Washington, DC |
I was referred to Dr. Kartalian a few years ago by a colleague, He's now performed two surgeries on my feet and my experiences with him and his team have been absolutely excellent. He's knowledgeable, efficient, sensitive and professional - I enthusiastically recommend him.
in Leesburg, VA |
Dr. Kartalian and his staff are some of the best doctors I've ever been too. I had a pretty bad ankle injury and he and his staff took the time to explain exactly what would be done to fix my ankle and what to expect during and after surgery. It's been a long road to recover but I'm walking without a hitch and expect to be running again soon. Can't say enough great things about them!
in Great Falls, VA |
I was very impressed with the care and time that Dr. Kartalian spent explaining what was actually wrong with my foot and how I can learn to manage it without surgery. I had previously gone to a podiatrist (who wanted to operate), so I went to Dr. Kartalian for a second opinion. From now on, I will be going to Dr. Kartalian, whose judgment I can trust. Even though my appointment was just yesterday, I have already recommended Dr. Kartalian to another family member. Thank you so much!
Manassas, VA |
Very grateful, great medical care, I highly recommend doctor George Kartalian
in Ashburn, VA |
I recently had foot surgery, Dr. Kartalian was great, pre and post surgery. He was kind, gentle and explained everything so I understood and knew what was going on. Would highly recommend him and TCO.
in Manassas, VA |
extremely satisfied with the physician and office experience.
in Brandywine, MD |
Highly Recommend Dr. Kartalian for foot injuries. He is extremely knowledgeable as well as personable. I was very confident having him perform my surgery. (I had a fractured foot on top of wear and tear from years of high heels) I saw Dr. Kartalian in March 2014 after I had broken my foot. He & his staff educated me on my options. Upon my decision to have surgery the TCO staff took the time to have my procedure preauthorized and was able to work with my schedule.
in Herndon, VA |
I have been a patient of Dr. K's for years. He is always friendly, informative and understanding. He states what he thinks the issue is and really leans on me, as a patient, do decide what I want to do next. I don't trust anyone else for my ankles but him!
in Sterling, VA |
Dr Kartalian has taken care of my feet and knees for over 15 years. I could not be more pleased or recommend him more. I refer everyone I know. They are the best.
in Chantilly, VA |
I appreciate his thoroughness and patience when discussing my issues and care. He has excellent bed-side manners.
in Herndon, VA |
I have been very pleased with the treatment I have received. I would more then recommend Dr. K for any foot problems. He has done wonders with my foot and has been able to repair a totally destroyed foot. He also has a wonderful sense of humor that my wife and I have enjoyed. I also want to mention Tori - who has been a God sent when it comes to dealing with the constant demands of a high maintenance patient. They make a wonderful team. Thank you for all the support. You have no idea how much it
in Fairfax, VA |
Dr. Kartalian is a good surgeon and a very gentle doctor. It's a pleasure to be his patient and I actually look forward to post-op visits with him. Things go smoothly in his clinic and there is obviously good communication between he and his assistant and office staff. A man who is obviously happy in his life and work is a good doctor as well. You can just tell! Besides all of that, he's got a good reputation in his field.
in Fairfax, VA |
I really appreciate that Dr. Kartalian took great care to ensure that the cortisone shot I received was placed in the proper spot on the joint of my arthritic toe and that the process was fully explained to me.
in Sterling, VA |
I visited Dr. Kartalian for the first time on 27 January 2016. It was an excellent experience. I had a broken foot from the week before. Dr. Kartalian and his staff, including his nurse Tori, were professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and efficient. The visit was an excellent experience and I highly recommend Dr. Kartalian to family and friends without any reservations.
