    Dr. Redkar is excellent. I am very happy with her thoroughness, and how clearly she explains what she can and cannot do. She also followed up with me after my recent surgery to be sure I was doing all my post-op procedures. It was the most pleasant surgical experience I have ever had. Love her!!!

    I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Baravarian.
    I had two surgeries with him. I've already recommended "Dr. Bob" to several friends and colleagues in my industry.
    Wishing Dr. Baravarian a great and successful career!

    I presented dr B with mri results of my back before any procedures were performed. I have a pinched nerve in my lower back that is causing most of my feet pain. I was given a shot in my lower back last week and most of my feet pains have been eliminated.

    From start to finish I was impressed with the quality of my care! I had previously gone to urgent care when I hurt my ankle. They gave me crutches and sent me, "walking". When my ankle was not better a week later i did some online research and found UFAI. Was I ever glad I did! Dr. B. figured it out from looking at the urgent care xrays, things they totally missed. I was fitted for a boot and my ankle felt tremendously better immediately!

    The doctor was great but he left rather quickly. I had a few more questions but he had left for the day. Maybe if you had checked in and said he was leaving that would have helped ?

    I schedule my appointments as early as possible, so I can drive back across town and make it into work on time. Before my appt., the receptionist informed me that I needed to fill out several pages of my medical history, medications, etc. I believe I have been seeing Dr. Baravarian for at least ten years and have provided that information previously, more than once. First of all, that information is on file and if anything needed to be updated, as UCLA does, I could have been given a copy of the previously completed forms and asked if anything had changed. Secondly, at 7:55 am, right before my appointment, and right before I have to race back across town to get to work, I do not have the time or patience to provide information that has already been provided--multiple times. Ideally, I could have been emailed with the previously completed forms and asked to update the information at my convenience. I did not appreciate the insistence or attitude of the receptionist & told her, that as I did not have the info available and did not see the need to provide it all again, I should probably just go. I filled out a bit of it and she suggested I take it w/me during the appt. Still angry...

    Fortunately, my visit was a minor one. I was happy on how I was taken care of.
    Right now, my problem is a once a year one.
    Appreciate your help, when needed.

    The waiting area is very cramped. It’s very uncomfortable to sit there with a foot injury while people walk by and accidentally bang your feet. Is there any way to make the waiting area more spacious?

    All the Physicians and staff are caring and compassionate AND INTERESTED in the patients. I felt they noticed what I did or didn't do that was conducive to my recovery and reminded me to act in my best interest. I have ALREADY begun recommending UFAI to colleagues and friends. I am well and mostly pain free thanks to all of you.
