    The doctor (Dr. Bob Baravarian) and his entire staff are wonderful. I have benefited tremendously by the expertise of this surgeon and then the follow-up exercises of the physical therapist. I would definitely recommend this office to anyone who is suffering with problems with their feet.

    Dr. Briskin seemed rushed but was able to diagnose my problem and come up with a solution. I would have liked it if he was able to spend a little more time with me for questions.

    Currently, my foot still feels as if it is continuing to heal. It cramps up from time to time as I move about more and more. So far, so good.

    Before that, Dr. Carter had me in a boot for 4-6 weeks and my foot was not getting better. I realize that at my age healing takes longer.

    It was kind of pushy to send three reminders for me to fill out this survey. I admire Dr Briskin very much and so I gave it all tens. However at this visit I did not see doctor Briskin, I saw someone else because Dr Briskin was ill.

    For this reason I did not fill out a survey asking me how my visit with Dr briskin went.

    You have these automatic surveys, you have your automated phone calls, etc. As a patient I will say that your system needs some work. I got multiple phone calls even though I did everything the prompts on your phone call asked me to do. And I got some calls reminding me to reschedule an appointment I'd already rescheduled and been to. It definitely has a lot of flaws.

    Automation can save labor, this is true. But at this time it is also alienating your patients with its ineptitude.

    so many appointments! and it wouldn't be so difficult if the office wasn't about an hour from home, sadly with little results.

    instead of having patients fill out all the same insurance/consent forms every year, just ask if it's still all accurate and initial/date. Will save lots of unnecessary time.

    Wonderful experience!
    This was a second visit to remove my 93 year old mother’s corns from her little toe. The receptionist was pleasant & very efficient. The nurse who prepped her was smiling & quick to setup. Dr. Baravarian has a delightful bedside manner. He assessed the toe while chatting with my mother and in just a blink of an eye, the procedure was completed. No pain. My mother was so happy with the visit and outcome. Dr. Bob reassured her that she could come in anytime to repeat the process as necessary. Thank you Dr. Bob!
