Verified Patient Reviews
Fantastic. No wait. Dr Soomekh is friendly, professional, and took the time to answer any questions I had. I did not feel in any way rushed as I do with many doctors these days. I will definitely go back to him the next time I need to see a foot and ankle specialist.
I found my surgeon. I have been waiting to get my bunion surgery until I found the best doctor I could trust would do a great job. My friend told me about her amazing outcome after Dr. Soomekh fixed her bunion a few months ago, so I had to have a consult with him. He explained everything in detail that I could understand and gave me my options for what treatment would be best for me. I have great confidence in his knowledge and ability and I am scheduled for my surgery in 3 weeks. His staff was friendly and his office was warm and comforting. Thanks to my friend for her recommendation of Dr. Soomekh.
I loved how efficient Dr. Soomekh's office is and the fact that you can fill out the general information form online and don't have to fumble at the office for the requested information. I would not hesitate to see Dr. Soomekh again in the future. He was very thorough and professional.
He’s great and explained in detail why I was having the issues I was having! It’s like I was back in college in my favorite class!!
Efficient, professional, great bedside manner, friendly staff, and he identified and fixed my problem in two minutes. He will definitely be my family's go-to podiatrist.
Was direct with his findings. Very knowledgeable and thought outside the box to come up with a diagnosis.
Dr. Soomekh has always been pleasant, informative, caring and patient. I never leave having questions, no matter what my foot issue is at that time. So happy to have found him as a doctor and feel very comfortable in the fact he will be performing my necessary surgery.
Although going to a podiatrist isn't like going to a doctor for preventative care (i.e...I'm really only going when I have pain), at least it's nice to know I have a great doctor and staff where I am going to. It makes my necessary experience there much more pleasant. And they are absolutely great in what they do!
This was my first time visiting with Dr. Soomekh and I was very very happy with the appointment. Very professional, very thorough and very nice. The entire office staff was great! Dr. Soomekh took the time to explain my condition, steps to take and follow up. Highly recommend!
Very surprised. I was expecting a "usual" experience--lots of paperwork and not a lot of personal attention. It was just the opposite --hardly any wait, excellent service, and great advice. I hope to never need a podiatrist again, but if I do, this is where I would go!
From the front desk lady to the assistant then the doctor; everyone was so nice and efficient!
Great visit. Immediately diagnosed my pain and quickly gave me a treatment plan to correct the issue.
David is an outstanding clinician, diagnostician, and surgeon. I am a demanding, and arguably difficult patient, but David and his staff were extraordinary and accommodating. Not only did they deliver superb, compassionate care, they exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this practitioner.
Everyone is really nice. Dr. David Soomekh explains very well of my foot problems. I like the idea of having the service they have right there on the same floor. Don't have to get an x- Ray in a different department. Very please with his knowledge. I highly recommend Dr David Soomekh.
Dr. Soomekh was very thorough in explaining my diagnosis and treatment options. His staff was very courteous and professional.
He was very knowledgable and was not pushy about any treatment. He did seem a bit rushed and it is unfortunate that a lot of his treatment options are not covered by insurance.
My experience with Dr. Soomekh was that of a caring professional, knowledgeable and someone who is interested in feedback from the patient. Whether your physical issue(s) be a simple matter or more complicated, I would highly recommend that Dr. Soomekh be your doctor of choice.
Such a warm and professional practice. The staff was so helpful and Dr. Soomekh is incredibly knowledgeable and gentle. I can trust his diagnosis is on point and tailored specifically to me and my body. What an amazing office!
Smart, kind, and takes his time. Was recommended to me by 3 people I trust, all from different circles! After seeing a doctor who poorly treated me, I was left with pain for months. Dr. Soomekh explained everything and made sense. I have confidence he will guide me into healing! Thank you Doc.
This office got me a cupcake for my birthday, when I had to come in for a procedure, and I get friendly holiday messages from them. :) Loved the desk staff, the doctor, the nurse - EXCELLENT practice.
Dr. Soomekh was one of the best doctors I've had in a long time. He seemed concerned for me, explained to me something that other doctors never have and didn't try to diagnose me with something just to diagnose me, unlike most doctors I've had. He is wonderful. Highly recommended.
Great experience! Easy to book, prompt and our trois reception, Dr was very knowledgable and gave options. Office was
Dr. Soomekh gave me ample time and explanation. His entire staff was equally as awesome. Highly recommend him.
It was very informative and helpful.
I never go to doctors, and try to avoid them at all costs, but THIS was a great experience. Clean, efficient, friendly, knowledgeable, well-staffed, comfortable, and courteous. Most importantly they are very happy to educate the patient with as much info as they need/request.
An hour before my set appointment time I was required to deal with an urgent issue at home. When I called and spoke to Athena about this she quickly pushed my appointment time by 1 hour!! The text and email reminders and the ability to schedule an appointment online really makes the process efficient. Love that. Athena and Mark and Dr. Soomekh always make me feel Im important to them and that my time matters!! I haven't been to a Healthcare practitioner with this attitude and perspective since, well never in Los Angeles!!!
Very thorough and helpful visit!! Beautiful clean office with advanced technology.
hes very nice. i think i could have avoided a few appointments (saved money) if we went straight to getting an MRI. the office is nice and the doctor is great. Im looking for a second opinion before i agree to any further treatment. I have ankle pain and we tried quite a few things and im not better.
A fantastic experience. A very skilled and professional doctor and a great office experience - I felt like I was at a spa!
Very professional and knowledgeable. Explained everything very thoroughly. I love how modern the office is, with the online appointments and forms.
He and his staff were quite wonderful! They made me feel very comfortable in that bright beautiful office. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a doctor that's kind, to the point, and very informative! It felt good knowing my foot was gonna be just fine!
Very nice and professional. Took time to explain everything to me so I understand what was wrong.
I'm always a bit nervous going to a new doctor but Dr. Soomekh was extremely friendly and took time to explain what was going on. After a brief discussion, a course of action was determined and he completed the procedure within about 20 minutes. I highly recommend Dr. Soomekh and his office.
Dr. Soomekh is great, knowledgeable and good at explaining things. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Dr. Soomekh was super professional, personable and attentive. Great operation. I would definitely see him again.
I felt good knowing I'm in good hands even though this was my first time at their office.
Dr. Soomekh and his staff were fantastic - very friendly and professional. I was seen right away and got a clear explanation of what was causing my pain and the steps I needed to take to treat it. I highly recommend Dr. Soomekh.
All around excellent. Building and office very nice, new patient paperwork easier than most, staff warm, seen right away. Dr Soomekh personable, professional, explained everything fully, presented options, took time for all my questions, provided immediate relief and a good plan for eventual near term recovery. Highly recommend.
Exceptional. First visit with him and was 100% confident in his expertise
Another wonderful office team and healthcare professional. I was able to park on the next street for free (on Bedford); the receptionist was pleasant and efficient (and willing to call my insurance to give me an idea of my co-pay for treatment); the assistant was down-to-earth, friendly, and checked on me TWICE to see if he could get me a water, and Doctor Soomekh was clear, warm, and quick in treating a wart on my foot. I will be happy to return for a follow-up in a few weeks!
