DR. Czekaj, is the best at taking care of me. I have been a patient of his for a while and travel from uptown just to see him. He is very professional, caring and easy to talk to. His staff is great as well.

Just didn't seem interested in me as a patient at all. Barely looked at my foot. Didn't ask about any other concerns. Had me in and out in mere minutes.

I would probably feel more comfortable with going to him if they re-did the floors. I know this sounds weird but when you are going to a foot doctor for a wart you don't want to come out with something worse. I am worried i am going to get a fungus from the gross rugs, tiles and seats in the office. I think he is a little quiet but i think he's a good dr.

Dr. Czekaj has performed surgery on both of my feet (two different times) and has done an excellent job. He is not much of a talker so I ask many questions of which he's very happy to answer. I had bunions and have healed well and within the expectations he has given me. The staff here are really nice too. I've already recommended him to many of my friends.

Dr. Czekaj (pronounced Check-EYE) is good at what he does. I came into the appointment not feeling the pain I felt when I initially scheduled, but I explained to him what had happened over the past couple weeks and what I felt the cause was and he was able to locate the issue by pressing on different areas of my foot and putting stress on others. He made his diagnosis, provided some advice for how to recover, gave me a prescription for some anti-inflammatory medicine and I was on my way. Sometimes we have obvious things wrong with our feet, and sometimes we have not-so-obvious things wrong with our feet. Dr. Czekaj did a good job and I'll be back to see him if I have any issues in the future.

I've had a terrible experience in the past with a different podiatrist, so i was aprehensive about having once again a similar problem on my foot. And to top things off, this time the condition was quickly turning into a serious (and painful!) infection that was threatening to spread up my leg. Thankfully, this time I lucked out with the physician. Dr.Czekaj was very competent and knowledgeable, beyond his seemingly young age. The doctor was patient and thoughtful, which definitely put me at ease. He handled the affected area with care and dexterity. The staff was friendly and courteous.This was my first time using ZocDoc, and I couldn't be a more satisfied customer, with both the service and the physician. Highly recommend!

Adequate care, but not the most forthcoming of doctors. Information about ailment and treatment was relatively vague, and I sometimes felt like I was pulling teeth (or asking too many dumb questions) to get more information. Very accessible office and helpful support staff; this is a good place if you're in a pinch or need immediate care.

He spent literally 5 minutes with me and had possibly the coldest bedside manner I've ever experienced. While I'm guessing/ hoping he's competent, and my problem isn't serious, I was surprised that he immediately wanted to give me a cortisone shot before exploring other options. I LOVED the doctor who was here before and has mysteriously disappeared. The office is really, really shabby, too. Unexpected for this part of the city.

Dr. Czekaj is knowledgeable and efficient. For my situation there were a couple of options for treatment. He explained the options to me, citing the effectiveness and pros and cons of each, and allowed me to choose what worked best for me. His demeanor seemed low key and relaxing. I actually enjoyed my visit (once we go through the shots!). I'll see him again for any issues with my feet and ankles in the future.

The girls at the front desk are adorable and super helpful (they took a lot of time to explain me how should I apply the medicine the next days) Dr. Czekaj was super profesional; he explained all the process and didn't mind to answer all my questions over and over (I could be such a pain in the ass). I totally recommend him!
