    The first 2 times I didn’t wait long and the doc was very attentive. On April 19th I waited 45 min. & I thought the doctor was less attentive.

    Disappointed there are not more options for aging toenails with fungus that works. I’m thinking of going to another podiatrist that may offer laser treatment for toenail fungus or if you offered that, though expensive, a payment schedule that would be more affordable.

    Dr Franson is amazing patient personable and empathetic. I have sent many friends to him .

    Front desk lady doesn't follow through on requests when needing paperwork for filing extra supplemental insurance I had requested more than twice and still not provided with documentation .
    The young lady sits and appears to hide and is not visible to patients . I challenge you to sit in waiting room and look at the desk and all you will see is computers and screen of stuff that makes her unvisable

    Dr Briskin is the best. When my husband broke a bone in his foot he was not a happy camper. But from the initial office visit (great that Dr Briskin has some office hours in the south bay) to the surgery and followup visits the foot is healing nicely. Appreciate that Dr Briskin has done several x-rays to make sure the bone is healing properly. Wouldn*t hesitate to refer him to family and friends

    It would be nicer if the docs took the patients in order. I waited over an hour in a room, while I could hear doc going to rooms of those who arrived long after I did.

    Hello, Dr. B, With all due respect, I think there is a flaw in the design of my custom brace. My ankle bone hurts way too much while/after getting my high arched foot into my brace/shoe due to the stiff plastic contour of the brace fitting like a second skin.and an ankle bone sticking out has to squeeze past said contour. For PRP patients couldn’t an adhesive pad be placed over the torn tendon area and the ankle bone ligament before the plaster of Paris is applied, so there’s a little breathing room for the sensitive areas not to be tortured getting into that brace & shoe? It’s not acceptable, considering I was expecting a comfortable custom brace to wear.
    I need another sponge pad along the Peroneal edge of my foot inserted. OR perhaps my PRP therapy has simply failed?
    I hate everything about Brace #2. I prefer Brace #1, which isn't correcting my gait. I’ve had enough of pain. Aidez-moi, Eileen Thomas

    Staff person when first coming into the room, didn't sound like he knew why I was there. Just to pick up and fit new orthodic shoe inserts. That's why I gave staff and 8.
    The Doctor is always great! Thanks

    I've been a long term patient and my personal informatoon has not changed in all the years I've been coming to the practice. I wish there were a way to update medical records without having to rewrite it all. Other than that small thing, it's a great practice and I'd never go anywhere else.
