due to extensive problems secondary to a surgery preformed years ago by another surgeon, resulting in malformed toe joints, I was finally unable to wear shoes comfortably...Dr Avakian was recommended to me by a coworker.Having worked in the Medical field all my life, I was pleasantly impressed with his knowledge base,professionalism and caring attitude. He preformed corrective Surg (Outpatient) and I could not be more pleased with the results. He called that pm and next day for follow -up

I made my appointment with Dr. Avakian after being referred by a family member. I've had nagging pain in my ankles due to several sports injuries over the years. He was able to give me a pretty thorough examination and recommendations after spending time listening to my history and working on my ankles. I felt completely comfortable with him and especially with his assessment of how best to deal with my pain. I would recommend Dr. Avakian to anyone who has issues with their feet or ankles.

What a great man! I have seen Dr Avakian a couple of times and was extremely pleased with my visits. He even called me back a few days later to find out how I was doing.
