    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

    I found out that I had arthritis in my right large toe. The doctor recommended orthotics custom-made by his office. I had my doubts because it was definitely on the pricey side but in the end it was very much worth it. When I walk now with the proper shoes which are definitely on the stepside in the orthotics the pain from the arthritis has subsided by over 90%. I’m really grateful since There is so much less pain to deal with when I walk. For me Santa Monica foot care did an excellent job!

    Staff is very pleasant and the doctor is great! I think it would be helpful for the practitioners to know the patient’s chart and whether they need x-Rays or what the visit is for!
    Thank you

    Wish I would have had more time with the Dr. Also, they took x-rays, but didn't show me the X-Rays or give me a copy or discuss them when the Dr. came in. Normallt, the run has a computer where they can pull up the X-Ray or the Dr has a laptop or tablet that has the X-Ray and that he can show you, etc

    Dr. Ryan Carter is. A wonderful podiatrist and an excellent person.  Dr.    Carter deserves recognition for serving the public in a humanitarian way. He is a  gentleman and he is very knowledgeable caring thorough and attentive. He has the most elegant manners and disposition which is very rare especially in 2018!!!  I came to him after I had a freak accident in which a beauty salon chair squished my foot while I was getting a haircut, and as a result I had a lot of anxiety and was shock.   Dr. Carter is very intuitive  he knew exactly what to say  to help me with my anxiety.  If only all the medical professionals were as caring professional kind and helpful like Dr. Carter the world would be a much better place!   Besides Dr. carter the staff is also excellent especially Bernardo the x ray techinician.  They are all very helpful  answered all my questions as well as treated me with the utmost respect and care.    The best part about the office is that you don't have to wait long and they get you in and out as fast as possible.

    Great doctor. Very honest and knows what he is doing. The staff are very nice as well. Took my mother there for visit and since she was a high risk for surgery Dr Baravarian provided other solutions instead of surgery.
    Highly recommend!

    The doc doesn’t spend much time in appointments. Seems to be in a rush and not fully listen.
