The following are recent patient reviews:

“Dr. Dardashti has provided me with exceptional care.  He took the time to explain my condition and welcomed questions even by phone.  He performed successful foot surgery and kept a close watch on my progress afterwards.  Jasmine and the office staff are also incredibly helpful and caring.  I could not recommend Foot & Ankle Doctors, Inc. more highly!” – Elizabeth Y

“First Appointment is like a first impression- What a great guy! Not at all what I expected. Very high remarks, great office, great front!” – Gerald G.

“I went from hobbling around in pain to barely noticing my arthritis.  Dr. Nejad made my life so much better.” – Alex C.

“Great staff and very warm and encouraging doctor. Everything went as described in the appropriate timelines discussed. My custom orthotics relieved both my foot and back pain.  I could not be happier!”Jonathan G.
