WHAT UFAI BUNION PATIENTS HAVE TO SAY…
Thank you for all your care and support. After 5 years of being in pain, you finally took care of things permanently for me. I can't tell you what a joy it is to be able to walk, or even simply pick up my kid and not be in pain. I'm forever grateful that you were my doctor...
I saw Dr. Franson 2 years ago for bunion removal, and just this year had him replace my ankle and remove my other bunion. I can't tell you how great this doctor is. Very compassionate, very caring, and the staff is just as great. I would recommend him for any ankle or foot problem. He is the BEST!!!
I suffered from bunions as long as I can remember. I researched the best podiatrist and Dr. Bob came up. He operated on my left foot 3 months ago and my right foot 2 months ago. I didn't have pain, I could walk from day one and next week was back in heels. I read dozens of blogs about bunion surgeries horror stories. I am grateful that to have picked him as my doctor.
I put off foot surgery for years, but after my consultation, I'd found the right place! My surgery was an amazing success, and I was treated with great care. I was provided with thorough follow-up care, leading to a complete and painless recovery. I couldn't be happier!
Very happy with the knowledge of Dr Bob Baravarian. After three surgeries by two different doctors he was able to relieve the pain and swelling. The office and staff were always pleasant and very helpful. I would highly recommend this office!
The staff was fantastic and it they really took care of me. Some of the best service from medical professionals that I have ever seen!
This was my first operation and everything was managed really well. Dr. Baravarian is someone I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Great staff who put up with my questions and bad jokes. Hope I will not have to return, but if I do have foot problems again, I will go back to these folks.
I found Dr. Bob in 2004 when my bunions were bothering me. I had been diagnosed with knee problems 3 years earlier, but did not know the problems were related ... Dr. Bob rebuilt both of my feet with screws for joint fusion and ankle implants for stabilization. Nine years later I have not had a single issue. No more knee or foot pain. I cannot thank him enough!
I had foot surgery here in November 2014 with Dr. Baravarian and as far as surgeries go, it was a pleasant experience. The staff is incredibly helpful and nice and Dr. Baravarian was great! I was given very thorough post-op recovery instructions and when I had questions, Dr. Baravarian would return my emails promptly...
When I compare the surgery result and treatment at the Foot and Ankle Institute with the treatment at other offices, I am amazed. I was so happy with my surgery result and that I had Dr. Baravarian fix the foot that was done by another doctor. This place is awesome.
I've had two Lapidus Bunionectomy surgeries (one for each foot) by Dr Baravarian and I'm thrilled with the results. My bunions were extreme and required extreme expert measures to correct them. Dr. Baravarian is one of the best, if not THE best, foot doctors in L.A. and I feel so grateful to have found him.
I just wanted to tell you how grateful I am for everything you have done for me. You have truly blessed me in more ways than one.
Two years ago I went to Dr. Bob looking for expert advice on what to do about my feet! It was the best thing I could have ever done. Now, two years later, after Lapidus Bunionectomies on both feet, I am feeling extremely grateful that I found the right man for the job.
I have had an outstanding experiences every time I come to the office.
Listened and understood my concerns, did an appropriate evaluation, and recommended possible treatment choices according to my preferences. Very professional and personable!
Doctor did a fabulous job. My foot looks amazing! But most importantly, I have a very difficult time with anesthetic and I'm allergic to many medications, the doctor listened and took every step to make sure I had the best care with the anesthesiologist.
