    It would be nicer if the docs took the patients in order. I waited over an hour in a room, while I could hear doc going to rooms of those who arrived long after I did.

    Hello, Dr. B, With all due respect, I think there is a flaw in the design of my custom brace. My ankle bone hurts way too much while/after getting my high arched foot into my brace/shoe due to the stiff plastic contour of the brace fitting like a second skin.and an ankle bone sticking out has to squeeze past said contour. For PRP patients couldn’t an adhesive pad be placed over the torn tendon area and the ankle bone ligament before the plaster of Paris is applied, so there’s a little breathing room for the sensitive areas not to be tortured getting into that brace & shoe? It’s not acceptable, considering I was expecting a comfortable custom brace to wear.
    I need another sponge pad along the Peroneal edge of my foot inserted. OR perhaps my PRP therapy has simply failed?
    I hate everything about Brace #2. I prefer Brace #1, which isn't correcting my gait. I’ve had enough of pain. Aidez-moi, Eileen Thomas

    Staff person when first coming into the room, didn't sound like he knew why I was there. Just to pick up and fit new orthodic shoe inserts. That's why I gave staff and 8.
    The Doctor is always great! Thanks

    I've been a long term patient and my personal informatoon has not changed in all the years I've been coming to the practice. I wish there were a way to update medical records without having to rewrite it all. Other than that small thing, it's a great practice and I'd never go anywhere else.

    My orthodics are much improved. The staff members who helped me were SO
    patient and kind. Dr. Briskin has improved the condition of my feet on many
    occasions in the eleven years that I have been his patient. With sincere
    appreciation,

    After toenails were cut, staff member sanded down nails and rough spots. I bled on a toe and underneath foot. I left with 2 bandages to stop the bleeding. I don't want to get anyone in trouble, or lose a job, but just need to remind staff to be more gentle.

    I did not let him finish the job, so I would really prefer to wait to complete this evaluation.

    Dr. Carter encompasses all the invaluable traits that make him a great Doctor; compassion, knowledge, relatability, sincerity, honorability. Hopefully these qualities will rub off on a seasoned Doctor who places money before the wellbeing of the practice’s pstients.

    Dr. Baravarian is so awesome, but it doesn't stop there. The whole staff is so caring, professional and knowledgeable. The entire practice is so pleasant and there is very little wait for the doctors, who are all so great with a fantastic bedside manner. Even the physical therapy group is so helpful. I have recommended this practice to many friends and family.

    I have chronic plantar fasciitis and have had foot surgery and seen multiple other podiatrists. Dr. Franson is the only one who has ever been able to make orthotics that actually help me.
