Verified Patient Reviews
Very nice and warm, very professional
Dr. Tulpule is very professional and so personable. She explained everything thoroughly and performed the surgery (in-office, for an ingrown toenail) flawlessly. Could not have been a better experience.
Dr. Tulpule was friendly and knowledable. She walked me through the procedure with a smile.
Had a bad experience with a previous podiatrist and everything about my visits with Dr. Tulpule put me back at ease & made me feel like I was in good hands. Highly recommend!
Dr. Tulpule was great, sensitive to the pain I was experiencing, knowledgeable, and practical in her solutions. I will definitely follow up with her as I work on this case of bone spur and plantar fasciitis in both feet.
Excellent! She is very thorough, detailed, warm, caring, punctual, and easily communicates.
Professional, informative and helpful. I went to this podiatrist for a second opinion following a bad experience and believe I have a much better understanding of the prognosis and a more complete treatment plan.
Dr. Tulpule is extremely personable and easy to talk to. She also brings in her own personal experiences to comfort her patients and provide insight into the healthcare decision-making process. I look forward to working with her on my treatment plan.
Dr. Tulpule is highly recommended. She exceeded our expectations.
I thought she was great. Pleasant, knowledgeable and professional.
Dr Tulpule was very warm and friendly and did her work quickly and competently. I would definitely return again.
Dr. Tulpule was nice, very pleasant and with great bedside manners. However, I felt as I had to ask to receive some information. On my second visit I went to Dr. Liss who is also part of Foot and Ankle Specialists, he was very detailed in his explanations, and I felt as I received much more information. He showed me exercises I can make at home, did Xrays, and also suggested that I might need to see neurologist for the foot pain as it occures when my feet rest. Both locations did well with the billing too.
Visiting Dr. Tulpule at Foot and Ankle Specialists of the MId-Atlantic was the best medical experience I've had in recent memory. I arrived and was shown to a room within minutes of completing my paperwork. Within five minutes, which included having my blood pressure taken and providing an initial description of my malady (ingrown toenail), Dr. Tulpule arrived and we got to it. She is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and effective. We discussed my options and then conducted the procedure again within minutes. All told I was in and out of the office bandaged up and with straightforward treatment steps in less than an hour.
Very professional and informative
She was professional, knowledgeable, encouraging.
Not happy with the whole experience as she made me see her for 4 appointments when she could have easily accomplished the same in 2 appointments - considering the fact that it was extremely uncomfortable for me to show up for the appointment due to my worsening toe conditions.
My visit with Dr. Tulpule was great! I was seen within ~10 minutes, and then waiting another 30ish minutes to meet with Dr. Tulpule. Once she came in she was quick, thorough, kind, and clear.
She's an excellent doctor. Professional and welcoming. Kind and Funny. Explains everything upfront and welcomes questions. Provides actionable solutions for short term and long term goals. Made my mom (who has been in extreme pain due to plantar faciitis) feel relaxed and as though she could get a handle on her condition. She even cracked a joke and had us all laughing by the end of the visit.
Very professional and informative
She was incredibly professional and took the time to explain exactly what was going on with my feet and how to alleviate my symptoms. She was also very careful to explain what additional charges, if any, I might incur. Great doctor!
Dr. was clear.
very professional, clear explanation of the problem and providing multiple options for treatment.
She was fantastic. Explained everything, great bedside manner, and moved quickly on the procedure!
Dr. Tulpule was kind, attentive and patient. More importantly, she listened carefully when I summarized my overall health care concerns. She explained her diagnosis and outlined present and future treatment options. I received immediate relief from the pain I was experiencing.
Dr. Tulpule was wonderful and I'm very glad I went to see her!
All of the staff members were friendly and courteous.
Excellent doctor with great bedside manner and patience. I had many questions and concerns. Dr. Tulpule explained everything and relieved my anxiety. She was very thorough in her assessment and presented options to help determine the best treatment and course of action. She and her staff were extremely professional and pleasant. Highly recommend.
Great! She's awesome!
This is my third try with a podiatrist. I kind of gave up for a while until "pain" urged me to make an appointment. I sincerely wanted this patient/health provider relationship to work. The office was clean and neat. I was particularly impressed with the technician/medical assistant who prepared me for the doctor to come in. His pleasant demeanor yet professional attitude was a great combination. As a healthcare professional myself, I was also impressed with the knowledge, detail and analysis of my situation and options offered by Dr Tupule. I expect and look forward to a successful health outcome for myself.
She was very friendly and had a great bedside manner.
At my initial visit, I waited over an hour to be seen by the doctor. It took over three weeks to get my nail biopsy results. I had to call three times. The front desk was very rude and started arguing with me! Finally, the doctor called me back, she was very annoyed about my concerns about not receiving my biopsy results on a timely manner.
She was very precise and kind. Insurance was applied so price was no problem.
Dr. Tulpule was very pleasant and took me through all my options in an easy-to-understand manner. She made a full plan with me that I am on board with.
I really like Dr Tulpule. She explains things clearly and straightforwardly, is always upbeat, and gets you on your way quickly.
She listens patiently and has excellent bedside manners.
Lab techs and doctor were all friendly and efficient. Dr. Tulpule was very informative and patient with my questions. She gave me a list of exercises to do at home.
Dr Tulpule was great! She explained everything thoroughly and presented options clearly. The wait time was always minimal and the office staff was great.
I was very pleased she took her time and explained different things I needed to know so that I can manage my issue.
Very considerate, thorough, patient, and friendly!
Dr. Tulpule was excellent - explained things in clear terms, was very professional, but friendly. I was quite impressed with the practice and the visit.
Dr. Tulpule is great! Wonderful manner and does a great job explaining treatment and care. Keep your head on the swivel for potential billing/insurance mix-ups from the front desk staff--that's my only criticism.
She was knowledgeable and professional and I highly recommend her.
She is a great doctor, patients come first and you can always call her if there are any problems and she is glad to assist.
I had a foot condition that I've had since I was 13 years old (I'm 55 now) which I thought would never be resolved...In a short period of time using the treatment provided by Dr. Tulpule, I now have feet that can be seen in public! I can now wear sandals and the like and not be ashamed of how my feet look.
Very nice, great visit!
Dr. Tulpule was very professional and thorough in her discussion with me regarding my toe pain issue. She made recommendations of short term and long term cure for my foot issue, and indicated the pros and cons of my options. Additionally, she gave me a padding remedy for my toe callus that was immediately effective. I'm very pleased with the visit and would highly recommend this practice and Dr. Tulpule to others..
Dr. Tulpule was terrific. The wait time was likely between 30-50 minutes. If I'd known the wait time was going to be that significant, I would've adjusted my schedule to arrive later. An email that day asked me to fill out medical information in advance (typical materials) and I submitted everything as asked. The problem, however, is that I was asked again, at the office upon arriving, to complete everything again and told that I although I entered it online, I had to complete them in person. This was silly and not worth my time. Other than that, things were fine.
I loved my appointment. Dr. Tulpule is wonderful, took her time to explain everything. Was patient and listened to all my concerns. I will definitely be going back to see her (although hoping I get better) and would recommend anyone to go back. And she's so very competent and sweet. Really personable.
didn't seem very interested in solving my problem with my feet ....she ask me to go on line to order some foot soles for my shoes......I was really disappointed in her service......WILL NOT GO BACK.
Professional, and quick. I did my research on my condition before I arrived, which was helpful, so I could discuss alternative treatment options that I was interested in that Dr. Tulpule did not mention on the outset that I would have otherwise not been aware of.
Dr. Tulpule was attentive, intelligent, pleasant, and thoughtful in her diagnosis and response to my complaints.
She was very friendly! Gave great recommendations and helpful worksheets for dealing with my insurance.
Easy process with responsive and supportive practitioner.
Dr. Tulpule is one of the best doctors I came across. She made me feel very comfortable during my visit. Excellent bedside manner. She is very professional, kind, and helpful. I highly recommend her.
The doctor was terrific and her staff friendly and competent. But all of the forms coud have been done online [and seemed to replicate details I had already given when booking], many of the questions had no bearing on my issue and I had my blood pressure read [for an ankle injury?!]
So the wait time was encouraged by an unplanned fire drill that happened just as I was entering the building to go upstairs for my appointment. The staff was friendly and I journeyed through the back of the building up the stairs with them; they were a good sport about it and awesome under pressure. Their schedules were of course thrown off because of the fire drill and the electrical issues that prevented the elevators from working, but they were so nice and I highly recommend them. It was a wonderful appointment and they answered all of my questions. One of the best doctor appointments I've had in a long time.
Dr. Tulpule has the best personality of any doctor I've seen. She's very thorough and careful, and takes the time to answer every question. She also did my surgery, and it came out perfectly and she eased all of my concerns. I highly recommend her!
I really like Dr. T, She is very good: Careful; yet helpfully innovative and efficient. She doesn't waste time - she knows what, and how, to do things. So many of my relatives are Doctors, and with my particular background, I never have tried a "younger" Doctor. I was pleasantly surprised. I left fully informed, treated for the moment, and set-up appropriate followup. I need to see her again, (this was our first meeting), to rate her again. I'll provide further follow-up if anything is different, albeit I doubt it will be.
I always worry that when Doctors see I book on Zoc Doc that I won't get good service. Dr Tulpule was very friendly and great and explaining all the issues
