Went to his Clifton office for an ingrown toenail for my mom

Brought my mom in to Dr. Velimir Petkov's Clifton office for an ingrown toenail. The doctor is a pleasant energetic man who pays attention to you as a patient. Dr. Petkov was very attentive and performed the ingrown toenail removal procedure in a timely manner. He explained what he was doing in a lot of detail which made both my mom and me feel at ease. The ladies working at his front office are both very sweet and caring. The office is lovely especially the waiting room. Strong recommendation.

Dr. Velimir Perkov is my new go-to podiatrist

I called and made an appointment same day. The woman who helped me schedule it was very polite and accommodating. I live in Clifton but I was coming from the city after work. I ended up being half an hour late and thought that I might be forced to reschedule. When I arrived for my appointment, it was already well after 6 and dark outside. I expected the doctor and staff to be at least somewhat annoyed with me being late. No such thing! The front desk staff were very welcoming and helped me register. Dr. Petkov was understanding and took his time with me. He spent more than enough time going over the cause of my foot pain and various treatment options. His exam and the info he gave me were both very thorough. I am happy to have found such a great podiatrist. I recommend Dr. Petkov and his wonderful staff at Premier Podiatry.

Great podiatrist

My son has flat feet and complained from pain. I was advised to take him to see a podiatrist. I looked for a podiatrist in Clifton, found Dr. Velimir Petkov's website and chatted with one of his staff members. She was truly helpful. I brought my son to Dr. Petkov for a 2nd opinion. He saw us promptly and his exam was very thorough. I asked a lot of questions and the doctor answered them all. I'm happy with the way he treated my son and his recommended treatment works. I'm truly thankful and happy to recommend Dr. Petkov.

Dr. Petkov is helping me deal with my heel pain and I highly recommend him. Knowledgeable and diligent podiatrist.

I went to Premier Podiatry for my heel pain which has been getting progressively worse for the past year. Everyone in their Clifton office went above and beyond to make me feel welcome and comfortable. The staff was pleasant and helpful. I loved the tablet registration. Dr. Petkov was knowledgeable and diligent. He recommended various things that we can try to avoid surgery. I couldn't recommend him and his podiatry office more highly.

Wonderful kid-friendly podiatrist

I was looking for orthotics for my 7-year old who has flat feel. I searched for a pediatric podiatrist in the Clifton area and found Premier Podiatry. made an appointment with Dr. Petkov after watching a very informative video their website. It went into details about how the orthotics are made. Our visit in his Clifton office was spectacular. Making her appointment, finding the place and checking in was all very easy. Once there, my daughter commented on how she feels like a guest in someone's house. The receptionist was really sweet and helpful. Dr. Velimir Petkov saw us shortly after our arrival. The exam & consultation took about 20-25 min. I have to say that Dr. Petkov is a very friendly and likeable person. He really made my kid feel comfortable. Watching the orthotics being made was really interesting for both of us. Technology has come a long way. It's been about a month and the orthotics have held up nicely. I like that I'm able to wash them. Many thanks to this wonderful podiatrist and his staff at Premier Podiatry!

The best podiatrist in Clifton

Dr. Petkov is the best podiatrist in Clifton and the best one I've ever had. As a diabetic I have complicated foot problems. Dr. Petkov always sees me on time and does not rush through my appointments. He is very caring and has a great sense of humor. I highly recommend him and his office Premier Podiatry in Clifton for diabetic foot care and foot pain.

Dr. Petkov is a great personable & thorough podiatrist

I've been having some heel pain and went to Premier Podiatry for the free foot check-up they were offering. When I walked in I expected having to wait for a long time and spend no more than 10 min. with the podiatrist. No such thing. I waited to be seen no longer than 5 minutes. Dr. Velimir Petkov's examination was very thorough and he was determined to find the cause of my heel pain. He ran diagnostic tests, asked me a lot of questions and answered all of mine. He then went over everything and explained what is wrong with my foot as well as various ways in which he could fix it. Best of all there was no attempt to pressure me into anything. Ultimately it's up to me how I want to proceed in treating my heel pain. The Clifton location is great. His podiatry office is nice and clean. But most of all I really like Dr. Petkov's personable approach and the fact that he is so easy to talk to. I look forward to my treatment with him.

Outstanding experience with Dr. Petkov

I had scheduled a next day appointment online for a toe infection. I had to reschedule it for the following day and the woman on the phone was very accommodating. Dr. Velimir Petkov and his staff at Premier Podiatry are absolutely fantastic. He expertly examined my toe and numbed it before removing the dead greenish skin around the infected area. Dr. Petkov was so gentle that I did not feel a thing. He explained how I got the infection, answered my questions and sent a digital prescription for antibiotics to my pharmacy for me. He was really caring and kind. His Clifton office is beautiful. It has been 2 weeks and my infection has cleared. Thanks, Dr. Petkov!

Treated 2 of my family members wonderfully

Dr. Petkov used to see my mom in our home and always treated her very kindly. I could tell that he is a great doctor by the sheer amount of time spent and how patiently he talked to her. I recommended that my brother-in-law sees him because he had a big nasty bump and some black spots on his sole. Apparently Dr. Petkov no longer makes home visits but has a private podiatry practice in Clifton now. My brother-in-law saw him and only had nice things to say afterwards. His bump turned out to be a plantar wart which he says is now gone. I am happy to recommend Dr. Petkov based on my family's experiences with him. He is a great podiatrist who provides quality foot care.

Excellent podiatrist

Dr. Petkov is an excellent podiatrist who helped me manage foot pain. He addressed all of my concerns and followed up with me shortly after. His office is convenient to get to and different from any other doctor's office that I've ever been to. The staff is very attentive. My experience has been great. Thanks!
