    Dr. Hormuz provided me with a short list of bullet points regarding things she had discussed with me. I found this very helpful. I wish more of my doctors would do this.

    Dr. Briskin and staff were exactly what you want and need from a doctor. I wish he was my actual PCP he's that good.
    He listened to my situation and literally made me feel heard--finally! He didn't blow off my symptoms as nothing like so many doctors have done -- even my PCP.
    Dr. Briskin knew right away what I was potentially facing with an autoimmune disorder that caused my situation based on just LISTENING to my symptoms.
    (Symptoms that another podiatrist with "42yrs experience" didn't bother to listen to and literally laughed in my face - not kidding, he laughed in my face - thinking I was making things up. As if anyone would want to make up deformed looking feet that came out of nowhere in a matter of weeks. )
    Can't recommend Dr. Briskin and the University Foot and Ankle Institute, Santa Monica enough!! The only thing I wish was improved was that they were integrated with MyChart for streamlined labwork sharing, but I'll take a great doctor over computer software preference:)!

    Dr. Briskin was one of the few doctors I've dealt with who didn't blow off my situation and made me feel heard.
    I could barely get that from my PCP. Now I Wish Briskin was my PCP!

    I was very happy with my treatment. I've been to orthopedic doctors for other reasons and was given scant information and rushed through my appointments. Podiatrist Dr. Johnson took the time to show me the x-rays and explain everything thoroughly. He came up with a 5-point plan to address my ankle/foot pain that didn't involve surgery or cortisone (the seemingly routine prescription from orthopedic doctors) and now I am on my way to being pain free. I rate him 10 out of 10!

    I'd never been to a podiatrist before - This experience was as easy and professional and pleasant as it could possibly have been. Hope I have no more problems, but if I do - this is absolutely where I'll go

    PS - I didn't get my doctor's name - and can't give it to you now. I loved her! She was great. Right to the point - though warm and friendly - and took care of me in nano-time.

    Exceptionally nice staff members and Doctors! I’ve only been to the facility once for the consultation. Someone was supposed to contact me to follow up with setting up surgery, however I have heard nothing back from them yet and it’s been about a week and a half almost 2 weeks now
