Patient Survey ReviewsLearn how patient feedback is cultivated
Dr Tulpule has a great bedside manner. She thoroughly explains the cause of the problem and discusses treatment options, to include positives and negatives. Unlike what I’ve heard about most podiatrists, she didn’t immediately push orthotics to correct the symptoms, but started with PT. Only when it was clear that alone would not solve the problem, then she suggested orthotics. She also never seems rushed with discussing the options with me, which is hard to find in a doctor.
One of the best doctors I've ever had.
The staff, from the front desk to the doctor, is extremely professional and efficient.
I appreciate all your help. I left my appointment with renewed confidence in gaining a full recovery from my heel pain. Thank you!
Dr, Tulpule is just wonderful! She is very competent. She considers the whole body and not just your feet, understands the impact of lifestyle on your condition. She provides lots of information and a range of simple but effective adjustments that can address your issues.

I actually showed up at the wrong location for my appointment (DC versus Silver Spring, MD). The front desk staff and doctor understood my mix-up and still fit me into their schedule. I was extremely appreciative. And the doctor was awesome!
Dr. was great!
Seems to be an efficiently run office not interested in wasting anyone’s time yet the dr. took time to listen to me. The assistant who did the X-rays was also very nice.
Dr. [Tulpule] was wonderful. I was early but she fitted me in. She diagnosed my broken toe and told me how to take care of it and what to expect. She explained "RICE" and my injury feels better when I ice it and elevate it. I was fitted with a boot and I was told how to use it.
I was pleasantly surprised I could see the doctor within a day or two of calling. Receptionist was pleasant, as was the staff. Thank you!
