I had a bunion and hammer toe repair. Dr. Ghate did a great job. I was back at work in a month (office job - I am sure every situation is different). With the procedure he uses for the bunion repair, there was no need for a scooter - only a boot! Very little post surgical pain. His office staff is very kind and friendly. The wait times in his office were very reasonable, and even on the days where he may have been 'running behind', I never felt as though I was being rushed out of there just so they could get caught up. He repeated asked if I was having any issues and if I had any concerns about the surgery. He explained what he was going to do, and what I could expect after the surgery and what would be the best way to deal with my foot issues if I choose to not have surgery. I did not feel pressured to get the surgery at all. If life presents me with another situation where I need a podiatrist, I am definitely going back to Dr. Ghate.

Don't go to this yo-yo, especially if you are an athlete and need to get back into the game. He is rude, sloppy, incompetent, and arrogant. Eight weeks into a failed (non)treatment I went to the City and was correctly diagnosed as having needed surgery immediately, while I had been going to work every day in PJs on crutches. Nihar basically destroyed the first six months of my year. At least I did not go under his knife. Scary.

He was unprofessional and his office is dirty... He also didn't know how to read my x-ray... I don't know how he's even a doctor.. Someone told me they had a similar experience but I went in with an open mind... BIG MISTAKE

I ruptured my Achilles’ tendon and Dr. Ghate did the “Pars” technique to repair it. I could not be more pleased with his care, personality, follow up and understanding of the injury and my concerns. He listens and cares and is always available should anything arise. He is by far the best...and a lot of other people I know truly say the same.

After walking around for three days with a sore foot, went in to find out it was fractured and put in a cast. He was absolutely professional, dedicated, passionate and not only explained my xray to me but also didn't think I was a "weirdo" because I liked seeing my xray (into anatomy). I feel confident that he will get my foot fixed up and I trust him, which is so important.

Dr. Ghate amputated my 2nd toe and part of left foot and my 2nd tip of my right toe. He was amazing. He was very sanitary in surgery. Surgery was a success. I would reccomend him to anyone. Awesome bedside manners also.

Went in for a permanent ingrown toenail removal was told I could go to work the next day and would just be a little sore from the procedure. For some reason I experience more pain than most and was not able to go to work. I was given a work excuse and managed the pain with pain meds I already had. Once the pain cycle broke I was fine and went to work the following day with little discomfort. Can't put my toe in a sock yet but hopefully in a few days.
