About Dr. Patel

Dr. Rahul Patel, DPM is a highly trained podiatrist/foot and ankle surgeon with offices in Flushing, Queens and Gramercy Park, Manhattan, NYC. His primary training is in foot surgery and reconstructive rearfoot & ankle surgery but he also focuses on non-surgical podiatric needs such as diabetic foot care, heel pain, ingrown/fungal toenails, warts, and foot and ankle injuries. He also has an extensive knowledge in proper footwear for runners, basketball, and tennis athletes which he uses as part of his comprehensive treatment protocols.

Dr. Patel graduated from undergrad at NYU, followed by the New York College of Podiatric Medicine (NYCPM) in 2001 with a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (D.P.M.) degree. He began a comprehensive Podiatric Medicine and Surgery residency program at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip, New York, finishing four years later as chief resident in July 2005 and earning Resident of The Year honors among his peers across several hospitals in NYC. His surgical training encompassed everything from elective surgery (bunions, hammertoes, etc) to trauma and clubfoot deformities. He is also trained in wound care and hyperbaric oxygen treatment.

Dr. Patel has also lectured at various hospitals and in 2001, provided abstracts for the Compendium of Foot and Ankle Surgery.

I am new to the area and Dr. Patel was highly recommended to me by another doctor. I was having different problems in both feet. Dr. Patel diagnosed both quickly and offered immediate solutions. He is very knowledgable and took a lot of time to explain what was going on. He also sent me numerous texts to help me understand and research the problems more thoroughly. I was impressed. He is very friendly and at the same time very professional. He has already got me on the road to recovery. I will definitely be going back. Highly recommended!!

Good personality and easy to talk to. I just wish the hallway to his office wasn't so narrow for the wheelchair and there are a few steps to walk down but the office is on the first floor.

This was my first time visiting a podiatrist, and Dr. Patel made it incredibly relaxed and light hearted. I came in with issues of numb toes and dull pain, and he was able to identify things about my feet that I never knew, and recommended footwear to prevent future damage as well as possible procedures that I might need in the future. As one reviewer stated, he is quite the sneaker expert. This was an overall good experience, would certainly recommend.
