    Dr Baravarian has taken care of the entire family’s feet, for years. We know we can count on his care and advice. It is easy to recommend him, and the entire experience, we have done so, often.

    5 months and I'm still hurting. They stated 3 months. A bit disappointed in the long healing, but that could be based on my own healing process.

    The reminder calls are too much. I don't need 3-4 calls for each appointment. One is sufficient. Thanks.

    I love Dr. Briskin and I have great faith in him. I saw Dr. Saheedi for my last visit. He did an excellent job on my toenails, but made the extreme suggestion that I might need to see a vascular surgeon for my swollen foot. I consider surgery extreme; I don't even like pills. I ran to my internist and he quickly said no to seeing a surgeon. Dr. Briskin would never have suggested that. Perhaps Dr. Saheedi is too close to medical school to believe first in non-invasive treatment.

    Dr. Franson has been amazing. He thoroughly answers questions and educates his patients, which I absolutely love. He is consistently friendly, kind and caring. He takes a conservative approach and does not pressure you into one particular treatment plan but works alongside his patients, while informing them in detail of the best options for them. In my experience suffering a severe ankle injury, I have been so grateful and blessed to have Dr. Franson as my doctor.

    Grey, Lydia, Tammy, and Irma have all been spectacular during my recovery following successful surgery by Dr. Baravarian. I'm at the end of my physical therapy, and, though I'm happy I made it, I'll be sad to say goodbye to this team. I could not have done it without their encouragement, putting up with my impatience, and challenging me when I needed to be challenged out of my comfort zone. Taking home lots of exercises to do for the rest of my recovery, and also to continue over time for my health.
