    Dr. Baravarian repaired my Achilles tendon in May of 2005. On the CT scan, at the point of rupture, there was a 1.5 inch gap between the ends of my tendon and the ends were shredded.Soon after the surgery and rehabilitation I resumed playing tennis and I have played since then, for all those years, on regular basis, usually a few times a week. I've also been doing other kinds of exercise.  I never had a slightest issue with my tendon since the surgery.  I'm 66 years old now.I had several appointments with Dr. Baravarian.   First before the surgery and than follow ups after.  He was always nice, he was listening to my questions and always explained the procedures to my satisfaction.

    I was there in January with a referral from Motion Picture Health and was fitted for orthotics, I never received the product or follow up call.
    I called in March and was told that they didn't know what happened and I'm still waiting.

    Dr Redkar is excellent. Her staff are good. Another benefit for me was that Dr Redkar was able to personally check on my when I was in Cedars. She has a support team there that were excellent as well. I am so happy and grateful to have found her.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Baravarian for over 15 years. I fortunately met Dr. B when I returned to CA. after having a foot surgery in New York. If it wern't for Dr. Baravarian's corrective surgery, I wouldn't be walking today. He is without question, a genius in his field. and the most caring and compasionate Doctor I have ever met!
    His staff immulates his example of caring, and always do all they can to accomodate your needs.

    Dr Baravarian,

    Thank you for the opportunity to give my comments..
    I first visited you 6 years ago. You were forthright then about my need for bunion surgery. I delayed b/c I had not experienced any real discomfort.
    My next visit was in October 2019 and again you were polite, professional and forthright. I needed the surgery. Your outline of expectations pre and post surgery has helped me prepare and manage the recovery. The surgery day was routine and pleasant.
    I also appreciate the support of your associate, Dr. Saeedi and surgery coordinator Cheli Mendoza. And I look forward to every post op PT work with Gray and Lydia. They have educated me about the recovery and designed a program that has results.
    I would not hesitate to recommend UFAI to anyone in need of your professional care.. Thank you
