Almost an hour wait. Doesn't really explain much about diagnosis and treatment unless you really ask for it. And even then it's short. And they don't seem happy about it.

Dr. Pathak is by far the most patient and knowledgeable. She is so sweet and takes her time to go through your diagnosis and treatment. She makes you feel extremely comfortable throughout the appointment--she even gives her personal cell incase you have any questions/concerns after office hours. I will never go to another podiatrist in the city! Thank you Dr. Pathak!!

The phone numbers on the website aren't in service, and now when they go through the service says they no longer take messages for Dr. Pathak. I've emailed five times - can't get in touch with anyone. Would like to findout where my orthotics are and have follow up questions - but no way to get in touch with anyone at the doctor's office. Very frustrating.

I did not leave the office with a better understanding of the injury that I went in for, and after leaving, I got a phone call from the receptionist asking for a pharmacy number to send a prescription to that wenever discussed (I was not asked about potentially conflicting medications or told why I needed a prescription).

Very off putting. She kept her distance as if I had some horrible disease. Didn’t really make me feel like she examined my condition, just gave me some prescriptions and told me to come back in a couple months. Won’t be going back.

I have only had great experiences with Dr. Pathak and her reception and support staff. This is my second review and I gave 5 stars after my initial appt but when my review was posted it only showed 4 stars. Heroffice area is very clean and atmosphere is very pleasing as well as professional. Dr. Pathak takes the time to hear your needs as well as thoroughly explains the condition and treatment plan. Dr. Pathak is very detailed and due to her referrals for me to get an MRI was able to obtain the condition and provide excellent follow-up care which is still ongoing for me. Her front desk staff are respectful, pleasant, and professional. I am very satisfied with her service provision and will continue to have her as my provider as well as refer her to others that require a specialist in this field. Thank you Doc Zoc for connecting me to an excellent provider!

I came to Dr. Pathak for actual l issues and she barely gave me the time of day. After making me wait 30 mins I was asked by a nurse to come into an exam room. After waiting even longer Dr.Pathak finally entered the room, sat on the clear other side of the room during the seemingly rushed "examination" then rattled off a few prescriptions she said she'd put in for me to pick up. Obviously that never happened. No real medical advice, no prescription tip help with the issues I initially approved her about and no real bedside manner. I'm now disputing the appointment to ensure charged for wasting my time.

Dr. Pathak is a very knowledgeable and compassionate doctor. She listened intently to my issue regarding my foot injury and provided detailed professional advisement. She is very thorough in her treatment and I feel very confident in her hands.I definitely would refer others to her services. Her staff were all courteous and respectful as well as accomodating and friendly. Thank you Doc Zoc for connecting me to a great specialist. Lastly I was able to get an appointment for the next day and that was vital!

Her office feels very new/temporary which I wasn’t thrilled about but Dr Pathak herself was helpful and open to my issues. I’ve ordered some new foot orthotics, we’ll see how it goes.

As a cyclist, and someone's whose profession is being on her feet all day, it was comforting and reassuring having Dr. Pathaks's care as a podiatrist. I was relived to hear that not all solutions are a cortisone shot, but learningabout healthy manners to care for my feet and keep them healthy was discussed. Care was applied the same day, all staff was attentive. The bedside manners eased my worries, and made me feel better that I was in the right hands.

The receptionist started talking to another patient in the middle of my intake so I just had to stand there, with my hurt foot, while she did. Then, I waited for about 30 minutes before seeing the doctor. She was fine,but took no X-rays or anything, asked me a lot of questions about what brand of running shoes I wear, and then gave me a diagnosis, put me in a boot and talked about next steps. I told them I was going on vacation in two days and so needed to get follow-up appointments done quickly. I tried calling them for two days with no response. Because I didn't want to wait, I went to another podiatrist, got X-rays, and a plan for PT. They put in prescriptions without telling me and I finally got a call from the receptionist 5 days later, at which point I told her I was moving ahead with another doctor. I booked this appointment via zocdoc because I was in a lot of pain and it was near my office. Lesson learned. Will do more research next time before selecting someone.

Nice person but I wouldn't say I'm happy with the service. I went against my better judgment and ordered a kit she highly recommended. She applied the treatment, it was very messy and came off a week later. I wentback for her to reapply it & it came off again 2 days later. I did my own research on the treatment, should have listened to my gut & got the laser somewhere else. So I followed an instructional video on YouTube to reapply it for the THIRD time. Lasted longer but still should've listened to my gut. I was promised something I wasn't given. 3 months later, I'm out of the treatment, she has nothing to say and my toe nail looks the same as it did when I started.

Dr. Pathak is FANTASTIC. The office is clean and calm, the front desk staff are nice and helpful, I waited maybe 5 minutes to be seen and the doctor answered all of my questions very knowledgeably and didn't try to forceme to buy certain orthotics or pursue any further unnecessary care. I would recommend this office the everyone seeking fast and efficient specialist care.
