Very dishonest. Lied to me about MRI and talked me into getting unnecessary surgery with poor results. Eventually I was able to get copy of the MRI and so that she lied and then put false statements in my record that I was very happy with results. Avoid this one.

Oct 2017 saw Dr. Nakra after a referral. My right ankle was sprained, so she sent me for physical therapy. The middle bone, left large toe, was crushed. Rather than doing surgery, Dr. Nakra took a conservative approach over the next 11 months. This week my Xrays showed the bone is near fully healed. Although I also have a large bone spur at that toe, we are continuing with a conservative approach, no surgery in the near future. I am very impressed with her integrity & concern for her patient

Kind, caring and excellent surgeon - Dr. Nakra was referred to me from a doctor in Yuma; I hesitated the long drive; had five surgeries by other docs but was in chronic pain; I am now 2 years out from my only surgery with her and could not be happier; I am no longer on pain medications and have my life back; god bless her

I highly recommend Advanced Ankle and Foot! I was referred by a friend to see Dr. Nakra. Initially I saw her for Planters Fasciitis which after her recommendations and therapeutic exercises I was 100% back to normal. Dr. Nakra also at my initial appointment saw my horrendous bunion which I have been ignoring for years. She suggested surgery and after taking her recommendation was so glad I FINALLY got it done. Dr. Nakra definitely has a bedside manner making you feel at ease.

When Dr Nakra did my foot surgery, it gave me my life back. I could barely stand the pain I was in and hardly walk. I used the knee scooter for the last 2 weeks prior to surgery. After my surgery, where she did 3 procedures, I’m pretty much pain free. I can do things again I haven’t done in a very long time and I lost 67 lbs with being mobile. You can barely even see a scar. I’m grateful I was sent to her.

She is unprofessional, rude, abrupt and did not even show me the X-rays and explain where the fractures in my foot were! Did not ask me about my pain. Did not take my vital signs. Had a newbie place a cast that was too loose over the area that needed to be immobile, and when i asked for he tech to have the doctor re-check it, she refused to come look at it. Today I found a wonderful, caring and competent doctor who treated me with kindness and recasted my foot properly. AVOID NAKRA!!!

I ruptured my Achilles tendon at work and was sent to Dr. Nakra. I found that she is the best foot doctor/surgeon you can ask for. She is friendly and took very good care of me. I had minimal pain after surgery and have minimal scarring. I am very happy with the treatment I received. I would recommend her to anyone.

I had an ingrown toe nail and big toe fused, both completed at different times. The pain associated with each procedure on a scale of 1 to 10 was a 2 at most. I was amazed to say the least. I would strongly recommend Dr. Nakra both in skill and bedside manners. Dr. Nakra is a true professional and a credit to her profession. Just sorry I waited so long to have anything done. Thank you Dr. Nakra. By the way have already recommended you to several people.

Awesome. She is one of THE best doctors I have ever encountered. I've been a patient for 17 years. I will not let any other Podiatrist work on my feet. I had two surgeries with Dr. Nakra and until recently, have not required any care (the bunion surgeries went so well). I will like need additional surgery and i won't use anyone else other than Dr. Nakra.

Dr. Nakra successfully repaired a torn tendon in my left ankle. The process and care was outstanding. Dr. Nakra took the time to thoroughly diagnose and explain my injury to me along with the options for care. She educated me on what was wrong, why, and options. Began with conservative care. Ultimately surgery was required. I reinjured 2 years later. Tried stem cell therapy. Provided relief for 6mo.. She's stays current on treatment. A second surgery needed. 100% afterwards. I Love Dr. Nakra.

I saw Dr. Nakra and had a left ankle reconstruction. She was very compassionate and professional. My post -op period she made me feel like her only patient. I was seen often and her staff was always caring and professional. I would highly recommend her for all your foot and ankle issues.

Dr. Nakra literally saved me from a life of pain and a debilitating disability. She was my last hope for a normal life, and she did not disappoint. An extremely gifted, knowledgeable surgeon that was willing to tackle a reconstructive surgery that others turned down. You know, when your life or health is in the balance and you feel like just a another number? Well, she treated me with the personal care of a family member from beginning to end. Her moral, and ethical attitude deserves a medal....

Doctor Nakra is a very knowledgeable, compassionate, skilled Doctor! She takes time to hear your concerns and is a great listener. She is a professional who does not bad mouth her competitors and is honest. She was thorough when explaining why I was experiencing pain and what needed to be done to correct the issue/issues. She exceeded my expectations! She corrected my bunion and hammer toe. I had minimal pain and within a few months, I was back to running, hiking and cycling. She is AMAZING!
