Great doctor, friendly staff. I saw Dr. Bagwe after seeing another doctor for on going issues with my feet. He caught an issue that the first doctor had missed. This required surgery which went great.

Dr. Bagwe removed a neuroma from my foot. Not only did it not fix anything the foot is worse! I cannot even take a pain free step. When I went to see doctor Bagwe and told him of the situation he basically came up with every excuse in the book on why it wasn't his fault. I came into his office and pain and was sent away in the same pain. This guy is a joke. I implore you to try every other option before visiting this doctor.

After I had suffered severe pain for over 10 years with multiple podiatrist visits, physical therapy, injections, crazy boots and contraptions- Dr Bagwe diagnosed me with accuracy within minutes of my visit. He performed 5 procedures in 3 surgeries over the next year on both of my feet. His precision and experience are remarkable. I am very pleased with my results and wish I had seen him sooner! Dr Bagwe is patient and does well at explaining procedures. I highly recommend!

Didn't listen well. Ignored my complaints until I demanded an MRI which showed other broken bones in foot.

Dr. Bagwe recently performed surgery on my son who had broken his ankle during a sporting event. From the initial first visit to all post operative care Dr. Bagwe spent much of his time explaining the process and answering our questions. I love that the doctor not only answered my questions but took the time to educate my son as well. My son always looked forward to his appointments because Dr. Bagwe and his staff were very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend Dr. Bagwe.

Felt rushed. Mentioned that I think I also hurt my shoulder in my fall and he said he'd look at it in four weeks instead of looking into it. I had a torn labrum! I think he spent less than 2 minutes with me. Nurse was short and both of them stood 10 feet away while I struggled to open the door to leave. Crutches hard to maneuver with three shoulder injuries! Never went back.

Bagwe diagnosed me with at bone fragment under foot which he supposively removed but I continued to have problems. He recommend bone stem but I got a second opinion and found out that I have a bone spur in a difficult place that was the main issue. Because he didn't address bone spur issue the first time I spend $$$$ on deductible and endured pain from a surgery that did not address issue. I need a second surgery.
