5 Star Yelp review, University Foot and Ankle Institute

I saw Dr. Gary Briskin in late July, just a week before my three weeks overseas trip and it was an amazing experience with an excellent and professional doctor who has a beautiful, well managed offices and great staff.


The doctor was very personal and suggested the least invasive procedure as the first option which worked perfectly and without pain. If you are looking for the BEST, look no further.
