    Such a great practice. I have had nothing but amazing visits with Doctor Bob and the staff. Dr. Bob has such a great personality, so positive and helps you understand all that is going on. His confidence and knowledge puts you at ease. Gina is awesome and has been very attentive to my needs both pre surgery & after sugery. Gina has a great future in the field because personality makes all the difference with patients. Cheli is amazing and on top of every piece of paperwork and email, she is 1 in a million... The staff is on top of it, I think the longest wait I've had is 10 min. A fantastic overall experience at University Foot & Ankle Institue of Santa Monica.

    My appointment had to be canceled because the doctor was in the valley office and no one called to reschedule the doctors office or physical therapy

    The doctor, although very knowledgeable, seemed rushed and I did not have the time to ask him many of the questions I had written down. I paid $135 out of pocket and drove down from Sacramento to see him as his resume was impressive and I was looking for an expert in the field of plantar fasciitis. It would have been nice to have at least 20 minutes with him. As it was, I barely had 5 minutes. Hopefully when I see him again, I will have more time. I appreciate the opportunity to give feedback. Thank you.

    The receptionist was not very welcoming but other than that, a good experience. I also was told by the doc I needed physical therapy but never received the prescription for it. I had to follow-up post visit.

    I would highly recommend Dr. Redkar. She thoroughly explained my situation, what to expect during my surgery and after. Her attention to detail and care was very nurturing. I always felt like I was in good hands. Thank you Dr. Redkar!

    The appointment was really quick. I was told some the few things that were wrong with my feet and got tested for insoles same day, after checking with my insurance coverage. I returned a few weeks later and Dr. Baravarian made sure it was all fitting well.

    Great information on my condition. Non-surgery options were fully discussed and implemented. They were not satisfactory so surgery was implemented. Follow up to surgery has been fantastic.

    I waited far too long to have my toe examined out of fear that the surgery and recovery would be excruciating. My arthritis had progressed in my big toe and I had a toe joint replacement. Dr. Briskin, his staff, and Gray in PT were knowledgeable and patient regarding my post-op care and recovery. Now 7 weeks out, the pain is minimal and I am back walking and doing many of my normal low impact activities. I would definitely recommend UFAI to others and come back for myself if ever needed.

    Doctor and staff knowledgeable and experienced. Everything attended to efficiently. Treatments offered with benefits and risks and future expectations of each explained. Evidence based. Personal knowledge of performing the surgeries and watching recoveries of different options inspires confidence in skills and abilities. I’m grateful for the opportunity to come to UFAI.
