Patient reviews for Dr. Nelya Lobkova
I arrived at Dr. Lobkova's office on a busy day--the receptionist was out sick, and Dr. Lobkova was managing the front desk as well as treating patients. She handled it all with ease--she took plenty of time to answer my questions, and chatted to keep me relaxed during an uncomfortable procedure. Thorough, funny, and great care--will happily see her for all my podiatry needs!
Vibrant and energetic office team. Heather (office manager) was super helpful in sorting out the insurance coverage and helping me understand what, if anything, I had to do. Dr Lobkova was patient, thorough and extremely knowledgeable and truly showed concern about wellness and treatment rather than "selling" in solutions. I was very comfortable from beginning to end to ask questions that were dumb, complex or anything in between. Highly recommended!
Dr. Lobkova was prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable! Easy process to fix my issue.
They were very accommodating, squeezing me in despite me coming in on the wrong day. Dr. Lobkova was extremely friendly and explained each step of the process, making an uncomfortable procedure as comfortable as possible. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Super thorough. She is very nice and takes the time to explain everything.
What a nice young lady! She was just so damn nice! Normally I love to complain, but I really have nothing here.
Nelya is an incredible doctor, thoughtful, patient, kind, thorough and knowledgeable. She genuinely cared about helping me with my issue. Look forward to our follow up!
Dr. Lobkova was wonderful. Super friendly and made the process as painless as possible. Will definitely be back to see her.
Very professional and friendly. I highly recommend
It was great. She explained to me exactly what was wrong and at the end of the day I started feeling some relief from my injury. She was in no rush despite having other patients waiting. I am definitely going back to see her
Great doctor, highly recommended.
Dr. Lobkova is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She is thorough and engaging. Each visit I’m never disappointed. She treated me for Plantar Fasciitis. Conveniently, physical therapy was in office. I am completely cured and it’s because of Dr. Lobkova’s expert care. She’s great with kids too!
Dr. Lobkova made my first podiatrist appt a very pleasant one. They were very thorough and I received a lot of information on ailment. I hope my pain goes away but happy to know Dr. Lobkova is around!
First appointment with Dr Lobkova. I had an excellent experience and I wish all the doctors and clinics work the same way as her: - I did not have to wait. - Took the time to explain to me the pros and cons of the treatment alternatives for both of my conditions. - Provided a creative short-term solution for one of my issues. - She is a good listener, smart, kind and professional... and she cares.
I was very impressed not only with the care Dr. Lobkova showed me and the office in general, but also with the fact that they offer the convenience of doing everything in one place such as physical therapy and orthopedic fitting! That was a surprise to hear. It might sound like I’m in an ad, but really, I’m so happy I found this Doctor’s office through ZocDoc! Haha!
the check-in is fast! everyone in the office is friendly and patient - the doctor helped me understanding the cause of my pain, how to prevent it next time, and how to fix it, along with extensive explanation on how long (and why) it would take that amount of time.
Neyla was really thorough and patient with me when I was in a lot of pain. I walked into the office in pain and limped out smiling. Highly recommend.
Excellent visit. Clear explanation of procedure. Done quickly and painlessly. Clear instructions for what to do after the procedure.
Awesome Doctor! Takes her time to explain options and her commendations.
A caring, skilled doctor who took excellent care of my feet, including surgery. You will be in good hands with Dr. Lobkova.
Excellent!!! She removed my nail and it disbt hurt!!! Highly recommend. She is great
Very kind, attentive, and gave me treatment options i wasn’t even aware were possible.
She's a great doctor, but it sucks that she's always late.
Dr Lobkova was very friendly and knowledgeable. She has experience treating endurance athletes and was very helpful with scheduling treatments ahead of my event. Highly recommend.
Well the main reason I didn't like this office is because when an additional fee was incurred they would never tell you. They added ace bandage to my ankle. I just thought that was normal. But when I left I was billed extra for it. This happened more than once. Once with the ace bandage and another time with something else.
Dr. Lobkova was excellent. She took the time to explain everything to me, didn’t rush me, and answered all my questions. She’s a runner which I really appreciated since I wanted a podiatrist who would really understand how important that was to me and know the specifics about how to deal with running with my hallux limitus. Did not push surgery but discussed all options with me. Definitely sticking with her!
Very short wait, very knowledgeable doctor who did procedure quickly & thoroughly. Tough to beat!
My first impression was positive. The reception, doctors assistants were professional and courteous.. My appointment commenced on time. The is extremely important to me. Dr. Lobkova was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. My first impression was so positive, i will be booking an appointment for my husband as well.
Dr. Lobkova was so great! She was super kind, non-judgmental, patient, and walked me through everything with confidence. She made me feel at ease the whole time. Highly recommend!
She was great ! Friendly,informative, thorough. Great visit overall.
Dr. Neyla was super friendly and helpful in diagnosing my ongoing foot issue. I was in and out of the office for a first time visit in under 40 min. I would definitely recommend her!
Punctual ,courteous ,informative and very nice. Highly recommend ??
Everyone is so professional. The doctor took her time to explain everything to me and gave me my options. I recommend the Doctor to everyone that needs a podiatrist.
Dr. Lobkova was absolutely wonderful. Kind, timely and informative! She has found how to blend her professional, educated manner with a light hearted feel. Couldn’t recommend her enough!
She was very patient, understanding, and clearly informed me of all the options to deal with my ingrown town nail. She did a procedure to remove the infection and ingrown nail, and was very sensitive to my fear and nervousness around the procedure - it made a dreaded, painful experience much easier!
Dr. Lobkova is awesome! She is very kind and calming. Would recommended her always!!
Doctor Nelaya she explain to me everything and the treatment i have to do. She is great ans also the offices personal are great and frendly.
Really sweet. No wait time. Procedure was done well and did not take as long as I thought it would.
Explained everything in detail so that I would understand exactly what was wrong. Very personable. Great front office too.
The problem is that the OFFICE DID NOT PROPERLY GO THROUGH MY INSURANCE and it ended up costing a fortune.
Very friendly and clean office. Very state of art equipment and facility. The doctor was very informative and knowledgeable. Gave me numerous options and my visit didn't feel rushed.
She was very nice. I left feeling like I knew a lot about my situation and what to expect moving forward. She has a very soothing presence.
Dr. Lobkova was very friendly and informative. She helped solved my problem and provided all of the information I needed to make a decision on how to move forward.
My visit with Dr. Lobkova was great. She was very caring, understanding and made me feel comfortable from the start. I had to have a little in-office procedure and felt no pain whatsoever and she even laid the chair down so I wouldn't have to watch. Highly recommend going to see her (especially if you are a nervous patient like me).
Overall, she was very helpful and gave me all the information I needed concerning my issue. Super cool and well mannered!
Dr. Nelya Lobkova is an excellent doctor who knows her stuff well! I visited today, though it took sometime due to having lot of patients today, it was a great experience.
