Patient Survey ReviewsLearn how patient feedback is cultivated
I work in the medical profession, not as a healthcare provider, but I have extensive experience on the professional administration and policy side. I could not be more impressed with my experience at FASMA. I had been putting off seeing a physician for my foot pain, but when I received a referral to Dr. Tulpule it was incredibly easy to make an appointment through the website. The experience at the office was great as well. The front desk staff was courteous and professional, as was the medical assistant. Dr. Tulpule took her time to listen to my concerns, perform the exam and to talk to me about options for treating my plantar fascitis. The only frustrating part is that the care plan to treat the plantar fasciitis is complicated, multifactorial and not something that can be easily remedied. But that is an issue with the diagnosis, not the practice. I'm confident that Dr. Tupule will help me improve and manage the condition.
the nurse and administrative staff were excellent. the nurse measured me for replacement orthotics. he was knowledgable and professional. he explained everything and showed me the 3-d images. Thank you! [...]
This was excellent visit. The doctor provided some tools for home usage.
happy with everything
Everyone was very attentive and I liked that we went through the x-rays together and the doctor explained the different parts of my foot and where this pain was originating. It was really nice to finally know what is wrong instead of guessing and treating it based on those guesses (or not).
Dr. Saylee Tulpule was great. She was very thorough and explained everything very well. I felt like she cared about [my] situation and was willing to work with me to create a personalized plan that would help get at the causes of my pain.
Dr. Tulpule was excellent. I felt like she spent the time to explain everything to me and I never felt rushed while asking questions.
Dr. Tulpule was excellent--great expertise and explanation of the problem--thorough--personable (great bedside manner). It was an overall great experience. I was in and out in less than an hour--with a boot and prescription. The staff was equally as professionally and personable.

EXCELLENT CARE. I COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR BETTER!
Dr. Tulpule thoroughly and clearly described options for treating my foot pain. After we agreed on an injection of cortisone, she administered a shot I barely felt. The next day the pain was markedly reduced for the first time in months.
[Dr. Tulpule] is a wonderful doctor.
Dr. Tulpule was GREAT with my son. Really engaged with him, as the patient, but answered all my questions as the mom.
Dr. Tulpule is simply the best!
Dr Tulpule is the fifth foot specialist I have seen since 2015. She spent the most time examining my issue, asked the most questions about my history, and answered more fully more of my questions than all the other doctors combined. Her explanations are specific and clear; her manner is very caring. and I am finally on a path of foot health that I did not think possible four years ago. Big fan of Dr T and of FASMA.
In and [out] without feeling [rushed. Love] my [doctor] she was very knowledgeable
