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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
