Absolutely love Dr. Iyengar she is very knowledgeable and her bedside manners are great she is a compassionate and caring Doctor. I wish Tuscaloosa Alabama had her practicing here but the one hour drive to Birmingham to have her treat my needs is something I do not mind doing to be able to see a Doctor of her caliber.

Do Not Go To This Person. She performed a Completely unnecessary surgery on me. I found out later that there is NO SUCH THING as a surgery to repair plantar fasciitis. She is a terrible doctor. She has ZERO oversite from Dr. Lemak. This surgery has negatively changed my life significantly.

On July 25th a sustained a severe ankle injury. I was able to meet Dr Iyengar the next day and she performed 2 procedures on my ankle. One to stabilize my talus fracture to give my foot time to reduce swelling, then the surgery to fix my terrible fractures. She is an AMAZING physician and surgeon. She took on the not-so-easy task of fixing my talus bone. If you don’t know right off, it’s one of three bones in your body that you don’t want to break. I knew that I was in good hands from the start. She has such a wonderful bedside manner, and she is very thorough in explaining how the process will be as well as recovery time. As a surgical technician, I have worked along side many different surgeons and personalities. Dr. Iyengar is by far one of the most genuine, and down to earth physicians I have ever met. I’m so thankful that she was able to fix my ankle. I will recommend her to anyone who may have ortho issues needing surgery.

I went to Dr Kavita Iyengar by referral from previous practice. She said due to the 5 hour travel to see her see would see me on Fridays. This lasted until after the surgery. Numerous calls to her and her assistant were not answered. I was diagnosed with dry gangrene of the large toe due to the wrap I received at her clinic. No call from me was returned so I had to beg doctors in my area to treat it. I am now in the process of having additional surgery

I required highly complex fusion surgeries on both ankles.I interviewed 3 surgeons before selecting Dr. Iyengar. She was most thorough in assessing my problem and explaining her surgical plan for me. Under Dr. Iyengar's expert care I received 100% pain relief &improved function from crippling PTTD (posterior tibial tendon deficiency.) Foot/ankle surgery is complicated-don't trust it to anyone but the best. Dr. Iyengar is an excellent surgeon and genuinely cares for her patients.

Very pleased with the outcome of my surgery and follow up care. I had seen other specialist over the years, with no good results. She diagnosed accurately, treated, and my pain is gone! I would highly recommend Dr. Iyengar for anyone with foot or ankle issues.
