Barbara, a pateint of Dr. Gary Briskin discusses her Bunion Surgery experience at the University Foot and Ankle Institute.
Love Dr. Briskin! He was so reassuring and helpful. Had a fantastic experience!
I have always enjoyed my experiences here. A very warm and friendly atmosphere.
My right foot had been very tender and very painful for about two months, when I went to see Dr. Breskin. He was able to diagnose it right away and start treatment. I have Plantar Fasciitis. He answers all questions ...
Dr. Briskin is the best! My various foot concerns lasted 1.5 years so I had the opportunity to see a lot of Dr. Briskin. He's an excellent surgeon and a lovely person. I'd recommend him to any friend or family member...
I am presently walking pain free and grateful for the help. Many thanks!
Everything about the office was clean, efficient and professional.
GREAT OFFICE STAFF, GREAT MEDICAL STAFF, GREAT DOCTOR!!! THANKS!
I love Dr. Gary Briskin, Gray O' Brien & the physical therapy staff in Santa Monica. Super nice people, and very helpful getting me back on my feet!
