Hi, Ross

I, too live in the San Francisco Bay area. In searching treatment locations on heelspurs.com, only 5 California locations come up- two are vererinary practices (they shoot horses, don't they?!) The other 3 locations are in the L.A. area. If you have pf in both feet, you might consider flying to Canada if cost is a concern - that's what I did...or Dr. Zuckerman in New Jersey - he has treated so many more patients than the docs in L.A. Good Luck! p.s. if anyone knows of a northern ca. facility that is not on heelspurs.com, let us know. Thanks, Rose

I also live in the Bay area, and traveled to LA to get ESWT done in Dory Shapow's office. They are listed in ESWT treatment locations.

Rose - just a bit of info....for anyone who'd be more comfortable traveling to Dr. Z instead of using an 'unknown' in CA, right now Southwest Air has a round-trip fare from San Diego to Baltimore for $198.00.

Ross, and Rose

I talked to a wonderful pod by the name of Dr John Zimmerman. His number is
661-663-8483. Also, you can look at the healthronics site http://www.healthtronics.com/ Look under treatment centers for Ossatron. He's listed there. Not all the pods who have Ossatron are listed on the heelspurs website.

He's in Bakersfield CA. He seemed very caring, an is an extremely knowledgeable, and experienced pod. He seems like a second Dr. Z. I don't think his prices are that high. He also suffered from PF at one time. I live in San Francisco, but would see him if I decide to get the ESWT. I think Bakersfield is around 140 miles North of LA. There are shuttle flights that take less than an hour, or you could drive there. Call, and ask to talk to him. You'll see what I mean after you speak with him.
