Review of Dr. Orlando


Absolutely a ripoff artist- I’m still flummoxed by the low class care. His practice confirmed getting interarticular anti inflammatory injections under anesthesia was covered by Aetna, what the didn’t explain is that “their” facility is not covered. The injections did not work and 4 months later I have had success with Cedars-Sinai after bilateral hip replacements. He told me to go to a pain management clinic or maybe a spinal specialist. What a joke! No opioids and I have my life back.

Review of Dr. Orlando


Did not take time to listen. He told me that I was young and would heal and did not order any imaging even though I am in a lot of pain and cannot sleep through the night without using a recliner and pain meds. I will be getting a second opinion and will not recommend him to anyone.

Review of Dr. Cyran

- in Burbank , CA |

Doctor Cyran is an excellent doctor. She is caring and listens to the patient. She performed my shoulder repair surgery and I have never felt as good as I do now. She also did my carpal tunnel and my hand feels excellent. I would recommend her to everyone.

Dr. Orlando repaired my shoulder via arthroscopic surgery ten years ago. He gave me my shoulder back and I have had zero problems since.

Review of Dr. Merritt

-La Crescenta, CA |

Dr. Merritt is an excellent physician; However, it it is not his unparallel skills that impressed me but his humility and genuine care for his patients. His presence and approach brings comfort to his patients. His ability to connect with his patients is uncanny. When he enters the exam room you get the feeling that everything will be fine. Dr. Merritt is an exceptional human being. We need more physicians like him.

Review of Dr. Orlando

- in Glendale, CA |

Dr. Orlando did a surgical repair of my ACL and meniscus debridement in February. I can't say enough as to what a great physician Dr. Orlando is. He performed a surgery that not many surgeons even do. This surgery has cut my rehab time nearly in half compared to traditional reconstruction. He is always very open about treatment options and lays everything out (giving his opinion on best treatment) so that in the end the patient has a say in their care. Answers questions, and has a great staff.

Review of Dr. Charbonnet

- in Glendale, CA |

I'm not going back. He had ordered drug blood test during my last visit on March 5th which I did the same day but when he checked the computer on May 1st 2017, there was no record of any blood test. He told me, "What will the DEA say if you said you went but you didn't. They'll say you're lying". He flatly charged me of lying but we later found out it's the hospital's fault. I'm a wheelchair bound paraplegic and he yelled at me to get out 3x when I cornered the hospital cover up. No compassion!
