What People Say About Dr. Kavita Iyengar, MD

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.
