    Doctor & staff were very nice, but insurance request for orthotics didn't happen. I had to follow up myself. New person was apologetic. We'll see how quickly we can move forward now.

    All I can say about this place is, you will see miracles with your own eyes. I went to their office in Sherman Oaks and I had a pleasure to meet Dr Gina, who is absolutely an angel. She has heart for her patients and cares about them. Super positive attitude which makes your pain go away in the first visit. Very knowledgeable and most importantly she understands you. Thank you so much for everything you have done Dr. Highly recommended

    It was fine. I just really don’t like doing surveys!! It’s a new pervasive annoyance. It’s as if no one has the confidence to just do good work and enjoy that satisfaction.

    I will say that I found it to be a real time suck that in order for me to do the prescribed PT for my injury I was unable to use the Drs PT facility. Reason is that it would have been a big out of pocket extra cost for me. That was a really bad thing.
    Ultimately I did go to UCLA campus PT and loved my therapist.

    I was not very impressed with the dr. that I saw. She could have been more definite about the solutions to my problem rather than a blanket surgery is not the answer. Well, what is the answer?

    The doctor Gina was informative profession personable and caring
    She Diagnosed what the symptoms appeared to be and then prescribed Foot and leg compression stockings the idiots at the insurance company summarily denied
    Thst they would presume to second guess a doctors recommendation
    I filed a formal complaint the still continue to ignore and my heath has suffered for it
    That my primary physician also wrote the same prescription
    But he was denied too
    Why have insurance at all
    I also need shoes that would now accommodate the swelling which continues
    es I am on meds Now for months that are helping little
    And because I believe this is a covid related immune system compromise that there is no knowledge of nor a proven reliable test for as this selfish corrupt moron as an Impeached but still in power president whom is advancing the virus
    I now call the trump virus which now will compromise my future health and even kill me
    As it has killed hundreds of thousands of others
    I am left without any means of effectively advancing my health back to what it was before this virus compromised it this year
    Still there are good doctors.. Gina whom do all they can to help

    Such a great practice. I have had nothing but amazing visits with Doctor Bob and the staff. Dr. Bob has such a great personality, so positive and helps you understand all that is going on. His confidence and knowledge puts you at ease. Gina is awesome and has been very attentive to my needs both pre surgery & after sugery. Gina has a great future in the field because personality makes all the difference with patients. Cheli is amazing and on top of every piece of paperwork and email, she is 1 in a million... The staff is on top of it, I think the longest wait I've had is 10 min. A fantastic overall experience at University Foot & Ankle Institue of Santa Monica.
