    There was a scheduling error and I had to come back the next day for my prp injection. Not the end of the world - but an inconvenience.

    Having some pain issues that Motrin 600 Tid plus Tylenol aren’t solving completely will
    Need maybe a Doz. or so Norco for breakthrough pain.
    Weighting my left leg only on crutches is making a painful bone in bone contact. Other than that Dr. Bob and staff are Aces.

    Dr. Baravarian repaired my ruptured achilles 4/18. I've had a full recovery with range of motion and strength.

    I have severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and had severe pain on the inner part of my left ankle. Dr. Baravarian injected it and I was cured from the pain, this was over a year ago. Now, my right ankle is acting up, so I pray that the doctor can work another miracle. I was not there to see the staff, but, everyone was polite. I could of been five minutes late and do not remember the receptionist treating me bad. Very happy with my visits and will travel to Santa Monica from North Glendale to see the doctor. He is that good!

    Hello. It’s was gratifying to find Dr. Baravarian and staff. As self paying clients we really were impressed with his professionalism and skill sets, along with those who assisted him, in surgery, and the staff pre and post surgery. Big thx to Cheli for price shopping our surgery and her patience coordinating our out of town requirements. The one small matter was post surgery and having nominal questions, because this was completely new to us, that we never received a reply to my email. The boot cast wasn’t fitting well and becoming very irritating and the questions of how to handle the after care. Overall, my wife and I both felt the experience was certainly above the norm and the surgery staff were exceptional. We spoken to many people, here in our Mesa resort, on who handle the surgery etc. Thnx Earl and Charlene Rhode.

    This is really a partial score since I don’t know yet how successful the surgeries will be. I think communication and process has been excellent. Appointments are well run, on time and efficient. Although sometimes the information is a bit sparse until you ask for it. I think results so far have exceeded expectations.

    I highly recommend coming here if you have any kind of ankle or foot fracture. They're very knowledgeable and very polite. Everything is under one roof, if you suspect a fracture just come here first before going to the ER or urgent care. I almost had to get an MRI pay a lot of money. Dr bob told me it wasn't neccessary. The reason I'm deducting a star is because the parking, they don't validate. The receptionist, doesn't smile and just has a face of disappointment on her. They need someone a little more welcoming in the office for such a great place like this.

    LOVE Dr. Briskin! HATE the boot and knee scooter. Hope to be done with both very soon (boot and knee scooter, NOT Dr. Briskin)

    Thank you Dr Franson, much appreciated

    I'd love it if the office could notify me when I'm again due (2 years I believe) for orthotics that my SAG insurance covers. It had actually been 3 years since my first time seeing you.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Franson for almost 10 years. I recommend him to my friends whenever they are having foot problems. My Mom, Dad & husband have all been seen by Dr. Franson. His staff is very professional, friendly and helpful.

    Dr Saeedi is a rare gem. Very kind, personable and caring. I feel comfortable with him and I am not an easily trusting person. He is exceptional. I feel very lucky to be in his care.

    my foot doctor stopped taking my insurance. i didn't think that i would find as good a doctor, but i have. in fact 2 for the price of 1! dr. baravarian and dr. saaedi rock!. i have a lot going on with my feet (callouses and hammer toes) and my ankles. dr. saaedi just shaved off my callouses and my feet feel amazing. he was aggressive yet gentle. they will grow back, and when they do, i look forward to going back. dr. baravarian put in for physical therapy and orthotics and i start my physical therapy tomorrow! this was my second time there and my wait time again was minimal. thank you university foot and ankle.
