My experience with Dr. Petkov was great. The waiting room immediately made you feel like you were in good hands. Itlooks like it was designed by an interior designer and made you feel comftorable. The staff was extremely friendly. When I was examined, Dr. Petkov took his time to listen and explain. I did not feel rushed at all.

Nice staff and nice doctor, but he made my pain much worse. I ended up going to someone else instead for a second opinion.

Wait time was short. I was able to get my x-rays on premise and get a quick diagnosis. They even fit my son in for a check up based on a last minute request.

Dr. Petkov is a caring and knowledgeable podiatrist who knows his foot & ankle stuff. I like that he offers multiple treatment options for foot pain. He doesn't push in one particular direction like many doctors do. As an added bonus,his Clifton office is really convenient to get to. And the free parking is great. If you have foot pain like me I recommend seeing Dr. Petkov.
