What People Say About Dr. Velimir Petkov, DPM

Dr. Velimir Petkov agreed to see me on a very short notice after I sprained my ankle. That's a disaster because I'm a chef in a very busy restaurant. The doctor's staff was very helpful and I felt cared for from the get-go. Dr. P's exam and instructions were very detailed. He helped put my mind to rest. This doc has won a loyal patient in me.

The doctor spent a LOT of time with me during my initial consultation with him. He took xrays which he showed me on his tablet and scanned my feet for custom orthotics. Everything about this practice is really nice and the people here treat you warmly.

This podiatry office is very inviting. You don't have to wait long. There's a TV, coffee and chocolate. The staff make sure you are taken care of. My exam was very informative. The doctor explained my condition and what it entails in a lot of detail. He answered all of my questions and walked me through various treatments available. I felt confident upon leaving the office the last time I visited. Thank you, Dr. P and girls.

Wonderful staff and atmosphere. Dr. Petkov is a breath of fresh air. He actually talked to me for 30-40 minutes instead of typing on his computer like so many other doctors do nowadays. He provided me with additional literature to read on my condition written by him. I am more than satisfied.

My appointment was easy to schedule. Upon arriving to Premier Podiatry's office I immediately got a family-friendly vibe from the staff. They walked me through the patient registration process which uses tablets. The assistant was there for me during the procedure. Dr. Velimir Petkov is personable and has excellent bedside manner. I feel much better on my follow up visit.

Dr. Petkov and his staff are professional and respectful of your time. They never make me sit in their (beautiful) waiting room for too long. The pillow device and custom insoles they made for me have given me long-lasting relief. I recommend seeing Dr. Petkov for any foot pain. He is a great diagnostician.

The way that Dr. Velimir Petkov's office handles patient communication is superb. I was able to make my own appointment online. You can call them until 7 or even text them after hours and they are always responsive and friendly. The foot care and treatment I received for my heel pain was just as great. I'm really impressed with this podiatrist and his whole team.

The office was busy when I arrived for my appointment but they are extremely efficient and I was seen promptly. I appreciate all the time Dr. Petkov spent with me as a new patient. His receptionist, assistant and office manager are all very sweet and ready to help you out. The office is the best medical office that I've been to.

I lived with nasty nail fungus for many years and had tried everything under the sun. Nothing had worked... until I was seen by Dr. Petkov a few months ago. His treatment showed great results and I am very thankful.

Vesey attentive podiatrist. Dr. Petkov removed my ingrown toenail which was bothering me for days. His assistant was huge help in distracting me while the procedure was taking place. I even got a chocolate at the end of my visit and a follow up call from dr. Petkov. I am highly satisfied.
