24/12/13 5 4 1 1 He is super nice, and that's what makes this review so hard. He is probably very helpful with typical feet stuff, like bunions, ingrown toe nails ect.., but he mismanaged my acute sports injury and I've now been put back on crutches and in a boot nearly 3 months later, after hobbling around in pain, with the possibility of surgery.  Respond

23/07/13 5 5 5 5 The office was extremely clean, the staff was friendly helpful and very very good with the kids. My 14 year old son had an infected ingrowen toe nail and Dr Lalani explained everything he was going to do and joked with Robert which helped Robert to be at ease with the procedure. I got lost getting to his office and was late for the appointment and the staff were very understanding and we did not have to wait at all. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Lalani.  Respond

13/07/13 4 5 5 5 Dr. Lalani did a great job of treating my 8 year old daughter's plantar warts. His manner is excellent and he had a very nervous child totally relaxed and calm through the whole treatment. It may have been the simplest preoccedure he did all day, but he was very pleasant and showed an interest in my daughter and her activities. He gave very clear and easy to understand instructions for my daughter and she really didn't mind her visit at all?

12/06/13 5 5 5 5 I suffered for so long, I tried dr scholz inserts, injections, ice packs, a cane, naproxen..and soon I could barely walk. The doc in st paul and saddle lake couldn't help, just offer pills which I didn't want. My daughter who works in Tsuu Tnna as Homecare Nurse told me about Dr. Lalani, so I received a referral from the visiting doctor at Tsuu Tnna. Now I have hope again, I walk without a cane. I am now on follow up at 3 months after. I would recommend him to anyone. thank you.  Respond

02/04/13 5 5 5 5 I've never been to a podiatrist before, so I was a little anxious as to what to expect. When I first got there, the staff was really pleasant and welcoming. I finished the initial form, and was taken back to see the Dr. right on my scheduled appointment time (which is super rare). Dr. Lalani was super nice and alleviated my anxiety by taking the time to fully examine my ankle and knee and patiently answered my many questions. He also did a procedure on my toenail, and took the effort to fully explain each step before he did it, and more importantly explain WHY he was doing it. The whole time i felt I was in great hands, and being taken care of at a high level of professional care. Best yet, he followed up with me the next day to insure i was healing correctly. I'm very impressed with him and his clinic, and I have no reservations recommending him to family and friends.

16/12/12 5 5 5 5 I went to a previous doctor before Dr. Lalani because of convenience and was extremely dissatisfied with how bewildered and confused they were in how to treat what I have, their only solution was orthotics. I am extremely thankful that I took the time and found Dr. Lalani because he knows exactly what he is talking about, he is extremely knowledgeable and a very welcoming, friendly man. I felt completely comfortable being treated by him, he explained my condition and gave me plenty of solutions to choose from. Like said in other reviews, he would not recommend anything if he does not believe you truly need it. He is amazing and truly cares about you. The staff is awesome as well and the clinic is extremely nice and modern. I would definitely recommend him to everyone I know. We need more doctors like him! I'm lucky I got in before he gets piled with more clients. I won't see anyone else after him.

14/10/12 4 5 5 5 I suffered a soccer injury a year ago that causes my left foot to get a popping sensation from time to time. I went to walk-in clinics that sent me for x-rays, etc. and no one ever told me (in plain english) what the problem was or how to deal with it. Eventually the injury healed naturally, but the sensation lingered and I still had no idea what was causing it and how to deal with it. I went to Alpine Foot & Ankle Clinic to see if a podiatrist could help solve this mystery. He took X-rays and spent a considerable amount of time explaining to me what he found (even specifically pointing out the trouble area in the image). All in all, its great to finally understand the problem so I can begin remedying it when the sensation appears. Doctor Lalani is an excellent doctor, who really takes the time to educate his patients. It's because of this that I would definitely recommend him to anyone in my family who suffers from any foot injury or pain. And I didn't need a referral to see him :)  Respond

11/10/12 4 5 5 5 Dr. Lalani is honest and does not recommend orthotics or injections unless he believes you really need it. I really appreciate his honest and professtional advice. Great doctor.  Respond
