Verified Patient Reviews
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.
Very fast appointments - I've never had to wait more than 10 minutes to be seen and the doctor is quick and efficient.
My visit was decent. I was looking for a little more information/guidance on what could be done to help prevent and fix my condition.
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.
He was very knowledgeable and recommended solutions to my issues.
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.
Very helpful and attentive staff. Dr. Czekaj gave me enough time and attention. If you want a no-BS foot doctor, he's the man.
He's very knowledgeable and explained clearly what medical alternatives are open to me.
Easy and solved the problem right away. He's clear and takes the time to explain.
As always, Dr. Czekaj was knowledgeable, pleasant and courteous. The treatment he prescribed is beginning to take effect. Both he and his staff are professional, helpful and have good people skills.
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.
The doctor seemed to be very bored and uninvolved.
Very effective, and kind to my feet.
He was a really great doctor. I was so scared of the appointment but he talked me through everything and made me feel comfortable with my decision. He had great bedside manner as well. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needed a great podiatrist.
He is the best podiatrist. Takes care of me right away and makes me laugh the whole time!
Professional and informative !
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 environment was not really professional and he left the decision up to me which was odd... aren't you the doctor?
Easy in and easy out with practical information and an honest answer on what will help most.
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!
I had an early appointment, and Doctor Czekaj and his staff we're friendly and quick. The office was a little drab once inside. I would go back if I needed to see a foot doctor again.
great guy, knew what was wrong, and handled it immediately
i am very grateful to dr. czekaj for treating my foot problem and for his suggestion that an orthotic insert should help to prevent a recurrence.
He is very knowledgable and clear, conservative when it comes to treatment, and really listens to his patients. I've seen him for a couple of years.
Dr. Czekaj is really patient and informative. He will take his time to hear your concerns, and provide detailed feedback and options for appropriate treatment (if nec.). Also, very comfortable environment and staff.
The Dr. was very nice and answered all of my questions. He allowed me to make my decision on the treatment options available and was not pushy. The staff was very professional and accommodating.
It would be difficult to describe my visit to Dr. Czekajy without including personal medical information and condiitions. Dr. Czekaj is a great help in resolving these problems. I have recommended Dr. Czekaj to friends, Both he and the staff are courteous and knowledgeable.
Dr. Czekaj was considerate of my feelings as I was upset over what was going on with my toe. I didn't have to wait long, and the office staff was quick and kind. I was very pleased with my visit. Highly recommended!
I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY!! THE OFFICE STAFF WERE ALSO GREAT!!
Very professional and efficient visit; just what I was looking for. In and out, no problems.
Excellent experience! Super fast + answered all my questions about my broken toe.
It was my first time visit and I didnt feel like a stranger. All staff is very welcoming and atentive. Aaron Czekaj DPM was very professional and helped me understanding what happenened with my foot.
Dr. Czekaj was friendly, clear, and to the point. He did the X-ray himself, and diagnosed me on the spot. He gave me 2 treatment options and recommended the more conservative one when I asked, at least to start.
Answered all of my questions patiently.
I thought he was very nice, professional and efficient. He had an excellent manner with my 11 yr old daughter.
a very good visit, and a good staff.
He listened to my complaints, evalulated my condition, & gave me the necessary treatment.
I had been visiting two different doctors (a dermatologist and an orthopedic doctor) for a problem in my left foot for a while. This was a hassle due to their inconvenient locations and long wait times for appointments. After realizing that I could visit a podiatrist for both issues, I could schedule an appointment with Aaron right away. I liked how quickly he dealt with my issues during the visit. I'm still unsure if these will get fixed applying the treatment he recommended, but I'm hopeful.
I came in exactly the same time as another client. We were both booked for 12:30... There is only one doctor.... Why have two people booked for the exact same time for ONE doctor? I was a new patient they had her go in first. I then proceeded to wait another half hour. Why not just schedule one of us at 1pm instead?
Appointment was quick and professional, and everyone at the office was wonderful. My only complaint is the long wait time, and the office could use a bit of updating (but not bad!).
Great doctor highly recomend
Office could use a little updating but the doctor and staff were very kind and helpful!
Very thorough. Answered all my questions. Made me feel comfortable.
Down-to-earth, direct, clear, personable, open.
It tells me a lot when I go to a doctor’s office for the first time and the staff greets me with a smile and is genuinely glad to see me. Then, after meeting the doctor who greeted me with a smile, looked me in the eye and extended his hand, I knew that I had made a good choice. After asking me what I felt the problem was he gave me a thorough examination and clearly explained to me what was going on and that I had several options to consider. He answered all of my questions and together we decided to start with the least invasive approach… I feel great! I have already recommended Dr. Aaron Czekaj to several friends and will continue to do so. And, to be totally honest, he’s easy on the eyes too.
Very courteous doctor and staff
Excellant experience from the online scheduling to the treatment of an ingrown toe nail. Dr. Czekaj has a very calming bedside manner, as well.??
As usual, prompt, curteous, and took time to answer questions. Gracias!
hes so sexy ;)
He was great. Quick and gave me what I was looking for.
My big toe was badly infected and I was very apprehensive about what to expect when I got to his office. My visit was pleasant from beginning to end. Dr.Czekaj explained to me exactly what the problem was and then told me what the medical procedure would entail. He kept the medical jargon to a minimum. Dr. Czekaj also informed me of what was required of me pertaining to the follow-up care of the procedure that was done. I would highly recommend his services to anyone who needs it.
He was professional - informative and overall a great doctor!
Professional, patient, responsive to my questions and concerns
Thoughtful and empathetic.
Office equipment is old, worn and dirty. Needs a serious update.
Very pleasant; took the time to answer a lot questions.
I liked him
Dr. Czakaj is very knowledgeable. My wife referred me to him and I wanted to check him out due to the wonderful results she has received. I see why she continues to go back. I would advise anyone with podiatry issues to schedule an appointment now. He also has a referral program. You get 2 movie tickets for every referral that mentions your name after you have initially seen him.
Very personable and the staff were extremely helpful/friendly.
It was my first time here, and he was more than helpful with my questions and needs; very informative. He was a nice guy who seemed to care about my foot problems. I had to schedule another appointment, and unfortunately it fell on a day that he wasn't available to see patients, but he was more than accommodating.
Very quickly diagnosed the problem and treated it. Good bedside manner.
Great place! I was in pain..but the vibe in the office is relaxed, professional and fun. Best news; the splinter was removed!
I did not find the information provided by the doctor very helpful - I could have googled it instead. Not worth the time or money spent, I walked out without any real recommendation on how to fix my foot problems.
The visit was great. Dr. Czekaj was able to diagnose my issue and provide the appropiate treatment so the issue could be resolved. He was very attentive to my needs.
Dr. Aaron Czekaj was super nice and so were the staff at his office. I am seeking other medical help upon his advice as it seems it's more of a nerve type issue but the whole experience was pleasant. Being the West Coast transplant to NY that I am, I am used to be treated well by doctors however in NY it's usually like I am just another number, however Dr.Czekaj acted like he actually cared even though I was a new patient. "NOW THAT'S WHAT I CALL CUSTOMER SERVICE". Hopefully I don't have to see him again but only because I don't want any more foot issues. I will recommend him to anyone I know because he is a great doctor.
Aaron is a terrific doctor and a great guy.
He was extremely nice and helpful!
Good experience , he was very knowledgable.
He is fantastic, very profesional and concerned.
Extremely professional and was able to get rid of plantar warts that 2 other doctors over a years time were unable to do. Staff was very friendly.
He's a professional who is clearly interested in his patient's well-being.
We're working on resolving the issue.
very professional, very good.
Good doctor - fast service.
Well-informed. Asked good questions. Very thorough.
Extremely friendly and accommodating staff and doctor. Gentle, thorough and caring bedside manner. Altogether a positive experience.
I went to see the doctor because I had a little piece of glass lodged in the ball of my foot. The doctor demonstrated such a tenacity and determination that impressed me very positively. He was able to remove it despite it being very deep in. Bravo!
Cool funny guy, level sets expectations. I like him :)
Seen on time and very attentive. Dr. Czekaj is very personable and offers helpful alternatives to address medical issues.
Excellent experience. Very accommodating to the nature of my visit. Had an ingrown toenail, didn't even feel the needle or surgery! Highly recommend!
Excellent doctor. Took care of the problem and was very professional and skilled.
He got rid of my foot pain. I am 100% going back to him.
Very friendly and knowledgeable!
He was very quick and efficient in assessing my injury. Comforting and convincing that I should be OK with a minimum amount of care. Staff is nice and very helpful in processing medical insurance claim.
great doc, very knowledgeable, very gentle
Very nice and got me in and out the door in 30 minutes if you can believe it! Excellent experience, not dreading the revisit in 2 weeks at all!
I received excellent care from Dr. Czekaj.
Awesome. Fast, High Quality Care.
It was a brief visit but I did like the doctor a lot and hope to see him again.
great doctor --highly recommend --
Easy going, informative and very quick. I arrived early...got in right away and was out in a jiffy.
