Great!! She was so professional, yet so down to earth and polite. Made me feel at ease on first visit with her. I explain my problem and right away knew what I needed, and made sure that I left feeling alittle better, and with a future treatment plan to heal me quickly. Will recommended to my fellow officers.

I was really pleased after my first visit with Dr. Schikman. I came for a 2nd opinion, as my injury has not healed after 1 year. She made me feel hopeful and provided me with practical advice and some relief (forthe first time!). I have followed her advice for 2 weeks and am ecstatic to say that I am starting to feel better. I really appreciated her positivity and assurance that this will get better (my other doctor seemed to be at a loss for next steps and didn't even really seem interested in my progress). Thank you!!! Highly recommend :)

It was a good thing as Ifound out about more serious underlying health issues. She takes an active interest in her patients. I would highly recommend her.

Excellent doctor makes you feel very comfortable. Her secretary, however, made me want to gouge my eyes out. I don't think I have ever spoken with someone more inept in my life. Oh, and they only take cash which unfortunately I was never told prior to my appointment.

Dr. Lana Schikman is a highly professional podiatrist who is extremely knowledgeable in her task as a generous, friendly and caring doctor for her patients. During my visit she was able to assist me with my fractured foot by performing ultrasound, and applying gypsum on my foot, very deliberately. she makes you feel very comfortable, important, and treats you as a special patient who is concerned about your health. She gave me helpful advises upon the treatment and took time to explain everything in detail and clarify for me any concerns and questions that I had. Dr. Lana Schikman is an amazing doctor and I appreciate her assistance she aided me very well and I will definitely be looking forward to future visits. Thank-you

Doctor Lana helped me immediately. I had throbbing pain in my toe due to an infection. I thought it will never go away. I received local anesthesia and my nail was removed in a matter of two minutes. The procedure wasfast! Dr was friendly, all smiles and gave a lot of encouragement. I got my prescription and left, but I will be back to the same doctor if I ever need a podiatrist .

I was very pleased with Dr. Schickman. She was friendly and professional. Thorough in reviewing both my foot issue and my history with it. Confirmed my plantar fasciitis diagnosis with an ultrasound and then set out a treatment plan that accommodatesmy upcoming travel plans. Have a follow up scheduled to see where to go from here.

I came to Dr. Lana, because I had pain in my heel for a long time. I was seen by other doctors as well. They gave me pain relievers, but they were not addressing the problem. Dr. Lana got me todo sonogram right away, and I had an injection. Wow, i just wish i would have come earlier. The pain has diminished. i liked the fact that the sonogram was right there at her office. She treated me like a friend. I just wish other podiatrists were like her.

I choose to see Dr. Lana because I had an emergency with my knee being swollen and my foot having pain. I needed to some medication for the swelling to go down and eventually help me to walk better. When Ifirst walked in to her office she was polite. She gave me advice on what I needed to do. However, I thought she was rude when she told me that I had like the worst insurance and that they weren't gonna pay her good. She asked me if I had another insurance. I told her yes until a certain time. She insisted I gave her that one because the will pay her better. I just think that as a professional who did take my original insurance should not be nasty about it. It was out of her place to say so. If ANYTHING DONT ACCEPT INSURANCES THAT YOUR NOT WILLING TO WORK WITH. BOTTOM LINE. YOUR HERE TO SERVE AND NOT JUDGE.
