Dr. Gambardella was fantastic at making me feel comfortable and informed during my bunion surgery.

Highly recommend this practice

I have been seeing Dr Gambardella for three years now. Have Charcot foot which needs corrective surgery. Admittedly I am procrastinating and have only been doing wound care. Dr. G has been more than patient with us and always available regardless of time or day. He answers quickly and always takes time with his discussions. Still deciding.

Thorough, kind, and compassionate

I’ve been going to Bloomfield Foot Specialists since 2014, seeing Dr. Gambardella. I have severe plantar fasciitis, sprained both ankles through the years, and severed a tendon in my ankle last year. I travel from the Waterbury area to Bloomfield to see Dr. Gambardella at Bloomfield Foot Specialists, and will continue to do so.

Dr. Gambardella is thorough, kind, compassionate as he talks to me about my options for my various injuries. I trust him with my feet and ankles, and highly recommend any of the doctors at Bloomfield Foot Specialists.

Alex C

Very professional and caring.

To anyone needing not only podiatry but for those of you who like myself visited over five of what was considered to be the best in the business all five gave me no options except removal of my left leg from the knee down. The last dr i saw was finally honest and said if anyone could completely reconstruct my left foot ankle, bones, Achilles tendon, and much more it was Dr. Gambardella. I met with Dr. G and he asked me one question do you want to keep the leg or not? He told me straight out what was involved which was several surgeries and at least a two year commitment including yes the pain, im grateful to this highly gifted, educated and probably the best physician i have ever had and i have had a total of approximately 14 surgeries in my life he not only saved my leg but he might not know it he also saved my life read between the lines. I would recommend and have to anyone who needs his talent who by the way was recently my roommate whos surgery was also a complete success. Dr. Gambardella has been there for me night and day when needed, his team is also very professional and caring as well god bless all of you and thank you again for caring and saving my life! P. S. I promise to finish paying for this even if it has to be done through osmosis, lol happy new year ! I cant wait to get back to the Appalachian trail !

John S.

Front desk and doctor were very polite

I had an emergency and called them. I was able to get an appointment right away and when I got to the office front desk was very polite. Once I was done with paperwork it only took about 5 min to be called to the back and the Dr was very polite took care of my needs without hesitations. Went on my way please and taken care off. Thanks

Vance B

Great experience

Great office and staff. I felt very comfortable here.


Very pleasant

Always a very pleasant experience with Dr LeBlanc and staff.


Very happy with the service

Staff is friendly. Appointments are easy to make and I’m seen on time. I’m very happy with the service I’ve received.


Extremely patient focused

Dr LeBlanc is extremely patient focused, friendly and communicates all options clearly. I will return and refer others.



Since the first time I came to Dr. Gambardella’s office his staff was plate, attentive and helpful. They took care of my needs and Dr. Gambardella himself was excellent and informative.


Great results

I have had plantar fasciitis for over 20 years. Last year I had my left knee replaced and this lead to a very debilitating and painful flare up of plantar fasciitis. I tried stretching, soaking and taking ibuprofen to lower the inflammation. After 3 treatments by Dr. Leblanc using EPAT, I am pain free. I can now plan my day without fear of having to put pressure on my left foot. The more time that elapses since treatment the better the results. I would use EPAT again without hesitation.


Outstanding service

I first came to the office approximately seven years ago to have a plantar wart removed. This was treated successfully. While I was at the office. Dr. LeBlanc noticed I have flat feet. She recommended orthotics. Since having the orthotics it has tremendously improved my ability to be on my feet and work long hours without any severe pain. The orthotics have also improved my posture. The service I received then and continue to receive is outstanding.


Very caring

I’m blessed to be in the hands of this very caring foot practice. Dr. Lynn M. LeBlanc and her staff are the best, and it shows. My feet are happy because of them.


Great work

I have been a patient of Dr. LeBlanc’s for over ten years. I am very grateful for the kindness and care that I have received from Dr. LeBlanc and her entire staff. God Bless their great work!

Sister LM


Dr. LeBlanc and her staff are WONDERFUL. My family began care here when my daughter was 9 years old. Dr. LeBlanc is gentle and caring. We are always accommodated quickly and with the utmost care and respect. I am thankful our pediatrician recommended her office.

Deborah F


A great doctor.

Dr. Gambardella’s entire office staff is wonderful.

Betty F

Highly recommend

I started coming here when I worked in Bloomfield. I had severe plantar fasciitis. After a few treatments, I was as good as new. I now work in Waterbury and drive to Bloomfield to see Dr. G.

Kimberley H

Excellent surgeon

Dr. Gambardella did extensive surgery on my son’s ankle when, after an old injury, he was unable to walk and in severe pain.

Dr. G has great credentials and training and took on my son”s complicated surgery with excellent results. His extra training and certification allow him to treat not just the foot and ankle, but the bones of the lower leg.

We recommend him as an excellent surgeon as well as a kind man.


Dr. LeBlanc and Dr. Gambardella are the best!

The staff is extremely knowledgeable of foot issues as demonstrated by their attentive care to their patients. Dr. LeBlanc and Dr. Gambardella are the best! I recently had foot surgery by Dr. G. I was able to call his personal cell phone when I had questions or concerns. Who does that any more. And, Dr. LeBlanc will try every known treatment without you having to sell an arm and uses conservative approaches with the latest techniques. The practice believes surgery is required after all other options have been tried. Great doctors, great staff!

The doctors here are amazing

Highly recommend Dr. Gambardella and his office

Great foot doctors. Dr G performed surgery on my 12 year old daughter and was amazing with her. She actually loved going to see him! He has a great bedside manner and I would highly recommend him and his office to anyone. As an adult patient I have also had the same experience with him and his office staff! Dr G is caring, confident and he really listens to his patients.
