    We take Dr. Briskin's medical skill for granted -- his dry humor is a bonus!

    I was worried that Dr. Carter was young and the last one listed on the roster. At first I was uncomfortable with the thought that he might not have as much experience as the other doctors on the roster. But as I spoke to him I began to feel comfortable and decided to give him a chance. After all everyone in every industry is a novice at first. But I am still in the throes of completing this process of recovery. So we will see what happens.

    If you are looking for a foot Dr.Carter takes his time to hear your concerns about your feet and he is very knowledgeable and patience .I am very happy that I went to see him because my other feet Dr doctor that I have Previous he will just asked you what wrong and he will just look at your feet and send you for x-rays ,but Dr.Carter is totally different he check your feet using his hands and then send you for X-Rays and you come back to see him and he talks to you about the findings and he tells you different solutions and therapy .Go see him if you have feet problems.

    I have had the best experience with Dr. Baravarian and staff. Dr. B answered all my questions and the staff has been so helpful and most importantly, my bunion surgery is a huge success. I'm very happy and that is putting it mildly.

    There has been some difficulty in obtaining copies of the billings for the office visits that identify the total billings and what was paid at the time of the visit in the office, cost of wound care products, and now the cost of the amniotic membrane grafts. These have been needed for the Kaiser Claims and IRS.

    Whether it's call backs or lost/wrong email addresses, or a complete absence of response, this has been surprising. It's hard to imagine this is an unusual or unique request.

    Everyone and everything else just outstanding to work with from the very first phone call.

    This is my podiatrist the great Dr. Gary Briskin. He is not only an incredibly nice guy....he's also one of the best Dr's of any kind I've ever had. He's truly knowledgeable with state of the art everything but also  has the communication skills to lay out the information you need in a way that is easy to understand ...even for me and puts you at ease. Just an incredible office filled with people who are not only very good at what they do but seem happy to be doing that job. Highly recommend this guy and his crew. I don't own stock in his company...I'm just  a patient .....and that's the point....they seem to treat everyone this way.

    The whole staff is amazing from Dr. Ryan to making sure my care was excellent and went above and beyond to make-up for the lack of care I had received previously from another doctor's office. Irma was great at helping me to schedule all my appointments and patient with my schedule. Lydia, Grey and Tammi are absolutely amazing. I felt complete trust in their care.

    I did not appriciate the fact that I was chagred two consultation fees for something which was purly a remake of what I have originally paid for .
    I delivered and picked up my previous custome made mold by your clinice just to have a 2nd insole made.
    The receptionist insisted for me to pay $75 each time I stepped into your clinic, In my view for " No Good Reason". Dr Briskin is an excellent doctor with very good bedside manner, that is why I will always be back. However, In my opinion this type of charges is not a classy approach to your loyal client.

    Would like Dr to give me some in depth explanations to prepare me mentally & emotionally as to what I should expect, how long pain will last now that I’m out of wheelchair
    Also I tweaked my knee first day out of wheelchair. I’d like a reality check. Am I looking at several more months, would like to understand more about pain Mgmt
    Dr said I can drive, but I can’t! Knee is slowing down progress too. Thank u
    Employees are kind & caring, especially Bernardo!
