    All interactions with staff, physician and assistants were very pleasant. I think that laying out the whole plan for recovery (time schedule, footwear required, therapy) up front would be good. It was all briefly mentioned ahead of time but not with details. So I was surprised that a shoe with a specific type of rigid sole was recommended during the transition from the boot. It would be good to know that before surgery. The shoe ended up being an excellent idea, but prior knowledge would be better.

    This week is my 3 month post-op week. All footwear with arch support and cushioning seem to work ok. Other footwear like a flat loafer, not so much. The nerve problem in my foot is gone, but the foot is still recovering. Walking more than 3 miles or so causes my whole foot to be fatigued and achy, and that fatigue travels up my leg. I will continue to work at it.

    Overall I was satisfied however I waited for someone to call me when my insurance approved me to get an MRI. I was told it might be 2 weeks. I ended up calling after 3 weeks of waiting only to find out the approval “ had just come in”. But my doctor was out on vacation and that is why no one called me. I cannot imagine the doctor calls the patient to tell them of the approval. I would have expected a much more proactive approach. I woulda e rather heard of my approval even though the the doctors vacation would postpone the actual appointment since same day reading of results would be needed. So satisfied yet frustrated is the way I would describe my initial feelings.

    Dr. Bob and his fellow gained my wife’s confidence and made her a believer, she was a bit of an emotional reck after her first Dr let her believe she could loose her foot.
    We both like your style and professionalism, and are looking forward to a good recovery for Janice

    I’m still experiencing a lot of pain.. I’m now 4 weeks post procedure. I’ve seen Dr Kamrava for electrical testing for nerve damage. Have not heard or received any information about that. So all in all I’m kinda pissed off really. I feel my pain is worse now than before my surgery. I certainly am not able to put my weight on it.. I was hop for better results by now. I’m not even sure at this point if it’s really plantar fasciitis.. I don’t know what to think. All I know is that I’m in pain every day

    My experience/care at UFAI, Sherman Oaks, is always given in a friendly, professional and timely manner, however this time my nails and calluses were not cut down like they usually are and consequently my feet did not feel as good when I left the office. And THAT'S the feeling that I always look forward to after my UFAI office visits.
