***PLEASE NOTE: New patients: you must book an appointment with Elliot Diamond, DPM and not Dr. Diamond/Medical Assistant.*** Existing patients: please book through Dr. Diamond/Medical Assistant. Thank you! Dr. Elliot Diamond has been a podiatrist for more than thirty years, blending complementary medicine strategies with podiatric concepts. His interest in Oriental Medicine, acupuncture and pain management were initially catalyzed as a graduate student at Penn State University. “My initial interest in podiatry began in 1974 when I was a graduate student in the Department of Health and Physical Education. While I was working on my Master’s Thesis, a podiatric medicine academy hired me to research and publish a textbook on muscle testing and corrective medicine for the Lower Extremity titled: “A Podiatric Resource Guide for Preventative and Rehabilitative Foot and Leg Care”, Futura Publishing Company, 1976. Once this textbook was published, I decided to attend the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine (then named the Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine). My interest in acupuncture stemmed from my Master’s Thesis on Transcendental Medicine/Yoga and its relationship to psychological components and drug attitude and behavior. I achieved an Oriental Doctor Degree and have integrated acupuncture in my podiatry practice since 1983.” Due to my extensive training in both the USA and Japan, my interest in pain and sports medicine has a universal approach. Non-surgical techniques for “hard to heal” podiatric conditions are emphasized in our practice, but when surgery is required, we'll work with you to find the best option. *ZocDoc does not always show all open appointments.

Dr Diamond and his staff take a lot of time to make sure you understand what they are telling you. Overall a great experience!
This is good dr I recommend,you try you like it
After visiting two other podiatrists with foot pain associated with running, I finally found a place where my symptoms were taken seriously and someone spent more than 10 minutes with me. Dr. Diamond and his staff were just who I was looking for - compassionate people with time to listen to my concerns and actual solutions. After just one visit (of a planned four or so), my foot is feeling somewhat better and I'm excited for my next visit.
The office is whacky looking. And yet I learned more about my feet in one visit than many expensive visits to the fancy foot guys in town. For the first time in a long time I feel hopeful about getting my foot issue resolved.
It was creepy. Really. The decor was New-Age-grunge, the staff ranged from kinda checked out and just very clearly not wanting to be there to outright contentious and condescending (mostly to the older patients that were having trouble trying to navigate their see-we're-hip-ipad-check-in). They don't take credit cards for either in-office payment or follow-up invoices and push aggressively to add treatments that will not be covered by insurance that, again, must be paid in cash (or check). I'm really baffled by all the 5 star reviews. I went twice and felt dirty (physically and mentally) so I canceled the 3rd. Dr. Diamond has got a good list of bonafides and I know podiatry isn't quackery, but this office doesn't make a very strong case for it.
This was an excellent visit.
Very professional, but laid back and casual. Just the way I like it. Everyone was awesome. Would highly recommend to everyone who needs their services. ????????????????????
great doc, smart and had the equipment needed to diagnose.
Dr Diamond was awesome in every way. His knowledge speaks volumes and how you can manipulate your foot with his taping is amazing to see the results. He is on the way to providing my 82 mother on the path to wellness!
This was my first visit to see a podiatrist. I didn't know what to expect but my encounter was more then I expected. The place and people there was Very polite and they made it comfortable. The staff was so friendly and kind. I would recommend this location to my friends and family. The doctor was very detailed and explained everything thoroughly.
I am not a huge fan of visiting the doctor but Dr. Diamond and his entire staff made my appointment easy. He and his staff identified my problem quickly and made suggestions for a treatment program that avoided prescriptions or shots. I was thrilled with the options provided and can already see how this treatment program will help improve my problem. Love the early hours so that I can come in for my follow-up visits without missing work!
Great experience. Doctor identified and solved my concern.
Wow!!!!! The best Dr visit I had ever!!! From the receptionist to the other Drs and assistants. Low key, professional, and 150% care. I brought my 85 year old Mother ( was a Nurse) who has been to so many other podiatrist to address her feet and never did they ever address her balance. She always loved to walk and is in incredibily great health but had been losing her Umph bc her feet hurt, which leads to her back aching and her balance was off. She has been unsteady for the past few years and would not really admit it. After our first visit we walked half mile to dinner and it was so liberating for her. Thank You all At Dr. Diamonds office and Dr. Diamond himself. He truly cares and takes the time to explain why this occuring. I could not believe the difference I saw in my Mother after one visit. I look forward to our next visit. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
This is really a one of a kind practice. You will not be disappointed !
I felt as if I had been "heard" and I liked that he had a plan right away. His staff if informative, pleasant and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dr. Diamond if you have any foot issue.
First time seeing a Podiatrist, Dr. Diamond and his staff are uber professional and polite. Dr. Diamond has such a dynamic personality, answered all of my questions and went the extra mile to ensure I was comfortable and understood his diagnosis.
Staff were courteous and friendly. Dr. Diamond is thorough.
Dr. diamond is an expert and very thorough! He even called to follow up to make sure that I heal well. I highly recommend him.
First appointment, will wait and see how it goes. But first impression was very good.
Personable, friendly, informing, patient, professional and hope filled. Dr. Diamond laid out a plan to correct my problem. I highly recommend him.
He was very caring and informational and took his time with me to explain everything in detail
I think he was friendly and very knowledgeable.
Amazing! Have already recommended him to three new people!
This was first off a series of visits, so cannot respond yet to this wuestion
Wish I had found he and his staff months ago!
Not the most formal office, (more holistic, which I prefer) but everyone in there is very knowledgeable and very nice. Dr. Diamond took care of my toe issue in one visit, unlike most doctors who would draw this out to at least 2 visits. Also they didn't try and push a bunch of products on me. Very pleasant visit, especially considering I had impatient surgery.
We learned more about what was wrong with my daughter's foot in two hours than in ten months of other appts and testing. His knowledge and experience is immediately evident!
Very professional and competent. This was my first visit and I am hopeful that Dr. Diamond and his staff will help my feet feel better!
It was a wonderful visit. I will see him again on Feb 2nd.
Dr. D is amazing as a doctor and a person when you leave you feel like you made a best new friend and he knows his profession well
This was my first appointment with Dr. Diamond, and I was seen within the first 5 minutes. I was impressed by the thorough exam and subsequent treatment. However, it may take some time for me to get used to the non-traditional office and treatment area set up.
Very knowledgable and feel like we will get my foot where it needs to be in no time
I think he is most professional and honest .He did not "push" products or additional visits, as another foot doctor that I had visited. His staff is very pleasent, efficient and curtious. I can truly recommend him highly. BERNIE (HBC)
His office is open and kind and he uses different techniques from anything I've ever seen. I have great hope that he'll be able to help me.
All of the staff was very knowledgeable and informative. Dr. Diamond was very thorough in explaining my condition, treatment modalities, and next steps. Dr. Diamond was very patient and took ample time to fully explain the logistics of my problem and how we can treat it. I would highly recommend this practice for anyone seeking a podiatrist.
It will require several visits but I definitely feel I have found the right doctor with the right approach to my problem
It's early in a process, but I'm hoping for great results.
Dr Diamond and staff were professional, cordial and explain everything to me during the examination and treatment. The massage chairs are a bonus.
Overall pretty good, very knowledgeable, friendly encounter. All information was given in explicit detail. Treatment plan fully discussed
It was a very pleasant experience. Everyone was super friendly and every step (no pun intended) was explained, which I value greatly. I just wish they would add a pedicure station,
Very attentive team of professional podiatrists. Like the idea of holistic treatment. Seemed to be customized to my needs.
Office was super busy and I was a first time patient. Visit lasted 3 hours. Treated well, hoping for improving with my ankle.
Really friendly surgery. The professionals were all professional and highly amenable!
I've seen several other doctors regarding my foot problem without relief, but after the first visit with Dr. Diamond, it's improving. Dr. Diamond used several assessment tools (ie., gait analysis) to diagnose my problem and set forth a several-visit treatment plan that makes sense. I am optimistic that I will be able to bike and hike again without pain.
Always the best. Thank you Pecki
Not your usual foot doctor. Very interesting. Glad I found him.
i had an excellent experience. staff was friendly, dr. diamond was highly skilled and knowledgable.
Dr Diamond was knowledgable and kind He has a holistic approach which was very helpful Only drawback was the wait time which was over two hours
I was coming in for an initial evaluation and arrived 10 minutes early to allow for paperwork time. I work in a healthcare office and patients are seen at the time of their appointment, however I had to wait outside because the doors were locked. I was not able to start my paper work until after my scheduled appointment time. I felt like I was being an inconvenience because I needed to get to work, which is why I scheduled my appointment so early. The information provided was very helpful and interesting, but I was disappointed in the way I was treated because I had a time restraint after being taken back almost 30 minutes later than my scheduled time.
Very complete and everything explained thoroughly and clearly.
I felt Dr. Diamond was not listening to one word I said. It's like an assembly line in there, and he did not hear one word I said about how my foot was injured, which was important. He said "lots of people are born with this problem and I think I can make it better." It was not something I was born with, it was the result of a recent injury. There were other things I tried to tell him but he was just pushing bodies through.
I was impressed with the casual yet efficient, attentive and friendly atmosphere of the office. Having visited several other podiatrists with disappointing results, Dr. Diamond gave me renewed hope that solutions to my foot problems are within reach.
He knows what he's talking about and I love how he gives you alternative options and works with you- rather than operating like most other doctors want to do for my bunion condition.
EXCELLENT!!!!... THERE IS HOPE!!!! Friendly, clinically excellent care team. Highly recommended. Don't go to Rothman podiatry for a 5 min eval and done....money rules..next patient... Go to Dr. Diamond...he and his team spent @ least an hour w/ me.... True Patient Centered Care. THANKS! peter m. *
The staff and Dr. Diamond made me feel welcome and they were attentive. I'm looking forward to seeing the way they can help my foot problems and feel better.
He was very professional and very helpful already recommended him to a. Co worker
I was very impressed with Dr. Diamond and his entire staff. They were friendly, thorough and explained my situation to me instead of just telling me the end result. Dr. Diamond actually spent a lot of time with me, answered all of my questions and never made me feel stupid - or rushed. I also really liked that in addition to his expertise, he teaches younger doctors and med students. And this was just my first visit!
Wow! There is hope for working feet into my old age, thanks to Dr Diamond. I am so glad I finally got in to see him.
Very zen and holistic approach
Professional and friendly from check in through Dr. visit. I know where to go for any podiatry issues.
It was awesome. Friendly staff and office was welcoming which made me very comfortable. My first evaluation, treatment and discussion of plan for treatment has me feeling hopeful and pleased. I have faith Dr. Diamond was a wise decision.
Dr. Diamond was awesome! He was very nice and the front desk staff was very warm and welcoming. He gave me a little background info on his travels which was very interesting to listen about. He got straight to the root of my toe issue and treated me right away. I would definitely recommend others to see him and will be returning.
Dr. Elliott Diamond is amazing. I went to two other podiatrist that said nothing could be done with my foot issue. He took his time to explain where and why I was having pain. He did various therapies and then wrapped my foot. Feels better already. Highly recommend!!
Dr. Diamond's explanation of my problems was very clear. His staff were also very good. It's hard to tell much after just 1 visit, but I was pleased with my experience today.
The staff and doctor were the warmest, friendliest people I have ever dealt with in healthcare! Usually the doctors/nurses/receptionists are pretty cold and matter of fact but everyone here was quiet lovely. The treatments are effective, gentle and holistic. I hobbled in in pain, but sauntered out lightly on my feet.
I really liked the doctor's approach to my problem. Diagnosis via gait tracking was very informative, and the recommended treatment program of using taping, traction, exercises, and possibly orthotics to realign my feet rather than short-term fixes like cortisone injections or surgery makes a lot of sense to me. Also, office staff were friendly, efficient, and professional, and there was no wait to be seen.
Professional, informative, and friendly. Everything you want in a doctor.
My feet are happier already!!! thank you, bc
I wish I would have seen Dr Diamond years ago, I am very optimistic that my foot issues can be resolved with continued treatment by Dr. Diamond and his team.
The doctor was recommended to be by a member of a dance company of whose members he has treated for over a decade. His thoroughness astonished me. I had just been released from a major Orthopedic institution, saying they could find nothing wrong, though my foot pain was so bad at times that I could hardly walk. Here the pain was pinpointed, shown to me in a manner I was able to see and understand, explained and my feet wrapped in a manner unlike the previous methods and I walked all day without pain. I could not believe it. I'm sold.
Very informative and pleasant!
I really enjoyed the experience. All of the personnel worked together as a team. The atmosphere was very pleasant, and enjoyable.
Extremely knowledgeable. Very updated information gathering. Logically explained problem to me. Told me about action plan. Office spotless. Staff wonderful kind and professional.
The office was comfortable and the staff behaved professionally.The only thing is that they ask if paperwork was sent (not just me)and in most cases it wasn't. So you spend another 30 minutes filling out paperwork about your medical history, insurance, HEPA, etc.,.. Not cool since parking in this area is metered( strictly enforced) or garage parking only and you may end up spending 2-3 hours in his office . First time patients (myself included) love to know these things ahead of time. People can also fill out these forms online to save time or the old fashioned way by mail.
This was my first visit to Dr. Elliot Diamond's office and I was very pleased. He was pleasant, friendly, and professional at all times. He presented possible causes for my problems that other podiatrists never mentioned and discussed a possible approach that could be tried to alleviate my pain. X rays and film were used to enhance the explanation of the problems which were very helpful. The staff was friendly and helpful as well. Over all my visit could be given a 5 star rating.
Dr. Diamond's unique and holistic approach was a breath of fresh air. His assessment of gait and foot mechanics -- instead of just looking for symptom-relief -- was something that no other podiatrist had ever done with me. I have already gotten some pain relief from the treatment administered on the first visit, and I look forward to continuing with the regimen.
Very knowledgable doc. Knows how to talk using a patient's vocabulary as opposed to a doctor's vocabulary
Excellent holistic approach to foot care. Make sure you allow at least 2 hours for initial appointment
He seems happy to help his patients and passionate about his profession.
Dr. Diamond and his entire staff was receptively welcoming and truly made me feel like I was their top priority. I enjoyed the visit so much, I'll be recommending him to my friends and associates that have foot issues.
Staff was very courteous. I was seen promptly. Very thourough evaluation and explanation of treatment options. Dr. Diamond very down to earth, very knowledgeable, explained things in detail.
This was the first time that anyone accurately diagnosed what was going on with my feet and had solutions!!!!!
Friendly, honest, courteous.
I was pleased with Dr. Diamond . I felt better after the 1st visit. I believe the Doctor is going to put me on the road to recovery.
Very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, explains the problem well,
Fabulous! Thorough and thoughtful. Explained the situation well to me and the process for correction. Entire office staff is excellent.
Love, love, love!!!
It was most helpful and illuminating.
Impressed with the doc, the staff, the hardware and his approach to my problems. It's my 1st visit -- too soon to give an A grade. But good start.
Dr. Diamond patiently worked through my strange foot and ankle pain and for the first time in a year, I am pain free! I am thrilled with his approach to healing and his amazing staff. Definitely the best place to go for your feet.
The doctor was confident he could help me with the pain and the use of my right foot. I left feeling better physically and mentally.
Friendly, efficient, knowledgeable - Dr. Diamond and staff. Always a pleasant visit and i come home satisfied.
He is one of the best! Amazing staff too!
I have been suffering with my condition for several years now and this is the first time I am confident I found a doctor who is moving in the right direction with my treatment!
The staff at Dr. DIamond's office are very efficient and friendly. The doctor who did my intake and initial was very thorough and explained what she was doing and why in a way I could understand; she took the time to answer my questions. When I saw Dr. Diamond, I was surprised he knew more about me than I expected just from the screening that was done during my intake! He gave me my screening results to give to my chiropractor so they can work together on my issues since I do not live in Philadelphia. Dr. Diamond taped my feet and I can now feel my toes when I walk! Thank you very much!
Dr. Diamond is a caring, knowledable doc....however, bring something to occupy yourself...there was a long wait to be seen.
Great office staff! Dr. Diamond is professional and knowledgeable!
Excellent experience, very knowledgeable. Includes range of treatments - acupuncture, electric stim, exercise as well as x-ray, etc. Very calm manner. Today's wait was a little longer than usual, generally it is less than 30 minutes, and sometimes right away.
Very Skilled/Highly competent and i like all the High Tech computer assessment equipment that analyses how you walk ! I gotta learn to WALK BETTER , that's for sure!
Immediately felt that I was in the right place to address my issues. Dr. connected with me personally, Pilates reference, and professionally, instantly familiar with my condition and previous surgery. Was very clear about what the visit would entail and then followed up specifically. Diagnosis, treatment, expectations. All was friendly, clear and concise. Great experience
This was the best podiatrist experience I've ever had. Everyone from the folks in the front office right up to Dr. Diamond was respectful, efficient and effective.
Loved it - know I am in excellent car!
This is a busy office with dancers, athletes and regular people receiving state of the art treatment. They have a unique approach which combines traditional modalities, e.g. acupuncture, with use of the latest technologies. Dr. Diamond doesn't stop at just your foot, but has a holistic approach that looks at the whole person to see what contributes to your foot problem and how best to heal you so that you can avoid these problems, (or others), in the future. I think this approach is unique and would be hard to find others doing this level of work.
Most thorough visit I have ever had with any doctor. Left after first visit with relief from pain I was experiencing. Fully intend to keep seeing Dr. Diamond, and would highly recommend him to family and friends.
Once again - Excellent experience with Dr. Diamond's office. Thorough and attentive treatment from Dr. Diamond and his staff. And my foot is starting to feel better!
I highly recommend Dr. Diamond and his team if you use your feet a lot — walking, running, hiking, dancing, etc. — and have pain or problems and want to explore a creative, customer-centric approach to resolving them. Dr. Diamond uses a range of modalities — stretching and exercises to electric stimulation and acupuncture and custom orthotics — that give your feet a spa treatment at the same time you're proactively overcoming the source of pain and getting back out there with happy feet. I cannot recommend Dr. Diamond more highly.
Dr. Diamond provides thorough, holistic, expert care for my foot issues (plantar fasciitis). I especially appreciate his use of acupuncture as part of my treatment plan. His staff are courteous, professional, knowledgeable. They have given me numerous exercises I can do to help my recovery on top of the treatments they provide there in the office. I also really like the openness of the treatment area. I choose to go to Dr. Diamond even though my insurance does not fully cover the expenses. I would rather pay more to get the treatment he offers.
Friendly, professional, and definitely knowledgeable. I had gone to a few other podiatrists before for other issues, and he understood the pathology of how all my issues related to each other -- hence, explained how they all interplay, and proposed a solution to resolve the pain. Thank you!
