    I absolutely LOVE Dr. Redkar! I'm absolutely crushed that she's moving to my hometown, but wish her all the best in that beautiful city. She's caring, knowledgeable, skilled, and has collected an amazing team to support her! She explained my injury (partial Achilles tear) and the repair/surgery process. Surgery was a breeze, and I was made aware of the long recovery & therapy processes.

    I was concerned because the front desk staff was not wearing their masks as they should have been. One of them had her mask under her Nose and the other one did not have it completely covering her face the whole time. Considering that this is the Patient’s initial contact with the office I think they gave a bad first impression and I was not comfortable.

    I'm very satisfied. I never had to wait, they got me right in. Since I'm a cash payer I was surprised about the super fair pricing for this doctor and location. He also did an MRI the same day and called me right away with options. He didn't try to tell me I have to do this or that to get more money out of me, he said I should wait for another month and it prob will heal on it's own. Also said injections might make it worse later on. Very clean office! I immediately felt great over there and told my friend Nicole, who suffers from foot pain since NYE to go over there, she's coming from Studio City just to see him. I went through the reviews before I saw the doctor but I can't say anything negative. Everyone was nothing but friendly and it wasn't crowded with patients. They really organize their appointments well. Highly recommend seeing this doctor if u have issues with your foot and ankle.

    I just need a synopsis of the total care that I need to cure this problem with my foot. A more overall plan and timeline and prognosis.
