- in Chula Vista , CA |

Dr Vinod Malhotra is the best doctor. Thanks for saving my life. I had a gallbladder surgery in 1990.

Review of Dr. Thaiyananthan

- in Irvine, CA |

I can't say enough nice things about Dr. Ty and his beautiful medical center. I recently had a surgery (at the surgery center-which is equally well staffed and beautiful) The office manager Erick was so kind even though I had to schedule and reschedule last minute-3 times in one day. They were incredible accommodating and I was able to leave with all the paperwork I needed to return to work. I will be back for follow-ups and actually look forward to seeing my spine support squad!

Review of Dr. Thaiyananthan

- in Northridge, CA |

I am very grateful to Dr. Ty. On July 31st of this month, he performed a surgery called Lumbar Micro-discectomy (LMD) for disc herniation. Soon after, I was completely pain free. I was able to walk out of the surgery center two hours after he surgery was performed. He is kind caring and more importantly, a very competent surgeon. Many thanks.

I had a very successful surgery. My pain in my neck was a 10 and now it is a 0. Very good surgeon and very pleasant and supportive staff.

Review of Dr. Oh

- in Costa Mesa, CA |

I felt it was important to recognize all the help and support I've gotten from the staff, particularly in reference to Dessiree Carter. I recently moved to Newport Beach after a stint of pro hockey and had serious back pain stemming from my playing days. Workers comp was a major hassle but Dessy took it upon herself to handle my case and deal with the adjuster on her own. While the pain still exists, her hard work and proactiveness have made my life significantly easier and less stressful. TY

Review of Dr. Oh

-Irvine, CA |

I CHOSE DR. OH BECAUSE OF ALL OF THE GREAT REVIEWS AND MOSTLY BECAUSE OF THE REVIEWS REGARDING EASE OF SCHEDULING APPOINTMENTS AND APPOINTMENT WAIT TIMES. FIRST OFF IT TOOK ME TWO DAYS TO GET SOMEONE ON THE PHONE. I LEFT MESSAGES AND GOT NO RESPONSE. THE FIRST APPT WENT GREAT. THEN CAME THE FOLLOW UP APPT. HOUR WAIT ON MY LUNCH BREAK AND NEVER SAW THE DOC. I'M SO DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE DR. OH SEEMED LIKE A GOOD DOC BUT I CAN'T HAVE A DOC THAT DOESN'T RESPECT THE PATIENTS TIME.

Review of Dr. Thaiyananthan

- in Anaheim, CA |

He is a life saver, suddenly I wasnt able to walk at all with excruciating pain my back, Dr.Ty (Thaiyananthan) find the root cause in the way I sat in front of him (thats experience) & he got it fixed with just an SIJ injection instead of a surgery what other doctor told. Its hard to get appointment right away for the visit & also for the procedure which could've saved me from 2 weeks of unnecessary pain, but I understand how busy good doctors must be.

Review of Dr. Thaiyananthan

- in Irvine, CA |

I researched the qualifications, residency, fellowship, and recommendations from other neurosurgeons to see Dr Thaiyananthan regarding severe lower back pain. He reconfirmed the MRI results on the monitor along with Radiologists comments and gave his diagnose in very clear and professional manner. He listens very attentively and offered all the possible course of action keeping the interest of patient foremost . I was so happy to see a neurosurgeon who treats you like a family member.

Review of Dr. Thaiyananthan

- in Irvine, CA |

Such a pleasant visit with Dr.Ty. He takes his time answering my endless list of questions and never felt rushed. He is very detailed with his answers and I am thankful for his kindness. He is a very smart man. He accurately pin pointed where my pain was and I had my treatment done immediately thanks to his staffs. I'm pain free and very happy. Thank you Monica, and Tammie for getting me scheduled so quickly. Best staffs with the best doctor.
