    Only complain, but hit has nothing to do with your work, is the traffic when getting to your office in Santa Monica.

    Only major pain point with therapy was always having to call in to make an appointment. Need to update your system to allow for online scheduling.

    Dr. Bob is a very skilled foot surgeon who makes you feel confident he can fix your foot issue.

    Once we agreed on surgery, he did exactly what he said he would do and my feet are healing nicely. Strongly recommend Dr. Bob.

    Dr. Carter has been taking very good care of me. He has been very thorough, reassuring, and professional. He guided me through my first surgery with confidence by explaining the procedure and its outcomes. He listened to my concerns, and had an experienced and complete answer for everything. He has ensured that I have everything I need, and has made my experience as comfortable as possible. I didn't once doubt that my care was in the right hands.

    Could the doctor perhaps treat you with more difference namely give you more time and do not try to get rid of you as soon as possible

    Dr Baravarian and his team are amazing! I had a very painful plantar fasciitis for almost 10 years. Tried almost everything but all of other treatments and doctors just failed to heal my foot. Thank you Dr I can walk painlessly again!

    I had a great experience with Dr. Baravarian and the entire office. Everyone is professional, friendly and everything runs in a timely manner. I never felt rushed with Dr. Baravarian; he took the time to review all my options and explain them thoroughly. His surgery incorporated the most recent advances and my surgery and recovery went far better than I had anticipated. If you have foot issues or need foot surgery this is a first rate practice.

    Don't like on the spot charges as you leave office. Billing preferred. Overpayment due to uncalculated insurance payments is unfair to patient. (But great for you).

    Last week I was in LA for work and I stumbled over a curb. Aside from the embarrassment, I sprained my ankle. I thought it was just a little sprain but the next day it was really sore, really purple and hurt like hell.

    I called UFAI and they got me in the same day. Amazing! I saw Dr. Briskin and what a lovely man! He did xrays and it turned out I really did screw up my ankle. I had to get back to Palm Desert the next day so he gave me a walking boot, ice pack and exact instructions for care. He also gave me a personal reference for physical therapy in the desert.

    It was a great experience, except for hurting myself, of course. I'll be back in LA next week and will get my checkup with Dr. Briskin. I trust him, and to me that means a lot.

    I am very happy with the care I receive from UAFI and Dr. Briskin. They have taken very good care of my foot and provided me the ability to continue normal every day activities even while healing.
