    Dr Franson is a phenomenal surgeon - and even more importantly, a truly good person. A great man who is great because his compassion is not worn on his sleeves but demonstrated in his natural kindness and humanity.

    Staff at UFAI/Valencia is similarly kind and thoughtful. A wonderful practice.

    We’d like to know where Dr Carter went. He was great with my daughter.

    Transition from Dr. Carter to Dr. Baravarian was seamless, and I was happy that I did not have to reschedule my surgery. I feel like I am in very capable hands with Dr. Baravarian and the staff.

    I had a balance which I was not aware of. It was small, less than $20, but I only see my podiatrist 1x/year. When I asked why a bill was not sent, the response was they do not bill. I would encourage you to send bills for any outstanding portions.

    Would have liked to be introduced to the other doctor (assistant? intern?) who came into the room with Dr Briskin. It was all very fast -- not quite rushed -- and it was weird not to have him acknowledged or introduced.

    Not sure if the orthotics are helping. They seem to bother my feet when I wear tennis shoes. Still experimenting with them.

    I had VERY large bone spur that torn my achilles tendon. Dr.Baravarian did surgery to detach and reattach the achilles tendon. There was not much left of the tendon, it took forever to heal. Nine months after the surgery I was still in a lot of pain. Dr. Baravarian did PRP two times and that made the all difference!!

    I started having problems with Planter Facia again and I am doing more therapy with scrapping and heat on the bottom of my foot which is helping a lot. I still have to be careful to not walk on concrete for very long.

    Dr Baravarian and his staff are very caring and great to work with. I highly recommend going to Dr. Baravarian for any kind of foot treatment.
    I am doing very well and have Dr. Baravarian to thank for his great surgery!

    Front desk staff is less friendly than the rest of the team but that doesn't affect her work. They handle their responsibilities very well, IMO.
