Ratings for Dr. Peter J. Bregman
I had a high arch on both of my feet along with type II diabetes. Have gone to podiatrists over the last 20 years to have calluses trimmed due to the arch and have used various types in shoe inserts. Over time calluses would not heal and became subject to infections. After being referred to Dr. Bregman, I was scheduled for surgery within a month. Dr. Bregman corrected the problem with one foot and then did surgery on the other foot. Since surgery which flattened out my arch, and having he correct orthotics for my shoes, I no longer have those issues. Wish I would have done it 20 years ago!!
The toes on my right foot were leaning towards my big toe and some toes were curling under. I saw Dr. Bregman and he diagnosed a torn ligament. He did surgery on November 30 to repair the ligament and straighten my toes. I was amazed that I had such little pain after the surgery. Dr Bregman personally called me the day after surgery to see how I was doing. I am recovering nicely with taped toes and wearing a boot. It's nice to see straight toes again! I can't say enough about how knowledgeable, compassionate and considerate Dr Bregman and his medical assistant, Lis are. Should the need arise, I would definitely see Dr Bregman. I highly recommend him.
Had a very good experience with Dr. Bregman and staff. My experience far exceeded my previous doctor. I found Dr Bregman to be very knowledgeable. He diagnosed my planter fasciosis and explained clearly my treatment options. Now I’m pain free.
“I finally saw Dr. Bregman for a complex nerve problem after many other doctors and countless MRIs and testings could not help. He performed surgery on multiple nerves in my right foot and I’m now able to walk and do activities without any pain like I had before! He is extremely thorough and knowledgeable about what he is doing. He has a lot of compassion and communicates well with patients. I was pleasantly surprised when he promtly answered one of my questions over email even though it was the weekend! I highly recommend Dr. Bregman! I wished I had known about him from the beginning so I didn’t have to waste my time and money!”
Dr Bregman is a very nice man. His office staff treated me with lots of respect. He saw me for 6 months and did surgery on me and I never improved and he could never explain why. I was referred to a neurosurgeon by my neice who is a nurse and he had to to another surgery but I now have no more pain in my foot.
Dr. Peter J. Bregman's response
I wish I knew who this person was so I could understand what was done to help this person. I wish I had 100% success rate but this is the nature of medicine and surgery. I am glad you were able to find help and get better. Sometimes there are other nerve issues that occur once you do one surgery that will not reveal until after surgery but I am glad you got better if you read this please email me and let me know what was done to get you better....Dr. Bregman

I came to Dr Bergman through the Veteran's Affairs Choice program and was extremely impressed from the beginning. His staff are amazingly friendly, competent, and outstanding problem solvers - they know their stuff!! Dr Bergman is knowledgeable with a warm personality and delightful bedside manner - from the first appointment through surgery to the post operation phase his professionalism and true concern for his patient's welfare was evident. I thank everyone for the treatment I've received and am still receiving - I look forward to having my other foot done by this wonderful team of professionals!
After experiencing a very traumatic Morton's Neuroma surgery at the hands of a different Doctor, I searched out Dr. Bregman from our Insurance list. I had such a fear of ever even going to a Doctor again but, Dr, Bregman was unbelievable in his knowledge and compassion. I was truly surprised that he would even step in to what another Doctor had made a mess of but, Dr. Bregman didn't even hesitate and assured me that he could make my life better than it was at that point. He knew my fears and made sure that I did not feel anything during and even for a few days afterwards of my surgery with him. Everything that I would need after the surgery was completely set up before the surgery, things working like clockwork. I was amazed at how efficient Dr. Bregman and his staff were. It has been a little over a year now and I can tell you that Dr. Bregman accomplished everything that he told me he could do with repairing what another Doctor had done to me. Dr. Bregman has continued to go the extra mile for me, helping with ongoing medical issues caused by that other Doctor, even though it is not his area of medicine. I thank God everyday that Dr. Bregman is my foot Doctor, only wishing that he could be my Doctor for all the things that happened to me from one horrible moment. He is so kind, even when I bother him at all hours, he gives me direction in what to do or where to go next. I email him and kid you not, I get an email back from him almost before I hit the SEND button! I have been in Dr. Bregmans' Office many times now and I have never heard or seen anyone upset. Everyone that I have come across, including his Staff say nothing but, Great things about him. I don't think that I've ever waited past 5 minutes of my appointment time to be seen. There is always so much to cover with my issue that I feel guilty and try to talk as quickly as possible, as to not hold him up but, he never, ever rushes me. He is always very thorough at each and every appointment. If I ask a question and he doesn't know the answer, he gets the answer! Myself, my family and friends all know that if anyone has a foot issue, Dr. Bregman is who we go to, because you are definitely in Great Hands with Dr. Bregman. Do yourself a favor, if you or someone that you know are looking for a Foot Doctor, call Dr. Bregman, you'll be glad that you did...Thank You Dr. Bregman for being the Fantastic, Professional and Knowledgeable Doctor and The Compassionate Human Being that YOU are!!!
After experiencing foot pain for months, and trying all the inserts/special shoe recommendations from my first podiatrist, I consulted Dr. Bregman. He recommended nerve decompression. I had the procedure in his surgery center - great experience, very attentive staff. At 4 weeks post op, I no longer have pain and no longer limp. I'm excited for the next few weeks to be completely released and back to walking/hiking. Dr. Bregman was spot on with his recommendations and care!
I had a swelling just behind the foot-pad which kept the front of the foot from settling on the floor with each step, like having the top 1/16” of a golf ball in my shoe. I had seen another doctor for about 7 months and was getting nowhere. Given his reviews, I took a chance and saw Dr. Bregman. He quickly identified that my problem included Tarsal Tunnel syndrome back by the ankle by pressing a spot near the ankle of the good foot with no pain, while pressing the same spot on the bad foot which caused me definite pain. The other doctor hadn’t even noticed and was just treating the front of the foot with injections. Supporting X-rays and ultra-sound were done right in his office. His confidence in his diagnosis was refreshing so I accepted his recommendation on surgery vs what the other doctor suggested. Post-surgery you’ll have his email if you experience problems and he answers pretty quick!! Office staff is great. In 5 or 6 visits there, I’ve never waited more than 15 minutes past appointment time to actually see Doc. Suggestion: if you get foot surgery get a knee-walker, it’s a god-send vs relying only on crutches.
