Friendly and professional staff made things very comfortable and easy. Dr. Balkaran is very knowledgeable, personable, and professional. She made treatment very easy and effective. I would highly recommend this office.
Great doctor drove all the way from west Tennessee to Florida because shes that great and genuinely cares about her client and makes sure you understand everything
The workers in the office are very friendly and attentive to my needs. It is nice that Dr. Balkaran takes the time to ask me questions and answers my questions. I have had more tests and attention at this doctors office in less then a year then I did in 12 years at my old podiatrist.
I went to 3 different foot Drs till I found Dr. Balkaran. She assessed the problem, ordered an MRI, and when all the results were in, she discussed the problem with me and the course of action to take. Come to find out, I had a very serious injury in both feet that would require surgery. Neither of the other Drs. had no clue. I have complete confidence in Dr. Balkarans professional expertise and I’m sorry I didn’t find her sooner. I would have been spared a lot of pain and money. My advice? ALWAYS get a 2nd opinion!
Dr. Balkaran was the 3rd podiatrist we saw to try and figure out why my daughter was having ankle pain. She really listened and figured out the issue in about 15 minutes. The other doctors just dismissed it as a sprain and sent us on our way, when in fact she had an issue that required surgery to correct. Dr. Balkaran performed the surgery and my daughter is currently recovering very well. We are very happy with the results so far.
Dr Balkaran was amazing. She put me at ease and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about my foot. She helped me get the right equipment to help me. She is Great!
Dr. Balkarran and her staff are professional, efficient, and thorough. There is a positive atmosphere and even with the COVID pandemic, safety precautions are kept with kindness and compassion. Thank you!
I was very pleased with all aspects of my doctor visit. She listened to all my foot problems and had great suggestions. I think it’s helping already. I would definitely recommend this office for any foot issues.
Dr. Balkaran is amazing! She recently did a complex surgery on my husband’s foot. Dr. Balkaran suggested an implant opposed to another surgery recommendation by another well-known doctor. It’s been 5 weeks and he is getting around pretty well with a boot. She is very thorough and takes her time with each patient. I will warn you, she runs behind on her schedule consistently but that is due to the time she spends with each of her patients.
