Dr. Bar-David was extremely professional, helpful and open to questions. He x-rayed my foot, provided brace for what turned out to be a sprained ankle and will be making a pair of orthotics to ease my metatarsal pain.

I left my appointment confused, frustrated and feeling disrespected. During my appointment, many assumptions were expressed that made me question the quality of care AND the professionalism I was receiving from Dr. Bar-David. I was questionedabout my qualifications regarding my profession, my ability to afford the suggested treatment based on my profession and my ability to participate in performance art. I am a woman of color. However, I was next door to another patient (a white male) who arrived after me but was seen before me. (I arrived on time) The conversation Dr. Bar-David had with this patient asked no questions of his qualifications, ability to afford or capacity to participate in a physical activity. These practices felt discriminatory and I would not suggest Dr. Bar-David.

I feel bad for this doctor. It seemed like there was a string of errors from his support staff and he seemed totally overwhelmed. Seemed like he was trying to bridge the gap as well as he could, but the endresult is a distracted doctor—last thing anyone wants. Still, he should have recognized that the administrative circus impacting all of his customers was also impacting his focus and efficacy. Unfortunately, I will not return or recommend.

Doctor Tzvi Bar David was the first and only doctor I had a consultation with for my bunion removal. He had many good reviews about them so in to see him. His bed side manner was so professional and he mademe feel absolutely confident and comfortable about moving forward with the procedure. I have bunions on both my feet and asked him to do the procedure on both. He urged me it was not a good idea unless I had around the clock care. He was right! There was no way I could've done that on my own. I only got my left foot done and was up and walking with my boot on within 2 weeks. I did very minimal walking for about a month cause I wanted to heal everything properly. He also assured me my scar would be minimal and now 3 yrs later I can barely even see a scratch. I am so glad I went to him and would recommend anyone else wanting to get bunion removal through him!! I'm actually now considering going back to due my right foot over compensating all the pain. I feel absolutely no pain in my left foot. If you are considering a great doctor to give you the best results, I highly suggest going to him. You won't regret it!

Office was very nice, and had a quite casual air about it. Since this was to help with prolonged foot pain, due to long long hours on my feet, the end result was setting me up for a custom orthodic. Nicole(from the main office), was super helpful over the phone dealing with my insurance company to determine how much they would end up costing. Hopeful that all will work out!

Our teen daughter needed to see a podiatrist due to a foot irritation. Dr. Bar-David diagnosed it as one off two non-critical issues, said to wait one week and wait-and-see. Not a "let's do surgery-for-no-reason" approach; very confident and experienced doctor. A+

Even though I went there to hopefully get news that my issue was something that could be fixed Dr. Tzvi Bar-David told me it was from the MS I have been suffering from. He didn't try to sell me anything andmade me a mini foot brace to help my spasms in my toes. I am deeply disappointed but not by him if anything he was so sweet and let me know how sorry he was...

He was very concise and patient. I had to wait awhile to be seen at 8 a.m., but I was in and out in about 20 minutes after they finally called my name. The one thing I didn't notice until Ileft was he didn't mention aftercare details; the procedure was painful but quick, and I didn't think to ask follow-up questions on how to take care of my foot afterwards.

I arrived early for my appointment. Filled out paperwork and was seen by Dr. Bar-David. I was anxious because he needed to do a tiny surgery for which I wasn't prepared. But his good nature and his gentle touch with thelocal anaesthesia won me over. They also accommodated my request for a follow-up at the office nearest me, which is also the busiest, on short notice. Beginning to end, an excellent experience.

Great doctor! He seems extremely busy so appointments can be short but if you ask questions, he will answer them and explain with detail. Dr. Bar-David is very personable, I was definitely a bit nervous for my foot surgery (5th metatarsalosteotomy) but he made me feel at ease. During the surgery, I had no pain whatsoever and woke up from it extremely confident that he had done a great job. My foot is now healed and fully functional again with no pain and shape corrected. Very happy with the process. I will be seeing him again for my second foot surgery. The wait time at certain locations can be a little on the longer side, but he's a busy guy and well worth the wait, especially if you need surgery done.
