I had such a fantastic and comprehensive visit and also was prescribed orthotics to replace my old ones. Dr. Van noticed different aspects of my feet that another doctor never told me before. I recommend his straightforward approach and very efficient.

Very informative, super friendly, and very easy to speak with. He has clear views (in my case, a massive need to stretch, and ideally see a PT, to resolve my feet - and probably knee - pain), and he explains clearlywhat is happening and why. Most importantly, he was very open to all of my questions, and even encouraged me to email if I have any more. No sense at all of being rushed. I will definitely go back to Dr. Van if I have any further feet issues, with pleasure.

I have gone to a few podiatrists before finding Doctor Van on zocdoc. All the podiatrists were unhelpful and did not address the pain that I have been feeling in my feet. Doctor Van explained the core issues of what iscausing the pain, right away. He was profiessional, direct and gave the impression the he genuinely cared. He seems like a very hip, knowledgeable, relatable individual. I highly recommend seeing Doctor Van if you need a podiatrist.

I'm very impressed with Dr. Jimmy Van! He is extremely knowledgeable, kind, down-to-earth and professional. I have some neuromas in my toes he is treating which require steroid injections. I was blown away by how gentle Dr. Van was. I receiveda shot in my foot years ago which was an incredibly painful, horrendous experience. I braced myself for the worst, but he assured me I'd be okay. His gentle injection was a world of difference from the horror of my first experience. I have 2 more treatments left and I'm actually looking forward to getting these other shots in my foot. I'm already feeling better after one! Thanks, Dr Van for being amazing!

I cannot say that I would recommend Dr Van. Whilst some may like a laid back attitude, I personally prefer a more systematic thorough approach with doctors. Also no x-ray machine on site. Pros are quick waiting time and after 5pmappointments available, will check insurance claims for you. But I have since seen much more thorough podiatrists that I would likely recommend above Dr Van. Also I do not like that when I was asking him simple qs over email about specifics of recovery times which in the appointment he had played off as being back on your feet immediately, he tried to make me schedule another appointment to speak about. I feel like he could have just answered those questions over email but was just trying to get more money for another consultation (which would also have wasted my time too).

Dr. Van has been amazing with great bedside manners. I've been going to him for almost a year and he's very straight forward with what he tells you. It's hard to find great podiatrist when you're limited base on your insuranceand I haven't been to such a great doctor like him for a while. I definitely recommend him.

Dr Jimmy Van is AMAAAAZE BALLS!!!! Honestly, he’s so friendly, kind, and down to earth. He’s also a really great podiatrist and will tell you the real scoop right away but in a nice and easy to understand way. Honestly, he’sgood people and a great doctor. I wish I lived nearer to Chinatown so I could fake injure my foot on the daily and go in to get it worked on regularly! Dr Jimmy worked as a part of a lot of people working on my joint and tendon problems and he’s been really helpful to me and also to the other doctors who’ve called him up and he’s available and helpful. One of my fave doctors EVER!!!!

- I waited 45 minutes. - I explained what happened. - He gave me the treatment right away. - I felt better right away. - I asked, "What do I do to avoid this in the future?" - He said, "There'snothing you can do." - Then he said, " You know, humans shouldn't be living past 40 anyway." - Gee, how compassionate. Sorry this old guy bothered you. - He spent exactly 2 minutes listening to me. - 1 minute giving the treatment. - Another minute answering questions. - Another minute processing my credit card. - And it was over.

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Van. I broke my ankle on a Saturday, saw him that Monday. When I freaked out and started crying he comforted me. He helped me find a good, affordable place for x-rays whenwe found out my stupid insurance didn’t cover them. He gave me real advice on buying a boot and a knee scooter, instead of making me buy one through his office. And he’s funny! I saw him for a few follow ups and his great bedside manner continued. I never waited to see him. We emailed back and forth a bit, he always got back to me really quickly. I’m going to continue to go to him and highly recommend him to everyone!
