“What I love about podiatry is that most patients leave feeling better than when they came in.”
— Dr. Albert Nejat
The biomechanics of feet are fascinating to Dr. Nejat, but what he loves most about being a podiatrist is being able to help patients feel more comfortable after just one visit.
After opening his original practice in New York City, Dr. Nejat returned to Los Angeles (his childhood home) in 2002. He is trained in conservative and surgical techniques, and provides customized treatment plans that suit a patient’s age, medical history and lifestyle.
During his free time, Dr. Nejat enjoys spending time with his family. He is also an avid cyclist, swimmer and golfer.
