    The staff is friendly and professional. If you're on time, they are on time, which makes for shorter wait times to be seen. Dr. Baravarian explains foot conditions and problems very well, and I would recommend him and UFAI for any foot related problem. The physical therapy department is very good also.

    Even though I was told to return to have further testing and see a different Dr., I was given more info on my 8 year old ankle implant than 5 orthopedics over 8 years combined had come close to telling me!
    Thank you!!

    Please let me know what time my mother in law can pickup my orthotics on Friday. They need to fly to Europe on Saturday and it's my last chance to get them.

    The best of the best of the best!

    I saw Dr. Carter when I was first injured but due to insurance, I had to have a different surgeon. Later, due to an insurance change, I was incredibly lucky enough to get Dr. Carter to take over in my process of healing. He is fantastic!!! From his 'bedside' manner to his gentleness of care and real honest NEED to help, I can't say enough great things about him! I am so grateful to be finally on a road to recovery!!!!!

    Dr. Briskin has given me excellent follow through with what I hope is a passing problem. With his advice and PT, I'm healing beautifully, without invasive procedures. Dr. Briskin's manner is engaging, with empathy and informative. I could not be happier with his care.
