    We love Dr. Bob. He is so nice to my kids. He made a huge difference in my daughter's pain level. She never complains about her ankles anymore.

    I was not supposed to be charged for the Jan pickup of my orthotics. (The appt to get my orthotics fitted/made was in Dec 2017.) Dr. Briskin specifically assured me of that. Yet my insurance was billed and paid out. At this juncture it’s fine, but if I ever receive a bill for what the insurance company did not cover I will have serious issues and will insist that that amount be cleared from the books.

    The care Dr Baravarian and his team provided me was simply the best. His diagnosis, surgery and follow up have resulted in my feeling better and being able to be more active than I have been in 7 years. I can't thank them enough.

    I didn’t like the fact that I had to pay extra money eventhough my copay is $70. They made me pay $300.00 which is not ok when I checked with my insurance. So it’s most likely that I won’t be back. I have been to 10 specialists on month of January and no one asked me to pay extra except your office.

    Dr Bob rushed our time and it felt like he was ready to move to next patient within first minute. I know he is busy but you want to feel like a patient and not just a number.

    I trusted the doctor and believed his diagnosis and recommendations. However, I felt rushed. If I hadn’t asked specific questions and for a specific diagnosis I don’t think I would’ve understood his conclusions.

    Dr Baravarian and the team at UFAI are simply the best. I am 53 and very active. I had surgery to reduce a bone spur that impinged the flexibility of my big toe and repair the damage to the joint, which made running impossible and walking for long periods very painful. The recovery and healing were absolutely pain free; the entire process was "text book" and I am walking and feeling better than anytime in the last 4 years and fully expect to be hiking, skiing, cycling and running in the next few weeks. You can't find a more qualified team that is more focused on your needs, perfect treatment and your comfort.
