    I got a bill for two $160 appointments and my copay is supposed to be $55 per appointment. I was never made aware there was an issue with my insurance, the office sent me the large bill without notifying me of any issues. I contacted my insurance to help me correct the bill.

    Even though it may be a small clerical error, it makes me feel like they're trying to rip me off and capitalize on my potential absent-mindedness. I essentially had to do the work they were supposed to.

    I wish every doctor's office I went to was as efficient, professional and friendly as the staff at your office.
    Also, I can't say enough wonderful compliments about Dr. Franson. He is the perfect doctor for me.
    I don't live close to Valencia but coming to your office is always worth the trip.
    Thank you

    Dr. Briskin was amazing -- his expertise and his manner. He resolved my emergent situation in a confident, swift, and stress-reducing way. I was
    totally pleased with the outcome.
    Likewise, the staff was a pleasure -- yes, everyone cared for me 'very well.'

    I was an avid hiker until I got side tracked with Hallux rigidus. I spent a few years researching solutions, but it wasn’t until I met with Dr. Franson that I felt I had the confidence to move forward. My left MTPJ fusion went great and I just had my right done a few weeks ago! The staff are great! Very friendly and competent. I’m really looking forward to getting back on the trail!

    Dr. Redkar was very helpful ... sensitive to older adults and unique problems that arise due to aging, ie thinner skin on pads of feet.

    I know I am in the best care however Sometimes I feel very rushed in my appt. It makes me panic to try to think of all my questions and inevitably I forget some. That is honestly something I HATE when going to dr office.
    It’s the only thing I would complain about and if I recommended Dr Baravarian to someone I would just tell that person to be ultra prepared when going into the office.

    I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Carter and all the staff. It’s been exemplary every step of the way.

    Dr. Carter fixed what 2 other surgeons failed to do. Removing metal, and actually cleaning up the cartilage and ligament damage. Whereas the surgeons before hand left me immobilized and only took care of the bone break. Bones heal, but the ligaments and what not need serious treatment right off the bat. Luckily I was helped. Only issue is that now when I touch the entry point of the scope, I get an electric spark throughout my foot. So maybe some minor surface level nerve damage.

    This is for Dr. Carter and his office staff. Prior to my appointment, all of his staff was knowledgeable, responsive, and friendly. Dr. Carter has a great bedside manner and completely put me at ease about my procedure and future treatments. Thanks so much!

    Very smooth experience! Nice people.I went in for some foot pain from a sports collision. Dr. Feldman saw me very soon after I arrived. He gave me a very thorough explanation of the diagnosis (which I appreciated) and how to rehab. Informative and smooth visit with friendly staff.

    Great experience with Dr. Franson. He's knowledgeable, personable, and going straight to the most expensive surgical option isn't his first choice for action. This was my first visit, and I'm sure I'll be back! Anecdotal note, his daughter is in school to be a DPM and is working in the practice. She made my cast for custom orthotics and shares her Dad's great people skills! I suspect there will soon be 2 "Dr. Fransons" in the office soon.

    Dr. Franson's office is run very efficiently. I have never needed to wait more than 10-15 minutes past my appointment time to see Dr. Franson. The staff is friendly and Dr. Franson is easy to talk to and explains everything in clear details.
