    Dr Baravarian is a gifted surgeon who is kind and helpful. UFAI is the only place i recommend to my family and friends. Medical Assistants are kind and caring. Reception needs to be more welcoming

    I saw Dr.Baravarian for the first time although I’d seen Dr.Franson in the Valencia location several times prior. Baravian was recommended by a DPM for evaluation of complications I experienced following foot surgery.I found him a bit dismissive and not really interested in treating me which was ok because I was scheduled to see Dr.Franson later the same day whose ratings would be 10 across the board.I’m fond of UFAI simply because of Dr.Franson. I can’t comment on Dr.Baravarian’s knowledge simply because he didn’t share much with me after deciding that “I did not need him,” but provided a reference to someone he felt was more suitable for me. I can say I respect his honesty. Yes,the office does require a credit card being left on your account but I was billed appropriately.

    The place was great! The only very minor criticism is that I came away unsure of what to expect in the future. How long I would probably be in the boot? What would impact that? Will it definitely fix it or could I need more drastic measures down the line? Etc.

    My husband was a regular patient of Dr. Briskin. My son also sees him.
    When the problem with my foot arose, my son recommended
    that i see him and reminded me that i had seen him once or twice. The office visit was wonderful in the respect that xrays were taken and
    explained to me and I better understood the problem with my foot. Dr.
    Briskin is an excellent doctor and the office staff is welcoming and
    efficient.

    I had an appointment to pick up my orthotics at the Santa Monica location and when I arrived there I was told there was no appointment for me.
    I was told that my appointment had been cancelled, which I was not aware of. Furthermore, my appointment had been made for the Sherman Oaks office, which I've never been to.
    Since it was only picking up the orthotics, it wasn't that important but I had still made the appointment.
    After some confusion on whether the orthotics were even in the office, they were found and Dr Baravarian's assistant fitted my orthotics.
    Please be more mindful when making appointments for people.
