    Waiting area very small and distancing during Covid could be difficult...

    Staff, does not seem so busy, but for example at my last appt- I requested 5 times the nurse to check if my Insurance approved a custom insole request - ( requested 1.5 months ago) and the nurse kept saying he will check or that he can not figure it out ?!?...
    until I was leaving the office and making fallow up appt and asked the front desk girl to check again & she said - Oh- yes it is approved!
    - do you want to go back in the room and do that now???
    NO I don't - I spent 1 hour inside to have to to go back , because the guy did not check ...
    Another example of careless staff/ office is that after I got a Big boot put on my broken leg - and asked 100 questions how to use it and match with my own shoe and struggled for 2 months with finding a balance- and having severe hip pain- the nurse said - Oh - we have something called EVEN UP - to use on the other leg if you want to purchase???
    This would have been SO useful 2 months in advance and is part of caring for your job and patients to OFFER!!! I love dr. Briskin, but the office and practice is not the most thoughtful and caring that info they give can make a difference in a patient life & recovery!!! I hope this changes!

    Unfortunately the doctor was never able to diagnose what the problem was (there were several theories/possibilities), but Gray did a wonderful job with my physical therapy and provided a treatment plan that was very effective at reducing the pain. Thank you!

    At University Foot And Ankle Institute I feel that they are taking care of medical needs and not ignoring my problems. I have been to other doctors office and I have not been able to be treated for my ankle like at Dr office. Me being a veteran they are understanding how the VA works and have patients dealing with them.

    Dr. Redkar was quick & efficient yet still very personable while taking care of the business of my broken toe. And while the prognosis wasn't looking too good (since I'd waited 10 days to see a professional!), she went ahead & did what she could. Incredibly pleased to say that the fractured toe, while still in the process of healing, has rejoined itself and hopefully, in another month or two, I'll be back in business! Thank you, Dr. Redkar.
