    I can't recommend Dr. Briskin and the entire University Foot and Ankle staff highly enough. I've been seeing doctor briskin for a couple of years now, and it's always been a positive experience. From the ease and flexibility of making an appointment, to the friendly front desk staff and PA's, and Dr. Briskin's friendly nature and professionalism; you just can't go wrong in choosing University Foot and Ankle. I've also gone to their physical therapists across the hall and again, couldn't have been happier with all of the staff and my results. I would give them all more than 5 stars if it were possible.

    I am so thankful that I found Dr. Carter! He is knowledgeable, honest, and really worked with me as an athlete to do what was best. He took the time to listen to my situation and take the best course of action for my ankle in the short and long term. I healed faster than expected and felt very well taken care of at every step of the process.

    I told Dr. B and the assistants that attended to me that I have, and have had for about 4 years, a strange feeling in my toes and ball of my foot that feels as if the tissue is filled with crumbled up Styrofoam. I feel this, for example, if I curl my toes.
    I asked Dr B and the assistants at both sessions, "What is the name of this symptom? What is causing it? Is there some treatment or therapy that can eliminate the feeling of crunched styrofoam?
    I never received an answer to this question. There were sort of puzzled looks and then, immediately, the topic would shift to creating orthotics for my feet.
    Well, I have and wear, the orthotics. But I would still like to know why I feel crunching styrofoam in my feet. Is it a problem with the nerves? Do other patients ever mention a similar feeling?

    I had to wait in the exam room too long in my opinion. I alerted staff several times that I had to leave for work but they didn't seem to understand the urgency. I had to leave and come back the next day to pick up my orthotics

    Overall, he was able to identify issues with other areas that could be contributing to the pain in my feet

    Excellent treatment from all of the staff, especially Dr. Briskin. He explained what he would be doing each step of the procedure. He was truly focused on me and I felt that he spent a good amount of time taking care of me. He was relaxed and he was not rushing through to get to the next patient. I am completely happy with the results and will keep him and his office in mind for future needs.

    It’s very inconvenient to call the call center for appointments. Why can’t each office answer and make appointments on their own.

    I went to 5 drs before deciding on Dr. Bavarian to do my bunion surgery and I can't tell you how happy I am with him. I had bunion surgery 30 years ago that was terrible and if I did not need it so bad I would have never done the other foot. Not only did I have virtually no pain, I literally have no scar. He could not have been better. Then I broke my foot and he took such good care of me but my foot did not seem to be hearing. After a few months of pain in my foot pain Dr. B realized that it was coming from my back and sent me to an excellent dr that helped with my back pain also. I cannot say enough great things about Dr. B. He is the best at what he does and his staff is excellent also.

    Dr. Briskin has cared for several foot fractures and helped me heal very well each time. Most recently he recommended physical therapy to correct heel and ankle pain that developed, possibly from wearing a boot during recovery from the last fracture. With therapy, the heel and ankle pain have both been eliminated. I’m now continuing the exercises to increase my chances of preventing future fractures. Dr. Briskin and all the staff are terrific. They truly care and are always gentle and encouraging. The make appointments available promptly for any issue. I’m very grateful to be able be turn to them and always receive outstanding care.
