    It has taken a very long time to schedule my surgery. I’m still not sure when when it will happen.

    Santa Monica waiting room is badly arranged. Space between seats is not adaquate for people who have foot injuries or mobility issues. When I was there a woman had two pre-teen kids that she was not supervising, the staff could hear the unruliness but did nothing. When one child stepped on my sore foot I reluctantly and pleasantly commented to the mother, she apologised. Should not have been my issue, was an office issue.
    Also, when I received a call from your office..the business name did not appear , so I did not answer.. would save your office lots of time if it your buisness was identified by name

    The only negative I have is the front office employee
    She is very Rude and dismissive Never looks you in the eye
    I understand that she is great with the paperwork, but she is the fist introduction to your business,and that could be a real turn off

    I would have appreciated during my consultation to speak with the doctor for more than 12 minutes.

    I would have felt better if the issue with my left heel was at least addressed after an X-ray was taken...there were none. I was there less than 10 minutes and I left the office less than confident that my issue would be taken care of. His staff did address the issue with my right foot which made for a successful visit but that was not the case for my main issue...my left heel! My doctor was VERY good in my first visit to see him but this last visit was less than stellar and went by in a blur...I didn’t leave feeling like I was taken care of. He has recommended physical therapy And orthotics for my issue but I Would have left there feeling more confident with his diagnosis and recommendations if he had taken a few minutes to at least look at it closely...that didn’t happen!! I’m going to do the physical therapy and get the orthotics as he has prescribed and hope that it helps.

    Only feedback is that I wish the main doctor would spend a little more time with me. He was great and provided a lot of good detail in a short amount of time, but he was in and out within a minute or two. I have a number of various issues and it felt like we didn't discuss everything 100% . But still it was a good experience for me.

    Dear Dr. Baravarian,
    As per my EMG/NCS Report of left leg & foot, I have damage to the Peroneal nerve in left ankle. And I have 3
    L5 S1 related muscle/nerves that are reduced by 75%
    causing Sciatica and leg-foot atrophy.
    There are many words on the report of this a.m. that I’ll have to look up. And see a Spine doctor.

    I. Am so grateful for Dr. Briskin and Dr. carter as well as their assistants and clerical staff. Everyone is always kind, courteous, and professional. I’ve never waited more than 5 minutes to be called in for my appointment. By far one of my best medical experiences to date because of the doctors and staff!
