    Wish they would have made me two orthotics. One for everyday shoe and one for a workout shoe. Now they want me to come back. With the lockdown, this is a bad idea.

    The waiting in the room seemed a bit long before I saw the doctor . He was great as usual, and the staff was friendly, but more communication about the wait would have been preferred

    I know that Dr. B is an excellent Doc, but the reason I did not give a 10 is because he has so many patients that I feel like his time with me is too short. He is always pleasant and knowledgeable, but he is always in a rush. I often have questions that arise out of the visit, but several times, when I have thought of these, he is on his way out to see another patient and I feel as if I need to cut my conversation short. I have left the office more than once without all the information I needed. That is not my ideal model for medical care.

    Between the orthotics (worn) and prescribed by Dr Baravarian, and the PT with Grey and Lydia at University Foot and Ankle, my foot feels great and the pain is gone . Thank you so much !!

    Although the quality of care and surgery itself was flawless, there was a noticeable lack of after-care communication and the expectation of recovery time was greatly minimized. I recommend that after surgery (no matter how small of a procedure) there should be a standard after-care hand out to the patient so that they would have a realistic expectation of recovery and some sort of a communication line as to who/when to call if any issues.

    Dr Baravarian is a gifted surgeon who is kind and helpful. UFAI is the only place i recommend to my family and friends. Medical Assistants are kind and caring. Reception needs to be more welcoming

    I saw Dr.Baravarian for the first time although I’d seen Dr.Franson in the Valencia location several times prior. Baravian was recommended by a DPM for evaluation of complications I experienced following foot surgery.I found him a bit dismissive and not really interested in treating me which was ok because I was scheduled to see Dr.Franson later the same day whose ratings would be 10 across the board.I’m fond of UFAI simply because of Dr.Franson. I can’t comment on Dr.Baravarian’s knowledge simply because he didn’t share much with me after deciding that “I did not need him,” but provided a reference to someone he felt was more suitable for me. I can say I respect his honesty. Yes,the office does require a credit card being left on your account but I was billed appropriately.
