accompanied by a sharp pain in the toe that made it difficult to walk. Dr. Hori removed the corn and then took x-rays of the area. The x-rays revealed a bone spur in the toe that in turn caused the corn and the pain. She said that removing the corn would provide temporary relief but she advised that I return for in-office surgery to remove the bone spur.

Sure enough, the pain returned about three months later and I decided to have the surgery. Dr. Hori performed the surgery in the office. She worked quickly and confidently and except for a pinch when injecting the local anesthesia there was no discomfort during the procedure. Following the surgery she took x-rays to confirm that the bone spur was gone. I was able to walk immediately and only needed to wear a surgical boot for two days. The incision was very small and did not require a stitch.

In the past four weeks, I have been back for two follow-up visits and everything is fine. Recovery was quick and without any problems. I am back to my regular activities including three strenuous workouts a week at the local gym.

I can recommend Dr. Hori without reservation. She is competent, listens carefully and develops a good rapport with the patient.”


  • Ankle Pain

“Dr. Cedeno fixed my ankle pain recently and was caring in every sense of the word. I did not realize that we had him in town until somebody had told me about the new doc. I would highly recommend him for anything and I am glad he has joined the community!”


  • Plantar Fasciitis

“Wow.... I am so impressed with Dr. Cedeno. I had an appointment at 7:30 this morning and he actually saw me shortly after that. I was so impressed with his professionlism, but also Dr. Cedeno appeared to be human and have a sense of humor which put me at ease. He was very informative about my foot condition and explained causes, and solutions to the problem. I do not know when I have seen a doctor for anything that I felt so comfortable with and felt was truly concerned about my pain. I came upon this office by accident as I had gone to another podiatrist in town the day before and was left in a room for over an hour without any communication about why the doctor had not come in yet. I finally got up and told the receptionist that this was totally rude and I would find another place to go for my problem.

Well, praise the Lord I found the Harrisonburg Foot and Ankle Clinic. Everything from making the appointment. to leaving the office was a pleasant experience. AWESOME JOB FOLKS! And thank you Dr. Cedeno for the way you treated me. God bless you and may He prosper you! 2nd Corinthians 9:8-11”


  • Foot Treatment

I had pain in my foot for ten years. Dr. Hori examined my foot and operated same day. There was no pain at all. These people are very professional, and I'm walking fine. I recommend this doctor.


  • Plantar Fasciitis

Dr. Cedeno treated me for a very painful and persistent case of plantar fasciitis. The cortisone shots he administered made the difference in curing the condition. Thanks Dr. Cedeno!
