Listened attentively to my description of my symptoms and concerns. Identified the problems and prescribed the treatment. Was able to address the immediate problems right away, which required in-office surgery.

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.

While the doctor is very pleasant it felt like a conveyor belt system and after a whole series of visits, which were more like foot spa treatments, my problem is exactly the same. So, I am frustrated and have wasted somuch time and will now have to look for another specialist who can actually make some improvements. Go somewhere else.

I love Dr. Cunha. I've seen him for five years. He takes the time to really make sure his work is done perfectly and as a result has a group of repeat patients. His offices are very 2017 and hip andclassy at the same time. In addition, his staff is very courteous and compassionate. I have referred several friends who have referred several friends. I can't say enough nice things about this practice.

While I thought Dr. Cunha seemed like a good doctor, I would be VERY cautious about visiting this practice. I saw him in March for a basic foot pain appointment and now in June, I'm still chasing their medical billing companyabout outrageous charges. Not only did the office bill me for an appt that I didn't even have, but they also added on ridiculous charges like 'ankle wrapping' for both appts. On top of that, everything was billed to Aetna as out of network because apparently a mistake was made in ZocDoc and they are actually not in my network. It just goes to show that a really nice, high-tech, etc. office does not always mean you're getting honest service.

I cannot believe I forgot to write this review after my recover! Dr. Cunha was AMAZING! My plantar fasciitis was easily cured with his recommended regimen and my regular visit to his office. The staff was also amazing! Regardless of whattime I came in and who I was sen by, I received the most courteous and professional care, which was followed-up by a Dr. Cunha's personal visit to finish me up and check on my progress. His bedside manner was amazing as well. I truly enjoyed out chats about the NYC of the late 90's. Truly an amazing experience. A very tiny part of me wished that my foot would never heal. I have recommended him to my husband and everyone I know who has a foot issue.
