Dr. Amar is amazing. She is seriously the nicest and most caring doctor I have ever been to. I went in with really bad foot pain and she immediately knew it was plantar fasciitis and gave me great recommendations. She is so attentive and does not brush off any concern even if it seems trivial. She also does not make you feel rushed even when the office is packed and she is behind on her schedule. The wait time was an hour which was weird and they seemed to be taking walk ins before appointments but it was worth the wait.

Dr. Amar is simply the nicest and on time doctor in New York. Cannot say enough nice things about her, and it is the same every single time I see her. I was seen by the doctor within about 5 minutes of arrival. Incredible.

The checkup itself was fine, but the wait time is ridiculous - at least 30 minutes past my appointment time... what's the point of having appointments if they don't take you on time?

Dr Amar was such a lovely person — very warm and friendly. She asked a lot of questions and really listened to my answers. As she was examining my foot, she gave very thorough but simple explanations of what the likely source of my pain was. I wholeheartedly recommend her!

I had an overall positive experience with Dr Amar. She has a lovely bedside manner and was able to help me with my issue. BUT, I have an appointment scheduled for 10:45 and she didn't get the office until 11:30. She was apologetic and saw me right away. If I need future foot help I will most likely return to Dr. Amar, and dismiss the lateness as a one time thing.

I made an appointment here on Zocdoc for 9:45 this morning. When I arrived at 9:35, the office was closed and there were 5 patients waiting outside, 3 of whom also had appointments scheduled for 9:45. The doctor showed up at 10 to open the office, wearing headphones, and didn't even acknowledge the people waiting - didn't even look at us or say hello. When one asked if we should come in with her she said "Give me a few minutes", walked in, no smile, no apology for keeping us waiting. For me, there was no reason to wait. Arrogant and totally unprofessional is how I would describe my impression. There are a lot of good podiatrists; pick one that shows at least a little common courtesy.

During her examination, Dr. Amar knew exactly what my problem was and wrote me a Rx to help resolve it, along with giving me a shot (painless!) to get some immediate relief! It worked!
