    The staff is pleasant. The wait time is short. The doctor was quick, maybe a bit too quick.

    This is my one comment. I wish the doctor would have recommended I wear a tennis shoe. I figured this out on my own after wearing an open back shoe for 10 days. It’s hard to get it on but the support is so much better- this was never ever mentioned.

    Dr. Briskin is very knowledgeable and an excellent communicator. He told me about my condition and answered every question I had. I am confident with any decisions I’ve made regarding my condition.

    I am waiting for my insurance to approve MRI. Your office does not accept my insurance, so this is why I'm delayed in going back.

    Filling out information on the iPad was a bit challenging. Had to enter information several times. Would prefer non electronic forms.

    I had an unexpected foot "challenge" this week. I called the office & was able to get an appointment with Dr. Briskin on Tues. Even though I hadn't been to the office since the last foot incident of 4 years ago, I was treated very professionally by the staff. Fortunately, the X-rsys didn't show a break or fracture. My right ankle is discolored with some swelling & discomfort. Dr. Briskin suggested that I continue icing the area for 15 minutes several times a day until the swelling decreases. He said that if there is an increase in the pain, to be sure to call the office. I also have a follow up visit next week.I'm very impressed with Dr. Briskin's professionalism, concern, & care. I had peace of mind after the visit.All in all, a reassuring & good visit with Dr. Briskin & the staff.

    I had a new doctor - Dr. Abimbola Johnson who was very personable and down to earth. He also explained to me the importance of keeping the callus clean and smoothed down. I am pleased to have him as my doctor.

    We’ll, since u asked. I was treated by Dr Briskin for an ingrown toenail and was pleased. However a few days later, I was in NY, my toe was red around the nail and very tender. I called the office and was told to email
    The Dr . I did that, along with a picture. I included the name and phone number of a NY pharmacy in case I needed a prescription. I did not hear back from the Dr or any staff. I was aggravated after 2 days and hoped that using Neosporin daily would help the inflammation. I think you need to review your e mail response policy.

    The staff is very supportive and understanding of the patients. Dr. Briskin was very thorough in his explanation of my foot problem to me and the reasons for my pain. The decision to have the foot surgery was made easier for due to Dr. Briskin’s understanding of my somewhat complicated foot problem.

    Everyone was great! Only negative I have is the receptionist being kind of snotty which isn’t pleasant. I realize they have a lot going on but being curt and then saying thank you doesn’t go over very well. Maybe she was having a bad which is fine.

    I appreciated the friendly and communicative doctors and staff, and most importantly their expertise which led to the complete elimination of the medical problem which led me to their office. Each morning, when I am surprised about how painlessly I can walk, I am thankful for the people at UFAI and the amazing advances in the science they employ.

    Always a pleasure to come to this office. Everyone is friendly, professional and caring! I feel well taken care of from the moment I walk thru the door. Dr Briskin has consistently been concerned about giving my feet the proper solutions for the couple of issues I’ve encountered and I’m completely satisfied with my results!

    I came in with pain on my L foot. I was seen on time and the staff where very friendly. I was diagnosed with a Taylor’s Bunion and was given 2 options. We decided to proceed with an infiltration right there and then and I’m glad we did. Took care of the problem, now I’m pain free. Dr. Baravarian and his team were fantastic!
