    It's unfortunate to break my Achilles tendon, but I am fortunately to have Dr. Baravarian who took my phone call in the evening, and subsequently, provided me with the professional treatment. After 2 days of moderate post-operation pain, I am on the way of recovery.

    Additionally, I am fortunate to have the facility's surgery coordinator, Cheli Mendoza, who not only got everything arranged for my operation, but also explained in great length about the billing, including reaching out to the insurance company multiple times to clarify a confusing matter for me.

    It's a good experience at University Foot and Ankle Institute.

    Dr. Carter looked at me from every perspective he made sure that I wasn’t gonna be getting the procedure in pain and then was able to guide me to the team and take a chance that I could get rid of the pain without surgery as there wasn’t really a good thing that could come out of the surgery I needed. In the end I’m not able to run .

    Dr. Ryan Carter is a wonderful gentleman and an excellent podiatrist. I only trust him to be my podiatrist going forward. He's the best and deserves recognition.

    Always great care and office staff is ver accommodating.

    Billing in the other hand could use some improvement. Sometimes insurance isn’t always billed correctly.

    I had a very good experience and the nurse/assistant was very kind and helpful. I have a balance issue and he was very kind towards my fearfulness on stepping on the scale for balance. And of course, Dr Briskin was great, Forgotbto write nurse name was Steven,

    I have an 8 only because I wasn't informed on my first visit that I had a torn muscle in my foot that was discovered flowing an MRI at your facility. Other than that everything was great!!

    Questions I'd like answers to since I didn't get to ask:

    Will I need crutches?
    Will I be able to drive?
    How long will I be on crutches or not able to bear weight on the foot?
    When will be able to start walking?
    How long will the surgery take?
    What benefits does this surgery have, in terms of pain relief and function?
    How long will the benefits last?
    What risks are associated with this surgery?
    What is the success rate for this surgery?
    Will the surgery need to be repeated after a certain amount of time?
    Will you do the surgery or will someone else?
    What kind of anesthesia will be used?
    Will the anesthesiologist know about my allergies?
    Will I have pain following the surgery?
    What pain relievers will I be given?

    Thank you
