How was your experience with the doctor?Nice office location in Riverdale. Friendly staff. I felt like Dr. Bar-David really understood the problem I was having and provided carefully considered advice on how to resolve. He made thorough notes in the electronic health record, which he referenced for my follow up visit. He thoroughly described the recommended procedure before he began and made sure I knew what to expect in terms of discomfort and healing time.

How was your experience with the doctor?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.

How was your experience with the doctor?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 end result 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.

How was your experience with the doctor?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 made me 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!

How was your experience with the doctor?I waited 45 minutes in the reception room which is not unusual. Then another 10 minutes in the examining room.  The doctor rushed in and asked what was wrong.  I told him I had arthritis in my foot and began describing the pain.  He said - Yes, it's arthritis (poking at the most painful area).  Then I pointed out the skin peeling away and he said - Yes, it looks like neuropathy is setting in. Then he said there's nothing that can be done.  Asked if coricidin shots helped. I said no.  He then repeated there was nothing to be done and I should get better shoes.  He told me the name of a brand and as I was looking for a pen to write it down, he tore off a piece of the examining chair paper and wrote it with his pen.  He left the room saying he was sorry he couldn't help.  This took about 3 minutes.   In my 74 years I have never experienced a more dismissive doctor.  I  saw another podiatrist who gave me some helpful information about dealing with the pain.

How was your experience with the doctor?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!

How was your experience with the doctor?When I went to this Dr I was experiencing plantar fascitis and was excited to see him because he had great reviews. Unfortunately my experience was not good. I had wait for 1 hour and the Doctor only saw me for 5 minutes!!!  He didn't take an x-ray and seemed very rushed.  What makes me very upset is that he gave me a night splint that he charges $200 for.  He didn't tell me about the charge, I only found out when I got the bill later in the mail from his office. I was shocked about the price so I called the manufacturer of the splint.  The manufacturer told me that very same splint is $28 in Amazon. This is overcharging the patient big time! Very disappointed with this doctor. Needless to say I'm not paying for that splint. I offered to return it to them but they won't take it because it's used. Beware of this doctor!!!

How was your experience with the doctor?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+

How was your experience with the doctor?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 and made 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...

How was your experience with the doctor?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 I left 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.

How was your experience with the doctor?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 the local 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.
