    Dr. Bhalja and the entire staff at Downtown Physicians are top-notch, and they seem to genuinely care about their patients and each other. Working with Dr. Bhalja has been a sincere joy. Her ability to apply her deep knowledge of podiatry with a delightful, personal touch puts her in a league of her own. She is clearly very passionate about her craft and invites you to be passionate with her, making every visit refreshingly therapeutic and educational. Dr. Bhalja laid out my treatment options clearly and transparently and kept me informed every step of the way. She also makes me feel like all of my concerns, my questions, and my input were valid and important. In Dr. Bhalja's care, I always know I'm in good hands, and you will too! I could go on and on about all the things that make Dr. Bhalja and her colleagues outstanding health care professionals and individuals, so I'll just say I have no doubt you'll be grateful you took the first step toward feeling better by walking through the door at Downtown Physicians and meeting these wonderful people.

    Dr. Bhalja should be the model for all doctors. She’s attentive, smart and allows plenty of time at each appointment to welcome that back and forth communication that is vital in treatment. Her diagnosis was spot on and the treatment worked. She has my highest recommendation.

    I've been treated by Dr. Bhalja of Downtown Podiatry Physicians over the years. The practice dealt with my Plantar Fasciitis and ankle issues as well as arch/heel problems. It's close to Downtown Brooklyn and Manhattan so the location is perfect. In every instance the Dr. was thorough in my examination and correctly assessed the location/cause of the pain I experienced- P. Badami.

    After living in New York City for 12 years and using my feet to go everywhere, they were hurting. I needed a good podiatrist close to Downtown Brooklyn or Manhattan. Dr. B worked wonders! Turned out both my arches had collapsed - she made me custom orthotics that fit like a glove. They took away the pain almost immediately! Dr. B also made me feel very comfortable - I feel like I had known her for years! Her entire staff was super friendly too - none of the normal snarkiness that we’ve all become accustomed to in the city.
