    Dr. Baravarian was extremely professional, helpful, and compassionate. I had moderate to severe pain in both feet with walking and standing for years that went misdiagnosed by a number of board certified podiatrists, orthopedic surgeons, and general practitioners. Even after seeing the so-called "best foot doctors" in 3 different major cities in the Southeast, I was told by all that I needed irreversible surgery or a potentially damaging procedure done. Doctor Baravarian not only worked with me from across the country during consultations to help get me on the right track, but also challenged the conclusions of the other doctors and through suggesting MRI's was able to uncover my actual diagnosis via imaging. My progress in recovery with the correct treatment with the right diagnosis skyrocketed after being stagnant for almost 5 years.! As a young, active individual, it was like I got my life back. I highly recommend anyone, whether in the local area, across the country, or anywhere in the world who is not happy with the results they are getting from their doctor treating their foot or ankle condition, or anyone who feels like they are stuck at a dead end and told that surgery is the only option for them, to call Dr. Baravarian and get a second opinion. It was well worth my time and money many times over, and I all but guarantee it will be worth yours too.

    Gray has been incredibly supportive, educational and caring with regards to my therapy. I have been progressing incredibly fast and am continuing, at home, with my therapy has he has given me the "tools" to do just that. His assistant, Carolina, has also been a joy to work with - she is, as well, attentive and they both have a great sense of humor which is so appreciated - we laugh, chat and all along get the job done. I'm feeling great! I'm glad that I found UFandAI.

    Dr. Briskin is an excellent Podiatrist and his work on my foot was excellent. The staff did not process my copay properly according Unitedhealthcare. I was not to have been charged a copay as I indicated to the staff.

    My ankle has a strange condition. It was explained to me to
    be like a varicose vein and not anything to worry about.

    love dr. Briskin! he always knows exactly what to do. tells me what's going on and how he's going to fix it and makes potentially scary things seem not scary at all. and most importantly always fixes whatever is hurting or broken etc!

    I waited for over three weeks for my orthotics and today when I stopped by after PT to check on them the waiting room was extremely crowded. No way to physically distance. Too many people waiting for patients. It would be good to create a sitting area in the hallway near the main door for non patient people to wait, and enforce the rule. It’s a bit too relaxed an environment during these pandemic times. Otherwise you guys rock!

    I know I have real problems. The inserts they made help some. My feet must be really messed up. I do not want to have any surgeries. I am happy with what they did for me. It is somewhat better now. I will never be able to walk any kind of distance though. They were professional and I appreciate that next to being denied health care previously for 6 years for political reasons. Go to fraudbuster.org and see the corruption I have put up with.
