    I love Dr. Briskin and I have great faith in him. I saw Dr. Saheedi for my last visit. He did an excellent job on my toenails, but made the extreme suggestion that I might need to see a vascular surgeon for my swollen foot. I consider surgery extreme; I don't even like pills. I ran to my internist and he quickly said no to seeing a surgeon. Dr. Briskin would never have suggested that. Perhaps Dr. Saheedi is too close to medical school to believe first in non-invasive treatment.

    Dr. Franson has been amazing. He thoroughly answers questions and educates his patients, which I absolutely love. He is consistently friendly, kind and caring. He takes a conservative approach and does not pressure you into one particular treatment plan but works alongside his patients, while informing them in detail of the best options for them. In my experience suffering a severe ankle injury, I have been so grateful and blessed to have Dr. Franson as my doctor.

    Grey, Lydia, Tammy, and Irma have all been spectacular during my recovery following successful surgery by Dr. Baravarian. I'm at the end of my physical therapy, and, though I'm happy I made it, I'll be sad to say goodbye to this team. I could not have done it without their encouragement, putting up with my impatience, and challenging me when I needed to be challenged out of my comfort zone. Taking home lots of exercises to do for the rest of my recovery, and also to continue over time for my health.

    Dr. Saeedi is exceptional. He takes great care and makes you feel very comfortable. I really felt like he took time to make sure that I understood everything clearly and he answered all my questions. He listened to everything I said carefully too and respected my feelings about my situation and what I had been through before coming to him. He also took a lot of consideration when helping me figure out a treatment that would be best for me. I think he's a really good doctor and I am lucky to have been under his care.

    Felt very comfortable coming into the office. Scheduling was such that i didn't run into any other patients and the office was clean and all staff masked. As always, Dr Redkar is the best.

    Dr. Briskin was great, and the staff were even better. However I was not comfortable with the social distancing in the waiting room and would be hesistant to return except for a health crisis, which is why I gave a rating of 7 instead of 10.

    When I went in for a follow up appointment on 4/22/20, mid corona crisis, I was surprised that you were not limiting the number of people in your waiting room. There were far too many of us, and it was awkward. I discussed it with Dr.Briskin and he shared my concerns. I have not been back since, and I can only hope you have taken more appropriate measures to ensure proper social distancing in your waiting room.

    The staff was all knowledgeable, polite, and helpful. There's one minor thing (super high-maintenance, I know) that I'd suggest:

    Close the doors. I noticed there's a culture of leaving the exam room doors open before the exam. I saw other patients waiting in their rooms as I walked in, and others looked at me when I was sitting there with my foot raised. It also happened when I was getting my CT scan...I was standing there for a few minutes (door open) with the lead shield on and a random woman walked by and said, "oh, that looks heavy." It's really not a big deal but it's just a little awkward. I'd feel more comfortable if you closed the door until Dr. Bob was ready to see me/do the test.

    I have nothing but positive things to say about my time with UFAI. I've always been treated with care and respect, but since the COVID-19 pandemic has started they have been truly exemplary in how they have managed their services to always put my safety first, while also continuing to provide the same excellent service as always.
