    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.

    Excellent service, quality care, and an extremely kind staff! Dr Bhalja was very attentive to any questions or concerns I had, and made me feel very comfortable as a patient for every visit. I had a minor surgery on my right ankle. The procedure went extremely well and Dr. Bhalja not only delivered great results and insight; she also made my time as a patient enjoyable, which I can't say for every doctor.

    First I must say Sophia at the front desk is all professional and very sweet. She is a definite asset to the office. I am so happy I found Dr Askruti Bhalja on Zocdoc! I had no idea where to begin a Podiatrist search and plugged in best podiatrist in FIDI and Dr Bhalja came up many times but I went with Zocdoc. Dr Bhalja is pure professional, knowledgeable and her bedside manner is wonderful! I liked her immediately and felt safe in her hands. I have now taken her on as my podiatrist!!

    I really enjoyed my experience with Dr. Bhalja. She was extremely knowledgeable and made sure I'm always putting my best foot forward. Went for an ingrown nail treatment and had some other questions about some other concerning toes/feet things. She performed the ingrown nail procedure with ease and communicated everything I needed to know. Afterwards, Dr. Bhalja was able to address my other issues too. We established a treatment plan and I've been seeing some great results. Highly recommend.

    After living in New York City for 12 years and using my feet to go everywhere, they were hurting. I needed a good podiatrist close to Downtown Brooklyn or Manhattan. Dr. B worked wonders! Turned out both my arches had collapsed - she made me custom orthotics that fit like a glove. They took away the pain almost immediately! Dr. B also made me feel very comfortable - I feel like I had known her for years! Her entire staff was super friendly too - none of the normal snarkiness that we’ve all become accustomed to in the city.

    Dr. Bhaljia was so detailed, warm, and personable! She was so patient and made sure to x-ray my injured foot from various angles to ensure she could make an informed diagnosis. She also gave great advice for lifestyle changes to implement to support my foot health for the long-term!

    Dr. Bhalja should be the model for all doctors. She’s attentive, smart and allows plenty of time at each appointment to welcome that back and forth communication that is vital in treatment. Her diagnosis was spot on and the treatment worked. She has my highest recommendation.

    I took my mother for a consultantion with Dr. Aakruti Bhalja and she is one of the kindest and most patient doctors I've ever met with. My mom has arthritis and multiple bunions that bother her but Dr. Bhalja expertly assessed the state of the bunions and laid out the options to my mom in laymans terms. My mom is also notorious for asking a million questions and Dr. Bhalja patiently listened to all of her questions and was able to even suss out the underlying fears she had. I highly recommend her for all your foot needs!
