    One of the receptionists at the LA office on Pacific Concourse speaks to patients on the phone way too loudly! I don’t know her name, but she may be with the arthritis side of the practice. It’s so awful!

    I went to the office in Sherman Oaks. My Orthopedic Surgeon suggested PRP for my ankle. I asked around and my fiancé who worked for a Stem Cell company and everyone else, suggested stem cells. I googled a number of places that quoted me at $6k. I called this office and they said $1500. I showed up waited over 30 minutes to be seen and the doctor suggested PRP! I said I wanted stem cells and he said it would be 5K and it wouldn't be true stem cells. Bait and switch. I told him his front desk said $1500. He said he needs to talk to her. Dishonest.

    Sorry to complain, but the waiting room/receptionist office smells so bad every single time I have come in for an appointment. It is body odor which is horrible to have to smell while you're waiting to be called. I am sure I am not the only one to complain about this problem, though a quick discussion with the employees at the front desk might help. Dr. Briskin is amazing...a true miracle worker. Perhaps even some type of room freshener could help the problem which comes from the receptionist office.

    More information on the time it might take for the cortisone shot to work would have been helpful. Thanks!

    poor discussion of the balance problem that I have. Itr starts with the feet. More to the point i have calluses on my left big toe and second toe, also the same two toes on the right. They are different, but they send up very acute pain from time to time. And finally the prostheses are wonderful where they fit. I need some discussion about what to do with them. Thanks John

    The wait to see the doctor was about 45 minutes. I would prefer a shorter wait time

    I had bilateral bunion surgery with Dr. Baravarian in December 2017. It has been a month and a half and the results are already fantastic. Dr. Baravarian is very intelligent, professional, genuinely concerned regarding his patients, kind and accommodating. He's also very quick to respond to concerns and incredibly responsive. He responded to all my questions by email immediately, even on the weekend! His office staff in Sherman oaks is also very caring and nice, particularly Cheli, the surgery coordinator in his office. She helped me navigate through the complex and often confusing insurance process, insurance approvals, disability forms, and answered all my questions kindly and quickly. I am very happy I chose Dr. Baravarian as my surgeon and definitely recommend him to everyone.
    Thank you Dr. Baravarian.
