About Desh:

“I was very happy to be seen in Boise when I had an issue with my brace for my right leg. It was fixed and I have had many compliments on my Mary Jane’s and how cute they are. Thank you so much for enabling me to walk better.”
– Holly

“Desh – You are a master of your craft!! After 3 days my foot is very comfortable in the brace. I was able to buy a shoe the same size as my foot which also helps me work better. For 10 years I have been to Montana, Utah, and Idaho Falls orthotists. I have gone through 5 different braces – none of which compare to the brace you crafted for me! Thank you for your expertise! Thank you for driving hours to come to Salmon from Boise! Thank you!”
– Becky

“I come from across the country to see Desh! I’ve been to about 8 other practitioners and I still go back to Desh! She is the BEST!!”
– Christine

"Desh, Thanks so much. I am so very thankful for you. I love the way I am able to walk. I’m not even using my cane on uneven ground. You are nothing short of a miracle for me."
– Darlene

"Desh, I first came to you last year after a two week flyfishing trip that caused fasciitis in both of my very skinny feet. You built orthotics and I’ve used them faithfully because my feet simply feel better when the orthotics are in place. I wanted you to know I just returned from another two week flyfishing trip with even more wading and more hiking and I returned with no fasciitis. I attribute this directly to the orthotics that I put in my wading boots each and every day. Many thanks. I’m a believer and whenever foot issues come up, I mention your name."
– Marshall Garrett

"I won’t go anywhere else! Desh is the best!"
– Leslie
