    Great office, only downside is every visit, even if it’s just a fitting for inserts has a co-pay.

    Dr Baravarian,

    Thank you for the opportunity to give my comments..
    I first visited you 6 years ago. You were forthright then about my need for bunion surgery. I delayed b/c I had not experienced any real discomfort.
    My next visit was in October 2019 and again you were polite, professional and forthright. I needed the surgery. Your outline of expectations pre and post surgery has helped me prepare and manage the recovery. The surgery day was routine and pleasant.
    I also appreciate the support of your associate, Dr. Saeedi and surgery coordinator Cheli Mendoza. And I look forward to every post op PT work with Gray and Lydia. They have educated me about the recovery and designed a program that has results.
    I would not hesitate to recommend UFAI to anyone in need of your professional care.. Thank you

    Dr. Briskin is one of the greatest doctors in Los Angeles.
    He is very knowledgable and his treatments are effective and easy.
    (I am currently in NM so it will be a while for the next appointment; I understand there is a report)
    Dr. Baravarian is also great.
    The front desk is efficient and the billing dept. is easy to reach.
    Every appointment at University Foot and Ankle is practically a vacation.

    Very pleased with my care at ufai. Dr Briskin and staff are wonderful. I’ve come in to treat two foot and ankle injuries within the last 6 years, and also get my orthotics for my probation. Thanks for everything and see you soon!

    Wish they would have made me two orthotics. One for everyday shoe and one for a workout shoe. Now they want me to come back. With the lockdown, this is a bad idea.

    The waiting in the room seemed a bit long before I saw the doctor . He was great as usual, and the staff was friendly, but more communication about the wait would have been preferred

    I know that Dr. B is an excellent Doc, but the reason I did not give a 10 is because he has so many patients that I feel like his time with me is too short. He is always pleasant and knowledgeable, but he is always in a rush. I often have questions that arise out of the visit, but several times, when I have thought of these, he is on his way out to see another patient and I feel as if I need to cut my conversation short. I have left the office more than once without all the information I needed. That is not my ideal model for medical care.

    Although the quality of care and surgery itself was flawless, there was a noticeable lack of after-care communication and the expectation of recovery time was greatly minimized. I recommend that after surgery (no matter how small of a procedure) there should be a standard after-care hand out to the patient so that they would have a realistic expectation of recovery and some sort of a communication line as to who/when to call if any issues.
