    Everyone at UFAI is extremely professional and thorough. Over the last several years, I’ve been to several different doctors for my condition over, and this, by far, is the best team, treatment and care I’ve received thus far. I feel extremely secure with my doctors here, and am currently recovering beautifully from my surgery!

    Usually excellent. Only one time I came for an early 7:00a. m. Appointment and arrived a few minutes early. The door was locked. I think the staff came at seven or a few minutes later. I was just so shocked that I could make it a few minutes early (after driving almost thirty minutes) and the staff wasn’t a few minutes early to unlock the door. Only happened once.

    I really like Dr Bob and his nurse/assistant. I scheduled surgery with him. Office parking in Sherman oaks is not the friendly. One woman in the waiting room was unhinged and yelling at people. I found that very upsetting.

    I was on state disability and Unum insurance. Several requests were made by Unum and myself to get the paper work to state disability dept and Unum in order to receive my benefits. You did respond to it and I got my benefits once. The request had to be requested again,, your office has yet to fulfill this request. When your office fails to do their part, I don't get paid. I am owed 2 months of back pay. PLEASE, I am respectfully requesting that you send state disability dept and Unum the paperwork needed. Each and every visit I had in your office, my co-pay was the first thing that was requested before I was seen, and each and every visit, I PAID IT! My Insurance paid you!
    Thats why I had not responded to this survey. Hoping you'd come thru. As of now, I lack my benefits. If this is a concern that you'll sincerely take care of, please be so kind as to call me and inform me that you took care of this. (818)470-9625. This will help take the stress off of me.
    If no call can be made asap, I will make an appointment to meet the billing dept or the office manager. I do need an appointment with Dr. Barabarian, perhaps he can help in this situation. Thanks for your time.

    Dr. Baravarian seemed nice and was knowledgeable but I only spent 10 minutes with him so it's a little soon to ask me for a rating.
    They were supposed to make insoles for me but I haven't heard back from them as of yet. They said 2 weeks Maybe they forgot? I don't know.
    As far as office staff. Honestly I wasn't happy!
    My debit card got lost in that office and by the time I limped back to my truck (around the block because no parking) and realized I didn't have the card, the lady was gone. They found it the next day after we shut the card off. Huge inconvenience and I was pissed off! However the lady I talked to on the phone at a separate office was very nice and tried to help me re: the debit card. She was apologetic but she wasn't the lady in the office that took my info.
    Lesson learned! I'll never walk away from my card/license/ins card again at any Dr office window.
    Hopefully you keep this confidential so I'll be comfortable to come back without backlash.
    Thanks!

    I thought the front staff was incredible- kind and quick. I appreciated how safe the office was in consideration to covid. Everyone communicated clearly. And the doctor was great. He explained everything thoroughly and gave me reasonable options from the less aggressive to the very aggressive.
    Overall I was happy with my entire experience.

    The doctor made an accurate diagnosis of my foot and told me that surgery should be done after my decision is made.
