    It is always a pleasure to repeat my visit to your pleasant rooms. Everyone is always cheerful and helpful. I enjoy everyone there. It is a long trip for me - but the end result is always worth it.
    See you on my next visit.

    Not sure why but i had to wait almost an hour to be seen. I was on time. There were a dozen people in the waiting room, even some lined out the door. This was the first time this happened. The staff apologized so i figure something was going on. Otherwise, Dr. Bob and staff was wonderful. Maryrose Hopke

    Had a great experience with both Dr Baravarian and his staff. Would definitely recommend UFAI to anyone who is considering bunion surgery.

    I’ve been treated by Dr. Naei a few times and each time she’s been great at answering my questions and making me feel at ease. I always feel very reassured in her care and I always request her.

    My ONLY complaint was that I had to fill out all my data 3 weeks after I had my first appointment and had submitted the same data. The email link I received before the recent appointment directed me to a link (which didn't open) that I presume was to fill it all out again at home. I realize your office had changed your software but to need to fill out EVERYTHING was annoying.
    Otherwise I had a very pleasant experience - and I feel for your staff who had to endure this change over.

    I am a retired R.N. Have suffered painful problems for many years .always treated successfully by my Podiatrist, Dr Gary Briskin. My latest problem , I injured my .big toe ripping the nail partially from its bed. Dr Briskin ‘s care and expertise resulted in my not losing the nail. Thank you Dr Briskin!

    I have been coming here for years and usually see Dr. Gary Briskin. He wasn't available, so I saw Dr. Hoda Naei for an ankle issue. She is INCREDIBLE! So friendly, caring, explains everything in detail and provides exceptional patient care. Her medical assistant Erica was wonderful as well!
