    Gary is great. Really like him. Wait time is a bit long. It was not made clear to me whether I needed to make a follow up appointment. I got a copy of my xrays because I still have significant pain in the big toe and I've had success with cortizone injections, so wanted to take the xrays to that doctor so I could get a shot. I think Gary was saying short of surgery there was nothing that could be done, which caused me to go elsewhere for relief. When I got the records they read that I would ice for a week and see how that goes. Which led me to believe he may have wanted to see me again but I'm still not sure. My impression was there was no solution short of surgery....which I want to avoid. I may try PRP or cortizone. Maybe you can clarify.

    I was told twice by someone in your office that my insurance does not pay well. I thought that if a doctor decided to accept certain insurance company, that he agrees to it’s payment policy.

    There was a little confusion when I came in b/c i had cancelled an MRI and it didn't seem to show in my records so I had to inform the assistant about that and explain what didn't seem to be recorded in the files...

    From the very first phone call, to walking in the door, I knew that this would be one of the greatest medical experiences that I've had! Everybody is so genuinely kind, patient and extraordinary professional. Dr. Briskin is the kind of doctor I wish every one of my doctors could be like!

    Did not have to wait and the staff was polite and friendly. Dr Baravarian was professional yet helpful. Just wish there were more options besides surgery for Morton's Neuroma!
