    I think one of the sutures was not ready to be removed. The others came out painlessly and this one between the toes hurt like crazy. That end of the incision is still not closed - almost 2 weeks later - and the rest of the incision seems fine.

    Also there could’ve been clearer communication about the type of shoe needed to transition from the boot. I brought my sneakers with my orthotics but then found out I needed a shoe with a more rigid sole. I would prefer to know all that upfront.

    Thanks.

    I couldn't be happier with the care I received. Dr Briskin was not only kind he is also genuine. The staff is also great. I'm glad a found UFAI. I cannot thank UFAI enough.

    I was happy with the care and diagnosis. The insurance part seemed to take time at the appointment. Not sure why that was not done in advance.

    I since learned that I was hyper-thyroid and that may have contributed to my bursitis in my heel.

    Had to call for a prescription for my iontophoresis medication. Would have been nice to be given that at the time of my visits

    I can't recommend Dr. Briskin and the entire University Foot and Ankle staff highly enough. I've been seeing doctor briskin for a couple of years now, and it's always been a positive experience. From the ease and flexibility of making an appointment, to the friendly front desk staff and PA's, and Dr. Briskin's friendly nature and professionalism; you just can't go wrong in choosing University Foot and Ankle. I've also gone to their physical therapists across the hall and again, couldn't have been happier with all of the staff and my results. I would give them all more than 5 stars if it were possible.

    I am so thankful that I found Dr. Carter! He is knowledgeable, honest, and really worked with me as an athlete to do what was best. He took the time to listen to my situation and take the best course of action for my ankle in the short and long term. I healed faster than expected and felt very well taken care of at every step of the process.

    I told Dr. B and the assistants that attended to me that I have, and have had for about 4 years, a strange feeling in my toes and ball of my foot that feels as if the tissue is filled with crumbled up Styrofoam. I feel this, for example, if I curl my toes.
    I asked Dr B and the assistants at both sessions, "What is the name of this symptom? What is causing it? Is there some treatment or therapy that can eliminate the feeling of crunched styrofoam?
    I never received an answer to this question. There were sort of puzzled looks and then, immediately, the topic would shift to creating orthotics for my feet.
    Well, I have and wear, the orthotics. But I would still like to know why I feel crunching styrofoam in my feet. Is it a problem with the nerves? Do other patients ever mention a similar feeling?

    I had to wait in the exam room too long in my opinion. I alerted staff several times that I had to leave for work but they didn't seem to understand the urgency. I had to leave and come back the next day to pick up my orthotics

    Excellent treatment from all of the staff, especially Dr. Briskin. He explained what he would be doing each step of the procedure. He was truly focused on me and I felt that he spent a good amount of time taking care of me. He was relaxed and he was not rushing through to get to the next patient. I am completely happy with the results and will keep him and his office in mind for future needs.
