His Clifton office is great. Conveniently located and with plenty of parking. I was seen promptly after my arrival. Dr. Petkov walked me through possible issues and treatment options in a relaxed and easy manner. I felt confident in his approach and so far I'm really happy with my results.

I appreciate how quick and efficient the check in process was. They have taken many precautions that made me feel safe during the pandemic. Everyone was wearing masks. I watch them sanitize very carefully. The doctor was fantastic - kind and well versed on heel pain. I like that his treatment made me feel better shortly after but he also addressed its underlying cause. He explained what we'll be doing to address it in the long run. I am very grateful. ??

I was met with true professionalism from the moment I entered their office to even after my visit. I was taken right in. The doctor spent copious amounts of time with me addressing all of my issues and answering my questions. I have had bad feet for as long as I can remember. And I've never had such an informative and pleasant experience in my life.

Best foot doctor I found in North NJ! He did an excellent job with my feet. I've had six other podiatrists make orthotics for me previously and none of them compare to the ones Dr. Petkov made. They are super light and comfortable. His office is amazing. He uses high technology to get to the bottom of your foot issues and treat them. I'm telling everyone about him!

As a fellow physician I recognize high quality care and medical knowledge when I encounter it. Dr. Petkov is a true professional and I fully trust him with taking care of my feet. He has an all-encompassing approach and a very easygoing demeanor. His office is modern and gives patients access to all the latest gadgets necessary for a successful clinical outcome. I have been very pleased with each of my visits to see him. The support staff is also excellent.

The doctor was fantastic and the front desk girls - very sweet. But two other things left a huge impression on me. First, the cleanliness and organization of their office was impeccable. That's a rare sight in doctor offices. Also, I noticed them cleaning and sanitizing everything. I will be back.

The doctor and staff are great with children. He took care of my daughter's ingrown toenail in no time. Very courteous and professional service. We left their office with everything needed for care at home.

Modern, clean, and well established office. The girls at the front desk both had very warm and bubbly personalities which made me feel welcome. My exam was thorough and my questions were answered. I left feeling rejuvenated. Dr. Petkov left the impression that he truly cares about him patients. Did I mention that I only waited for 2 minutes to be seen? That's really important when you're running on a tight schedule like me. I would go again, and recommend Dr. Petkov to everyone.

One of the best doctors that I've ever been to! I felt like he really listened to what I had to say and took his time with me. That's rare these days. He discussed options with me and was able to relieve my pain. The woman who took my x-rays was really pleasant and provided great insight regarding stretching exercises. The Clifton office was well-organized and spotless. Would I recommend Dr. Petkov to others? Absolutely!

I was very pleased with my visit to see him. I needed to have a painful cyst removed. He took care of it swiftly and expertly while explaining what he was doing and why. I was given detailed instructions for the healing process. A sweet lady followed up with me over the phone on the next day.

Very friendly and knowledgeable foot doctor. I love the appointment reminders and how well informed the staff always is. They don't put me on hold for 15 minutes like other offices tend to do. I'm also seen on time which is greatly appreciated.

Amazing all around. This office is nothing any other doctor's office that I've been to and I say this in the best way possible. Very inviting atmosphere and staff. The doctor was easy to talk to and follow. I messaged him with a question about my prescription post-visit and he replied within 40 minutes. The best! Most importantly my foot pain subsided within 24 hours and is now completely gone.

Highly competent doctor and staff. His Clifton office runs like a well oiled machine. Everyone spent copious amounts of time with me - from the receptionist making sure that they take my insurance and giving me directions to the front desk welcoming me and the billing girl going over financials with me. The doctor was fantastic! Personable and very eager to help me. I strongly recommend this office!

I injured my foot while playing with my child and ignored it at first. I woke up in excruciating pain on a Saturday. When I called Dr. Petkov's office the receptionist was extremely concerned and arranged for me to be seen that same day. I filled out my paperwork online and was taken straight to the exam room upon arrival. The whole process was very smooth. Dr. Petkov spent a long time with me. He explained what the injury was and how he intended to treat it. He is a very caring and empathetic doctor. I felt much better after seeing him and recommend his services to all.

Dr. Petkov is my go-to foot doctor. He had treated me for an ankle sprain previously. Then last week I had an ingrown toenail procedure in his Clifton office. He numbed my toe and was done in under 10 minutes. He is a very personable and skilled doctor. He explains everything that's going on well. His staff is super cordial and readily available to help too. Great experience!
