Verified Patient Reviews
she was very professional and friendly. I was immediately reassured and felt like I was given the best possible care.
She was amazing!! Highly recommend!!
She is so pleasant and takes the time to answer all of your questions
Very polite and high spirited
The visit was unpleasant. Dr. Amar seemed to be in a hurry and I was rushed out of her office. The office wasn't equipped with an X-ray machine which she needed to consult me regarding my concern. It was a waste of time and copayment.
I felt that she genuinely cared about my well being and I was comfortable with her
It was good she listened to my concerns and suggested what she thought best..should had seen her sooner.
She's amazing! Very pleasant and on my way to a speedy recovery thanks to her!
What's the point of appointment time if the doctor isn't available to see me on time. My time is as precious as hers.
Dr. Amar is always professional, attentive and very personable when I see her. She took the time to know more about my life which in turns help create a better game plan for my broken toe.
The receptionists and Dr. amar were so nice and helpful. It was the best experience I've ever had at a doctor's office. I have a follow up and I'm actually looking forward to seeing them again!
Great service, the staff made me fell comfortable and the doctor put me at ease with my foot issue. Looking forward to my followup!
Dr. Amar is a lovely and personable professional. I always feel treated well by her and her employees. I have been going to her for several years.
Excellent visit. Dr. Amar was personable, professional and knowledgeable. Highly recommend
Dr. Amar is an amazing doctor with so much knowledge and insight about the field of podiatry. She is caring and always goes above and beyond to make sure you leave her office feeling your absolute best.
This visit was not my first visit. I have returned a few times for follow up and I have recommended Dr. Amar to friends. Dr. Amar is sweet and willing to answer any question that I have. We have little conversations about life, as well. She is very considerate and makes one feel welcomed and at ease. The people working in the office for Dr. Amar are friendly and always willing to help. I was one of 4 people in the office at the time of my appointment and was seen within 15-20 mins. As I was leaving there was a full waiting room I highly recommend Dr. Amar.
I found Dr. Amar to be thorough and easy to understand as she explained what was wrong; she didn't talk over my head, like some doctors. She didn't rush, but took time to ask questions and made recommendations about what I could do to help myself.
very nice doctor and office. i did not have anything severe but the doctor seemed very nice!
On-Time and great personality. Got right to the problem and all is well.
Dr Amar was well received. She asked me what was the issue, told me her recommendation and I was satisfied. Definitely going back to see her
After being assured that the doctor was running on time, I ended up waiting over 1 hour. She suggested that if I wanted to be seen right away that I book the very first appointment of the day. She also said there was no time for the procedure I was requesting because it takes 10-15 minutes. It seems that she is trying to see as many patients as possible in a short time. I cannot recommend this doctor to anyone.
She was very informative and compassionate with me about my problem.
We love Dr Amar. Professional, kind and efficient! ????
She is very caring.
A professional office and Doctor !
She was worth the wait!!
Dr. Shazia Amar was very professional but also had a sense of humor which I appreciated. She made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions without hesitation. I would definitely recommend her!
Dr. Amar is highly professional and at the same time very warm and compassionate. She listens intently when diagnosing. She is perceptive, well-aware of her patient's needs and thorough. Her office is efficiently run and her reception person is respectful to incoming patients in the waiting room. Even though I knew I was one of several patients awaiting her she was completely present and focused on my care while we were in the treatment room so I felt that it was a very positive experience: I will continue to recommend her to others without hesitation. Wendy L.
She explains medical terms in simple manner, very pleasant lady, welcoming and professional. ..very warm reception. I would recommend her with 5 stars.
I had a tendinitis flare up while on vacation in New York. This was my first time with this ailment and Zocdoc. I chose Dr. Amar because of the available appt. time and the distance from where I was staying. She was very conscientious and treated me for the pain. It is nice that there is a pharmacy across the street to fill prescriptions. My weekend in NY was much better!
She was great, I was there for something specific but the Doctor took her time and did a full exam. She explained things along the way and pointed things out. I'd definitely recommend her.
Excellent. Front desk did not seem very knowledgable about the doctor and payment procedures, otherwise it was a great visit.
Dr. Amar is professional, kind, and clearly very skilled. I am a physician myself so I have high standards. She is excellent. I felt very listened to.
She was great. She's always great. Highly recommended.
I was very pleased with my DPM Amar. There was no wait, and most importantly, she made me feel comfortable. This was my first visit. Jayden , M
She's amazing. It was my first trip to a podiatrist and she was very communicative and educational... also very efficient. I couldn't have had a better experience.
I never had the doctor how is dr. AMAR. She is fantastic person and very good specialist. I will recommend dr. AMAR for all my friends.
She was knowledgeable and efficient. Her wait time was five minutes. She was very friendly.
She has a great personality! Even knows a bit (or seems to know) about my MS, which is not her specialty at all.
Very efficient experience - I was able to get an appointment within a day, no waiting time; Dr. Amar was very friendly and explained all available treatment options until I was comfortable to make a decision that suited my situation best.
I recommend to all my friends and neighbors
Very pleasant straight to the point I. The diagnosis
Great knowledgeable doctor.
Dr. Amar was extremely pleasant and confirmed an injury I had been dealing with for a month. She was straight to the point didn't try to prescribe any unnecessary treatment.
Appointment was short and to the point. Doctor gave me my options and explained them. Didn't waste any time or refer me for any unnecessary tests.
I recommend dr. Amar and her office stuff on Ocean Pkwy
Dr. Amar assessed me for plantar fasciitis and treated me after asking lots of questions and listening well--hugely important traits in a doctor in my opinion. Her treatment really worked and I already feel much better.
Very personable and easy to talk to, but professional. Was quick without feeling rushed.
Dr. Amar is super friendly and compassionate. I would definitely recommend her!!
She was great an very comforting...
Dr. Amar is excellent.
Very lovely and competent doctor.
I tried to reschedule this appointment online but it did not seem to work.
Super-friendly and efficient, as always.
Amazing. Best doctor experience I have had in a long time. She made something very scary/painful seem ok. Built trust and was very gentle and understanding. She was super fast and accurate. Not to mention very very nice. Would highly recommend Dr. Amar
I was exceptionally pleased about my visit with Dr Amar. She asked great questions, listened intently, and was very clear, exhibiting a wealth of knowledge, in explaining her diagnosis and the next steps for recovery. I was so pleased that I canceled an appointment that I had for my daughter for another type of foot-related problem and made one with Dr Amar.
Dr Shazia Amar Is very professional and knowledgeable.
Dr, Amar is a thoughtful caring physician. She listens to the patient and considers what is best for them and doesn't give pat answers. She is a bright light!
She is very personable and helpful. Great visit as always.
Excellent very professional, polite and ask why you are here today, she listen to your complaint and tried her best to make sure you are taken care off, I took an toe x-ray and she explained everything to me that was shown on the screen which made me feel better knowing it wasn't broken. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
This visit was not long. It was a follow up visit. She saw me, spoke about the what's bothering me and she recommended an MRI.
I really liked Dr. Amar. She was very sweet and saw me right away. The only issues I had was her office was very noisy in the waiting room, the tv was so loud I could hardly read a book. I will totally be seeing her again despite the volume.
The Dr was terrific , got right to the problem and I left feeling so much better ! I would recommend Dr Amar to everybody I know .
She as communicative and attentive. Now I'll see if we can fix my plantar fasciitis.
Easy check-in, convenient location and Dr. Amar is so caring and sweet. Took care of my foot problem (recurrent callus) quickly and painlessly. Very glad I found her !
I wish that some of my other doctors had as good a bedside manner as she does. It seemed as if I was out of the office in less than 15 minutes. I will be sure to return.
She is awesome;)
My appointment was excellent just as it always is Dr Shazia is one of the best podiatrists. She is knowledgeable,polite and friendly
Dr. Amar is very friendly, but I felt as if I were an object in an assembly line. There are way too many patients booked at once to see one doctor, so she is obviously very rushed. She did not ask any questions and sent me packing in 2 minutes with an MRI referral. It takes the office a long time to process these referrals, and in my case inaccurate information was supplied that caused my insurance to reject it. And I cannot reach anyone in any of the offices to help me. One thing that needs to be ruled out is an aggressive cancer, so you can imagine my dismay. I have given up and booked an appointment with another doctor who can do ultrasounds in his office (all I need, not an MRI), so I should have a diagnosis before I could even reach someone to work out the MRI debacle. If you expect individual attention and efficiency, this is not the office for you.
She was informative.
She seemed very personable and relaxed. Her overall disposition was easygoing and easy to talk to. She seemed a bit rushed but stop to answer questions.
She was funny, informative, and easy to ocmmunicate with. She gave concise and clear instructions for taking care of my injury.
She has a fake sweetness about her which is somewhat irritating. I waited almost an hour and she then told me to get some Dr. Scholl's inserts for my foot pain.
Dr. Amar is wonderful! She is caring and kind as well as knowledgeable and professional. I recommend her highly.
Dr. Amar is a wonderful listener and really wants the best for her patients. I have been seeing her for approximately 3 or 4 months now and she is very thorough and articulate. Her bedside manner is so refreshing, she is so pleasant and engaging. She makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. I am very happy my GP recommended her. My husband has been under her care as well and agrees!
She was wonderful! I feel educated and taken care of.
Dr. Amar is great. She's super nice, thorough and very helpful.
Great doctor. Very attentive and knowledgeable. The office was too crowded for the amount of people waiting, so there weren't enough chairs. Not great for patients with foot pain. They were very apologetic but they should remove the side tables and add more seating. Overall, I would highly recommend her though.
I thought Dr. Amar was extremely nice and caring, and she seems to be really good with problems that are typical foot issues. However, when it comes to asking about more complex issues, she seemed a bit flustered. I also got a very cold feeling from the receptionists who seemed like they were all too busy to even answer a simple question. I was somewhat dissapointed with my overall experience after reading all of the great reviews on Zoc Doc.
Dr. Amar is a wonderful doctor and a consummate professional.
I'm always pleased with Dr Amar. Mondays she takes walk-ins so expected some wait.
She's very friendly a people person, knows her stuff
Dr. Amar is simply GREAT!! She is very personable, knowledgeable, and thorough. She seems like she really enjoys helping her patients. I wish I would've found her years ago. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
Dr shazia is an excellent podiatrist and it's always a pleasure and a joy to visit with her.
Dr. Amar and her staff were great. Very professional, easy to talk to.
Wonderful doctor she is very understanding and get to the point of your pain can give you options what to do next love that about her I want to tell you thank you.
Dr. Amar is AMAZING!!!! I LOVE HER!!!!! I wished I had her for all off my medical needs.... She is the best!!! Looking forward to seeing her again in September...
As usual, Dr. Amar was very professional, very cordial and attentive to my concerns.
Not only is this doctor a hottie, she is very knowledgable! She had me diagnosed in seconds with great laughs. I would highly recommend her to any other patients that are in need of laughs and their feet serviced. Thank you Dr. Amar!
She's a friendly doctor. She makes you feel comfortable.
My second time visiting her and she remembered me. She is very approachable and I will recommend her.
Dr. Amar was very sweet and friendly. She confidently diagnosed me as soon as she took a look at my condition, something that other podiatrists weren't able to do. She gave me prescriptions right away and gave me a follow up in 2 weeks. I took the prescriptions to the pharmacy right away and I had a few issues with my insurance. I called Dr. Amar's office back and her very kind receptionist took down my name and wrote my issue in a message for the doctor since she was inside with a patient. In less than hour, Dr. Amar called me back stating that she called the pharmacy and was able to approve me for alternative medicine which my insurance covered. Her follow up to my phone call right away sealed the deal of likeability! I would definitely go back to Dr. Amar.
Dr shazia as always was a pleasure and a wonderful visit
She is incredibly welcoming even for me, a new patient. I felt like she was really listening to my concerns. Despite a hectic schedule, she took her time. I don't think anyone felt rushed. I would definitely come back.
Dr. Amar was friendly and understanding, however my visit with her was too brief and she was not specific enough regarding how to manage my inflamed foot.
She is a great Dr
I have to say this Doctor is just so amazing. Talking to her makes me feel comfortable. Her staff are very professional. I'm happy with my visit! See you soon Doctor!!!
Dr Amar is very personable yet completely professional. She listened, responded to my complaint and treated me with seeming ease. The only downside is that the prescription she gave me was not covered by my insurance and came in a tube too large for me to take on the airplane I'll be on tomorrow. Frances R
OMG!!! Dr. Amar was awesome!! Very engaging, kind, patient, warm, personable and extremely intelligent. There aren't enough superlatives and adjectives in the world to describe Dr. Amar. When I was running late for appointment, Dr. Amar called me personally to see if I was okay and confirm that I had an appointment today. I couldn't believe that a doctor would take the time to do that. She took of my problem, and provided me with the best solutions. I simply love her. We had a terrific convo after my treatment, she was truly interested in getting to know who I was as a person and what my interests are. I felt even more motivated and inspired to go after my dreams. She spoke of the importance to self care, and taking care of one self before anything else. She is just amazing. I am so looking forward to my next visit which will be in three weeks. I left there with a song in my heart and smile on my face. It was truly an amazing experience. Dr. Amar rocks!!!! I am so glad and I am blessed to have found her.. This was my very first time visiting a Podiatrist and she made it the best visit ever. I highly recommend Dr. Amar.
She listened well and explained things clearly. I was surprised, however, that when I told her which anti-inflammatory drug I had used previously that she didn't tell me that she was giving me a different one. I didn't realize this until I was told at the pharmacy that the drug she did prescribe is not covered by my insurance. It was not prohibitively expensive, but I would have liked a chance to ask why she was prescribing a different drug.
Doctor Amar was amazing! All my issues were addressed clear guidliness on my responsibility to take care.of.my injury. Quick and accurate
Dr. Shazia, is very kind, empathetic, perceptive and professional.
Warm, Kind, Experienced, Amazing at Podiatry. She is great at her craft and I recommend her, 2 thumbs up! Does not force unnecessary treatment. Checks in to check how your doing. Finding a better doctor is impossible.
Excellent, conformable and fast, Going to be my permanent Pediatrist

I had such a wonderful experience with Dr Amar, I look forward to going back. She has such heart warming personality and explain things so clearly. One of my best experience with a Doctor ??
She's very personable and did a great job
Dr. Amar was incredibly welcoming, concise, and informative. By far my best medical experience despite being the shortest one of my life, but that just goes to show how she wastes no time.
walking into the office was initially overwhelming and I had to ask several desks to be directed to the right clip board to sign in, but it was a short wait. dr. amar was very friendly and easy to talk to. I never felt uncomfortable while speaking with her. she seems knowledgeable and gives off a genuine, caring vibe.
She's wonderful. The best.

She is truly a gem,very caring and her staff was very kind and helpful. Answered all of my questions and even listened when I told her about other problems I was having. Great sense of humor too!!! I look forward to seeing her again.
I was pleased with her demeanor. I was taken very quickly. My problem was not a major one and she was able to prescribe medication for it. She clipped my toenails painlessly. One of the best physician experiences that I have had.
Dr. Amat was really wonderful! Incredibly nice and knowledgable!
She's the absolute best a patient can ask for from their doctor.
Dr. Amar was attentive and a great listener. I would recommend her highly!
I've been seeing Dr. Amar for about 3 or 4 years now. She's really great - friendly, knowledgable, and generally makes the whole office visit pleasant. I see her at her Windsor Terrace/Park Slope office. It's a clean and nice office, but it does get crowded in the afternoon.
This was my first visit to Dr. Amar, and I would definitely return! She was very friendly and thorough.
She was quick and on point with her information. She made getting a diagnosis and action plan very easy which was super helpful since I didn't feel like sitting in the doctors office all day waiting to be told something I already knew! I would highly recommend her!
This office makes me enjoy going to the doctor..
Dr. Amar was excellent. Coming off of a terrible urgent care visit, she was exactly what I needed and I left feeling well treated and listened to. She is knowledgable and thinks about the patient first.
I enjoyed it a lot. She was very helpful. She is super funny as well. The only issue I had was the location. I was new to the location so I got lost and sat in the wrong waiting area for 30-45 mins and but that was my fault. She's awesome i go back in three weeks for a follow up. She a really cool person very hip and energetic. I liked that being that I am young. So yeah I would definitely recommend her
Dr. Amar is super sharp and she has an excellent bedside manner. She gave me helpful recommendations and outlined treatment options while explaining what was and wasn't covered by my insurance and associated costs. I really appreciated that. Great doctor, no wait time and helpful office staff!
I love the fact that i was in and out within minutes
This doctor is really good. She is a good listener and inspite of her quick and general assistance, I am looking forward to my next visit here. Check her out!

Incidentally,it was the first question asked by my daughter when she learnt that I visited the doctor. "How was the doctor " my short answer was ''excellent " A truly proffessional woman. Highly recommended. Thanks,Dr.Amar.
Dr. Shazia Amar was very nice. I was seen right away and she was determined to get to the bottom of my issue. .. I'm in the process now of getting X - rays. ... But I would definitely go back and recommend her to my Friends and family. ...
The doctor was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely seek treatment from her in the future.

Dr. Amar is a consumate professional, knowledgable and seemingly genuinely concerned with ensuring that you walk out the office clear about your diagnosis and any next steps. Really like and respect her!
Very pleasant and knowledgeable. She made me feel very comfortable even though it was my first visit. I will definitely be back for my follow up.
the doctor was excellent. her staff was competent, but could be more attentive and proactive in responding to patient's needs. it would have been nice to know that the doctor was running behind schedule and given a sense of timing so I could prepare my mind and pay the meter accordingly.
Very helpful, kind and knowledgable. Highly recommend!
Just lovely! Addressed all my concerns and wonderful bedside manner!!
Dr. Amar is a fine physician. Friendly and highly competent. I will go back.
Dr. Amar was great, took the time to listen and understand what the problem was. Very professional and understanding.
She saw me right away and diagnosed my issue. She was very chipper and sympathetic. It was a good experience. I will see how the recommended treatment goes and have a follow-up.
She was personable as well as professional. Great doc!
I was very pleased with Dr. Amar's friendly and approachable bedside manner with our 8-year-old, who is deathly afraid of pain. She was very patient and kept him calm by providing detailed explanations of everything she was doing and by answering all of his questions.
She was amazing. Dr. Amar was very professional, very kind, and very capable.
As always, Dr. Amar was pleasant and explained the diagnosis and recommendations for treatment clearly.
This is the second podiatrist to whom I took my teenage son. We were both very impressed with Dr. Amar -- she was friendly and professional and gave us much more useful information than the previous podiatrist we had seen. Highly recommended!
She is very polite, and very concern of your needs. She is quick and to the source of what's going on , I felt very comfortable. I would recommend any and everybody to her.
Dr Amar was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about my issue. I would HIGHLY reccomend her!
This was an initial visit and Dr. Amar has scheduled a surgery- so difficult to write a particularly substantive review at this point, but she is the friendliest doctor I have ever seen. I understand why she gets these rave reviews on ZOC DOC
She's amazing! Made me feel so comfortable and was so nice. Told me what I needed to know and different solutions for my problem. Great doctor !
She has great energy, very informative, and very helpful, would highly recommend
Dr. Amar was very friendly.
I was seen so promptly that I didn't even have to sit down in the waiting room. Dr. Amar clearly explained the diagnosis and treatment plan is her usual A+ bedside manner.
Very pleased the best podiatrist ever!!!!

She's the best! She listens, recommends and is compassionate. You can't go wrong with her.
I was seen by Dr. Amar less than 5 minutes after I arrived at the office. In addition to examining my foot, she listened to my complaint. She was very clear in explaining the diagnosis and a test that she wanted me to have.
The office staff were efficient and friendly, and the doctor was polite and professional. The visit was a pleasure.
Dr Amar is very pleasent and always helpfull
Usually have a good experience with Dr Amar.
Wonderful kind Dr. very knowledgable and incredibly helpful. Would recommend to anyone. Front desk staff was really kind as well.
Very nice, very personable.
My visit with Dr. Amar was fantastic. She was friendly and super informative, I told everyone later that day I just had a great appt with a new podiatrist, and she was super. We also talked about my husband seeing her, and she was very informative about orthotics. Should the need arise I would not hesitate to see her again, very recommended!
Dr. Amar was wonderful and the office was very friendly. I would highly recommend her.
She is the best doctor ever. I came with a stroller and a baby ( had no babysitter), Doctor took us right a way, examined me and treated my problem immediately. I left the office 15 min later, healed and happy. Doctor is very charming and extremely professional . Even secretary is smiling and very well organized. Best doctor ever.
She listened to my symptoms and promptly diagnosed the problem.
Wonderful as always she was caring,patient and very helpful.A dr that appreciates her patients.
Dr Amar is the sweetest doctor ever. I also feel confident in her abilities as she is helpful and easy to understand.
Great bedside manner, office clean. Diagnosed the problem immediately. Would recommend her to family and friends. Only thing I found strange was having to deal with steps to enter office. Its a foot doctor so I'm sure patients would have difficulty using steps.!?!
Dr. Amar is incredibly knowledgeable, open to all questions and helpful. I would recommend her without question.
Dr. Amar was very professional and answered am of my concerns directly and in a comprehensive manner.
My visit with the doctor was under five minutes. This was totally different from previous podiatrist. Unlike the other doctor, the exam room consists of three chairs and no medical equipment. She felt my feet and ask a couple questions and I was done in 5 minutes. It was a total waste of my time.
Yes, I will very friendly and an appointment is comfortable.
She is always pleasant and professional. Always has information and in regards to progress.
Very warm, efficient and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
She was a very nice lady solved the problem asap
She was very personable and attentive!

She is very friendly.
I honestly have to say that she was amazing! I was very happy with the staff and service I received, very professional and friendly, I definitely recommend her.
Dr. Amar is a kind compassionate Doctor.She has always helped with my foot pain
One of the best Dr. visits I've had in NY (actually the best). An essential summary of my visit: 1) I will not pretend I can be a judge of her skills but I couldn't find any reason to not have full confidence in her; 2) she was informative AND very caring; 3) she didn't rush through the appointment at all.. an unusual combo in NYC.
Overall Very good
It was honestly the most pleasant experience I've ever had in a doctor's office starting from the moment I was first greeted at the reception desk.
Staff and Dr. were very friendly and helpful!
She was professional. I felt extremely comfortable with her. I was there for a consultation but I will use her for surgery.
Got attended to immediately after completing medical history forms. Dr. Amar was extremely pleasant, patient, clear with explanations and gave an overall excellent consultation.
Dr. Amar is wonderful! Very kind and caring. I have recommended her to my sister and other family members. More doctors should be like her.
Who could believe that such a young lady turned out so knowledgeable! The friendliness, sense of humor, attentiveness and deep knowledge of the subject - that's the real Doctor!
A most pleasant experience
Super attentive, knowledgeable and a great bedside manner.
Love, love, love my doctor. Pity the receptionist wasn't as professional and courteous as she was. Apparently, there are 3 different doctors therefore 3 receptionists. Seeing it was my first time there, I had no idea where to go or who to speak to. I went to one desk they sent me to the other desk ( which unknowingly was 2 in 1) I waited for 13 mins while they (veronica) berated a confused patient..mind you, while waiting - I was standing directly in front of the person I needed to speak with ultimately but she could care less. The conversation she was having was more intriguing. I was redirected for the 2nd time only to be greeted with " did you sign in?" Uh!!!!!!! From my observations, this is just one of the many sites that's visited by the Dr. Thankfully I waited and had a great experience. Dr Amar was engaging and she really listened.
Excellent doctor and a truly lovely person. My foot issue is getting better faster than I thought and my visits are always easy to schedule, quick, and totally pleasant. Very thankful to have found her.
If there were more doctors like Dr. Amar, the world would be a whole different place. Not only is she knowledgeable, but she is extremely caring, patient, and professional. I was in great pain and she took me in without any questions or formalities and gave me the medication and treatment I needed to remove the pain. She then gave me a game plan on how we will tackle the problem. I recommend her wholeheartedly. God Bless Dr. Amar with all the happiness.
Dr. Amar was fantastic. She was thorough and gave me a list of exercises to use to help make my foot issue better. I highly recommend her and the McDonald Ave office staff were pleasant, helpful and fast. The office has recently been renovated and is really nice.
She is awesome! I would recommend her to any one. She is courteous, respectful and professional at the same time.
I went to Dr. Amar because I injured my foot. She waited three weeks and two visits before having me get an x-ray. It turns out I broke my foot very badly and even after finding this out, she didn't look at the x-ray before deciding a course of treatment. She also seemed to confuse my injury with other patients--every time (3 visits) I saw her, I had to remind her of my injury and she insisted that I had pain where I had not and that my foot was improving when it was clearly worsening (since I was walking on a broken and displaced bone for three weeks). She should really take notes. Her manner was amateurish, her energy very nervous, and her decisions were clearly poor ones.
Dr. Amar is a wonderful, caring physician. She treats you like family and really loves her patients.
The nicest doctor I've ever encountered. Would highly recommend her and my kids see her too.
She was very friendly. I really appreciated that she took the time to explain everything and put my sons fears at ease!
She was amazing, every nice and detailed
Dr. Amar was and is always courteous, conscientious, and very clear with treatment options and requirements. I always look forward to seeing her and know my issues are well-tended. I walk better with less pain thanks to her excellent medical skills.
This is my second visit and I am thrilled with my doctor, she is super responsive 24/7
She was an absolutely wonderful doctor, with a great bedside manner. The only problem was she got caught in surgery a few times so the wait time varied.
I definitely will continue too se dr shazia she is wonderful and pleasant.
She was great! Saw me quickly and spent time listening and then explaining her diagnosis and next steps.
Very kind and knowlegable.
I enjoyed my visit with the doctor I felt welcomed and appreciated the doctor really understood my pain and the receptionists were very friendly
Doc Amar was one of the friendliest and most pleasant doctors you can ever ask for. She was able to effectively listen and impart her knowledge with a lot of grace. Will definitely book with her again.
She was to kind helpful and also patient and listen to my exact problems and showed concern and gave me helpful tips
Dr. Amar is the best. She is a true healer.
Dr. Amar is very knowledgeable and took care of my problem quickly and effectively. Dr. Amar and her staff make the office atmosphere very pleasant.
Dr. Shazia Amar is a top-notch podiatrist. She's a consummate professional with an excellent, upbeat personality. There's really no downside to my experience with her as a returning patient.
She is a very nice, knowledgeable Dr and her energy is contagious.
I was taken in right away and Dr. Amar was as wonderful as ever. She was attentive and informative as usual.
Simply the nicest doctor I've encountered. She takes the time and is very thorough while always maintaining a very positive and friendly environment. I'm never thrilled to need a doctor's visit but it helps to repeatedly have such good experiences with one.
Fast, easy, to the point!
Wonderful! Diagnosed my issue right away and told me what the problem was. Explained everything and was patient with my questions. Will see again!
Helped me to understand what was happening and made me feel confident that she would follow thru with me to the next step. Instead of having to make a decision on without adequate information. Wonderful !
It was great. She was positive, personable funny and really nice! Also she was compassionate and knew exactly what was wrong with my feet and what treatment would help before she took my X-ray. I'm very pleased.
Dr. Amar is the best podiatrist in NYC. Thank you for healing me!
Dr. Amar is great!
My visit to Dr. Amar was not for major problems. She was friendly, professional, took care of my problems and patiently answered all questions. I would definitely return and recommend
Friendly and informative. A very pleasant experience overall:)
Dr. Amar is probably the nicest doctor I've ever had. I felt as if she cared about who I was as a person. She's very warm and caring and just lights up the room with her smile and demeanor. That alone turned a stressful day into a good day. Not only is she extremely well prepared, she took the time to explain complex terms to me like "pronatia" and "plantar fascia" in a way that was easy for a layperson to understand. I'm so happy I chose her. And I would recommend her services to everybody. This lady knows what she's doing!
This was my first visit with Dr. Shazia Amar, DPM. She was very friendly and informative as she explained to me an issue I have for the past four months. Will recommend her to anyone.
She's very educated n informative n her personality is wonderful I do reccomend her to anyone
It is a treat visiting Dr. Amar! She has such a positive attitude and cares deeply about her patients and their wellbeing. I feel very lucky to have found her through zocdoc.
Dr. Amar is dedicated and very sweet. I am thankful that I chose her. She even answered an email of line after work hours!!
Dr.Amar was so pleasant I felt comfortable telling her how I felt. Excellent.
The visit was perfect. No wait time. The office was clean and welcoming. The secretary very nice and professional. I would go back to this doctor.
She knows her stuff and is always open to questions and concerns. Dr. Shazia Amar is wonderful.
She is great and very friendly. I felt comfortable right away.
she was helpful and really nice.
My appointment with Dr. Amar was probably the best experience I've had in a doctor's office in maybe forever! Her office staff was courteous and efficient, and Dr. Amar is probably the friendliest medical professional I've ever met! She knew exactly what my foot problem was and took care of it then and there I love that she has Saturday office hours and that you can scheduled your appointments on-line. I highly recommend Dr. Amar.
Absolutely great -- only complaint was the wait time, but sometimes that can't be helped. I'd rather wait 30 mins for a good doc than see a meh doctor right away, I guess.
Book her already.
She has a great bedside manner. I've taken my daughter to her as well as one of my little sisters and they were both happy with her as well.
Dr. Amar is so great! Thank you for making my life better!
She was very sweet, pleasant & informative. I had a concern & after she assessed the situation she knew exacally what to do & she prescribed my daughter what she needed. Will return again & I recommend.
Very pleasant and informative.
She was awesome!!!!
Dr. Amar is one of the most personable doctors I've met. Extremely warm, respectful and helpful. Highly recommend.
The lady in the front office is very kind and polite. Dr. Amar saw me right away and has a great bed side manner. Genuinely shows interest in helping me.
I like her quite a bit. She is professional and personable, and she truly listens. She's great.
I visited Dr. Amar because she has a 5 star review that was consistent among her patients who chose to leave a review. Since I am in the service industry as well, I also have a 5 star review and endeavor to maintain that status. After meeting with her, she fully deserves her 5 star reviews. She is knowledgeable and personable. I will recommend her.
She's a wonderful doctor very nice. I love going to her.
As usual, Dr. Shazi Amar was prompt, courteous, and knowledgable. I've already recommended her to family members and would gladly recommend her to anyone else.
Zero to no wait time; you are seen right away. The front room is small, but charming. Dr. Amar is very friendly and knowledgable. It was as if I was going to see an old friend.
Dr. Amar was so wonderful, knowledgeable and friendly. She immediately put me at ease and quickly diagnosed my problem. She was very patient, thorough, and open to questions, and you can tell she has great relationships with her patients based on the way she interacted with them in the waiting room. The woman at the front desk was very nice and helpful as well. A great experience.
She is a very pleasant and caring person. She knows what she is talking about. I would recommend her to anyone
Great doctor with a very positive attitude. Her and her staff are very professional.
Great Experience, she's extremely meticulous. Wonderful patient care all around.
Dr. Amar is a great diagnostician, asks pertinent questions and just a very nice and friendly person. The combination of all that makes for a great doctor.
Dr. Amar is a great doctor. She is detail-oriented, intelligent, very knowledgeable and has a wonderful beside manner. Dr. Amar made me feel like she really cared, and she always checked up on me to see how I felt. Thank you, Dr. Amar!
She is one of the friendliest doctors that you'll see. Everytime I've seen her, she has a huge smile and a very bubbly personality. She is extremely competent and explains the diagnosis, diagnostic results, and options very clearly. Of note, she doesn't just suggest typical Western medicine, but also supports other alternatives. Her office is quite friendly and helpful as well. Here's a Dr. you can trust to help you! Of note, the office is a bit small and can get crowded at times, but who doesn't like watching judge shows on the television there?
Dr. Amar has been treating me for a few years now. As a distance athlete, I have had quite a few foot injuries. She always impresses me with her expertise, skill, and knowledge in treating the problem but most importantly her warmth and making all patients feel comfortable and positive. SHe's the best!
wonderful doctor...i was running 1 hour late and she was waiting for me, very professional, kind, nice, just excellent...i wish she gonna have an office in Queens or LI. THANK YOU DOCTOR...
I recommend her highly.
She shows she cares about her patients. Very caring and very informative. For my very first podiatry experience I would say it was a great one.
Dr. Amar is AMAZING! She is very knowledgable, has a great personality, and shows true interest/concern with her patients. I'm thankful I found her through ZocDoc!
Dr. Amar is the best foot doctor in New York, PERIOD!
Great visit.Explained everything to me.
So far, I like her and feel comfortable. Only the first visit, but happy so far.
Dr. Amar is so very friendly and she actually takes the time to explain everything to you. I can't say enough good things about her. Very accomodating and very welcoming. Glad to have met her and am very happy with the job she did with my foot :)
It was my first time seeing Dr. Amar. She made me feel like I was at home. I was very comfortable for the duration of the appointment. She remained professional the entire time. Dr. Amar was very clear about everything said to me, from explaining about was wrong w my toes to what medicines I will have to take. I enjoyed my visit and glad I found her.
Very pleasant woman, was able to explain my condition in full along with best treatment options.
The Doctor is super friendly, very intelligent, and explains her diagnosis well. She presents all possible solutions to you so that you can make an informed choice. I highly recommend her and I trust her opinions. Her front office staff is also quite helpful, friendly, and efficient. However, I had filled out all the forms online via Zocdoc before my appointment, so other than signing my name to the printouts of said forms and them photocopying my ids, I shouldn't have had to wait 40 minutes for my appointment. I'll be back for another visit soon, though, as the wait did not outweigh the rest of the visit and I can accept that everyone can have a bad day and appointments running over time. The office waiting room is a bit on the smaller side and they were quite busy for a Saturday. There's a TV in the waiting room to keep you entertained.
Had to wait more than an hour after my appointment time in a waiting room that had no spare seats. However, when I finally did get in to see Dr Amar her personality and bedside manner made up for the wait.
Dr. Amar was very professional and has an excellent bedside manner. She was very friendly and approachable during the exam. Be forewarned the waiting area is a bit small and can get very crowded. But, the wait wasn't too long.
Verry knowledge and excellent Doctor.
I was 20 mins late because of train delays and I guess some under-estimation on my end, at the end of the day, and she saw me anyway with a smile. I really appreciated that!
Very warm and professional. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
It was wonderful. She asked questions and got to the problem immediately and now have a plan of action in place. She's professional, friendly, and very open to questions. I feel complete confidence in her treatment.
She was extremely knowledgable and helpful!
As usual, Dr. Amar was very professional and interested in what my particular problem was. She is also a very nice person to have as one's doctor.
Great doctor. Listened carefully and provided a thorough exam. Explained possible causes for the pain in my foot. She Taped up my toes which alleviated the pain and will give further diagnosis after an MRI
I really like her and I'm sad that my new insurance wont cover visits to her anymore. She was good at explaining my options for treatment, and was sensitive to making sure that procedures werent painful or costly for me.
Great as always she makes u feel comfortable
She is an awesome Dr
I was shocked. There was virtually no wait, she actually listened to me and cared, and she correctly and properly addressed the problem! She's great!
She does not seem to be very knowledgeable. She seem like she was guessing.
I had a great visit!!! Highly recommended Dr Amar.
Very happy with the visit, doctor answered all my questions
Dr. Amar is always the sweetest person. I honestly wish she could be my doctor for everything! And the rest of the staff is fabulous too. Such a pleasant experience every town

She was awesome. Very friendly, personable, and professional. Answered all of my dumb questions, took her time, never rushed. Excellent doctor. Highly recommended.
She's just someone I will not see again
Very pleasant visit!
Dr. Amar Has a lovely, cheerful disposition and was great about listening to patient concerns, describing the technical nature of the injury as it relates to the symptoms, and getting feedback while suggesting a non-invasive treatment plan, as well providing information about the impact of a more extreme [surgical] intervention. The front office staff were also pleasant and efficient. All around, a very positive experience.
Very nice and perky! All smiles, all the time, and seems to really love what she does!
Shazia was extremely nice and there was absolutely no wait in the office at all. She's a doctor that's up to date with technology as she even texted me - bonus points!
Dr. Amar was knowledgeable and friendly. Her ability to provide fast and accurate help was encouraging. She identified my plantar fasciitis quickly and had a reasonable plan to heal it and get me back out on the trails.
Great doctor always helpful and very kind.
I am a patient of Dr. Amar. I like that she answers any questions you may have and she is always available. I was able to reach her thru her personal cell number. She is great.
Besides being a good person she's an excellent doctor.
Luv her!!! She is the best
She's great. Really easy to talk to and very helpful.
Dr. Amar is great!
fast, and professional.
It was very pleasant and I felt the doctor was very knowledgable and I trusted her diagnosis.
Very friendly warm and personable. I had a simple issue that meant it was a very quick diagnosis but I appreciated the personal attention and Dr Amar taking the time to discuss all the treatment options.
lovely personality, very caring
Very friendly and genuinely nice
The doctor answered all of our questions, was friendly and professional with an excellent bedside manner, and was quite patient. She quickly identified the problem and helped alleviate the discomfort before it worsened. While it was a relatively minor thing once it was identified, I was pleased to find I immediately felt improvement (and within 2 days I was walking normally with no trace of a problem). I heartily recommend her and will be getting all future podiatry issues handled by her care.
Will definetly recommend her to my friends,she is great like a friend
Very satisfactory. I would highly recommend her to anyone
Dr. Amar was professional, with an extremely warm demeanor. She seemed genuinely concerned with my problems, explained my treatment options clearly, and was supportive of my choices.
Very friendly and professional. Was able to understand my situation and get me the fastest and best treatment.
Great doctor! Loved her!
She is a kind, mild mannered doctor who seems to really care.
Dr. Amar is personable, knowledgeable and took time to answer my questions. I will be seeing her again if I have any more foot problems!
Dr. Amar was very friendly and so were the receptionists. She gave me a few options for what to do about my situation and let me choose. I would definitely recommend her and see her again if needed.
Dr Amar is very welcoming and very informative into diagnosing my problem.. I didn't feel rushed throughout the visit. Receptionist is very friendly ;) I would highly recommend her to my family & friends..
Wonderful dr. Smart with a great bedside manner.
The doctor was very informative. Office representative was very nice.
An excellent doctor.. She took her time to address my concerns. At no given moment did I feel rushed during my visit. Receptionist is very professional. I would definitely recommend her to my family & friends.
If only ALL medical professionals were this human! Dr. Amar is the perfect combo of highly qualified doctor and girl-next-door friendliness. She is gentle, warm, and kind with a great sense of humor (much-needed when you have problems walking!) I felt very comfortable and cared for by her and her staff. Even my 7 yr old very shy daughter didn't cringe when she had to have her sprained foot examined, and that's saying A LOT!
She's very friendly. I will definitely recommend her. She answered all questions without me asking. I'm confident in all she says. You'll love love love her! :)
I thought Dr. Amar had a warm bedside manner and was very sympathetic to my broken foot. She listened and pointed out some other issues that we might want to address. However, she made it clear that her first priority was to make sure that my foot healed and that we had plenty of time to address other issues. She actually makes you look forward to going to the doctor!
She was very friendly and knowledgable. Put me at ease immediately and I was in and out pretty quickly.
She is friendly, comforting and clearly informative. I felt at ease about the potential procedure almost right away.
Clean office. Receptionists were professional and welcoming. Dr. Amar tended to me with a smile, attentiveness and was explanatory of my condition.
Warm and welcoming
Excellent bedside manners, she was very thorough and knowledgeable....helped with my pain on my very first visit Definitely recommend
She was a very friendly person, the visit was very Fast and Efficient.
It was great!!
She walked into the office with a smile and took the time to address all of my concerns. Not once did I feel rushed.
Excellent, as always! She's the nicest, sweetest doctor alive.
Dr. Amar was super cheerful and friendly and addressed all my concerns thoroughly. She was very professional and asked lots of questions to be sure all bases were covered. She presented me with a number of options for treatment. Great doctor overall.
Dr. Amar was the first podiatrist I have ever seen. She is so friendly and well informed. She asks questions, listens to what you say, looks you in the eye, never makes you feel rushed and discusses your options with you without ever making you feel pressured. Her front of the office staff is also very friendly. The office is clean, organized and welcoming. Would highly recommend. I also started feeling relief from my foot pain after the first visit.
The doctor was wonderful. But!!! your website needs to be debugged. It seems your database had my insurance out of network, when she wasn't & I had to wait 25 minutes before her staff straighten it out. FIXED IT
Really friendly, super comfortable, she's nice.
Dr. Amar was very friendly and extremely thorough!
Its been awhile since I had a wonderful respectable attentive doctor like myself I would definitely recommend family friends with foot aches etc.. Yours sincerely Mrs. Welch
Dr. Amar has treated a super-annoying recurring toe issue I've had with humor and great care. Can't imagine seeing another podiatrist.
I was amazed at how great her service was. She made me feel very comfortable and she really took an interest in me as her patient. I would absolutely recommend her to my family and friends.
She's great, professional and very friendly.
One of the rare medical professionals I've encountered who relates to you as a HUMAN and not just a case. Dr. Amar is a good listener and she also has a sense of humor, which is a major plus! I was very happy to have found her and I'm generally skeptical of seeing most doctors.
As always very friendly, to the point and solved my problem! Thanks!
my visit with dr shazia amar was absolutey wonderful she was excellent with my nine year old daughter would highly recommend her
Love the service
(Prospect Park) The office is clean and the receptionists are very professional well mannered and outstanding customer service. Dr. Amar, is the most down to earth patient care doctor I have ever met. She spend quality time to listen to her patients concerns and answers all questions. I highly recommend this doctor she's the BEST. NO wait time I extremely love that.
Dr. Amar is so nice! I read the reviews before going and everything was exactly the way people described. The office on north 7th is very cozy and comforting. The receptionist was very welcoming and warm. Saw the doctor within a few minutes of being there. She's very nice and actually knows what she's doing not like other doctors. Highly recommend her can't wait to go back for my check up!
Friendly and pleasant office staff. She thoroughly explained the medical options I had for the condition she diagnosed. Provided an excellent treatment plan.
For my first time, it went very well. The reception ladies were nice and the office was very nice and clean. I was only concerned about the stairway to get in the office. It was very narrow because of the chair lift. Dr. Amar was wonderful. Very nice and friendly. She made me feel comfortable and was very sympathetic to my pain. She made herself available if I had any concerns and I was glad. I would recommend her to my friends and family..
very professional and determined. I've had a recurring ankle injury and problem for 3 years and she doesn't agree and basically believe what any of the past dr's have said or test results showed in comparison to her own.
Dr Shazia Amar was very attentitive and made me feel extremely comfortable. She asked the right questions and made me feel like I was a long time patient of hers! As her new patient I would definitely recommend her!!!
She was awesome, I went in for a follow up 2-3 weeks after visiting the ER for a fracture foot, as soon as I got in she gave me a quick diagnosis in minutes and made some good reccomandations and wrote out a prescription that will help me heal faster, if you're a skateboarder / snowboarder like me you will need to have I'm your contact book
Dr. Amar is extremely kind and friendly. She took time to explain my options, address my concerns, and answer my questions. I highly recommend her!
Very knowledgable and helpful in her assessment and treatment. Very thorough in her treatment plan.
She is unbelievably kind, reassuring, competent, trustworthy. Dr. Amar treats her patients like her family...she never rushes you; she examines you thoroughly; she asks you what you're comfortable with before she proceeds. I can't say enough about her. She's SUCH an asset to the medical field.
she's fantastic and even delayed leaving for her hospital round for my visit after i arrived 45 minutes behind schedule...she's definitely great, friendly, compassionate, warm and helpful... just the best...can't wait to schedule a follow up.
She listens to the patient's symptoms and concerns, answers all questions thoroughly, and explains the diagnosis clearly without using unfamiliar medical terminology.
Very professional! Also, very eager to make you feel comfortable. She wanted to help in every way possible, I almost felt like she'd offer to fix my car if she could! Great doc, great person.
Very comfortable and professional.
She is a very nice person and explains everything clearly and honestly. She likes to get to the root of the problem asap and the wait is not even 5 minutes. Awesome!
Dr. Amar is, without a doubt, one of the best doctors I've ever had. Her bedside manner is amazing - she's kind, courteous, intelligent and (omg) actually listens! One of a kind...wish all my doctors were this great. I'll miss her when my foot finally heals.
As usual, my visit with Dr. Amar was fantastic. She always makes me feel comfortable and confident in her expertise when dealing with my injuries. I love her new office, too! Very calming and peaceful.
Great do doctor and staff!
My visit with Shazia Amar was very good and it went smoothly. She is very nice and gentle. I would not ever change my foot doctor. When I went into the office she saw me right away and i didn't have to wait.
She is the best..
She's a doctor who listens and puts you at ease.
The Dr. was very friendly and knowledgeable and diagnosed my issue right away. Conveniently right in the neighborhood, too! Thanks!
She asked all of the appropriate questions, was thorough in her examination, and explained her prognosis very clearly. She was personally very pleasant as well and seemed to show genuine concern.
Dr. Amar was extremely pleasant. She was warm and listened to my questions and did not overprescribe or treat my issues. I waited less than 5 minutes for my evening appointment. Highly recommended.
Great. Very friendly and patient. Gave me plenty of time and asked if I had questions about what she was telling me throughout. My foot is feeling better already!
she accepted me even during hurricane days period when no one was working! and it was NO WAITING time!plus she was very careful when removed my ingrown nail part. Will go back to her if i'll need it
Dr. Amar was very helpful and pleasant I would definitely go back for a follow up visit.
Dr. Amar was excellent! She saw me immediately and was super friendly. Please note the office does not take credit cards for payments (I had to walk two blocks to find an ATM, because I don't carry personal checks).
Dr. Amar is a joy. Her bedside manner the best I've encountered in some time. She listens well, communicates well and treats you with a high degree of empathy and attention to detail. She put me at ease right away, made me comfortable and made short work of my problem.
Wonderful attention and service!
She is extremely nice and makes you feel at ease. She explained to me in detail the surgery I need to have, and answered my questions with patience. Her office staff is also very nice and organized.
She's a wonderful, caring doctor.
Very personable doctor, seemed to show interest in you as a person and not just why you were siting in front of her. Will be going back to her.
Saw Dr. Amar for the same problem I was having a few months ago -- she remembered me well (even the fact that I was queasy so she filled the anesthetic in the other room!) and engaged in humorous conversation throughout the entire uncomfortable procedure. One of the best doctors I've ever been to.
Dr. Amar listens to what a patient says before beginning treatment. She very thorough and caring.
She was very sweet and made me feel comfortable. I was nervous about my procedure but she helped me relax and feel no pain.
Dr. Amar is disarming, competent, respectful...makes sure her office reflects those professional values that she values. It was a pleasure being treated by Dr. Amar. She puts you at ease and sends you off with confidence that your problem will be handled.
I am very pleased, as of today (6 Sept 2012) with Dr. Amar is my podiatrist. In a few minutes she gathered the facts about my foot health and made me feel safe and cared for. Thank you. GFScott
Dr Amar was very knowledgable, respectful & courteous, I would definitely recommend her.
Great office and professionalism. Extremely pleasant experience. Would highly recomend to friends and family.
The office was crowded, but I was still seen less than 30 min after my appointment time. Dr. Amar was very kind and pleasant and was genuinely concerned for my well-being. Highly recommended!
She was extremely pleasant, focused and offered real expert advice. She was patient enough to field all my questions.
She apologized for the "wait." (I had only waited for less than 5 minutes which so no apology was necessary). She is so nice that I want her to be my best friend.
This was my second visit to Dr. Amar's practice and I was very pleased with both experiences. She is very pleasant and easy to talk to.
Dr. Amar is one of the friendliest doctors I've ever met. I was seen within 2 minutes and Dr. Amar apologized for keeping me waiting. I would absolutely recommend her for podiatry needs.
She is very caring and takes time to explain everything and make sure you are not feeling anxious about diagnosis.
Amazing. She listened and let me choose the treatment program. Great bedside manner.
Dr. Amar is a true professional. I have never been to a doctor's office in which I was seen on the time of my appointment. It was truly refreshing! Moreover, she is very personal. I would reccommend any one to visit Dr. Amar's office. Thank you Dr. Amar for taking good care of me!
Dr Amar is the consummate practitioner - kind, skillful, concerned. Her (PPW)office is beautiful, and I felt so fully respected.
I would definitely recommend her to others!
She was so sweet and helpful. I really like her and will recommend her to friends/family.
Everything was great and smooth.
sweet and great!
Was in and out in 25 minutes - fastest NYC dr experience yet. Was able to quickly diagnose the problem and write a prescription. Overall very happy with the visit.
Really loved her. I actually wanted to ask her to be my friend. However, her Prospect Park West location does not have an X-ray machine, so if you think you'll need one I recommend scheduling an appointment with her at one of her other offices.
I was impressed with Dr. Amar and her staff. The doctor is attentive, really wanted to hear my concerns, took the time to explain my injury in detail and was reassuring about the healing process. I think she should offer seminars to other doctors on how to treat patients. Seriously. Also, great staff--good combination of professionalism and friendliness.
She was fun, helpful, and solved the problem thoughtfully.
Went very well. She was kind enough to refer a specialist for another need we ended up discussing. She listened and didn't make snap judgements. I highly recommend her.
The dr is hands-on and pays attention to what the patient has to say; and this is very important.
Dr. Amar is a great doctor, she listens and provides great feedback and options, I trust her greatly.
The effervescent, convivial nature as well as the bed side manner that Dr. Amar exudes distracted me from the excruciating reason I went to see her for, Wow! Every medical professional should be this amazingly pleasant.
She is very thorough and doesn't diagnose without listening carefully to the patient's symptoms.
What an excellent doctor. I was seen right away and it was clear that Dr. Amar had already read through my paperwork and was able to start diagnosing and treating my issue right away. I told Dr. Amar I was squeamish and, before numbing my toe, she actually filled the syringe outside of the room to put me more at ease. Excellent bedside manner. Warm and personable -- I felt like I was having my foot taken care of my an old friend.
Dr. Amar was very friendly and apologized for the wait time. She listened to my history and offered helpful, uncomplicated advice. Her office is clean and inviting. Her staff was also helpful and professional.
She is very kind, thorough and professional.
Dr. Amar is the best..
Good bedside manners, very friendly and makes you feel comfortable. Gave a good detailed explanation about my facitis that has been troubling me for quite some time. I'd certainly reccomend her to any of my friend in need.
It was ok.
My families new Podiatrist!!
Excellent!! Great physician.
Shazia is great and offered budget friendly solutions.
Dr Amar is one of the most professional doctors I have ever seen, and at the same time such a nice person I forget I am at the doctor's office. She is interested in my total health and not just the band-aid on my foot. I would recommend her to athletes and weekend warriors alike.
She was really great!
She's the most delightful professional doctor i've ever encountered. Its a pleasure visiting the office as not only will i have a laugh, my medical problems are treated with professionalism and administered within a very reasonable time.
Dr Shazia Amar looked after me so well. She took her time and asked me lots of questions relating to my injury . The xray was quick and I left feeling comfortable and well looked after.
Terrific Doctor! Highly recommended!
Dr. Amar is very professional, and she has a great bedside manner. I felt that Dr. Amar cared about my situation and really listened and she is very caring.
Great personality and very attentive.
She was very nice and she took her time. It did not seem like she was in a rush to see next patient.
One of the greatest doctor I met
The doctor listen and is attentive to the patient care she is a good doctor I recommend her to others
I was so impressed with Dr. Amar, as well as with how easy it was to make an appointment on zocdoc! I made an appointment at 11pm for 12:30 the next day. Amazing!
Very good doctor.
She's the BEST foot doctor, very gentle and attentive to patients concerns. She answers my full list of questions and earned my trust as a patient.
I thought Dr. Amar was very friendly and helpful. She listen to my problem and advise me what was happening relieving me of my worry and how it could be treated. She also understood and told me all the problem I might have because I have flat feet.
GREAT PERSONALITY, PROFESSIONAL AND VERY HELPFUL.
Dr. Amar was amazing! She was incredibly nice, and talked me through all of my options, as well as the entire procedure. I would recommend her to anyone without any hesitation.
She was very professional, and her bedside manner was impeccable.
Dr Amar is the best, she was very patient with me and had a great personality. I would definitely recommend her.
Warm, friendly and informative. She discussed options for treatment, made suggestions and remained sensitive to my needs.
Kind, professional, knowledgeable, empathic.
I wish every doctor's visit could be like this. I always try to be on time, but underestimated the trip from work and showed up 20 min late. No worries. As soon as I was done with my paperwork, Dr. Amar saw me. Courteous, efficient, warm and friendly. Urged me to try a few more affordable options before I buy $300 custom insoles. I felt that she had my best interests at heart for sure.
Dr. Amar is very sweet, and very thorough. She spoke clearly and slowly when using medical terms to assure my understanding. I definitely recommend her.
She's a superstar among doctors!
Absolutely A Delight
Super sweet, approachable, and very helpful. Would definitely recommend to others.
She's really warm and helpful. Her bedside manner is great. Although my issue was never fixed, she definitely helped me rule out several other causes.
As Tina Turner said: "Truly the best. Better than all the rest. Greater than anyone!".
Amazing doctor! Friendly and listened to my concerns! Really cares for her patients!
This was the best doctor's visit ever. She is so nice, friendly and so helpful. She's very thorough and clearly cares about the patients. I am so glad i went to see her and i just wish she was more than a podiatrist because she's the perfect doctor. There is no doubt i am going back to her in the future.
She is an absolute delight. I appreciated her openness and kindness. She was able to tell me exactly what was causing my ankle pain and gave me concrete things I could do to help it to heal.
I have consulted with other podiatrists in NYC but Dr. Amar ranks at the top of my list. She is very charismatic, friendly, open and positive. The last doctor I saw opened with "Oh! I am so sorry you have these feet!" Dr. Amar immediately said "You don't have bad feet." She was not at all aggressive about treatment and expressed real interest in my issues.
2nd time visiting...all around excellent doctor. Can't really ask for much more. Highly recommended.
Dr Amar was very friendly. She apologized serveral times for the wait, although, I had only waited the legthen of the time it took me to complete the paper work (5 minutes max). She provided me with choices and seem very concern about my issue.
Very good Doctor,will continue using her!
She's a very personable person.
Dr. Amar is so wonderful. She remembered me from almost 2 years ago when I brought my son to her. She even remembered his name and asked about him. I asked her receptionist if she was always like that and she said yes and that she enjoyed working for her. It's such a rare thing to meet with a doctor like this. I won't go to anyone else for my feet :)
Fast help and care - what else can you ask for?
Dr. Amar is very pleasant and patient.
There's a reason Dr. Amar came up at the top of my ZocDoc search results - she's great! The wait time wasn't ideal, but it wasn't terrible. Also, it was my first visit so I don't know if it usually runs that long but because I liked her so much I'm going to say it's highly unusual to wait very long. She was attentive, informative and helpful. My "foot problems" weren't something of high concern but Dr. Amar treated it with the utmost attention and took the time to explain what was wrong and how to alleviate the situation. She is also wonderful at making a patient feel at ease and not self-conscious about their feet or the lint that sticks to them when they take off their socks (speaking from experience). I'm already asking people if they have problems with their feet just so I can recommend her!
Dr. Amar is very thorough. She listens to what the patient has to say and clearly explains things.
Excellent Doctor. Great Personality
Very easy to talk to, I wish more doctors were like her. Very nice staff as well.
Dr. Amar was very personable, listened to me and gave me feedback and appropriate medication. If anything she was too positive. When I told her of another serious medical problem, not connected to my foot problem, she assured me I will be OK, which is not all together certain.
Dr. Amar is a great doctor, which is really hard to find nowadays. She treats you like a human being and not like a check, which is what most doctors do nowadays. Very sweet, patient, and kind. Also very laid back, would HIGHLY recommend!
She is the coolest doctor, and beautiful also.
Excellent visit. Dr. Amar listened to what I had to say, answered any questions I had, and discussed diagnosis and treatment options with me.
Overall I had an excellent experience with Dr. Amar. I especially appreciated her concern over keeping the cost of my visit low, since I don't have insurance.
Very friendly and thorough. Made sure that I did not leave without all answering all my questions.
Great visit - she was friendly, a good listener, and very knowledgeable.
Excellent experience. Dr. Amar's interest in her patients is very obvious. She takes time to listen. Within a matter of minutes she was able to give me a diagnosis.
I think she is a very excellent foot Dr. and has a good sense of humor. I most definitely would recommend her
I took my 2 year old, I was very happy with Dr. Shazia. She was punctual and very good with kids. My 2 yr. old didnt want to stay in the exam room, so Dr. Shazia examined my daughter in a room that my daughter picked herself and was more comfortable in.
She was very polite, very kind, made my child feel very comfortable. The wait time in the office wasnt unbearable, I was only waiting a few minutes. I would highly recommend her.
Very informative and great bedside manor will highly recommand
She's very thorough and caring, made me feel comfortable. Highly recommended.
Extremely personable and friendly. She diagnosed the problem right away and got me in for an xray to make sure it wasn't anything more serious. She also apologized for making me wait 10 minutes in the waiting room. WOW!
Dr amar was a breathe of fresh air. All other podiatrists have been old and out of date. She was bright and friendly. She took care of my issues. The appointment was to the point and left with no pain. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Amar was excellent. I am so happy with the service. She's great! Could not be any happier.
Dr. Amar is fantastic! She is very knowledgeable and explains everything to you. She has a warm personality and really cares about her patients. I highly recommend her.
All I can say is, Dr. Amar was great! She's very professional and very understanding about the problems I had.
I saw Dr Amar on friday. She was fantastic. She put me right at ease and patiently addressed all my concerns. It was a very pleasant visit and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a podiatrist.
My visit with Dr.Amar was wonderful. She is great at what she does because she actually cares about her patients. I recommended all my friends and families to her.
DR Amar was very professional. She made me feel comfortable making questions and gave me answers I could easily understand.
I took my soccer-playing son to see Dr. Amar at her new location right across from Prospect Park. Dr. Amar made my son feel at ease, figured out the problem and gave us the solution, all with a smile. She is a great doctor with a wonderful bedside manner. She is highly recommended.
Dr. Amar was friendly and patient. She asked great questions an took her time to explain my diagnosis and course of treatment.
Excellent experience. Dr. Amar's interest in her patients is very obvious. The fact that I only waited a short while in the waiting room showed a respect for my time. In the treatment area, Dr. Amar was thorough and took the time to answer any questions I had.
Dr Amar was so easy to talk to, friendly, knowledgable and I am definitely going to recommend her to friends. I am so happy to have found her!
Excellent rapport with patient. Expert and clear expalantions. Would absolutely refer
Great visit. Very professional. Highly recommended.
I went to Dr. Amar today for my post op appointment. I got two hammertoes removed on my left foot. Dr. A did her thing and she rocks. She answered all questions and has a lot of patience. Dr. A is so sweeeeeeeeeeet!
Fantastic experience! She's very knowledgeable, positive, and informative.
I was seen immediately and Dr. Amar addressed the pain I had in my foot as conservative as possible. I appreciated the fact that she wasn't aggressive nor did she try to sell me anything extra. I'm going to recommend my mom to her as well.
Zero wait time. Dr. Amar was extremely friendly, thorough and was happy to answer any and all questions. If you have any further questions or concerns, she encourages you to contact her cell. I don't know any doctor who offers that. Highly, highly recommended!
It was an excellent experience especially since it was my first time going to a foot doctor. She was patient and very professional!!! She knew what she was talking about and she was very caring towards me!!!
She is great!
Positive. She took the time to listen and gave positive feedback.
Dr.Amar is now my bff! She's great in everyway.
Dr. Amar was great. She was on time. She listened to everything I had to say. She has a wonderful bedside manner - she made me feel calm and comfortable. She answered all my questions. She is knowledgeable,warm, kind and patient - what more could you ask for?
I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Amar to anyone in need of a podiatrist. She is highly professional, takes the time to fully explain the condition and how to treat it, but also has a very friendly manner that makes the experience a pleasant one. She also does not immediately jump to "worst case" scenarios. There is an X-ray machine in the office, too, so no need to go outside if you will need these. Great doctor!
She's great! Very friendly and very thorough.
She is an amazing doctor who really took the time to understand the problem with my foot. Not to mention, she is really friendly and makes the dreaded process of going to the doctors office not nearly as bad.
Best doctor I have ever seen! Very informative and helpful. Definently recommend!!
went to see her a long time ago and she was absolutely amazing! very sweet and caring.
She was excellent! Very personable and knowledgable.
Smart, friendly, and funny, with a steady, confident hand. I think she really knows her stuff and I know she really helped me.
Friendly and knowledgeable. As always.
Dr. Amar is the best doctor I have ever met in the medical profession. I even suggested with her care and personality she could be the next Dr. Oz.
Very knowledgeable and pleasant person to work with. Looking forward to completing my procedure with her. Very warm and comforting.
Dr.Amar is a caring professional.
First time visit...went great. Very attentive & professional.
Doctor Amar is very good podiatrist. I would recommend her to anyone in Brooklyn.
Dr. Shazia Amar is lovely and I would certianly go back to see her. My daughter Ashley felt very comfortable with Dr. Amar and is willing to go back for another visit in the future. She's actually prettier in person. :)
She is one of the best Doctors I have ever seen. My only regret is that she is only podiatrist. Other Doctors could learn from her.
Dr. Amar, thank you so much for your outstanding bedside manner and professionalism. Because of you, I feel great!
She was extremely helpful. She was flexible with her schedule and pro-active about my care. I would definitely recommend her.
Very good and professional doc. Nice and positive attitude. The best thing is that she knows what she is doing. I was cured in just 2 weeks.
Very knowledgable doctor and took the time to understand my concerns!
I arrived a bit late for the appointment and my doctor was at the Hospital next door... no biggie. By the time I finished filling out the 3 pages of paperwork, she was back and ready to see me. She's very straightforward and honest. Put me at ease regarding my options for the bunion and possible broken toe. She administered the x-rays onsite and had immediate images that she consulted with me over... It was nice for her to treat me more as a knowledgeable peer than a clueless patient, because I've done my online homework! We examined the x-rays together, cam to the conclusions together, and then I was happy to undergo a simple injection procedure for the inflammation. I will definitely go back to see Dr. Amar. Looking forward to her treating my foot issues and happy ZocDoc put me in contact with this excellent Doctor.
She was very good. In fact great. I will definitely go back.
