    Doc Briskin was a great doctor and a straight shooter in the advice he gave to me. My toe/bone spur problem is greatly improved, and we shall see how far the healing process goes!

    Dr. Briskin is the best! My various foot concerns lasted 1.5 years so I had the opportunity to see a lot of Dr. Briskin. He's an excellent surgeon and a lovely person. I'd recommend him to any friend or family member with a foot concern.

    Wonderful doctor! Dr. Briskin is a genius! I love his physical therapy doctors and workers as well. Doesn't get better than this as far as treatment and healing is concerned.

    I could not be more pleased with the care I received from Dr. Briskin and his staff.  I have complete confidence in Dr. Briskin and really appreciated his easy going manner.  I have ptsd and doing something as simple as going to the podiatrist can be difficult.   Here, I got friendly smiles and actually saw the doctor right on time.  And most importantly,  I received great care from Dr. Briskin!

    My toes are so happy, they're crying, "Tee-hee-hee all the way home", thanks to Dr. Gary Briskin.  He's perfect!  He solved a problem I've had for a long, long time.  For a few years, I've had to wear spongy "toe guards" and puffy tapes and so on, in between these 2 specific toes, because they were 'fighting for the same space" = rubbing against each other, creating very painful, red skin, blisters, callouses, etc.  I mean VERY painful--I couldn't make a single step at home or away -- with any shoes -- even barefoot -- without cringing.  The skin was so sensitive, I even had to wear the toe guard material in bed!  

    Voila -- a few minutes with Dr. Briskin's friendly and patient examination, followed by a gentle and artful callous trimming -- and one simple bandage -- and I'm walking pain free. Day, night, every moment, wherever I go.  No toe guards, spongy separators, etc. Whatever I'll need in the future, He'll be my go-to expert. Thanks, Dr. Briskin.     -- "jubidee"

    I met with Dr. Bob Baravarian with a broken ankle from a basketball injury. Moments after I injured the ankle and it started swelling I called Dr. Baravarian's office for an immediate appointment. My ankle had swollen to about the size of a tennis ball.

    Upon arriving to the office I was seated in a fairly standard waiting room. The receptionist was very polite, took down my information and had me fill out some forms. The appointment was set for 3:00pm, but I was expecting this office to function like every other doctors office I have ever been to, late. But NO! I was taken into a room at 2:55 and the doctor was in the room by 3:00! This was one of the biggest advantages I found in this office, punctuality.

    Dr. Baravarian was a delight to work with. He told me that I may need to have an MRI to see the extent of the damage. The office has an MRI machine on site which makes it very convenient as patients are usually forced to go to another hospital for an MRI.

    They gave me some crutches and a boot and I scheduled another meeting for a week after. When I came back I was a few minutes early and was seated immediately. Again their punctuality was such a huge plus.

    To fair on the safe side I tend to always get a second opinion. At Dr. Baravarian's office there are a team of doctors working together to come up with the best diagnosis for any patient. Upon my second visit I had TWO other doctors (Dr. Briskin and Dr. Little) advise me on how to proceed with surgery.

    I would recommend this office to anyone and everyone. One of, if not the best doctors office experience I have ever had.

    As I waited in the sitting room for my 1:30 appointment, I was thinking about  how many stars to dock since it was now 3:00!!!  As it turns out, though, the problem was with my stupid health insurance, Anthem Blue Cross, and not with UFAI, as I saw about 3 rounds of other patients get called in quickly and then come out looking fairly pleased with their appointments.  

    Once I was finally able to get in to an examination room, I was seen fairly quickly.  First a guy came by and asked me some general questions.  He took me to another guy who quickly took some xrays of my foot and took me back to the exam room.  Then someone that works with my doctor came in and asked me some questions and messed with my foot a bit, and finally, I got to see Dr. Briskin.

    While all of the other folks that I saw were great, Dr. Briskin was wonderful.  He seemed genuine I didn't feel like he was rushing in to make an appearance before having someone else take over for the rest of the appointment.  I also had some concerns about what treatment he was going to suggest since I knew he is also a surgeon, but he defintiely vered towards non-invasive methods first, which I can truly appreciate.  I also didn't feel like he was just trying to get me some orthotics which is the experience i've had at other podiatrists offices.

    All in all, I would say that the experience is positive, and I'm looking forward to my follow up appointment once all my health insurance drama has been worked out!
