Dr. Barkoff is an excellent physician who places you at ease while treating your condition.
My visit with Dr. Barkoff was extremely pleasant from the moment I walked in. The staff was very friendly and it did not take long for Dr. Barkoff to see me. He made me feel very comfortable with the procedure and took the time to go over my recovery. He was extremely knowledgable and I definitely reccomend him.
Clear and Informed straight forward Pleasant manner and suggested a reasonable plan of action
Dr. Barkoff was terrific. He gave me helpful advice about how to address my issues (involving foot pain), gave me some treatment on the spot that greatly helped alleviate the pain right away, and helped me make a plan for things-to-do moving forward. I'd highly recommend him!
Very thorough and professional all the way.
I was a nervous wreck as this was my first Podiatry exam and not knowing what to expect on top of knowing I neglected this problem for WAY TOO LONG. I was met with a warm greeting at the front desk and lead into the exam room. As I sat down Dr. Barkoff walked in with a genuine smile and introduced himself and then we had a discussion while he was doing his exam. My anxiety was all for nothing! Dr. Barkoff was soothing, knowledgeable, Kind, professional and understanding. I applaud this man for creating a Healthcare environment that is thorough while maintaining care and not falling into the Healthcare business model of turning patients into customers. Without hesitation I would recommend Dr. Barkoff to anyone seeking a Podiatrist, I truly can not say enough about my personal experience .... My Feet are HAPPY too!
Dr.Barkoff was incredibly kind and fantastic with my son. My son was so happy and simply loved him! Dr.Barkoff is a patient and extremely professional doctor. I cannot recommend him enough!!

Every one has been very nice each time I have been there ,no problem scheduling appoints. , seen promptly .Dr Barkoff has always listened carefully to my problems and concerns about my foot care and has also been very helpful in trying to assist me ..He is a very nice man ,patient and concerned for the patient !

Funny, experienced, honest and conservative with treatment. Thank you!
Quick and painless. 5 minute wait. Office staff friendly. Dr Barkoff was friendly, helpful and quick. Wish every doctor was like this.
I really enjoyed my visit with Dr.Barkoff - he is kind, patient and a top notch professional. You will immediately feel comfortable with his easy going personality and the willingness to answer any questions you may have. I highly recommend him so give him a try!
Pleasant - he was very informative.
Great visit, was seen right away and all my issues were resolved.
Both very knowledgeable and helpful. Provided holistic guidance to my issue, including exercise while convalescing and therapeutic steps I can take on my own. I walked out feeling empowered and uplifted.
Fast, never got back to me about my insurance accepting a certain procedure, rude staff
He is an excellent doctor. I would definitely recommend him and use him again if i needed a podiarist.
Very professional staff. I arrived about 10 minutes before my appointment time with the required insurance paperwork filled out. The staff was very professional and had me ready to be seen by Dr. Barkoff right away. Rather than have me wait, they finished processing my paperwork as I was being seen by the doctor. Everything about the visit was great. Dr. Barkoff answered my questions clearly and in terms I understood. No one likes having to see a doctor, but this was painless.
He's really sweet. I liked him a lot and I'd see him again if anything pops up.
Helped me through three instances of foot problems related to diabetes...life saver!
This was my first visit. Dr. Barkoff was friendly and pleasant. He took care of my problem and offered suggestions to me. It was a great 1st visit and I have already recommended him to 2 others.
The office was well staffed, the wait was very short and Doctor Barkoff put me at ease immediately upon greeting me. His assessment of my ailment was very reassuring and helpful. I recommend him highly.
Super friendly office with no wait!! Dr Barkoff has a great skill set. I would highly recommend his practice.
Dr. Barkoff is great. I was able to articulate each my concerns and he responded very specifically to each and together, we made a plan for my feet to feel better.
Dr. Barkoff and his staff are great. I was in so much discomfort and after seeing Dr. Barkoff only a few hours ago I already feel better. Simply amazing.
Dr. Barkoff and his staff are terrific! Sometimes I get to the office early and if possible they take me right in. Had bunion surgery and it was not painful, as I had anticipated. What I like about Dr. Barkoff is that is he direct, to the point, and listens to you. His staff is sooooo nice and helpful!! This is very important to me. I love that I can make my appointment with Zocdoc!
He fixed a chronic issue I'd been having for a year. Very nice guy, sensitive to price sensitivities (I was uninsured), and only recommended what was necessary. Beyond excellent experience.
Awesome. Professional personable and honest
Dr Barkoff is great! He is kind, gentle and competent. He has a great bedside manner with my 12 year old son.
He was really nice and listened what I had to say.
Overall disappointed with experience. Had some initial work done and Dr. Barkoff told me his team would reach back out with follow-up within a few days. I never heard back. When I reached out to them it seemed like no one had any idea there was expected follow up. I'm moving on to another practice.
Was convenient, extremely friendly and painless...a home run!
It was a quick check in. Everyone was professional and courteous. Doc was great and had a nice attitude. Would definitely keep him for future reference.
He was professional, did not push extra procedures, told me to call immediately if his work did not give relief. Gentle, pain free.
I am Diabetic and was referred to Dr. Barkoff by my general practitioner. Dr. Barkoff prevented a serious infection and possible hospital stay in my left foot by catching it early.
Excellent fixed my serious ingrown toenail in one visit and a follow up checked out fine. Very nice doctor with a super great staff very happy to recommend
Always a great experience. Friendly and attentive staff. Dr Barkoff is a great doctor with a great team. What more could you ask for?
Excellent, as usual!
It hink I waited about 40 minutes tops ..including filling out forms..first visit..I liked him, he was straightforward and very pleasant. I know that podiatrists tend to recommend inserts to pretty much everyone and perhaps they are the right recommendation for many people and in my case. I will probably get them, and I would recommend him.
Dr. Barkoff is great. Wonderful bedside manner and very knowledgeable. He has treated my entire family for years.
This was my first visit to the office. Front desk was friendly, welcoming, and very efficient. The office was busy but I was seen promptly. Dr. Barkoff listened to my concerns and examined my feet. He was very personable and easy to talk to. He explained my condition to me clearly and relieved my pain right away. I highly recommend Dr. Barkoff and only wish I had gone in sooner. Now I know where to go!
Dr. Barkoff listened to my concerns, was incredibly friendly, and extremely helpful. He answered all of my questions honestly, and with humor.
Everything went well. The staff was very efficient, and Dr. Barkoff was very friendly and thorough. I would definitely recommend him.
Once again, Dr. Barkoff delivered A++++++++ service to my 88 year old Dad! Dr. Barkoff and his staff are efficient and extremely professional. Every staff member is polite and kind, especially with the elderly! Highly recommend!
Dr. Barkoff is very attentive and personable. He is thorough and patient - highly recommend!
Very nice doctor and took care of my foot issues. Very professional.
Great doctor, really clear about ailments and treatment plan. Was seen right away which is great for working professionals taking the time off for the appointment. Great bedside manner, would recommend 10/10
I was seen by Dr. Barkoff immediately after arriving and will see him tomorrow.
I was away on vacation and came down with an ingrown toe nail. Made appt. through Zocdoc for the morning after my return. I did not have to wait. My appoinment was 9 AM. Dr. Barkoff saw me at 8:55 AM. He is extremely competent, personable and has up to date equipment. Feel much better and I will be going back.
great bed side manner. nice and very personable. hoping that he fixed my problem! would recommend him!
He is disarming and informative. Seems to care about resolving problem as best possible.
He took his time to thoroughly explain his diagnosis and recommendations; highly professional as well as personable; inspired confidence.
Great ! He was wonderful ! He gave me a shot of cortisone and I hardly felt the needle .....
As always a positive experience. His staff is welcoming and friendly. And he gets the job done with a gentle touch!
I generally really enjoyed my experience at Dr. Barkoff today. The only minor setback was the office staff couldn't access my electronic forms that I filled out on ZocDoc so I had to do them again by hand. All in all though, not a big deal. They were extremely apologetic about it. The entire staff was friendly and attentive and Dr. Barkoff was incredibly polite and kind as well. I especially liked that he decided to check with my insurance before ordering a particular item. He presented me with three different scenarios on how to treat my foot. He was kind and matter-of-fact, two qualities I definitely appreciate in a doctor.
Great ! Dr.Barkoff and his staff were really amazing. Highly recommended.
He was very friendly and pleasant
As usual, my 88 year old Dad was seen immediately upon entering the office. Dr. Barkoff has an incredible bedside manner is and is so kind and caring with elderly people, especially those suffering from Dementia like my Dad! I would never take him anywhere else!
Overall, my experience was great. Great doctor and great staff.
Great office, great staff, great doc. A+
Very friendly and took the time to sit and explain everything to me. Outstanding bedside manners. He was really great. I highly recommend him.
Friendly doctor and staff. Paperwork was done online and I waited less than 3 minutes. X rays done and out in 30 minutes.
The staff were kind and efficient. The atmosphere is relaxing and the attention I received from all felt unhurried and thoughtful. Dr. Barkoff provided clear explanations and directions for my follow-up care. Ann J.
I waited an extremely long time, standing bc the waiting room was full, and after that the doctor basically told me he could do nothing for me. The appointment was extremely unhelpful. The doctor refused to treat me for the neuroma saying that because I've not recovered within 6 weeks from a sprained ankle, and because this pain happened after that, I was out of his comfort zone. He said I should be seeing an orthopedist (I mentioned I was) and I mentioned it was the orthopedist that told me to see a podiatrist. The office still charged me a co-pay despite not being helpful.
Great! Would definitely use again and recommend
Clean office, wonderful friendly staff, great doctor! He discussed my issues in a way I was able to understand, gave me viable options, and an honest opinion. He also didn't try to sell me anything! I would highly recommend this office and dr! I was seen within a few minutes upon entering this office who can ask for anything more!
I go to Dr Barkoff on a regularly. He is always professional and caring. He is knowledgeable and asks intelligible questions to determine your conditions. I have seen an improvement in my conditions from going to Dr. Barkoff.
DR.Barkoff is so kind and cares about his patients.
The guy you want looking after your feet! Knows his stuff and treats patients like people. Good heart, good skills, trustworthy and kind. Dr. Barkoff is excellent. I am not related!
Great team of docs. The practice is very busy, but they treat you like you're their only patient. A+
Dr. Barkoff and his staff took excellent care of my elderly father today. He was kind, gentle and extremely patient with him. My 88 year old father was very happy with the visit and we will definitely be going back on a regular basis. If I could, I would give Dr. Barkoff 100+++ stars!
Thorough and thoughtful
The office staff are amazing! Thank you for your great customer service.
Great DR. Great staff . Dr. Is very caring and gives the best advice.
He is an excellent and caring doctor with a warm personality.
The office is small and a bit dated, however Dr. Barkoff is highly personable and makes it worth visiting.
Friendly, relaxed while in the treatment room with me, even though he was clearly behind schedule. This was my first visit and he did some routine kind of work. I had this done before by other podiatrists and in comparison, he did an excellent job. Office staff friendly and helpful.
Good doctor that gets right to the point. Will tell you straight and doesn't sugar coat anything. Office is small and sometimes you have to wait a bit but nothing out of the ordinary. Will definitely keep Dr. Barkoff as my podiatrist for a while.
wow what an experience...horrible atmosphere. The front staff is soo unhappy with this man and were talking about quitting..... not something for me to hear. No real solution given to me about my foot problem. Now with a better doctor xrays were necessary..this man did nothing.
Dr. Barkoff was incredibly nice and my visit was overall very pleasant. He seems committed to helping his patients and does so in a very professional, casual manner. He spent the time to show me my x-rays and explain my diagnosis in clear and concise detail, much better than other doctors I've been to. The office is small but clean and I was seen very quickly. Will definitely be coming back to Dr. Barkoff for any foot issues, and would recommend him to anyone!
I was very pleased with my experience. The doctor saw me quickly and was very nice. In addition, the office staff was very friendly.
Visiting Dr. Barkoff was a wonderful experience! He was very kind and funny but most importantly, provided great, all-encompassing care. The staff there is also very kind! A great experience overall. I happily booked my second appointment.
Dr. Matthew Barkoff was wonderful, and I would definitely recommend him. He was very thorough and very nice. I even got in earlier than my scheduled appointment time!
Very approachable and relaxed bedside manner. Made appropriate examinations and notations, gave a few recommendations. Staff was friendly, but made a small mistake in billing as I was leaving.
I went to see Dr. Barkoff based on the good reviews, and I would like add another favorable review. The doctor's office gave me the medication--saving me a trip to the drug store.
Dr. Barkoff and his team were friendly and efficient. They were able to provide me with a clear answer to my concerns, taking care of the initial evaluation, an on-site x-ray, and the final consultation in rapid succession. I would highly recommend Dr. Barkoff's office for potential foot injuries.
Dr. Barkoff is always attentive and his staff is very friendly. Never seems like you're at a doctors appointment , it's like your visiting friends!
First class treatment all around. I have been treated in his office for about 10 years, always excellent! From the reception personnel to the Doctors, everything is top quality.
Great, Thank you!
the doctor was very professional showed concern and gave suggestions. the front office was courtesy with professional and caring attitude, i will be back
Dr. Barkoff is an amazing doctor and diagnostician. I had an 11 am appointment but was in so much pain from my injury and went earlier than appointment time hoping he would see me which he did! He was extremely professional, gentle, kind, caring and diagnosed my injury within minutes of seeing my x-ray. I highly recommend Dr. Barkoff to anyone who is seeking a fabulous Podiatrist!
A quick, friendly, and productive follow-up appointment. No hard-sell on things I don't need, prompt attention to the things I do need.
Dr. Barkoff is very personable but maintains his professionalism. I trust his diagnosis and treatment. Having NYC and LI offices is extremely helpful to me. Would highly recommend.
Good. Friendly. Out quickly.
Dr. Bqrkoff is an excellent podiatrist. I have seen him for general check up and for orthotics. No complains..
The staff was great. Dr. Barkoff was very helpful with my injury and I'll continue to go back. Very friendly relaxed office
I was very pleased with my visit with Dr. Barkoff. He was very thorough and, I believe, found the route of my problem.
A very professional and thorough visit. Dr. Barkoff saw me about 15 min after my scheduled appointment since I first needed to complete some initial paperwork for my first visit. We then briefly spoke about matters unrelated to my visit. This made me feel more comfortable and perhaps given him additional information about my lifestyle to better asses my condition. During the remainder of my visit he was very attentive and explained to me my options. Within 30 min I was out the door. Also the front desk attendant, Eddie, was very friendly and hospitable from the moment I walked into the office.
Dr. Bark off was both professional and extremely personable in this, my first appointment with him. He addressed my problem without rushing me and explained my options and the pros and cons of each. Together we came up with a treatment plan. I feel entirely confident with his approach and look forward to seeing if the treatment works as well as we expect.
Very professional and listens
This was my first visit to Dr. Barkoff. I was impressed! The office staff was courteous and I was seen by Dr. Barkoff very promptly. Dr. Barkoff was friendly, very informative, and dealt with my issue in an extremely competent manner.
Good bedside manner and I was seen quickly. Overall, an easy visit.
Great guy, very personable and professional. Office waiting time is generally less than 30 mins even on a busy evening. I would highly recommend Dr. Barkoff.
Dr. Barkoff was wonderful!! I made a same day appointment for early evening and on top of that I was a new patient. The front desk staff were friendly, and the whole process was efficient. Dr. Barkoff was really friendly and gentle. Highly recommend.
Profesional, effective and pleasant visit.
A very nice man- very down to earth. He knew his specialty and was helpful.
I was very pleased with my son's visit with Dr. Barkoff. Both the office staff and doctor were great!
Dr. Barkoff was thorough in explaining options and next steps. I waited about 10 minutes, I think primarily because my appointment was right after lunch.
Terrific doctor. Works very professionally and efficiently.
Excellent Doctor, very thorough and honest. He's kind and makes you feel very comfortable.
I have been seeing Dr. Barkoff for several years and have always been pleased with the level of care I receive. He is very knowledgeable and has a genuine concern for his patients. Your feet will be in good hands with Dr. B!
Doctor could not come up with a diagnosis. Total waste of my time and money
I don't write reviews often but I have to say that Dr. Barkoff is one of the best and nicest doctors that I have ever seen. I had a very painful ingrown toenail that has completely healed since he treated it conservatively. I highly highly recommend him and feel fortunate that I found him.
Wonderful experience and as someone who gets very nervous about going to the doctor, he was great and calmed me down and reassured me everything would be okay! Definitely go see him.
I had been seeing an excellent podiatrist for years, until he retired two months ago. Turned out he was 92 years old! Dr Barkoff proved to be every bit as caring and good a doctor as my old (very old!) one was, and, to my surprise, the same somewhat painful treatment my old doctor always performed was absolutely painless with Barkoff. Seems not only was my previous doctor old in years, but so was his equipment! Hence, painless treatment with new excellent equipment. Anyway, seeing Dr. Barkhoff was a most pleasant experience.
Dr. Barkoff had the BEST bedside manner I have experienced from ANY type of doctor I've seen. He felt exceptionally genuine and caring. He is what you think a doctor should be. Thanks, Dr. Barkoff!
It was a wonderful experience! He was very thorough and kind. He also put my daughter at ease. I also thought the staff in the office was amazing. Very nice and extremely attentive!
I arrived early. I got processed early. Dr. Barkoff is friendly, soft spoken, unnerving, and humorous! He exudes a level of confidence that puts you at ease. He respectfully, and helpfully answered any questions I had, without rush. The recommendations from his observation felt convincing and sincere. I didn't feel robbed, but in fact helped! I left "on a good foot" feeling I was equipped with some good information, and set on the right path. Dr B. even assisted with an additional issue that I initially did not come in for. I would highly recommend this Dr. and this office to any and all of my family and friends!
The doctor was pushing me to wear a boot for 6 weeks - I said I wanted to first try to just take it easy without using a boot. He asked if he should prescribe a boot for me anyway and I said no; but got a phone call from my insurance the next day to get information for the approval.
Dr. Barkoff is everything a doctor should be - thorough, patient and reassuring. He took all of my questions and concerns seriously, examined the toe that brought me in thoroughly and carefully, explained my options and provided reasonable advice. He was extremely personable and I even walked away with a book recommendation. I can't recommend him enough!
Dr. Barkoff is very nice and knowledgable. He has great bedside manner and I feel comfortable with his treatment. Additionally, his office manager needed to follow up with my insurance and she had an answer within hours - much faster than expected!
Dr. Barkoff was able to identify and take care of my problem right away. He was sure to take into account the fact that I am a runner and have two important races coming up in his treatment plan, opting for the less invasive option for now and leaving the more invasive option as a last resort if and when needed.
The doctor was dismissive and did not have any good insight into foot problems. He was more interested in selling his products.
Dr Barkoff was welcoming and put my son at ease. He recommended a procedure and handled calls to insurance to confirm coverage. Great experience.
Professional and knowledgeable
Great doctor and very nice person. I was treated by Dr. Barkoff 17 years ago and returned this week for another problem. Very satisfied on both occasions. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Barkoff is one of the best doctors I've ever encountered. He was very friendly and made sure I felt comfortable during my visit. He took the time to explain everything I needed to know while I was there. His staff was also very good at keeping me informed about my insurance and appointment times. He also stays open late on Wednesdays, which is great because I work during the day. I highly recommend Dr. Barkoff to everyone!
Dr Barkoff is a great, professional and concerned doctor. He takes the time to sit with you and hear whats wrong and then makes sure you leave with a clear plan and follow up date. Highly recommend him!
My husband is a patient (both Dr. Barkoff and Dr. Ferguson) and has been very pleased with their services, thus when I had an issue this was my first choice. Dr. Barkoff was thorough in explaining what may have caused my issue and the plan for treatment. Very informative in answering my questions. Would definitely return to this practice for my podiatry needs.
He was very kind and explained my options based in my results from the crazy and his evaluation. I will definitely recommend him to others
I feel he's a terrific doctor. When I come to him and I'm nervous or worries about my feet, he pretty quickly puts me at ease. I'm very lucky to have picked Dr Barkoff for I actually look forward to seeing him every time I have an appointment. He's a good man!!
Dr Barkoff was great. His staff was less great: not very friendly, spoke softly so you could barely hear them over the tall counter, ate smelly food in the reception room.
He is a wonderful doctor.
Very nice staff, and kind, knowledgable doctor. I will be going back.
Dr. Barkoff is an excellent doctor. He makes sure that your orthotics are perfect for you. Very patient
Dr. Barkoff is very professional -- both fast and efficient in his diagnostics and treatment, and compassionate and humorous at the same time.
He's an awesome Doctor. Would recommend to anyone!!!!
Very nice man. Great doctor. Explained all I needed to know very detailed and both in Dr. talk and in plain English so I can understand better.
Dr Barkoff was very kind, professional, and helpful. He made me feel comfortable, took immediate action to treat my problem, and informed me of a long term treatment plan. I would definitely recommend him.
Best podiatrist ever.
Dr. Barkoff was very thorough and informative. While my problem was not easily diagnosed, he took his time in ruling various things out and was very communicative. He has a very easy-going bedside manner. I would highly recommend.
Great podiatrist, very convenient location! Highly recommend!
Would recommend to anyone looking for a quality doctor. Locations both in NYC and Long Island, making visits extremely convenient. Knowledgable, great bedside manner - full confident in his diagnosis and treatment plan.
He was friendly, professional, and made me feel comfortable during my visit.
Dr. Barkoff was friendly and thorough. He took the time to explain all of my options so that I was informed before I made any decisions on treatment.
The staff was very nice and pleasant. I was seen right away by the doctor, he was welcoming and pleasant. He answered all my questions. I was surprised how fast he was ready to see me and help. Thank you Dr. Barkoff...
My visit with Dr. Barkoff was excellent. He addressed my problem promptly, offered me a range of solutions, provided to me his recommendation and then allowed me to decide the path I thought was best suited for me and my lifestyle. I appreciated his straight forward approach, and his staff who were both friendly and helpful.
The staff was incredibly pleasant and helpful. Dr. Barkoff was very thorough and addressed all of my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Barkoff and will be visiting his office for all future foot problems.
I have been to Dr. Barkoff's office for several months now. The staff is polite and the wait time is not long at all. The only odd thing is that you pay your co-pay at the end the visit as opposed to beginning. I'm not quite sure why that is.
What a wonderful office! The staff behind the desk is always cheerful and attentive and Dr Barkoff is just the best. He explains everything going on in terms that you can understand and puts you at ease. You leave with no question, knowing that should one arise, he is at your service to assist in any way that he can. One of the best experiences I've had at a doctors office.
It was great!
Dr. Barkoff is very professional and very friendly. He strikes a good balance. I like that he told me what he was going to do as he was doing it. Non-aggressive treatment, pain-free. Will make another appt with him in a few months, as he directed.
Dr. Barkoff identifies the problem and treats it simply and effectively. He does not pressure the patient to try complicated procedures ( e.g.. foot surgery) when there is a more conservative option that is likely to work. I never wait more than ten minutes and I always walk out happier.
He was knowledgeable, personable, quick, and communicated a clear plan. I was very pleased with the experience and the outcome.
He is honest and concerned about the patient. He even picked up & spoke to me when I had when I called in. I am happy with him.
Dr. Barkoff is not only a first rate physician but also cares deeply for his patients. His office staff is efficient and pleasant.
Doctor was very professional and listened carefully to my concerns. He truly cares about your well being. He is very down to earth and willing to answer any questions.
It was great
My visit to Dr. Barkoff was excellent! I visited with foot issues I've been dealing with for years and he had new approaches that I think will really help. He had a great bedside manner, listened attentively and seems to have a well run office.
Dr. Barkoff was affable and open to all my questions about my diagnosis and treatment. He took the time to discuss this with me, and various treatment methods. I really appreciate that.
Dr. Barkoff is the kind of guy you can trust your feet to.
Dr. Matthew Barkoff is an excellent doctor! My visit there was better than I could have imagined. The staff are all really friendly, and Dr. Barkoff was sincere and genuine when talking to me about my concerns. Turns out it wasn't really anything to be worried about, which is always nice to hear. We even casually talked about basketball too (a sport we both enjoy, and the reason I was there). I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone that is having any problems with their feet.
I went to see Dr. Barkoff with a broken toe and he was very patient and thorough with his examination. Dr. Barkoff explains my injury very clearly to me and had his assistant followed up with me the same day to get me fitted to a casting boot. Although a broken toe was an unpleasant experience, Dr. Barkoff helped ease my concern.
My visit was very pleasant. The wait time was short, and the staff were great.
I was impress I was called in exactly at the time of my appointment.
Dr Barkoff was great, I very highly recommend him. Extremely skilled, attentive, professional. I've been in NYC since 1996 and this is my best medical experience so far.
Very pleased. Staff and Dr. were courteous and efficient.
barkoff was right to the point. the office was supportive. i called and asked for an immediate appointment and was accommodated.
I highly recommend Dr. Barkoff. He helped me get rid of some pain and discomfort I had in my foot and offered great suggestions / directions on how to treat in in the future. The visit was very quick. I waited 5 minutes and my issue was resolved in 10 minutes.
Very helpful and friendly. I would definitely go back!
I Have Been Here A Few Times And i Can Not Say Anything But Good Things About Dr Barkoff. Professional, Courteous, Kind, And Does An Awesome Job On My Feet! I Highly Recommend.
I've seen Dr. Barkoff several times and it's always been a good experience. His staff is courteous and professional. I recommend him.
I thought Dr. Barkoff was great! He made sure to ask all the right questions, explained to me what to do until my next appointment and then explained what we would discuss at the follow up appointment. I'm 26 and don't have too many friends with feet problems but I will definitely recommend him to anyone who asks. There was also hardly a wait and the office staff was friendly as well!
I was treated with respect and consideration. I am following Dr. Barkoff's recommendation for further steps concerning my orthopedic problems. So far, the antibiotics he has prescribed seem effective and I intend to follow his advice about the further treatment. Above all, I appreciate his straightforward professional approach.
Thorough, professional, a doctor with impeccable credentials and very attentive to my needs.
Consider yourself lucky that you're considering Dr. Barkoff. I've had 2 experiences, and the 1st, where Dr. Barkoff took good care of me, brought me back for a 2nd visit for a different problem. Again, great doctoring.
Not helpful waste of time and didn't do anything.
Doctor was friendly and professional. Was considerate of the expense of repeated visits, and explained the cause and possible treatments and their benefits/risks. Fairly prompt service as well. Only complaint would be that office is a bit dated, nothing unsterile though.
Great, no nonsense reassuring appointment. Fixed my son's ingrowing toenail with a small procedure. Will definitely be going back
Doc was friendly, efficient and knowledgable
Small office with friendly office staff. Dr. Barkoff was very knowledgeable and diagnosed my issue very quickly. After one appointment and a follow up I was back to normal. Would definitely recommend Dr. Barkoff for any foot related issues.
Dr. Barkoff, is a true caring professional.
Good demeanor; explains issues well; feel like you are in good hands. Helpful staff.
Office staff were very helpful and professional, wait time was less than 30 minutes. I explained my concerns to the doctor and he was able to assist and provide recomendations. I Would recommend this doctor.
Dr. Barkoff seemed very professional and knowledgeable about my problem. I look forward to further treatment.
GREAT !!!!! POINT BLANK
Went very well.
Dr. Barkoff was very helpful in diagnosing my problem and providing instant relief with OTC treatments available for purchase in the office. He also outlined a clear path to recovery that would not require a costly and painful surgery for which I am thankful!
waiting time is quite long, almost one hour, I have arrive on time.
I am grateful to have met him.
Super kind, considerate and listens well.
Had and awesome experience..thanx doc
Amazing! He answered all my questions and offered real solutions! THANK YOU!
Dr. Barkoff was great and I would highly recommend him. It did seem as though ZocDoc appointments were not put on the regular schedule so I had to wait a long time before I was seen. In the future, I will most likely just call the office to make an appointment to reduce the wait.
Could not have been an easier process from making the appointment, to being taken care of exactly at that time. Dr. Barkoff was great in explaining exactly what he was going to do to solve the problem (a painfully infected ingrown toe nail), the procedure itself didn't take all that long and afterwards he gave easy-to-follow instructions as to the immediate after care as well as long term thoughts/suggestions to deal with it should the problem re-arise. I "never" go to the doctor and this was a pleasant and effective experience. Highly recommend.
Dr. Barkoff and his staff were very nice and professional. Will be seeing him again.
He was very professional, thorough, courteous and helpful!
First visit was awesome! I was seen right away and felt very comfortable the entire visit.Dr.Barkoff as well as the staff were very nice
Excellent and very conscientious
He is very friendly and kind. Wouldn't go to anyone else.
Dr. Barkoff thoroughly explained my condition and what the possible corrective actions are. I especially appreciate that while it looks like surgery may be the best option, he lays out the pros and cons, and likes to try to treat non-surgically before heading in that direction and does not push you into a surgical decision. I never felt like he was rushing, xrays were same day in the office, and he was thorough and made sure all my questions were answered. Great experience.
Front desk attendants very proffesional and attentive
The Dr has a great sense of humor. I am squeamish when it comes to strangers touching my toes, he was very patient and gentle.
The office gives off a good feeling and the staff are professional and helpful. Dr Barkoff makes you very comfortable and explains to you want your problem is very clearly. Very nice office we'll be back for follow-ups.
Very professional. I recommend
Friendly, professional, helpful.
Had to cancel my last appointment but the staff as always was gracious and helpful..
Dr. Barkoff was very warm and welcoming. He was very thorough and honest. I felt comfortable. He attended me right away and addressed all of my concerns. The world needs more doctors like him.
Friendly employees. Nice demeanor. Overall nice office
Very pleasant atmosphere , cordial & professional.
I think Dr. Barkoff was very professional, his office staff was very efficient and, overall, I think it was a positive experience.
he was really nice. He took an x-ray right away and went over it with me without making me wait. His staff was also very pleasant on the phone and in person.
Dr. Barkoff was concerned and interested in my well being. He made me feel relaxed during the procedure and offered his assistance if I needed further care after today's procedure.
I have been seeing Dr. Barkoff on a regular basis for almost 7 years. And I haven't been disappointed once! He and his staff are friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend him.
Thorough, professional, with an informative diagnosis and treatment.
Very professional and friendly!! Great office staff which is a major plus!!!
As always my visit with Dr. Barkoff and his staff was great. The doctor is wonderful and his staff is as well... I would and do recommend Dr. Barkoff to anyone.
Waited over 30 min. Waiting room was small, extremely crowded. There were not enough seats for everyone. Dr. Barkoff was efficient with the diagnosis, but didn't give that much information on the best way to treat the condition.
I liked this doctor a lot. He was friendly, kind, professional, and knew what he was talking about.
It was my first time at his office and I was extremely pleased with my experience. He was patient and answered all of my questions.
He is very professional and very pleasant.
Dr. Barkoff was an absolute pleasure. I waited less than ten minutes in the waiting room and only about five in the actual chair. He had terrific bedside manner, chatted for a while, and fixed something completely painlessly in about five minutes that I thought would take a long surgery and anesthetic.
He seems to have done the job correctly!
Great ! Gives you an honest and professional consultation !!
always wait more than 1 hr which is ridiculous
Highly recommended! I was seen immediately and Dr. Barkoff quickly and painlessly fixed my problem (shard of glass in my foot).
Dr. Barkoff takes the time to listen and also to advise and give his honest opinion. You're in good hands!
He gave us options which I appreciated.
He addressed our issues given several solutiions to our problems.
Dr. Barkoff is simply the best podiatrist that I ever encountered. I just love me some Dr. Barkoff!!!!
Barkoff My entire experience with Dr. Barkoff was great from start to finish. I can't think of a negative thing to say. I needed to have surgery done on my foot, and Dr. Barkoff was straight forward from the very beginning, telling me that he was going to do his absolute best to make everything perfect, but that (very rarely) things may heal in a way that isn't 100% pretty. I'm not sure about others, but I greatly appreciate it when a doctor is up front and tells you these things, as simple as it may sound. I was in and out of his office in about a half hour (tops) for the first visit! As a busy New Yorker with a crazy schedule, this is CRUCIAL for me... And I do not feel that the quality of my visit was comprised at all. Dr. Barkoff is quick, professional, knowledgable, and gentle! He definitely understands that his patients are busy people-- probably because he is, too. I scheduled my surgery for less than a week later. Not going to lie, I was nervous (my pain tolerance = non existent). The surgery was quick and painless, during and after. A week later I had my follow up appointment, and I can tell you that everything is healing in a way that is "pretty"! Not sure which podiatrist to see? Go to Dr. Barkoff. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed. I know that I will be going back for any issues that I may have in the future, and will be advising my friends to do so as well.
A pleasure always. Very down to earth. Luv him!
Professional and thorough.
I am very pleased with my first visit and with Dr. Barkoff's sensitivity to my situation. In addition, his staff was very nice and personable.
Very nice manner, personable, knowledgeable, offered good advice, and answered all questions.
I am a huge baby when it comes to pain, which I let Dr. Barkoff know right off the bat. He was incredibly understanding, while being honest and straight forward. I am very grateful for his care!
Fast, efficient, no nonsense, kind, easy to talk to. Was pleased.
Dr. Barkoff was friendly and down-to-earth. I liked his explanations of my foot condition and his treatment recommendations. His staff was very nice too.
Dr. Barkoff is a very warm, caring, and compassionate podiatrist. He is very personable and makes you feel very comfortable throughout the visit. I would highly recommend using his services for all of your foot care needs. : )
He's great and he tailored his treatment based on what I was comfortable with. He was not at all pushy with the orthotics and he respected my opinions. I highly recommend him.
Very friendly office and caring service!
I've seen Dr. Barkoff several times and am pleased with him.
My family are long time patients of Dr. Barkoff and his colleague, Dr. Ferguson. We like both of these doctors and highly recommend them. They are very caring and good at what they do. We generally get appointments quickly. I highly recommend Dr. Barkoff.
Very professional. I highly recommend this doctor.
What a wonderful office! Super nice staff, and Dr. Barkoff is great!
I have visited him a few times in his Levittown office. Always easy to speak to and answers all of your questions. Highly recommended!
Everything was great! The office staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and really had it together. Dr. Barkoff did a great job, and gave me all the information I needed. I would recommend his practice to anyone.
Very good and I speak as a physician.
He was very interested in hearing what I had to say without rushing me. He did a very thorough exam to fit me for a pair of orthotics and was very caring and reassuring he would be sure they were just right for me. And he did - I can now walk without pain. Thank you Dr. Barkoff!
Organized, professional, no paperwork issues, and a happy solution to my relatively uncomplicated problem.
I thought he was great. He was extremely helpful and pleasant. He gave me sound advice on what I needed to do with my condition. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needed a really good, solid, informed, and caring doctor!
Very good and professional.
He was great and efficient.
Dr Barkoff was great - listened thoughtfully, and explained my full set of options before offering his opinion
I felt Dr. Barkoff took great interest in my problem concerning my feet. He offered sound advice and options to solving my issues. Dr. Barkoff showed professionalism and took his time to answer my questions
Excellent and on point. He's very funny too. Very knowledgeable. Fast visit. Would highly recommend
Great experience. Highly recommend this practice.
Quick and easy visit - understood the purpose of my visit and provided a few different treatment options that varied in expense for me to consider. Did not try to push the more expensive treatments, and it really felt like Dr. Barkoff had my best interests in mind.
I thought Dr Barkoff was great. Listened to me thouroughly, took and evaluated X-Rays while I was in treatment room, provided diagnosis, treatment regimen (stretching) and immediate pain relief.
Very efficient office Taken timely Showed concern
The office staff is very friendly and professional. Dr. Barkoff is awesome!
This was my second visit in the past two weeks. Dr. Barkoff knows his stuff. His office is well run and efficient. He was very gentle and made sure to avoid causing any pain. He answered all of my questions.
Dr Barkoff was very professional and addressed my foot issues with great care. I can report that the primary problem was resolved by changes to my shoes and that it does not seem to be serious.
Dr. Barkoff was great; he saw me a few minutes after I arrived, and took the time to explain everything I needed to know.
Dr. Barkoff listened carefully to what was happening to me, he was kind and sensitive and went out of his way to give me the best help he could.
Great experience. Would highly recommend
knowledgeable and personable, I would highly recommend dr. barkoff.
He was very nice and knowledgable. He could had said I needed surgery and brought his facility money from my insurance, but instead he warned me of the complications that comes with the sergery and recommend it was not worth it for my minor complain. Will def recommend him to anyone I know.
Dr.Barkoff is great....the staff was polite and very helpful...I have been going to Dr. Barkoff for years, I have recommended him in the past and will continue to do so in the future.
The office was fairly prompt, and the doctor was friendly, but did not spend significant time on my diagnosis, or focusing on the specific issues I brought up, despite a very comprehensive set of paperwork I had to fill out. I did not think this doctor was bad, but he didn't strike me as particularly good either.
Very nice guy, very good experience with the office. I would highly reccomend him!
He was a great doctor, and his staff were very friendly. I will becoming back for future appointments.
Dr. Barkoff is professional, thoughtful, and clear, and his staff is friendly and efficient.
Great doctor with an awesome personality. He took his time to fully evaluate my injury. His staff was also very accommodating!
I strongly recommend Dr. Barkoff. He is professional and has a great bed side manner.
He is excellent.
He is friendly and professional.
GREAT! He listened carefully and was thorough, took time but didn't waste a minute. I came away with information, options and hope.
Dr. Barkoff answered every question I asked kindly and gave me very honest and clear explanations regarding my symptom. I am definitely going back.
Dr. Barkoff is wonderful and his office staff is friendly and professional. I highly recommend him.
I found Dr. Barkoff via ZocDoc around 11:30, and visited his office by 1pm. After a few quick x-rays, he quickly identified the issue. I'm going to follow his instructions and hope for a speedy recovery! Thank you Dr. Barkoff.
Caring manner about him...gives off a feeling of trust.
Very Pleased with the outcome...The doctor has stellar credentials and still takes the time to listen carefully and explain what needs to be done in an engaging yet professional manner...Patient, comfortable and knowledgeable...The staff was lovely too....
My first time meeting with this DPM, he was great. The office was very busy (post storm) and he worked quickly while still making me feel like I had his full attention.
One of the friendliest and efficient Drs office I have ever been in. Dr. Barkoff is so knowledgeable, thorough, informative, and answers any questions. He also teaches you about your issue, the cause, treatment, prognosis. To top it off he's a great guy.
Very friendly and professional.
Came for a dual ingrown toenail consultation. Almost no wait, the doctor came in with a big smile. Good sense of humor and laid it all out so it was easy to understand with a couple options to make things work around MY schedule. Highly professional and knowledgeable. Too bad my insurance ran out before I could follow up with the actual procedure. Otherwise, would def recommend.
Nice clean and stable environment , fast service and friendly faces. Doctor was very informative and caring . Found my foot doctor ! :)
He is nice and friendly. Seeing him definitely helped.
He was great, the whole staff was great! They're very accommodating, even when I had an insurance debacle they tried their best to find any and ALL solutions. Super refreshing experience!
I was there a few hours early and fully prepared to wait yet he still took me right away! I'm new to the whole doctor and insurance thing and the office was very helpful to me.
Dr. Barkoff is a true professional! I was very pleased with him and his staff...
Nice and competent doctor, gave me advice that previous doctors did not give me. Overall pleasant experience. Will be back.
Dr. Barkoff was fantastic. I took a chance by going to him simply off of ZocDoc reviews, and he really was great. I have a bunion along with a few other foot issues, and rather than talk me into expensive custom orthotics, he encouraged me to just get Spenco insoles for now. I appreciated his honesty and professionalism.
He seemed professional and knowledgeable. I had a minor problem and he was honest about my options, suggesting the least invasive procedure, which I appreciated.
I thought he was first rate. Knowledgeable, respectful, informative.
I dont know where he got all his good reviews from, because he wasn't great at all. Maybe because I am a workers comp patient, not sure. He has a sarcastic sense of humor. I was giving him the full backgroung on my pain history and he told me that he cant help me on the other stuff because he is a doctor that specializes on foot problems... like I didn't know that already. Second, his office manager is very reluctant in cooperating with workers comp. The last thing was, how do you send me to physical therapy and then not send the proper paperwork? I am almost certain they wanted to force me to go to the places they want, and not what I want. Overall I did not have a good experience with this doctor or his staff specifically the office manager. Oh and another thing, the office is SUPER small! If this is a place to treat foot pains how is it that there aren't enough seats! Makes no sense! there was a poor lady in a walker standing. Absolutely ridiculous....
Dr. Barkoff is compassionate, easy to talk to, and extremely knowledgeable. He took the time to address each of my concerns/complaints, articulately detailing his diagnosis of each. The office staff is highly attentive to patients' needs. My visit was a pleasure from beginning to end.
Professional, down to earth.
Hes a excellent Doctor , good work Dr Barkoff
He's terrific! He anticipates questions, provides detailed answers and makes useful suggestions. I would recommend him highly.
There was a bit of a wait, but it was completely worth it. Dr. Barkoff is very knowledgeable and caring. He took his time and didn't make me feel short-changed like many doctors in Manhattan tend to do. I'd recommend him to anyone.
He was very efficient, really liked his service and then he was very professional about his service.
I wish I had gone in earlier. He was genuinely concerned and helpful. I ran into complications after a bunion surgery elsewhere...and came to Dr. Matthew Barkoff for a second opinion and addressed my situation immediately. Always go for a doctor with hospital affiliations... A word of advice to all bunion correction seekers
It was great. I got the answer I was looking for.
I was really impressed by his professionalism and courtesy.
Not helpful...He offered no realistic options for pain relief except "lifestyle change"...unfortunately some of us have to work for a living...
Dr. Barkoff was very helpful and informative in diagnosing a problem I've been having for over a year. I've seen other podiatrists about a dance injury; this is the first time I've gotten a clear answer about what the problem is and how to treat it. Other dancers and athletes should see him if they're having foot problems!
Great personality; very personable and knowledgeable about his profession. Answered all my questions with patience. Highly recommended.
Dr. Barkoff was great! He took the time to really listen to me and explain what to expect with my foot issue. Great bedside manner and I did not feel rushed at all like I often do with other doctors. Very caring.
He was great! No issues with the procedure and he laid out all my options so that I could make the decision as to how to deal with my condition.
I visited the Levittown office. the Doctor and the staff were unbelievably nice. they were knowledgeable, and they treated me like person, not like a patient! They were attentive and fast, and one thing i really loved about Dr. Barkoff is that he kept saying "well, this is the advice I would give you if you were my own sister...." He made the visit personable and seamless. I would DEFINITELY go again, and I would recommend him and his staff to anyone who appreciates great customer service.
Good experience...Dr Barkoff was thorough and took the time to explain my situation. Would definitely come back
The wait time wasn't too long even though the waiting area was crowded. Dr. Barkoff listened to my concerns and was thorough in his explanations. I won't hesitate to see him again for a follow-up appointment!
Very easy going, and knowledgable. Dr Barkoff takes time to answer all questions. He does not make you return to his office unnecessarily. The office staff is very helpful and pleasant.
Good bedside manner, friendly, shows attention and takes time to explain things.
This was my first visit to Dr. Barkoff. I found him from a search through my insurance. Of the multitude of choices I choose Dr. B. as a result of proximity and the review of others. I was not disappointed. As a teacher and parent I was particularly touched when he brought in a student and carefully explained to both myself and her my specific issues. I left feeling informed and confident he would get to root of my painful foot issues. Will definitively return :) Thanks for all the good reviews very helpful!
THIS DPM RIGHT HERE IS ABOVE THE REST HE'S THE BEST!! HE HAS A RELAXING VIBE AND HIS STAFF ARE WONDERFUL ALSO!!I DON'T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I WENT TO SEE A DPM AND WAS LAUGHING SO MUCH TEARS WERE IN MY EYES ( I FELT LIKE I WAS AT AN EDDIE MURPHY STANDUP COMEDY SHOW) YOU GUYS R THE BEST!!! SMOOCHEZ SUNSHINES!! MUAH!!!
Great Job. Exactly what I was looking for.
Dr.Barkoff is a gem. He is honest, attentive and very good at what he does. Thank you Dr.Barkoff
Very impressed by Dr. Barkoff. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
The visit was very pleasant. The doctor and the staff were all very nice. I would go back in the future.
Even though the office was busy, I was in an exam room literally 2 minutes after my scheduled time. (It helps that you can download and fill out the paperwork in advance.) Office staff was pleasant, though businesslike in the busy office. Dr. Barkoff was very pleasant, and he clearly had his attention on me and not his next appointment -- in fact, when we'd finished and he was off to the next exam room, I remembered that I had a quick question about an unrelated issue, and he came right back without hesitation and answered it. I'm not sure how things would have worked if I'd had a more complex problem, but I'm happy to give him the benefit of the doubt. It doesn't look like I'll need a follow-up, but I'll gladly go see Dr. Barkoff again the next time I need a podiatrist.
Staff was great and efficient. Took very little time.
I was very happy with dr barkoff as well as his office. He is very nice and explained all my medical options. I will continue with this practice.
Very friendly and efficient service. Office staff was cheerful and helpful.
love love love
Dr. Barkoff was great! He explained things clearly, wanted to use as minimal an intervention as possible and was very confident and reassuring.
Dr. Barkoff is exceptional. He recommended me to a specialist and called to make me an immediate appointment when he realized he may not have the right answers for me. He continues to follow up on my well-being which is something I have never experienced with any doctor. He truly cares about his patients.
best of the best
Seen quickly. Dr Barkoff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Would certainly see again.
Don't hesitate. Dr. Barkoff was great and the only wait was because I was a new patient and had to fill out paperwork.
The Doctor is very knowledgeable and helpful. He has very good manners and great bedside skills. Would definitely recommend him.
Got there and was seen immediately. Dr. Bark off was great. Definitely recommend him.
I am extremely squeamish and needed to have a procedure done for an ingrown toenail. Dr. Barkoff was great at making me feel comfortable and he is great at what he does. I would recommend him to anyone!
I was very happy that he schedules appointments so the wait time minimal. He's got a wonderful bedside manner and takes the time to explain things and answer all your questions.
Dr. Barkoff showed very good knowledge of my foot problems via explanation of what was on the x-rays. He discussed the pros and cons of my options and was even kind enough to offer other colleagues for 2nd opinions if desired. The office staff was courteous and professional to me and the other patients waiting.
Great doctor! The wait time was definitely worth it. Very friendly and takes time with his patients.
Saw his colleague. The doctor was very approachable and thorough.
Most doctors are always in a rush, and not willing to really hear about your issue/concern. He took the time to explain what was going on, why it was happening, and ways in which I can get better. HIGHLY recommend him!
Dr Barkoff made sure to make me comfortable and explain to me everything that was going on with my toe. I would definitely go back.
He was thorough and explained the various reasons why I was having pain. He made a couple of suggestions to elviate and helped me decide the best course of action.
I waited a bit, which was ok...it was well worth it. Besides, I would worry if I didn't have to wait a bit. The office staff was very friendly and Dr. Barkoff was wonderful. He was professional and patient in explaining different options to me.
Dr Barkoff was wonderful! He took his time and really listened to my concerns. The doctor provided a diagnosis that I could understand and treated the problem immediately. As a choreographer/dancer, his care was invaluable to me, and he truly understood my need to be at my best on my feet immediately!
Dr. Markoff was warm and sincere, took his time examining me, seemed to have a very balanced approach as to treatment, and explained everything beautifully. Two thumbs up!
Dr. Barkoff was extremely friendly, yet professional. He took the time to explain what was going on, as well as discuss options for the future.
