What Our Clients Say About Us

    Dr. K has performed 2 surgery's on both of my feet, and I am more than happy with both of the results. The service from everyone there is over the top, I always feel so welcomed when I arrive. All in all she's my favorite doctor.

    April M.

    Dr. Karamloo was very informative during my visit.  She gave me a keen sense of what was going on with my foot, what could have caused my issues, and what I need to do. The staff there was very courteous and professional.  Whether you think your needs are minor or major I recommend this group to help with your podiatry needs.

    Joser T.

    I had a cyst on my toe for about a year and due to Covid, I put off seeing the doctor. I finally decided to get it looked at by Dr. Karamloo. She was extremely friendly and patient. She quickly and accurately diagnosed my condition and rather than "jump" to surgery, she suggested a non-invasive route first and it worked! I am pain free and my foot has properly healed! I can wear my shoes again without any pain! I highly recommend Dr. Karamloo. If I have any future problems, I'll definitely go back. Plus, the office staff was organized, informative and very kind, even when the office was busy!

    Robyn T.

    I'm so thankful for Dr. Karamloo & Dr. Dastgah! After over a year of severe foot pain, they fixed me up :) The office staff is friendly, organized and always helpful.  3 months post op and I am back to working out and ran for 20 minutes straight. Highly recommend them!

    Katie B.

    Dr. Karamloo has been treating myself + my 4 kids for a few years now and she is AWESOME. I highly recommend her and her staff. We have not been treated by her husband but I have seen/heard him around office while we are there and he seems to be just as wonderful. :=]

    Elizabeth L.

    I went in for a consultation for bunion surgery with Dr. Karamaloo last Thursday. Prior to coming in, I called the office a day before my appointment for a second opinion. I was seen quickly and the doctor was very thorough, and examined me the next day. My bunion has been aching me for the past 5 years and I was so impressed by the cleanliness of the office, I was also able to take my x rays right away. The receptionist was very helpful and polite.

    Alexia D.

    Last year I stress fractured my foot twice. I was treated by Dr. Karamloo and Dr. Dastgah and they are both amazing doctors. They took x rays and fitted me for a walking boot, and monitored my healing progress. They are very professional, knowledgeable, and care for their patients on a personal level. I am planning to have them do my bunion surgery this year as well. I have recommended many of my friends and family to them as also. I highly recommend this group for any podiatry needs. You will have the highest level of care by top notch doctors who truly care!

    Bobbi S.

    My experience at this office was one of the best I've had at a doctor's office. Dr. Karamloo was very polite and thorough and laid out all my options on what to do with my ingrown nail. Her staff is very polite as well and always has a smile on their face making you feel welcomed as soon as you walk through the door. I highly recommend this doctor's office for anyone no matter what age.

    Flora R.

    Went in to get my left ankle checked out by Dr. Dastgah after an ankle sprain. I was very happy with Dr. Dastgah and Dr. Karamaloo. Both very knowledgeable in their field and made my visit easy and comfortable. I would definitely use them from now on. Thank you

    Shoresh S.

    Took my step dad to go see Dr. Karamloo because he had an ingrown toenail that was very painful. She was very nice and informed him well on what she can do and what he needs to do for the cleaning. The front desk girls were also very nice and gave him all the info needed in advance. He's up and walking now with no pain! Thanks Dr. K

    Daniela S.

    Dr. Dastgah has done a great job on one of my toes. I had this problem for many years & now I have seen great improvements. I definitely go back and use his services again. Great job!

    Andres J.

    Dr. Karamloo has been treating my fractured foot. I highly recommend her as a foot specialist. She s an expert in her field and highly professional. Don't know what I'd do without her.

    Vee M.

    I visited this office last week and was very satisfied with Dr. Karamloo.  She cares a lot about her patients, listened to me very patiently,  and spent very quality time with me. She diagnosed my condition and treated my issue and my pain has disappeared very soon. She is definitely my podiatrist from now on.

    Navid O.

    I highly recommend Dr. Karamloo and her husband Dr. Dastgah. They both are very professional knowledgeable, caring and super nice. Their bedside manner, surgical and non surgical skills are top of the line! I would never go anywhere else I have recommended them to all my family and friends for any foot problem! Thank you Dr. Karamlo and Dr. Dastgah I'm glad I found you.

    Neda A.

    My wife and I have visited Dr. Dastgah this year for Achilles Tendinitis and an ankle spur. The latter required surgery. We are both very pleased with the care and concern he and Dr. Karamloo have provided us.
