    The receptionist are polite, respectful and helpful. The medical assistants are friendly and understanding. I needed a travel letter and a letter for my work and they were able to provide it the same day with in 5-10 minutes. The doctor listen and take the time to answer questions. During the treatment he was supportive. Overall it was a great experience. The only annoying thing is the cancellations of two of my appointments, but I understand that stuff happens.

    Not much anyone can do for me, I’m a stroke survivor and brain damaged. But your staff does what they can, I wish it were more but it is what it is.

    A scraping procedure on both heels - less than ten minutes - and the sharp pains are gone. Not only is walking back to normal, so is running - resumed next day. Fantastic treatment! Cannot be happier. Many sincere thanks.

    I couldn't ask for better care. I'm so grateful and fortunate I was able to have my bunion surgeries performed by Dr. Baravarian and Dr. Johnson. They are topnotch...the Doctors you have always wished you had... elegant, dedicated, kind, with a gentle sense of humor that makes you feel totally taken care of... All of my questions were answered... The entire staff is just as awesome. (I was able to have my pre-surgical visits at the Sherman Oaks location and my actual surgeries in Beverly Hills.)

    First time I went, I came out confused. Felt rushed. Shared with front desk person next time I went and she shared with doctor. The second time I saw doctor was totally different experience. Felt doctor listened to concerns and took time to help me understand since foot language is all new to me.

    Excellent, Dr briskin, my surgeon, wonderful great job with minimal pain. He explain everything and made me feel very trusting and calm. Dr Johnson, for his kindness, listen to my issues and helping to solve the problems immediately. After the surgery, he came back out to rewrap my cast for me when it was pressing on my ankle and very painful. I am very grateful to him and to the care I receive from both Dr. Briskin and Dr. Johnson.

    Thank you so much Dr. Briskin and team for the great visit. I would not hesitate to schedule a visit with UFAI in the future. The appointment was on time and the doctor was very kind and communicative. The office called me back a few days later with an estimate for the surgery which was reasonable and I extremely appreciated that as well. This office may be a tad more expensive than others but the knowledge/experience in the industry is WORTH IT. You end up paying more in the long run if you are misdiagnosed else where. Cannot say thank you enough!
