    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.

    Waiting room artwork is great but always good to change theme. It’s inexpensive, creative and shows you care about the patient experience.

    I appreciated Dr Briskin's attention to issues I presented and understood the reality that a correction to the orthotics might be improved without suggesting complete new orthotics that would be extremely expensive for Medicare patients.

    Would be helpful to have like a checklist/print out of post-surgery instructions such what to do for pain/ how to sleep (with or without boot) etc.

    It was amazing to finally hear the consensus of my condition and possible treatment options. I’m very happy and wish to fix my problems in as little sessions as possible. I want to get better with your help!

    Thank you for x-raying a painful toe and thereby discovering it was fractured. Since then, however, I continue to have pain and can only wear a pair of loose "Top-siders". How long will the painful toe require to heal? Thank you. E.F. Tuttle

    I rip my Achilles’ tendon from a large bone spur! It took a long time to heal after surgery. I had great care from Dr. Baravarian and his staff. There was not much left of my Achilles when I had the surgery. So the doctor also suggested to get the PPR shots during my recovery!!
    Now I am doing much better!!! Thank you!

    I am happy with Dr Carter’s care. He is interested, kind and helpful. I still don’t know what is causing the pain in my left foot, however, which a cortisone injection of my choosing has not helped. So I am stumped now as to what is the cause and how to treat it.
    I do want to add something about the PT. I went twice and I had the impression that the manager, Greg is it? is not really into his work anymore. He never even looked at or touched my foot or calf to assess where pain was. I was put off by his manner and did not return.

    Dr. Baravarian and his staff treated me well and took the time to go over all important information regarding my feet problems. I would definitely recommend the doctor to anyone looking for foot and ankle help.

    I think time with Dr is a bit limited, seems like lots goes on with the junior trainees versus the lead doc. Would prefer/appreciate a bit more hands on doc time.

    Very attentive PT Staff.
    Visits with Dr are too short and they become a Q and A between Patient and Dr. They feel like a class for the student Drs. I miss the hands on treatment. touching, manipulating, testing the foot range , the walk etc..
    Thank you

    Great, friendly staff. A little nervous about additional costs that might be coming as the statement from my insurance indicated they will not pay about $2k that was charged. (Maybe X-rays?) especially to discover I have limited options for solving the problem I went in for. But yes, everyone was SUPER nice! Looks like the staff really enjoys working there.
