    Felt a bit rushed with my questions to the doctor. Also, prescription info was not clear. The need to get it through a pharmacy in Orange County. And I have received texts not knowing what they were. Am in process of getting that cleared up.

    Honestly, the entire staff is great. My one complaint would be the waiting room. Even when just half full, you have people with foot injuries trying to not step on each other and create further foot/toe damage! Ha!

    Well organized office. Cheerful staff and convenience of PT next door. I have been going to Dr Bavarian for years and will continue. I have also referred others. So grateful they take my insurance.

    My feet do not feel normal. I have the beginning of hammer toes and also a burning (nerve???) pain that wakes me at night. I do have pinched nerves in my spine that may be the problem, but I want to make sure that its nothing more serious. My intention is to stop the progression of both and seeking answers as to the cause. Dr B suggested a nerve biopsy and let me wait until he had time to do it that same day. He had a full schedule and squeezed the procedure in. I was very grateful since my drive to your office is lengthy and I had to rent a car for the appt. My followup appt is in a few days.

    The recommendation of Hoka shoes has turned out well. The stiffer soles prevent pain while walking and extend my mobility prior to more drastic surgery or other remedies.

    Of course, then there are my ankle issues and my knees sometimes have similar pain as my big toes while walking down stairs. Luckily, I just returned from a successful ski trip and my knees feel good. So I am still to prevent issues or soften impact with regular exercise... for now.

    I had my surgery 7 months ago. Still some swelling and tightness even though I have fairly good range of motion.
    I think I should see Dr Baravarian for a follow up appointment.

    We started in your Santa Barbara office and after I had been seen you closed that office. I live in San Luis Obispo and the drive to Santa Monica for all the app. was very difficult.

    extremely happy with the whole process - very clean surgery, efficient follow-up appointments, foot looks good technically, staff helpful. would absolutely recommend dr. baravarian - have let my PCP know of my experience so she will continue to refer patients to UFAI. physical therapy group across the hall is also fantastic to work with...expected I would hate PT, but am getting a lot more out of it than I thought i would.

    I’ve been hesitant to say this but the morning of my foot surgery. The surgery center staff in BH were acting unprofessional and on their cell phones. Talking and going on the internet. It made me feel frightened prior to the doctor showing up. My bed was just across from their desks and they were young and immature.
    I wanted to say something then for example be quiet! Or your making me nervous but I chose not to as I was worried about having the procedure in the first place.
    When Doctor B arrived, everyone quieted down and acted more professional.
    I’ve been to a lot of surgery centers throughout the years and this experience prior to the doctors arrival scared me and I felt as thought it was a low budget operation center once out of the waiting room.
    This is just my experience I’m sorry to not mention it earlier.
    It has prevented me from recommending the services of UFAI.
