Yelp Patient Reviews, in their own words...

The following five star Yelp review was posted by University Foot and Ankle patient, Ralph:

5 Star Yelp review, University Foot and Ankle Institute

Dr. Baravarian has treated my left big toe with a Cartiva implant and now a "stretched" right Achilles' tendon, both very successfully. In particular the healing injection in my Achilles is nothing short of miraculous.

 

I have the utmost faith in his knowledge and treatment. The office is well organized, courteous and efficient. I highly recommend UFAI and Dr. Baravarian.

The following five star Yelp review was posted by University Foot and Ankle patient, Mark:

Dr. Gary Briskin has been my doctor going on two years. He's a very kind and thoughtful physician. The heath of my feet has improved exponentially. It's not just how much I admire Dr Briskin, it's that he has a great staff.

 

From the front desk staff of Teresa to all the the men and women in his office. They really do make a difference. Helping you get your medication to your pharmacy or just be helpful. I would recommend Dr. Briskin without hesitation.

    Dr. B gave me excellent advisement regarding several bruised toe nails on my right foot. His assistant Alex trimmed my toe nails. I was a little scared at first, but he had very good technique and it didn't hurt at all.
