Before having my procedure I was a bit apprehensive but I was soon at ease: Dr Zong definitely knows what he's doing and I was so pleased with the result that I cannot praise him enough! I'm so happy I've found him :-)

I was beyond impressed with my experience at this office. My first contact was with front desk and I was completely blown away by how helpful and kind they were and how fast they was at getting back to me! A lot of doctors don’t realize how important it is to have a receptionist and front line, this group was kind. The first point of contact is crucial! Now on to the appointment… my appointment ran on time, Dr.Zong was really knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment! I would highly recommend this group!”

First let me say Dr Zong is an amazing doctor! I am so happy with the job he did on my feet. For as long as I can remember I've been very self-conscious about my very large, unattractive feet. I have always wanted to have surgery to improve their appearance and reduce their size. Dr Zong examined my feet while I explained my problems and expressed my desire for surgery. He told me about the procedures he could perform to help me on my way to having pretty, healthy pain free feet. I felt Dr Zong was really listening to me and wanted to help me get the feet I so desired. I've had extensive surgery on both feet with Dr Zong. I had bunion surgery, tobesity surgery (slimming of big fat toes), hammer toe surgery and tailor's bunion (the little bump that sticks out by the pinky toe) surgery. Dr Zong did a phenomenal job. He was precise with the incisions and meticulous in the job he did. His bedside manner and after care consultations were caring and informative. The entire experience for this foot surgery was great. It seems weird saying surgery was great but that is the only way to describe the experience I had at the hand of Dr Zong. If you are looking for a foot surgeon that cares about the job he does and the people he treats then you will find all that and more if Dr Zong is the surgeon. I highly, highly, highly recommend Dr Zong if you need foot care or surgery.

I had been suffering from severe pain in both of my feet from bunions and I researched and found Dr. Zong at NYC Footcare. I had my first consultation with Dr. Powerman and Dr. Zong in early October where they answered all of my questions and explained everything in detail. I felt very comfortable and scheduled the right foot for November 5, 2014 and the left foot for December 10, 2014. I was given paid medication along with 800 mg Motrin for swelling a week prior to the surgery. The right foot consisted of bunionectomy and toe realignment with bone spurs removed from my big toe. I ended up with pins in my toes and dissolvable stitches. I had very little pain and was back to work within two (2) weeks. The pins were out in 3 weeks and I was in a sneaker in 4 weeks and the left foot was operated on in the 5th week. I am now in my 3rd week and 8th week and I am progressing very nicely with very little to no discomfort or visible scarring. I am extremely satisfied with the surgery and the care that continues to be provided at every visit. I highly recommend NYC Footcare with Dr. Powerman and Dr. Zong for your foot surgery. I would like to add that Fifth Avenue Surgery Center where the procedure took place was fantastic! The staff and surgical team were very comforting and did everything to make me feel calm and relaxed.

I first met Dr. Zong and Dr. Powerman 5 years ago when I had my first surgery. Since then, I have had multiple surgeries on both my feet. Dr. Zong is an excellent surgeon and great at what he does. Both Dr. Zong and Dr. Powerman are caring wonderful podiatrists. I have had great results with all of my surgeries and could not be happier. I will definitely use Dr. Zong and Dr. Powerman for any surgical or podiatric needs I may have in the future, and I am happy to refer NYC Footcare to family and friends.

My experience with NYC Footcare is about as good as it can get for someone having foot surgery. I am very satisfied with the level of care I received from the time I walked through the door and through the healing process. This is the 2nd foot surgery I've had with Dr. Zong and I went back because of the level of care. Dr. Zong explains the type of surgery needed. He takes you from the steps he plans on taking to reach that goal, to the healing process. Note that everyone is different and everyone heals at a different rate, so nothing is exact but he comes pretty close. While Dr. Zong is the surgeon and has the final say, I must give props to Dr. Powerman. She was my primary care doctor. I met with her on all occasions and she explained procedures and care. She made sure you understand what you were about to go through and gave you the reassurance you needed to feel comfortable about taking on the procedure.

I can see the deferent before and after the surgery. Before the surgery I could not walk for long distance because of the bunions in both feet,also I was buying shoes bigger than my size because I wanted my feet fit easily, but now I feel happy that I can buy any shoes that I like and they do not hurt as before, there is little bit hurting but obviously I need to do more exercise for both f them or going to the physical therapy, also my feet look very good than before.

I FOUND DR. ZONG THROUGH AN INTERNET SEARCH AND WAS THRILLED TO FIND OUT HE DID TOE SLIMMING BC I HATED MY BIG TOES. I AM A SKINNY YOUNG GIRL THAT HAD LARGE TOES. THEY DIDN'T FIT MY BODY TYPE AND I WAS REALLY SELF CONSCIOUS TO SHOW MY FEET. I WAS SO HAPPY TO FIND HIM HOWEVER, I HAD TO WORK UP THE COURAGE TO CALL HIS OFFICE. I HAD ALWAYS BEEN EMBARRASSED OF MY FEET SO MUCH THAT I WAS EVEN INTIMIDATED TO CALL THE OFFICE AND DISCUSS MY TOE PROBLEM. FINALLY I FORCED MYSELF TO CALL TO GET MORE INFORMATION AND FROM THE FIRST PHONE CALL I FELT COMPLETELY COMFORTABLE HIS STAFF IS PROFESSIONAL AND VERY HELPFUL. I LIVE IN CALIFORNIA AND COMMUNICATED WITH DR. ZONG AND HIS STAFF VIA EMAIL AND PHONE FOR ABOUT A MONTH AND A HALF BEFORE SURGERY THEY TOOK THE TIME TO ANSWER ALL MY QUESTIONS (WHICH WERE A LOT) AND THEY MADE THE PROCESS EASEIR FOR ME. THEY REPLIED TO MY EMAILS IN A TIMELY MANNER EVERYTHING WAS GREAT BEFORE EVEN COMING TO NYC. ONCE I ARRIVED THINGS GOT EVEN BETTER THE STAFF WAS JUST AS SWEET IN PERSON AS THEY WERE OVER THE PH0NE, THEY HAVE A NICE OFFICE AND THEY GAVE ME REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS. MY SURGERY WAS A LOT EASIER THAN I EXPECTED, I JUST SAW MY FEET FOR THE FIRST TIME AND THEY LOOK GREAT. THEY ARE VERY SYMMETRICAL AND TRULY SMALLER THINNER BIG TOES. I CAN NOT WAIT TO SHOW OFF MY FEET ONCE I'M COMPLETELY HEALED. I HAVE HAD A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE WITH DR. ZONG AND HIS STAFF. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MY PRETTY FEET.

Dr. Zong of NYC Footcare performed a remarkable toe-plasty on both of my feet. Before my surgery my pinky toes popped up and over my fourth toes. They were often painfully crammed into shoes and looked awful. I love walking barefoot on the beach. I also love sandals. After years of hiding my feet, I now show them off. Bravo Dr. Zong - who listens to his patients and does a great job! Kudos, also to Dr. Powerman who was always warm, supportive and helpful. Carol

Dr. Zong & Dr. Powerman; I can't believe it has been a few years since I had my surgeries. I did the left foot first, so I can still drive and about 8 weeks later, I did the right foot. What brought me in to see Dr. Zong is his expertise on fixing odd shaped toes which I had on both feet. I never showed my feet to anyone and was always emabarrased by them. The recovery was quick and before you know it, I was walking and running. I want to thank Dr. Powerman for taking good care of me & my feet and having a lot of patience and Dr. Zong for giving me nice feet that I am no longer embarrassed about. For the first time in my life, I went out and bought the cutest flip flops and open toe shoes and showed off my feet to the world. Thank you for the bottom of my heart for changing my life. Sylvie.

My entire life I hid my feet, I never walked in the sand, didn't swim at pools, and never walked barefoot in my own home. When I woke in the morning if I wasn't wearing socks, I put socks on. After the shower I immediately put slippers on, never swam in the ocean with my kids. My life was one filled with anxiety over the look of my feet. I always had to be aware of social situations, and people's expectations. For example to visit someone new, I would would wonder about walking into their home, would they make me take my shoes off? If it was even a possibility I would have to change my attire to wear boots so I could wear socks. My whole life revolved around that moment when someone would see my feet. They were so indescribably terrible and Alien to look at that people could not look past them. What if I embarrassed my kids? No sleepovers with girlfriends, no painting my toes to feel extra special. I could never feel pretty, I was not someone that could be truly loved, not a real woman. I only pretended when my feet were hidden, but there was always a part of me that deep down knew I was so much less. When I contacted Dr Zong I made a choice to show my husband and tell him I needed change for my self esteem. I have never regretted my decision. I delayed writing this testimonial for so many months because it makes me incredibly emotional to put this all into words. DR OLIVER ZONG changed my life, and my world. I walk on the beach holding hands with my husband, I'm confident, beautiful, and love life with more zest than I ever thought possible. I owe him more than the tears that fall as I write this testimonial. I have become a different person both inside and out. I love more, and am able to be loved deeper than I ever thought possible. Thank you Dr Zong. When you sat in that coffee shop in NYC with my husband sketching a plan on how to save my life I knew I trusted you before knowing how incredible the outcome really was!!! Jen

After hearing so many other frightening post-op stories, I'm so glad I chose NYC footcare for my procedures. After initially coming to see Dr. Zong about a strange pain and numbness in my right foot, I also spoke to him about other issues that bothered me, more-so cosmetically. He was so honest with me in the consultation, and actually told me that my concern was not something that needs surgery because "it's really not so bad." He gave me a few different options and told me the outcome of every single thing I may experience after each one. His no-pressure, calm personality made it very easy to feel confident that I was in good hands. So, I decided to take care of everything that bothered me; my bunions (problem initially), Hagland's Deformity or heel bumps, and shortening of a couple toes to avoid future corns. HUGE procedure, but so worth it! I did my feet about two weeks apart from each other. Dr. Zong was incredible through both surgeries as he made sure I didn't have anymore questions before or after the procedure. His confidence left me with no worries at all. He was actually there as I woke up from my anesthesia both times with very pleasant nurses. There was pain for the first couple of days which was expected. Each day became incredibly easier after that. I was up and lightly working out again before I knew it. I was able to visit Greece less than 3 weeks after my second surgery...and walk around, sightsee and swim! My healing time has been even shorter than expected! Highly recommended!

We took our 8 year old daughter to see Dr. Zong because she was complaining of foot pain and was having trouble walking. He as well as his staff were caring and took into consideration our concerns. He did a thorough exam of my daughters feet and quickly put our minds at ease with his diagnosis. Dr. Zong is an extremely knowledgeable and caring doctor who we would recommend to everyone.

Dr Zong is exceptionally well informed. His bedside manner is great. Being a nurse, I am very very nervous when it comes to me being in need of medical attention. When I fell, I knew I was in trouble. My ankle swelled and changed color right away. Dr Zong came highly recommended from a peer. Needless to say I was willing to travel into the city from NJ to see him. The office was able to fit me in right away and Dr Zong took the time out of his busy patient schedule to listen to me and explain everything that was happening. He calmed my nerves as well as fixed my ankle. Apparently, my injury was complex, involving both bone and tendons. Almost a month out now and I'm feeling great. His follow up care is wonderful. I've been to doctors in the past that "fix and forget". This is not one of them. If you are in the market for a podiatrist, this is the one!

I am a registered nurse whose profession consists of lots of legwork caring for patients. I've not taken time to treat my right foot which was feeling uncomfortable and sensitive due to unsightly hammertoes. I've been extremely fortunate to have been the recipient of DR Zong's magical surgical hands. Not only did he repair the problem---but he grafted artificial bone to 3 toes thereby producing a masterful outcome.
