Dr. Malhotra is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and kind. She helped me address 9 years of chronic plantar fasciitis pain through various methods. Don't wait to schedule an appointment with her. The sooner you see her, the better you will start to feel!

I came to Dr. Malhotra with a broken bone in my foot the Friday before Thanksgiving...not only did she repair my foot before the holiday, but she's followed me through no weight, the boot and PT to walk again without a limp in 3 months! I'm more than thrilled and would recommend her to all who need help with their feet or ankles!

Unbelievable pt centered staff overall Had gone to different podiatrists prior to seeing Dr Malhotra and was totally unsatisfied with their explanations and the treatment they provided I have been getting long term treatment for the same condition and each visit she continues to take the time to listen and to describe what the next steps are as well as listen to my thoughts and concerns At the end of the day have tremendous trust in her capabilities and glad to be under her care

I was able to run the Disney and Boston Marathons thanks to Dr. M. I had been seeing a different doctor and was recommended to Dr. Malhotra by my running store. She made me orthotics and not only that but went over an injury prevention protocol. I had no idea I was also deficient in vitamin D and nearly avoided a stress fracture. It takes a special kind of patience to treat a hard headed runner (my fellow runners know what I mean!) If you are trying to stay active and healthy she's the best!!

I chuckled at the previous comment. Some people think they know more than the doctors, come in with a nasty attitude, and demand treatments they found on Google. Glad he went elsewhere! Dr. Malhotra is a life saver. My entire family, including my children, have been coming to her for years. She is the only doctor who will explain everything to the T, and will do what is right. If you actually listen to her and follow instructions, you will be doing yourself a favor. Wonderful experience.

worst doctor's office I've ever been to, made an appointment and had to wait for 2 hrs to be seen, 3 different doctors came in to the room not knowing if I was their patient or not, I was finally seen by Dr. Malhotra, she immediately ordered an unnecessary MRI for a cyst on my toe that was infected and refused to drain it, so ended up going to a real Podiatrist and got the right treatment, cost me more but got it taken care of. After a fews I get a bill for their poor services, so I tried to cal

Excellent experience all around. I came to Dr. Malhotra with Achilles tendon rupture. She clearly explained the specific nature of my injury, laid out options for me to consider, and made professional recommendations. She provided specific instructions and timeline during the healing process, and I have had a successful recovery from the rupture. I would highly recommend Dr. Malhotra to my family and friends.

Dr. Malhotra is amazing. She will get you back on your feet the right way. She treats her own patients from the start, as opposed to other places where you may see an assistant. If you are looking for forward-thinking care, I highly recommend her!

Dr. Malhotra is batting 1000 in these reviews for good reason. She's terrific. Wait time seems to vary depending on the physician; I never waited long for Dr. Malhotra.

I came to Dr. Malhotra with an ingrown (and infected) toenail and received a diagnosis and treatment right away. I had minimal pain during the procedure, and was walking normally within a few days (after weeks of my toe hurting). In fact, I ran in a 5K race with no ill effects a week and a half later! Several months after this I had the same issue on my opposite foot and there was no question where I was going for treatment. I recommend Dr. Malhotra and Arthritis & Sports to anyone.

Dr. Malhotra performed surgery on my foot, this was the third one for me - first one with her. My previous surgeries had been with orthopedists. I had less pain and a faster recovery with this surgery than the previous two. She had new ways to get cartilage to grow back and other techniques that resulted in a positive outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Malhotra for anything needed on your foot or ankle. She is wonderful to work with, listens and thoughtfully recommends the right path forward.

After my injury, I began to receive care from a doctor which turned out to be inadequate. I came to Dr. Malhotra for a second opinion. Her level of communication, care, professionalism, and most importantly knowledge on the subject matter is unmatched in the medical arena. Thanks solely to Dr. Malhotra and her expertise, I made stunning progress in a short amount of time and am now completely recovered. I will travel any distance for a trustworthy doctor, and she is that. She has a genuine heart

I came to Dr. Malhotra with an existing condition in which I had been getting ineffective treatment for seven months with another orthopedic in a different practice. She spent a lot of time assessing my injury and asking meticulous questions to formulate an exact diagnosis and treatment plan. She was very thorough in her explanation to me about my injury and as well as what the necessary steps both she and I needed to do to get me back to being pain free and active. Awesome experience.

Dr Malhotra is an excellent doctor.What makes her special is the personal interest she showed when taking care of my feet.The initial X-rays, examination etc was well done.She explained to me that I have no major issues but a small bunion and recommended for comfort/long term health of my feet to wear orthotics ( inserts).I did this and was thrilled how wonderful my feet felt not to mention I am able to wear high heels for extended time without experiencing any pain later!!Thanks Dr.Malhotra.

Excellent experience; she explained diagnosis and shared pictures of x-ray, pointing out the break. She provided specific instructions on how to best care for my injury and managed my expectations in terms of time in cast, boot, etc.
