A convenient and easy-to-use app facilitates the video chat to give you an experience that’s similar to seeing Dr. Bhuta in person.

You can discuss your concerns and questions with Dr. Bhuta during your telemedicine appointment, just like you would in person. Thanks to the visual component of telemedicine, Dr. Bhuta can examine your foot or ankle issue online to determine what type of care you need. 

Many patients of Ankle & Foot Doctors of New Jersey love the telemedicine option because they can stay home, comfortably and safely, while getting the specialized podiatry care they need.
