    I’ve been treated by Dr. Bhalja of Downtown Podiatry Physicians over the years. The practice dealt with my Plantar Fasciitis and ankle issues as well as arch/heel problems. It’s close to Downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan so the location is perfect. In every instance the Dr. was thorough in my examination and correctly assessed the location/cause of the pain I experienced- P. Badami.
