    I wish the Dr would spend more time with his patients. He always seems to be in a hurry to get to the the next patient. The care wasn’t like this when I first came to this office 5 years ago. I don’t like feeling like I’m just another number in the appointment schedule lineup.

    I’ve recommended you, Dr. Redkar, to numerous people already. Your name, address and phone number have been requested from people I know and many whom I’ve only met while walking with that special boot on my foot.
    Your staff, both at your office and surgery center have excelled in patient care (customer service), professionalism, kindness and sincerity. Every single person whom I’ve met in your establishment have been 100% on point! Thank you all, once again, for taking such wonderful care of me and my feet!

    The associate (not main dr) who saw us first did a terrible job telling my ten year old that he’s need a shot in his toe. It totally freaked my son out and once the real dr looked at it, it turned out he didn’t need the shot at all. Totally unnecessary fear mongering for no reason. Dr. B was excellent but that other doctor needs a bit more experience working with people, especially children.

    The “Bunion Study” staff appeared unable to effectively communicate requisite information. Excuses and faulty reasoning always followed, and therefore what could have been a pleasure, was compromised.

    I had a foot problem and called UFAI. What a great choice. The staff was great and welcoming. Dr. Briskin was amazing. He took care of my foot, explained what he was doing, and the cause. I am back to pain free walking. Great results. Thank you.

    At carter is the best physician I have ever deal with. It actually brought me to tears in his office when he told me he was leaving. A bright and great guy, I can’t say enough good about him, and that’s a lot since I have been in healthcare executive leadership for 19 years and a nurse for 20.

    Dr. Baravarian is fantastic. His team are nice and helpful, facility clean and easy to access. My overall experience there has been a wonderful one. I came in with some ankle pain and was recommended PRP. After two injections I feel there has been a great improvement and while I may need further treatments due to the high impact sports I engage in, I know Dr. Baravarian and his team will know the best way to guide me. I highly recommend them for any of your foot or ankle ailments.

    First Let me start by saying that Dr. Bob Baravarian is a master at what he does. I had suffered with bunions, hammer toes and Morton's neuroma problems for quite a while before meeting him. I tried cortisone shots, physical therapy and orthotic insoles. Although these things took the edge off, they were just not a permanent fix for me. After meeting Dr. Bob within the first 10 minutes, I knew he was the one to help me. His confidence, his knowledge and the way he explained in detail the issues I had and how he could fix them, made me feel very comfortable. He has a great bedside manner, and also if you send him an email, he will always get back to you promptly. Once, I was worried about an upcoming surgery and had a question late on a Friday night, so I emailed him thinking he might not get back to me till the next business day, but instead he responded in less than 10 minutes giving me the reassurance that I needed.

    The surgeries that Dr. Bob had performed on my feet had been a lot easier than what I thought they would be, they have been very little to no pain at all. Also, immediately after surgery I am given a walking boot so I could get around, and then prescribed physical therapy and back on my feet in no time. Most recently, I just had a foot surgery four weeks ago, and I am already back on my feet and on my exercise bike and feeling great. I highly recommend Dr. Bob Baravarian and his team for any foot issues you may have, they are simply the best, and for that I am thankful.

    Dr Franson is a phenomenal surgeon - and even more importantly, a truly good person. A great man who is great because his compassion is not worn on his sleeves but demonstrated in his natural kindness and humanity.

    Staff at UFAI/Valencia is similarly kind and thoughtful. A wonderful practice.

    Transition from Dr. Carter to Dr. Baravarian was seamless, and I was happy that I did not have to reschedule my surgery. I feel like I am in very capable hands with Dr. Baravarian and the staff.
