    I went here to see Dr. Baravarian for my heel pain, which nobody was able to successfully deal with. He got me back on my feet, literally and my heel pain is gone. Highly recommend them both here and in Santa Monica, where I see him if I am not coming from work. Super easy to work with. I am a fan.

    What I appreciate about the consultation I had with
    Dr. Baravarian was his honesty and genuine concern for his patients. I have been to numerous podiatrist in the neighborhood and he will definitely not try to sell you on unnecessary surgery as others do. This doctor is the real deal.

    Dr. Baravarian is a great doctor. After just one visit he knew what the problem was with my heel. He recommended a cortisone shot for the inflamed bursa in my heel an two days later I was pain free. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the area with feet problems. He has been in the Good Day America morning show and is highly experienced. With the vast number of patients he has seen and treated he will diagnose you and recommend a treatment immediately to get you pain free. and moving again.

    Dr. Baravarian is the best. He took great care of me and after surgery I could not be happier with the outcome. They accepted my insurance and the entire office and staff could not be kinder or more professional. Highly recommend this office, Dr. Baravarian and the group.

    Where do I start. Dr. Bob Baravarian is amazing at what he does. He brings options, education, and is very thorough with his care. I came to him due to a previous surgery gone bad. He came highly recommended by another well known pain Doctor. He has handled my foot with care and taken all the necessary steps to put me on the path to recovery. He will review the results, current state of injury and proceed with what he believes is reasonable and responsible healthcare. Aside from his vast knowledge and experience in the field, he is kind and makes you feel at ease. I felt hopeless for sometime as my injury came at a young age, but am confident he will give everything he can to make me whole again. He is also reachable by email. Something that I didn't expect which was pretty comforting when I had a question, I could just ask.

    I suffered from foot pain for over 10 years and had tried everything. I went to Dr. Baravarian and followed his advice. He gave me treatment and exercises to begin and now within a few months I was cured. I have no trouble walking long distances and suffer no side effects that were with me for so long. I still do the exercises and will for life, as it has given me a much better quality of life. I recommend him and his staff for any problems you might have with your feet.

    Dr Baravarian was a referral from a friend who also had bunion surgery with him. He is knowledgeable, respectful and very professional. He tells it like it is and his staff is great. I had bunion surgery almost 8 weeks ago and I am healing great. I would highly recommend him to anyone that asks. Thank you for your great work and staff!!!

    Hi highly recommend Dr Baravarian as someone of experience, expertise, and patience.Yesterday, my daughter who is an aspiring tennis pro went to Dr Baravarian hobbling with tremendous pain and had to play a high level tennis tournament in 5 hours.
    We were expecting the worst. But after taking xray to make sure she wasn't in danger, his vast knowledge with sports athletes fixed the situation and she is on her way. He fitted her with orthotics and gave tremendous advice for her future work outs and playing tournaments.
    I can't thank him enough and the kind supporting staff that he has.

    I can't say enough about how professional and capable and kind the staff is. I was in pain from damage to my foot from a previous bone break that was not properly taken care of by another Doctor. Dr. B ran the appropriate tests and then performed surgery, all in a timely manner. I am no longer in constant pain and have not felt any pain since the surgery. Highly recommend them!!

    I see Dr. Bob in Sherman Oaks. If it wasn't for him I really wouldn't be able to walk. I have bad arthritis in my ankles and feet. I have seen several doctors regarding my problems but NO ONE was able to help me or understand how to help me or have the knowledge of how to help me. Dr. Bob is intelligent, calm, and funny. He makes sure you understand what he's going to do before surgery and what's going to happen after surgery. If he see's you feel anxious or nervous he takes the time to calm you down. Bottom Line after he listens to you regarding your ailment and after thoroughly examining you he knows exactly what you need and what to do. If you gives you some cork lifts or a boot or something else it is for your health and he always knows exactly what he's doing. He's honest and very intelligent. He's an amazing surgeon my ankles are attached and I am able to walk. He's had to do numerous surgeries on my feet because of all my problems. I trust him and highly recommend him. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

    I received great service from the staff, and the surgery was very convenient and professional . Dr Bob (Baravian) did an amazing job repairing my ankle. I am active, pain-free, and able to enjoy my shoe collection again ... Dr Bob has me in heels again, comfortably!

    Remarkable staff, courteous, efficient and kind.  Dr. Bob has been wonderful in taking care of me for what up until now has been an ongoing chronic problem.  But we are beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel!
