Review of Dr. Dobyns

-Claremont , CA |

Dr Dobyn’s is amazing. He was wonderful with my daughter. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to pediatric orthopedics. He made my daughter feel comfortable and was able to explain everything to her so that she could understand “that’s not easy to do with a 12 year old. He took an interest in her sport and spent a great deal of time talking to her about it. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a wonderful orthopedic surgeon!!

Review of Dr. Weinert Jr


We had a terrible visit with Dr. Weinert! He spent a total of 1 minute in the office and didnt even evaluate our daughter before he tried to send her off for an X-ray of her shoulder. Then it turns out he misdiagnosed her because we went to another doctor who took an X-ray of her arm and it ended up being a forearm hairline fracture. They are either too busy, or Dr. Weinert didnt care for his patient, or both!

Review of Dr. Aminian

- in CA |

Dr Aminian is great and knowledgeable and very friendly and explains everything very clearly. I find their staff at Mission Viejo especially her assistant lisa very awful their clear disregard for patient cause my daughter to have surgery instead of having a PT done. There is some failing on our part that we did not follow up enough but you don't have to get referral three times before they do it right.

Review of Dr. McMichael

- in CA |

If I could give10 stars I do it for Dr McMichael. She is simply amazing professional. I want to say that we are very lucky that my son is “on Dr McMichael’s hands”. They are not enough words to thank you again Dr McMichael.

Review of Dr. Dobyns


I would give this man 0 stars if I could! With the results on a computer screen right in front of him, he asked if I had the test he ordered. He contradicted himself at least 3 times in 15 minutes, & in a series of at lest 6 x-rays, he looked at only 1. If you are overweight, he will not be able to see past it. He is ignorant, unwilling to learn, uncaring, egotistic, & downright rude! He has absolutely no bedside manner or compassion. Please stay away from this quack!

Review of Dr. Dobyns

- in Mission Viejo |

I'v been a patient of Dr Dobyns for two total anterior hip replacements. The operationes where three years apart. Dr Dobyns is one of the few doctors that do an anterior approach when possible. This way is much less damaging to the muscles as they are not cut, the healing time is less then half the time. Dr. Dobyns & I have a great relationship. He is alway straight up with me & his sense of humor I truly appreciate. He is to the point, no mucking about. Both my hip replacements went perfectly!

Review of Dr. Minor

- in Trabuco Canyon, CA |

If we could give a higher grade to Dr. Minor we would. He is honestly one of the best doctors. My boys are runners and have had various issues. Recently, my son, who is a varsity runner, was getting ready for the OC Championships. On the Tuesday before the race, he got a very bad ache in his side to the point that he could hardly walk that day and the next day. Dr. Minor was totally booked but he went above and beyond to help my son knowing the big race was coming up even on his day off.

Review of Dr. Dobyns

-Mission Viejo, CA |

Agree with most of the reviews I have seen. This doctor does not like his job. Spends less than 10 minutes with you and in my first visit he was out the door before I was! He quickly diagnosed me without real evidence and sent me packing to physical therapy. I am still to this day in extreme pain and now have to go to the ER because of a lazy non-caring doctor.
