Incredible focus on me, more so than any of the 4 doctors I’ve seen about this same issue over the last3 years! I think she really figured some things about how I walk that can help me actually heal from plantar fasciitis. Thank you!!

Dr. Alani was fantastic! She could have very easily quickly diagnosed and recommended treatment for the common issue I came to see her for and then sent me on my way. Instead, she took the time while examing me to ask questions and then listen to my responses. In doing so she identified other underlying issues I have that may affect my quality of life down the road and educated me on what I can be doing now to help with that. Her staff was also terrific! Everyone was both friendly and very communicative.

Dr. Alani was one of the best physicians I have ever been a patient of. She has great bedside manner, articulates in laymen’s terms what you’re medically experiencing, and answers your questions both thoroughly and in a non judgmental tone which can be missing in patient interactions. I had an amazing experience like many reviewers before me and I look forward to completing my treatment in her care.

Dr. Farah Alani and her team are absolutely amazing! When you enter the office, you are warmly greeted by her assistant Jackie and sent in to see the doctor with little to no wait time. I came in to see Dr. Alani because I had plantar fasciitis and came to the office over the course of several months for physical therapy (I was worried about being able to dance (without pain) at my then upcoming wedding). Over the course of a few months, with the doctor's help, exercises, and recommendations, my plantar fasciitis got better and I was able to dance at my wedding! It is clear that Dr. Alani truly cares about her patients and there well being. She is amazingly friendly and personable. During each visit, she checks in with you, takes her time to chat with you about how you are feeling (doesn't throw you out of her office in 5 minutes like most), and treats you like an individual. I would highly recommend this provider and will be going back myself in a few weeks!

Fantastic doctor. Dr. Alani takes time to explain the cause of any pain or reason for injury. Wholesome approach to the treatment i.e. tape, electro-stimulation, stretches, posture discussion, work environment consideration and shoe inserts. Really throughout examination. Onsite X-ray machine. The location is extremely convenient and the availability optimal for lunchtime or after work visit. My number 1 choice for any foot related pain.

After filling out the necessary forms there was little to no wait time for before I was seen by Dr. Alani. Although my visit was only for a foot consultation, Dr. Alani attended to me as if i was her patience for many years. I highly recommend Dr. Alani + staff. A+
