Dr Aziz is a very caring compassionate doctor. I went to Dr Aziz for a toenail fungus. My regular doctor recommended kerasil which didn’t work. After a year of getting frustrated, I read another persons yelp describing my exact problem and they were recommending Dr Aziz. I saw she had all 5’s on her yelp reviews so I made an appointment. Once I met Dr Aziz I knew I was in the right place. I feel like I’ve known her all my life. She treats her patients as if they were family. She gave me a few options and I chose the laser treatment plus a prescribed topical medicine. The medicine is alcohol based so I can keep nail polish on during the treatment. That was huge since I didn’t want the fungus to be seen. Dr Aziz said it would take 6 laser treatments but after only 4 the fungus is gone!!! I’m still going back for the final treatments. Dr Aziz is very thorough and committed to giving quality care...no short cuts. I appreciate how caring she is. I wish she was my primary care doctor . Thank you Dr. Aziz you make going to the doctor easy!!! Sherrie

First and foremost it's hard to say where to start. So I'll start with the making of the appointment. Her front office staff Trisha is especially nice and friendly. It was very easy to get the appointment scheduled without having to wait months. Upon arrival the staff was very pleasant and accommodating.Next I got put in the room and I was asked a few questions before the doctor saw me.Once the doctor came in the room her demeanor was very pleasant, warm and welcoming. Dr Aziz listened to everything I said. Then she made her diagnosis. She spends as much time as she needs to discuss the procedure and cause. Within minutes of talking with her, I felt like she completely understood what wasgoing on, was not dismissive, was very accommodating, very sympathetic, and very knowledgeable.I was able to schedule the procedure fairly quickly. Trisha did a great job of pre authorizing through my insurance and they also will give you the procedure code should you need them?I went in for the procedure and she spent quite a bit of time explaining every step of what she was doing and the precautions that I should take and the care I should manage.The follow-up visit was just as much fun. She is such a hoot. If you don't laugh, you have no funny bone.The office does a great job of submitting this to insurance. I might remind all those out there that a doctor does not have to submit through your insurance on your behalf. It is your responsibility. It is a benefit and luxury that they do that for you.At the end of the day, I would highly recommend her to anyone who has any issues with your feet. You can't find a more knowledgeable happier and accommodating doctor then Dr. Aziz! #SoulSister

I wish I had found Dr. Aziz before I had surgery on my ankle. But that was back in Connecticut 4 years ago. I am grateful that I found Dr. Aziz now, as she changed my life. I had a debridiment surgery in the left talonavicular joint, and, in addition, my left leg is shorter from the old hip injury. I had difficulty walking any long distance. And recently, even a short walk started to cause so much pain that I would avoid walking. Dr. Aziz suggested making special shoe inserts for me to adjust for changes in my foot due to ankle surgery and the difference in left and right sides. Dr. Aziz explained that it could take time to get used to these inserts, as my foot and leg were in a different position for a long time. And, yes, initially, it was quite uncomfortable to walk with these inserts. it took several weeks to correct the misalignements formed over the years. However, after several weeks I could walk long distances with these inserts without any pain. As a matter of fact, I went to a hiking trip to Portugal and was able to walk 10-15 miles every day for over 2 weeks! The result of the treatment by Dr. Aziz is just short of a miracle. Thank you so much to Dr. Aziz! What an amazing transformation, I could enjoy an active life again!

We love Dr. Aziz! She has been treating my daughter for more than 2 years for all her foot and ankle injuries due being a competitive gymnast. She used PRP 2 years ago to heal a ligament tear and that saved my daughters season and we used it again this week for a severe ankle sprain with the goal of competing in January again. She also used PRP on my father who tore a ligament in his foot which an orthopedic surgeon misdiagnosed. The PRP allowed him back on the golf course within 2 weeks with saved everyone in our family from his grumpiness. I am a registered nurse and have a history in sports medicine and I believe PRP is allowing my family to heal quicker and stronger.

Only one thing works, laser treatment over a long period of time combined with a topical solution. This process can take up to one or two years. There is NO quick fix with vinegar, garlic or anything else. Laser treatments every other month. Been doing laser with Dr. Aziz for over a year and one half, had all ten toes infected, because I waited too long. They are now beginning to grow back. 1-4 laser treatments WILL NOT BE EFFECTIVE. Need long term laser with a topical. Don't do QUICK fix treatments, you will never get rid off it and you will lose all your nails.

Im updating my review from a year and a half ago. Dr. Aziz is kind and compassionate which I so appreciate with my ongoing foot issues! She is professional as well as knowledgeable, patient and funny. She spends time getting to know patients individually and answering questions. Having said that, my issue is with the billing and how long it takes to be reimbursed by the office. It isn't an issue with my insurance as I have records they paid the office soon after my appointment ordering orthotics. After waiting over 2 months to be reimbursed, I finally contacted the office. I was told the check could be picked up and amount I was receiving was less than what my insurance said I should be receiving. When I asked at the front desk about it told there was a small "balance" on my account but they didn't know what it was for. They said they would check with billing and get back to me. Still waiting to hear. Taking off a star because of this recent experience.

Dr. Aziz is the third podiatrist I’ve seen for plantar fibroma and for only positive reasons, will definitely be the last. Her staff is extremely competent, friendly and helpful. After only one appointment with Dr. Aziz I realized that she is by far the most knowledgeable, personable and caring doctor I could have asked for. She took more than enough time to explain my condition to me in detail as well as the treatment plan she would implement for me, all while making sure I understood everything throughout. She told me right away that she would absolutely not do surgery for my condition because of the high level of risk involved, which I very much appreciated for more than one reason. Other than her high level of education, expertise and experience, If you’re looking for a podiatrist that will treat you as more than just another number, I would highly recommend Dr. Aziz!

Dr Aziz has great bed side manner and truly cares. I had a lot of pain before and after a procedure and she helped make sure I was healing well and was available for questions. Thankfully I’m healing up well and I would definitely recommend her and see her again.

I've been seeing Dr Aziz for nearly 3 years for various issues with my feet. During this time she has made me feel like family. She always ask me how I'm doing and she sincerely wants to know. It doesn't matter if its my feet or my personal issues; she takes the time and listens to what I have to say. My feet are much better thanks to Dr. Aziz. I've never met a Doctor who is so loyal and genuine. She's lovely!
