"The best podiatric care in town! I saw Dr. Paranjpe back in July and I still feel compelled to write a review. I was experiencing some pain in my feet and was able to get an appointment fairly quickly. Dr. Paranjpe could not be nicer. I didn't feel like he was rushed at all or trying to "get in and get out". He spent a lot of time with me and seemed very sincere and genuine in his concern for my condition. I would not hesitate to recommend this practice to all my family and friends!"
