    The receptionist are polite, respectful and helpful. The medical assistants are friendly and understanding. I needed a travel letter and a letter for my work and they were able to provide it the same day with in 5-10 minutes. The doctor listen and take the time to answer questions. During the treatment he was supportive. Overall it was a great experience. The only annoying thing is the cancellations of two of my appointments, but I understand that stuff happens.

    Not much anyone can do for me, I’m a stroke survivor and brain damaged. But your staff does what they can, I wish it were more but it is what it is.

    A scraping procedure on both heels - less than ten minutes - and the sharp pains are gone. Not only is walking back to normal, so is running - resumed next day. Fantastic treatment! Cannot be happier. Many sincere thanks.

    I couldn't ask for better care. I'm so grateful and fortunate I was able to have my bunion surgeries performed by Dr. Baravarian and Dr. Johnson. They are topnotch...the Doctors you have always wished you had... elegant, dedicated, kind, with a gentle sense of humor that makes you feel totally taken care of... All of my questions were answered... The entire staff is just as awesome. (I was able to have my pre-surgical visits at the Sherman Oaks location and my actual surgeries in Beverly Hills.)

    Very pleasant experience overall. Quick to be seen and not very much time waiting in the examination room before seeing the doctor. X-rays were quick and well explained. Follow up appointment pending.

    Dr. Baravarian was incredibly informative and thorough and his expertise revealed a special condition of my injury that another specialist did not see. My favorite part of seeing him is that he specializes in minimal invasive surgeries because who wants to have their leg unnecessarily opened or have a gigantic scar on their leg? Also: he has optional therapies to increase healing but doesn’t pressure you to use them. I opted to do it for the best results though. He also immediately took action to get me scheduled for surgery which showed his commitment to my case and Cheli is amazing in explaining everything. Lastly, I appreciated that he allowed me to ask as many questions that I needed without feeling rushed. All in all, will always come back here for any foot or ankle injuries.

    Over the course of two years, I broke three toes on my right foot. I was referred to University Foot and Ankle Institute by two doctors. Dr. Baravarian is awesome. Totally understood my situation and we discussed his recommendations. He always responds to my questions almost immediately and is a great source for referrals. He treated my feet as if they were his own.

    My only complaint was the length of time I had to wait in the waiting room at the surgery center. Other than that, the nurses were great there.

    My only feedback is for the doctor (Bob) to not ask a patient’s race or ethnicity- found it inappropriate and made me uncomfortable in a closed door room full of men ( I am female).
