    I saw Dr. Jason Morris in the Santa Monica office. I was afraid I was losing my BIG "pretty" toenail and it was hurting like hell. Terrors of terrors! Right in the middle of summer sandal season. Dr. Morris confirmed my fears and gave me a couple of options. In the end, he helped me make the tough choice: the nail had to come off -- it was destined to die and be reborn. His calm, caring demeanor helped me through the "exorcism" of the dead nail that day, and his follow-up was thorough and caring.

    Dr. Baravarian is great.  He pays attention to what you say and the medical techs are impeccable and nice.  All around a well-run office.  He solved a tricky, painful and somewhat mysterious ankle problem for me three years ago and it hasn't come back but I still go back to him for orthotics.

    Dr. Braxton Little, my podiatrist, was very professional, diagnosed me with plantar's faciitis
    and then made a set of orthotics for me.  After two bouts of the plantar's fasciitis previously, since i got the orthotics I've never had another flare up with it.

    Gray O'Brien, the owner of the physical therapy section and head physical therapist heads an extremely competent team of physical therapists.  They are all efficient and pay close attention to your progress.  They were able to answer the questions i had for both sets of sessions I had, one for therapy for plantar's fasciitis and the other for a sprained ankle.  I have a lot of confidence in the therapists and would definitely go back if needed, as I did before.

    Here's the challenge......find a better doctor's office with the professionalism and caring service that even comes close to Dr. Briskin's team and the entire staff off UNIVERSITY FOOT & ANKLE INSTITUTE. I assure you....next to impossible. I cannot say enough about how well I was treated, diagnosed, and taken care of. THANK-YOU, DR. BRISKIN.

    I really appreciate the office flexibility, as I never know when my foot issue will flare up and I will need to be seen. It is unpredictable, so I am grateful that the staff works to get me in to see Dr Briskin!

    I've had two Lapidus Bunionectomy surgeries (one for each foot) by Dr Baravarian and I'm thrilled with the results. My bunions were extreme and required extreme expert measures to correct them. Dr. Baravarian is one of the best, if not THE best, foot doctors in L.A. and I feel so grateful to have found him.

    I saw Dr. Baravarian after being misdiagnosed by another doctor. (I am runner, but foot pain was making even short runs very difficult). He was awesome, really attentive and caring. He quickly diagnosed a bone spur in my foot and recommended orthotics. Have to say I was skeptical that the thin inserts could make much of a difference, but I was so wrong! I immediately noticed a difference and am back to running long distance with zero pain. I really can't thank him enough!

    So far everything is going well. I really like Dr. Baravarian and his staff, they did a wonderful job. They are very compassionate and professional at the same time. My family and I are very happy and thankful we found you guys, and we are definitely recommending your services to everybody. Thank you again for making me feel at peace at the time of my surgery. I'm so happy with Dr. Baravarian that I will give him 5 stars in any reviews that I can.
