Dr. Amar was super sweet and was able to answer all of my questions, giving me all of the possibilities of how she can help me. She also wanted a follow up so that she can check in on my toe and make sure my symptoms weren't lingering. The only downside was I showed up 10 minutes early for a 5pm appointment, the doctor walked in to the office at 5:20, and I didn't get in to a room until 5:45, 45 minutes AFTER my appointment time. So I waited almost an hour to see her. But once I saw her she was really fantastic!

One of the best doctors I have on my team. Smart, knows her specialty, and superior bedside manner!! May have to wait to see her, depending on the season or if she is in surgery... but she's worth it!

I have been seeing her for about 2 years now. I have yet to find any doctor in any field to match up. She is the most pleasant, comforting, doctor. She is gentle and reassuring and best yet, highly knowledgeable. Pay no attention to the wait time. It really doesn't feel like a too long of a wait as she is seen so frequently checking out patients that you see your turn quickly approaching. I highly recommend anyone looking for quality care to visit this podiatrist immediately. Thanks for your excellent care Dr. Amar. CD

I suggest making an appointment with another podiatrist unless you don't mind having your time wasted. My initial visit with Dr. Amar was cancelled via voicemail on the day of. Unfortunately I had received a Zocdoc confirmation, 2 days ahead, as well as a reminder that day, so I went to the office, only learning of the cancellation when I later checked messages. Giving the doctor the benefit of the doubt, I scheduled another appointment. Upon arrival to a packed waiting room I was informed that Dr Amar was running 45 minutes late - an estimate I questioned since it seemed there were a number of patients already waiting. Of course all of this can be chalked up to the unpredictable nature of a doctor's responsibilities, but it also makes me wonder if the doctor simply views new patients as merely filler for her practice.

After an odd experience with a different podiatrist, Dr. Amar was a much needed breath of fresh air! She was very easy to talk to, which made me feel comfortable expressing my concerns. She took a few x-rays in the exam room and explained what was going on with my foot. I never felt rushed at any point in the exam. I gladly recommend her!

Dr. Amar was held up at her other office and I ended up having to wait longer than usual, but she is worth it and I don't think this happens often. She was very apologetic and sincere. Her bedside manner is superb. I think she is all aces. If your feet are bothering you, don't wait, go to Dr. Amar.

Went in for a quick consultation about a bone spur. Dr. Amar was so enthusiastic and receptive, she really put me at ease, answered all my questions, showed me the radiograph of my foot in real time and then presented me with 3 courses of action and let me decide. She was amazing and the reception staff made both the paperwork and scheduling a follow up a breeze! Thank you!
