Saw Dr Aziz for my daughter's foot issue. Dr Aziz explained the mechanics of the foot in a way I understood and was very thorough. She took her time and treated us great!! I would highly recommend her.

Best experience ever, being new to the community and a new patient, I felt like I was a part of the family, from the staff to meeting Dr. Aziz. Very friendly and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend them !!

Thank god I found Dr. Aziz. I first met Dr. Aziz after a sparring injury a couple of years ago. Following an MRI to confirm that I had torn two ligaments in my ankle, Dr. Aziz discussed different options including PRP (platelet-rich plasma), Stem cells etc. Dr. Aziz is amazing, she is a big believer in using the best available technology to help the body heal itself as opposed to invasive surgeries and I love her for that. She was not rushed at all and took the time to explain each option. I ended up getting one treatment of PRP. I really liked the PRP option because it only involved taking a draw of my own blood, separating out the best parts of my blood and re-injecting into the injured area. It worked amazingly. Three weeks after PRP I was training and doing ring work again.I recently went back to Dr. Aziz for a separate injury after partially tearing a sesamoid ligament and marrow edema by my big toe. I received PRP treatment again and I'm back to training after just under two weeks, this time. Dr. Aziz is the best. Dr. Aziz uses the "Zimmer Biomet PRP kit" which is the same quality used for treating elite athletes in the NFL, NBA and combat sports.

I have to say sometimes reviews meet jack but I checked out Dr. Aziz reviews before I went along with others and the reviews are spot on, Dr. Aziz is so knowledgeable and does not BS you, she makes sure you get the best treatment and explains everything to you. I have a tear in my Achilles Tendon and she gave me 3 options for it I took the least evasive which was PRP and after 2 weeks my tendon is healed not completely but so much better that she referred me to PT. Also worked on my toe Fungus (not something to admit to having lol) but she said to try the laser treatment which is very reasonably priced and she makes sure you to 5-6 treatment's over the year- this instead of harmful cheap alternative Lamasil.

Had my first consultation with Dr Aziz today.I was really impressed by everything and everyone. The staff are fantastic and have a great sense of humor as well as being thoroughly professional at what they do. (Especially the girl in the elf hat, she was awesome!) A very pleasant Drs office indeed. My problem was xrayed, examined and diagnosed very well and we had a solution before I left the office. I look forward to seeing all the staff again, as I move ahead with my treatment. You will be doing yourself a great favor going to this office. 👌🏽🦶🏼🦶🏼⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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.
