Dr. Janna Gefter, DPM graduated from New York College of Podiatric Medicine
She is Board Certified by American Board of Podiatric Medicine and has a combination of 11 years of education and over 12 years of experience.
The experience began with my residency. I completed the first year at St. Barnabas hospital in the Bronx, where I focused on all aspects of medicine, such as internal and emergency medicine, dermatology, pediatrics and infectious disease. As the specialty of Podiatry is focused on the foot and ankle part of the human body, my second and third years were spent on training in all aspects foot and ankle pathology.
Dr.J.Gefter bedside manner is very gentle, she is extremely patient and informative. She took her time with me and answered all my questions. Highly recommendedMaria S
There are a wide range of ailments that are treated by a Podiatrist. A patient’s concern could be as simple as an annoying corn or something life threatening like a massive infection. As such I learned that treatment options can range from the modest and precautionary all the way through to surgical.
I went to Dr. Gefter for an ingrown toenail. I was nervous and in so much pain. Dr. Gefter was extremely pleasant and calmed me down. She took her time and I never felt rushed. I immediately felt at ease. Afterwards she provided me with clear instructions and followed up daily. She has hands of gold and I would trust her to care for my entire family.John B
She always believed that a thorough and detailed initial exam leads to the most successful outcomes for both the doctor and the patient. One of the keys to this success is to spend sufficient time with the patient to fully understand all aspects of the issue. From experience this has always left better placed to offer the best solution gathered from her years in the field.
There is a connection that is formed between patient and doctor and this bond makes me personally invested in finding the most positive outcome for my patients.
Dr. Janna Gefter changed my life! For years, I was very insecure with the appearance of my feet, and at times, I experienced discomfort standing for long periods of time in my shoes. I had what is called a “hammertoe” on the left and right foot (pinky toe). To feel better about my self, I decided to have surgery and I’m so glad I found Dr. Gefter. My surgery was successful and most importantly, I feel confident showing my feet because my pinky toes are straight! Dr. Gefter is very knowledgeable and kind.
I was met with professionalism at Plaza Foot Care with staff members such as Michelle, Rosie and Minerva. They are awesome!
Dr. Gefter is highly recommended! My mom also had a consultation with her and plans to have her procedure in the Fall.
Next up on my to-do list is Invisalign for a perfect smile.
Thank you so much😊
I had a problem in my right big toe for eight months. So I was looking for a good podiatrist who could solve my problem and teach me what to do, so the problem would not reoccur. My friend suggested Dr. Janna Gefter, because she had some foot problem herself and she knew Doctor for quite some time. I decided to try it too. My first impression of the office was very pleasant. Front desk girls were very nice, helpful and polite. Waiting time was minimal. Appointment was made at 11am, so Doctor saw me at 11:10 am and all paper work done. At first I was skeptical because Dr. Gefter looked very young and I didn’t know what to expect, but when we started conversation I realize how experienced she is. She did an x-Ray right in the office and she gave right diagnosis right away. She did a cortisone shot into my big toe ( I was afraid of this shot more than anything ) and it was practically painless. I was so happy that the pain is gone and I can walk now, I wanted to dance. Next time I came with my 4 years old son, because he needed shoe inserts. The same result. Waiting time is minimal, Doctor spend good amount of time with each patient, diagnosis to the point and results are great. Now I am still pain-free and I will see Dr. Gefter sometime in fall. I can recommend Dr Janna Gefter to anyone who needs help.
