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.
Dr. Tulpule was very professional and helpful to my problem.
As usual, [Dr. Tulpule] is excellent.
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 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.

Excellent communication skills.
Dr Tulpule was SO knowledgeable and very easy to talk to!
The doctor was thorough and competent; exactly what I was looking for in a third opinion about my ankle problem. [...]
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.
