    Doctor did a fabulous job. My foot looks amazing! But most importantly, I have a very difficult time with anesthetic and I'm allergic to many medications, the doctor listened and took every step to make sure I had the best care with the anesthesiologist.

    You are one of the best doctors, and have the best staff, that I have ever seen. If I ever have a serious foot problem, I'll feel so much better knowing about you.

    Very happy with the knowledge of Dr  Bob Baravarian.  After three surgeries by two different doctors he was able to relieve the pain and swelling.  The office and staff were always pleasant and very helpful.  I would highly recommend this office !

    I am in process with Dr. Baravarian now for a chronic ankle problem, and am completely delighted to be in his care.  Both he ~ and the rest of the staff ~ are professional, courteous, helpful, and clearly are very very good at what they do.

    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!

    A few months ago, I visited Dr. Baravarian for a foot ailment that I had been suffering from for a few years. After a couple of misdiagnoses and painful cortisone and alcohol injections. He was able to tell me I had a torn plantar plate and ligament of my second toe. I had previously been diagnosed with a second toe neuroma. We decided together that the only course of treatment was surgery to repair everything. A day after surgery, I was no longer in pain and (5) five days later I was able to see a marked improvement in the look and function of my foot and toe.

    Dr. Baravarian and his staff are warm, compassionate and professional. I am always able to get an appointment and I am seen in a timely manner. I have just recently referred Dr. Baravarian to friend, who has been suffering from painful ankles from years of playing sports. My friend had surgery to repair her ankle and told me she was very pleased with the outcome.

    I believe that the quality of a professional office is determined on how many people are referred and receive great treatment.

    Thank you, again! Dr. Bob....

    I had foot surgery here in November 2014 with Dr. Baravarian and as far as surgeries go, it was a pleasant experience. The staff is incredibly helpful and nice and Dr. Baravarian was great! I was given very thorough post-op recovery instructions and when I had questions, Dr. Baravarian would return my emails promptly. My physical therapy (with Gray) was also top notch and help my recovery tremendously. I would highly recommend this institute if you have any foot or ankle problems.

    Was lucky to be referred to Dr. Babak Baravarian in Oct.2010 by my " Podiatrician " cousin. She told me good words about him and his experience in foot and ankle surgeries although she is a podiatrician herself. I recieved bunion surgery and the results were phenomenal. He is attentive, caring and gentleman. Dr. Baravarian cares about his patients and does everything he can to help them. He is the best in his field and very up to date in new procedures. "Dr. Bob is amazing surgeon and anyone would be lucky to be his patient." A+ rating!

    For all you TL;DR types out there, here is the soundbyte: Dr. Baravarian got rid of my chronic tendinitis when nothing else worked!

    But if you want more info:

    So I'd been suffering with a case of tendinitis in my foot for MONTHS, seriously, almost eight months and I was getting ready to give up hope that I'd ever be healthy and back to normal again. Tried PT with two different therapists, tried orthotics, tried resting, nothing worked. I started poking around the internet and read a couple of scholarly articles praising the benefits of platelet rich plasma for conditions like mine. Those articles lead me to University Foot and Ankle: Dr. Baravarian is a well-respected authority on this emerging field of medicine.

    I ended up getting two PRP injections with him. Not going to lie, the injections hurt like an SOB, and Dr. B. recommended that I wear an airboot for a number of weeks, and that kind of sucked. Another thing I can't lie about: the PRP injections aren't cheap, but I was charged what I felt was a very reasonable rate, especially compared to what other clinics and doctors charged.

    But the story has a happy ending: the treatments worked, and I'm back to running, hiking, gymming, all the active stuff I love.

    Dr. Baravarian is also a compassionate and personable doctor. I never had any trouble getting an appointment, I was always seen promptly and never had to loiter in the waiting room, and his staff were accommodating and helpful. Overall, a terrific experience.

    I'm an R.A patient and I was 24 yrs old when I was diagnosed so I developed feet deformities due to my illness. the joint damage was so severe that I could no longer wear normal  shoes all I was able to wear was a lousy pair of stretchy sandals and the pain was unbearable,I hated to walk.I found Dr.Baravarian in the internet and made an appointment a few weeks later.

    After Dr.Baravarian examined  my feet he explained to me that because I  waited so long to have this problem fixed,he had to perform bone fusion and remove some severally damage joints.

     I had enough with this problem so I decided to go for it .
    He   performed surgery on both my feet, one at a time.I do have to say the healing process was a little lengthily but it's one of the best decisions I have ever made.I'm just thrilled with the great results .

    Thanks to Dr.Baravarian (one of the best doctors I have encountered,not  to mention a good and compassionate human being ) and his great staff I can walk pain free and  finally wear cute shoes again.

    Thanks a million!

    I visited Dr. Baravarian based on my primary doctors recommendation.   My primary said he is the best in the business for my situation.  I ruptured my Achilles Tendon on October 6th and had surgery by Dr. "Bob" on October 11th.  So far so good, had the staples out on Oct 28.  So looking to having my cast off in mid November and moving to what I call the Robocop boot.   The staff has been great and appointments are easy and they pretty much run on time.  Dr. Bob and his team have a good bed side manner.  They tell me the full recovery is 4-6 months so I will have more to say over time.   Based on my experience so far, I would recommend Dr.  Bob.  My only suggestion would be that the office/doctors should give you some literature explaining the protocol for your recovery.  (e.g. how long in a cast, when you can start slow walking, exercising, physical therapy, etc.).  I'm a very detailed person so I like to understand every step in the process.
