    I spent a very short period of time with the actual doctor. The current issue has been dealt with well. I was told to eventually come back and take care of another foot that may need work. I could have used a bit more information around the suggested future procedure. The why and the what ... otherwise, all was a pleasant experience.

    The office needs to do a better job between the front office and the accounting office
    1. I was charged with the cream I did not get.
    2. I was asked to pay the balance when I already took care of it a few weeks before

    I appreciated that the front office was quick to correct the mistakes after I mentioned them.

    Dr Saeedie on my appts was excellent at his high level medical skill set and he has the best patient compassion and follow up patient care I have ever experience, UFAI is very lucky!! to have him on staff as a Doctor!! I would highly recommend Dr Saeedie to anyone in need of a foot Doctor specialist and make a appt at UFAI today for the best care!

    I have been seen on time every time and everyone I have dealt with has been wonderful. Great office!
    I have had an extremely difficult time getting an authorization due to DOL problems. I’ve called the office NUMEROUS times and Maria, the receptionists (and anyone else that has had to listen to my panic-stricken calls) have never been anything but patient and understanding. My calls are promptly returned and Maria has explained everything to me as we go. They have never even implied that I am causing an imposition. I can’t thank them enough for all the patience and help they have given me. I may have surgery in my future and I will be sure to write another review afterwards!

    I'm delighted with my visit(s) with Dr Baravarian and his associates. He is kind and explained everything to me in a way that made sense to me. I'm more than happy to recommend him and have already done so.

    It was great care during the pandemic so my orthotics took longer than hoped for but the care is great

    My foot accident took place on May 28, 2020. The earliest appointment I obtained to see the doctor was on June 8. I was advised to take MRI on June 12. I left home in Long Beach early morning. At about 9:30 AM while I was in the vicinity of the Institute I got a call to postpone the MRI to Wed June 17. It was not acceptable to me because I was at the Institute on time, the pain from my foot was intolerable, and there had been no intervention to relieve me of pain. So I showed up at the Institute as per appointment and insisted to have the MRI. Alex "squeezed" me in! and the MRI was undertaken. Alex was very nice, but why all this: last minute changes in scheduling and no response to my swollen and painful foot for so long??? I am now looking forward to my Wed June 17 visit to decide a course of action. That is unless you folks change time at the last minute.

    Dr. Baravarian repaired my Achilles tendon in May of 2005. On the CT scan, at the point of rupture, there was a 1.5 inch gap between the ends of my tendon and the ends were shredded.Soon after the surgery and rehabilitation I resumed playing tennis and I have played since then, for all those years, on regular basis, usually a few times a week. I've also been doing other kinds of exercise.  I never had a slightest issue with my tendon since the surgery.  I'm 66 years old now.I had several appointments with Dr. Baravarian.   First before the surgery and than follow ups after.  He was always nice, he was listening to my questions and always explained the procedures to my satisfaction.

    I was there in January with a referral from Motion Picture Health and was fitted for orthotics, I never received the product or follow up call.
    I called in March and was told that they didn't know what happened and I'm still waiting.

    Dr Redkar is excellent. Her staff are good. Another benefit for me was that Dr Redkar was able to personally check on my when I was in Cedars. She has a support team there that were excellent as well. I am so happy and grateful to have found her.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Baravarian for over 15 years. I fortunately met Dr. B when I returned to CA. after having a foot surgery in New York. If it wern't for Dr. Baravarian's corrective surgery, I wouldn't be walking today. He is without question, a genius in his field. and the most caring and compasionate Doctor I have ever met!
    His staff immulates his example of caring, and always do all they can to accomodate your needs.
