I met Dr. Mindi Dayton years ago when she took care of my dad. I have diabetes and wanted to have my feet checked. Her and her staff provided excellent care and service!


Listened to my long list of concerns. He addressed them all to my satisfaction.


Patient, thorough and vividly descriptive on found issues. Staff was wonderful and the clinic was pleasant.


It was nice to have someone that took the time to explain what’s going on and what alternatives there are. The support staff was great as well.


Always a great experience.


DR. Mindi took care of my toe pain. I felt better at once. I travel 100 miles to see her, and pay a premium, since it’s out of my insurance network. I highly recommend her.


Always great!


My feet have never felt better!


Dr. Mindi Dayton and her staff provided excellent care and service! I loved the thorough explanation of procedures to correct a hammertoe and bunion. Couldn’t have asked for anything better! Thanks!!!


Awesome and fast!

Fantastic care start to finish, very skilled doctors and staff.

Dr. Mindy, Tiffany, Rachel, and Stephanie are all very professional and always make you feel welcome and like they are very happy to help you with whatever your foot issues may be. Very glad to have them as our providers. They are the best!!!!


Dr. Dayton was knowledgeable, patient and easy to relate to. It was the 3rd time my daughter had the same ingrown toenail removed. Hopefully the last time it has to be done. It was by far the easiest and most painless experience. Can’t say enough good things.

I came to the Foot & Ankle Center of Iowa at one of my lowest points. I had 3 failed bunion surgeries prior, pain every single day, and I came to terms that would be my life at 24 years old. Dr. Dayton gave me a solution and I haven’t looked back! I am now pain FREE! I haven’t been pain free in almost 10 YEARS! I am back to running, jumping and playing sports. I would like to thank everyone from the Foot & Ankle Center from the bottom of my heart. You guys gave me a new life! Thank you!


I continue to be impressed with the quality of care and professional treatment by every person in the office of Doctors Dayton. I am greeted, brought back to x-ray, exam room in a very timely manner and with a pleasant atmoshere, the doctor is always kind, informative and efficient in taking care of my needs. 5 star place!


The staff at the foot and ankle center were very professional and thorough. Dr. Dayton also took the time to explain the situation and all my options. I would highly recommend the Foot and Ankle Center to anyone having foot issues.


Very professional staff. Short wait time and outstanding care.

From the time you walk in the door to the time you walk out the door, you feel appreciated and cared for. You feel the knowledge helping you to get better and they care about you getting better!!

Staff were very friendly & helpful. I arrived about a half hour before my scheduled my appointment & was able to get in. Doctor explained my options & the procedures offered. Was very satisfied with my visit.


I’ve always been 100% satisfied with the care and services provided by Dr. Dayton and his staff. From first consult to over a year after surgery I couldn’t ask for a more skilled team of people looking after me. The improvements they have made in my day to day quality of life has been amazing to say the least. Thank you all!


Not only does Dr Dayton’s office give you excellent care, but everyone there has a smile and is so positive! Such a great group of people!


Dr. Dayton’s team is always kind, professional, fun and supportive. I was very nervous about my upcoming procedure. The team made every effort to make sure I felt safe and comfortable. Top notch healthcare professionals!

Marissa F.

Absolutely the best providers. Being young for undergoing bunion surgery in additional to having bi-lateral (both done at same time under special circumstance), the care was amazing. They answered all my questions prior and were thorough explaining the process as well as what to expect. Surgery went well and despite myself being nervous/emotional, everyone at the surgery center comforted me to calm my nerves. During recovery I had Stephanie’s number who was so kind to check in on me to make sure I was feeling as comfortable as possible. I looked forward to each check-up visit as the staff is so friendly. Grateful for this experience and pleased with my results. Dr. Daytron literally wrote the book on bunions!!! You’re in the best hands + care.

Lyndsey P.

I can not express enough how knowledgeable the Dr.’s and staff are. From explaining procedures to assisting with insurance policies the staff are hands down amazing folks. Dr Mindi Dayton was exceptional her professional manner and her expertise in her field are unmatched. We couldn’t be more thankful for the amazing care recieved at The Foot and Ankle Center of Des Moines.


I always feel like I have the best care! She cares about my wellbeing. Answers all my questions before I even ask them. She knows what she is doing!


Dr Mindy Dayton and her entire staff are very professional and knowledgeable. Dr Dayton always explains what she is doing and why. She also never makes you feel like she is rushed or does not have whatever amount of time needed to answer all of your questions. Every experience with Dr M Dayton and Tiffany and Rachel is a good one. Thank you.

As a medical provider my income is dependent upon the number of patients I see in a day. This means I cannot take off an unlimited number of days for surgery and recovery. I wanted to have bunion surgery so that my shoes would fit better, and my bunion would not ache after a long day on my feet. I could not be off work or be non-weight bearing for several weeks. My family physician recommended that I see Dr. Dayton because he was doing a new procedure that did not require me to be non-weight bearing or off work for weeks. My surgery was done on a Thursday, I was non-weight bearing on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Monday morning, I was seen at Dr. Dayton’s office and fitted with a walking boot. I returned to work on Tuesday to do paperwork at my desk and began seeing patients again on Wednesday. I only missed 3 days from the office and 4 patient appointment days. I would and have recommended this procedure to many friends, family, and patients. I took no narcotic pain medication and had little to no pain. This would be unheard of with the traditional bunion surgery. This new procedure makes so much sense and I have nothing but good things to say about the procedure and the care I received from Dr. Dayton and his staff. 5 STARS for sure!


Great care and very informative. I would not go any where else for my care. Dr. Paul did my first bunion correction 2 1/2 years ago. Now I’m back for my other foot to be corrected.

Wes D.

I had a great experience from the moment I walked in the door. I was great very graciously by the lady behind the counter. Then my experience got even better when I was brought to the room. Stephanie was a professional through and through. I would recommend anyone with foot problems to go see the team here!!!


The front line staff are so nice, friendly, polite on the phone. They make you feel welcome as soon as you walk in, even during the covid craziness.

Pam S.

Call for your appointment today. This is the best surgery, the best doctor and the least pain. My feet don’t hurt anymore. The staff is amazing. I did one foot and couldn’t wait to do the second foot. Thank you Dr.Dayton’s.

Lindsey K.

My husband broke his toe back in March. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Stephanie and Dr. Dayton we’re very helpful. Grateful they were able to get us in on such short notice.
