My 12 year old son was very nervous about having his ingrown toenail fixed. He had many questions and concerns to which Dr. Chokan patiently and thoroughly answered, setting my son at ease with his kindness.

Actually went to him for a second opinion. Discussed everything that needed repaired in my foot and ankle. Office staff was helpful . Dr Chokan spoke to my husband immediately post surgery and explained entire procedure. We knew what to expect for follow up care and PT. I am so grateful to Dr Chokan for giving me the ability to walk again without having to wear an ankle brace.

Dr. Chokan is extremely insightful and is willing to try different treatments when one doesn’t work. He found my heal spurs and continues to try different treatments to relive my pain. I am very grateful and recommend him highly.

He did a ankle replacement on me. Now I have foot pain. When I told him it was like he wasn't listening to me. Said it takes time. Well how much time? He also set me up for orthopedic before my surgery and ha# to get new ones made. When I called to check the lady said she don't have them yet. But qas very rude after saying that and just hung up! Didn't say bye or if there was anything else I needed ??! That was not Professional At ALL!

The staff doesn't wear their masks correctly. They are all just complying. I've seen toilet paper thicker than the masks they wear. During a pandemic you're supposed to trust health care offices not be afraid of people working at them.

My appointment was for 5:15. At 6:20 I had still not seen the doctor. To make matters worse, I was told to come in 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork since it was my first visit. So, I actually arrived at 5:00, then sat there growing more annoyed by the minute as I was basically shut away in a small room for over an hour. After waiting for one hour, twenty minutes I was finally disgusted enough to leave. The receptionist apologized, but did not offer to reschedule. There is absolutely no excuse that a patient should have to wait this long to be seen.

Dr.Chokan saved my life. For years I was walking on my toes inside my shoes due to plantar faciitis. I've seen other doctors before, but all they did was appease the situation. Once I met Dr. Chokan, he explained immediately what can be done. After my surgeries; I'm very proud to say, I can walk with no pain whatsoever.. Thanks to Dr. Chokan. He is the best and so is his amazing staff.

Dr. Chokan and his staff are awesome! I had a pin inserted into my toe to straighten it, and he explained the procedure very thoroughly in layman's terms. The day after the surgery, his staff called to check on me. When I had some concerns about the pin coming out, he reassured me and had me come in for xrays to make sure it was in place. Whenever I had a question, he would text me within 25 minutes with an answer. I can't say enough good things about him and his staff.

Dr. Chokan is awesome! Has patience as I can be stubborn. :) Had surgery on my heel and he has been absolutely wonderful with me as I didn't want to use the crutches. His staff and nurses are wonderful as well, everyone really seems to care about you as a person and I never feel rushed. My daughter has seen Dr. Chokan as well and my Diabetic 1 Husband and we couldn't be more happy with Dr. Chokan. Would highly recommend him!!!

He harvested bone from my wife's heel to repair her toes. He took too much heel bone and the heel bone fractured through. In a follow up surgery he put 3 large screws into the heel. It never healed, in fact it actually split it two. She can't walk and now he refuses to see her. They will not return our calls. Attorney thinks they are stalling to run out the statute of limitations on a possible malpractice suit. He performs operations like he is in a hot dog eating contest.
