This was a great appointment overall. Dr Cunha is excellent. I did have to wait a while because the X-ray machinewasn’t working, but it was the entire team’s first day in this new office so there was a lot going on for them. Dr Cunha is super thorough and focused, and gave me some great options for healing my stress fracture in my toe. I’m definitely going back. They just needed a few days to get their bearings in the new office.

Dr. Cunha is incredibly professional. I came in with a great deal of nerves and he was able to calm me down. (Informs nail.) He is easy to talk to, convey your issue, and resolve your problem. Dr. Cunha will be my go to provider moving forward.

Dr. Cunha handled my ingrown toenail very professionally and in the least painful way possible. He is a very caring and personable doctor to interact with. I've used him for ingrown toenail removal and Achilles tendonitis treatments. Highly recommend him!!!

SO MUCH TO SAY First of all I had no real issue with Dr. Cunha. This was my third attempt to see a Podiatrist for treatment.Dr. Cunha took X-rays and discussed treatment options for my feet. We discussed the treatment optionsin detail. Treatment options which included physical therapy and medication. I was looking forward to starting the medication right away...that night. Ironically when I arrived for treatment /my appointment the Dr. was still not sure what treatment would be covered via my insurance. That's ironic because I thought all that info was provided via using the ZocDoc App. Yesterday when I came for my appointment on MLK day when the insurance office was closed so I was told to wait till my insurance access would be confirmed by today Tuesday 1/21. If confirmed I would be able to start physical therapy. This confirmation would be confirmed via telephone. Now when it was time for me to check out the Latina receptionist who i did the checkout process with ask me when I would be coming back. I told her the time 5:30 appt- which would be realistic for my work schedule.I leave work at 5 pm. She booked me and said nothing more about my appointment. I waited for next steps regarding my medication. Remember the old days when one left with a prescription and went to the pharmacy to obtain the medication in person. That's what I thought was going to happen. Not in my case the Latina Receptionist told me I would be automatically using a pharmaceutical delivery service I never heard about before called Bigsix. She failed to provide any context about who this delivery service was etc. Or why I had no option to go to a pharmacist by myself. it was the other Receptionist who said the benefit of Bigsix was they used coupons and discounts etc. I felt slighted / overlooked by the Latina receptionist who should of told me about my options. Now I'm waiting for a phone call about my medication. I think I rather just go and get the prescription on own that is if I have an option? Lastly my request WAS FOR A 530 APPT so I'm confused why I got a 5pm appt which I cant make - for the reasons I provided...

This practice takes a one-size fits all approach, presumably motivated by billable services. They will suggest every possible approach (orthotics, pills, cremes, PT, etc.) they can charge for. Cunha has a very bad reputation among Podiatristsin the city. During my appointment, he digressed into bizarre political commentary and seemed erratic (possibly sleep-deprived?)

The Doctor was very knowledgeable and knew my foot issue instantly. He also provided me with helpful paperwork detailing the layout of my issue. His assistant was also very helpful and friendly. The office gets very busy during lunch time astheir are other doctors sharing the office. However, the business does not prevent the doctor from attending his patients.

Finally found a doctor who listens and understands. My problem (an achilles issue) is not all that complicated, but other podiatrists I had seen have been very poor. Dr Miguel's technical knowledge is brilliant and you really feel like you arebeing treated by someone who is at the top of his field. He listened to me, and then said "We are going to get you better, and here is how we will do it...." which is all we want to hear.

Doctor Cunha is an amazing doctor and an amazing human being. I have been seeing him for months and have had several procedures with him. He is so much better than every podiatrist I have seen over the past 10 years.He really cares about his patients and will never recommend surgery unless absolutely necessary. His office is World class with the best equipment and staff. Rest assured you are in good hands for surgical procedures in his office

I love the office. It’s so clean and has so much potential. It was my first time seeing the dr in this office and felt very rushed. Dr Cunha seemed busy and after waiting a long while I almost had toleave and reschedule. He wasn’t very engaging or seem to care about my foot injury. I was there about an hour but he spent only 5-10mins with me and I didn’t feel he asked me enough about my injury.

I went to see doctor Cunha to get consultation on the options for bunion treatment. The doctor took his time to explain all possible options including treatments and possible outcomes. He was very detailed in his explanations and made me thinkand educate myself before jumping on the decision to make a pretty invasive surgery. I appreciate it as a previous orthopedic surgeon was pretty much insisting on the surgery and didn't even mention half of the things which doctor Cunha explained so well. Definitely recommend him.

Gotham Footcare is, hands-down, one of the best medical practices I've ever been experienced. I was looking for a podiatrist to help with a few issues I was experiencing, and was amazed by Dr Cunha's reviews and booked an appointment online.I loved the fact that I both book and fill out all my paperwork and insurance info online, so I didn't have to deal with it when I got there in person. From the first time I walked into the office, the staff has always been amazing! I really appreciate the care and concern the staff (from the front desk to the whole medical team) has always shown, and how friendly and wonderful everyone is. Having had a therapy protocol that took a number of visits, I cannot say how much that has meant as a patient and how it has made the process enjoyable and created an experience focused on wellness as much as health. That said, the experiences I've had with Gotham Footcare are truly reflective of the incredible quality of care I've received from Dr Cunha. He is truly one of the best doctors I've worked with, and his patient-focused approach has meant a lot, in terms of both healing and mindset. He is always thorough and very clear in his explanations of his approach to treatment and in ensuring that I've always understood my issue, the process, and the progress I made. Truly, I wish I could find a primary care doctor as good as he is with a staff and office as great as they are, because I've always looked forward to my appointments and seeing that incredible group!

Dr. Cunha's office was a typical conveyer belt operation with outdated therapies such as whirlpool (hot bath) and other spa like therapy, and billed my insurance excessive amount. Dr. Cunha did not spend enough time to explain the test results,but more time spent chit chatting and I didn't think that was professional. Most importantly, my foot pain did not get better at all, so I found an another doctor on my own. Months later, I've received a statement from his office noting that I owed them so much even after insurance had covered excessive amount. I'm going to dispute this bill because they told me that they only need to charge my copay because insurance would cover.

Differing opinions from top podiatrists and surgeons as to whether or not I'd need surgery led me to Dr. Cunha. He brought in two doctors to ensure me of my decision. Dr. Cunha is honestly the BEST!!! He SAVED ME FROMHAVING TO DO A SURGERY by performing a procedure that wasn't even suggested to me by the other doctors (a reduction). I'm so beyond grateful for his push, knowledge, and true care for his patient's future and well-being (he spent around 3hrs with me on my first visit). That combination is so hard to find. Staff was incredibly kind as well, esp Dr. Lalehparvar, who coached me through it all too :) Highly recommend for all.
