Review of Dr. Ashford

- in Santa Clarita |

He has caused a life time of pain. If I knew then what I know now I would never have picked this man as my surgeon.

Review of Dr. Adamson

- in LosAngeles |

Dr. Adamson has been the orthopedic doctor of choice for my family. He has fixed three different family members knees, my ankle, my shoulder, and now it is my turn for a knee injury. I can say this with all sincerity, if I have any sort of sports injury I will always see Dr. Adamson first and his opinion (+ that of my wife) will set me on my course of recovery.

Review of Dr. Shankwiler

- in Arcadia |

I tore the supraspinatus muscle in my left shoulder. Several people had recommended Dr. Shankwiler. After he operated in 2010, I regained 100% range of motion w/ physical therapy, & have no visible scars. My arm had to be immobilized for 4+ weeks, so I was glad it was not my right hand. He recommends a more conservative course of PT than some other surgeons, beginning w aqua therapy, but the results are worth it. Dr. Shankwiler is a very caring surgeon w/ a good sense of humor. Highly recommend

Review of Dr. Dietrick

- in Fullerton, CA |

I am giving a resounding shout-out to Dr. Dietrick for doing excellent, yes,even awesome! surgeries on me.Right hip surgery was performed on me July 17, 2014..left knee surgery on me September 8, 2017. After each surgery, I went to physical therapy rehab & experienced no pain in P.T.only discomfort.My recovery of strength, gait, body mechanics, range of motion, and flexibility were 90%. Dr. Dietrick is a seasoned, high integrity doctor that I trusted and listened to&got my quality of life back.

Review of Dr. Fraipont

- |

I had a meniscus repair back in 2014 and Dr. fraipont had been treating me since then. I've had recurring pain which he could not answer why and instead on trying other alternatives he recommend transfer of care. I trusted this guy and his advise but instead he gave up and declined to work with me, leaving me in pain. I liked the guy but I was completely wrong about him.

Review of Dr. Dietrick

- in Pasadena, CA |

Every time I came to see the doctor the assistant showed up, I was so much in pain and I brought the Mri disk, he did not satisfied me by explaining the Mri, how he can I brought it the same day, I do not think he had enough time to study and see what was my problem, the only thing he said I have arthritis , and repeated over and over,over again, and send me home. Now I am in bed with pain and crying all the time. I never saw the doctor which I wanted him to explain my problem. Very disappoint

Review of Dr. Dietrick

-Fullerton, CA |

Dr. Dietrick is the rare doctor whose combination of bedside manner, explaining in detail how he sees the problem you're having and explains what he is going to do about it..You know immediately that his focus is on doing his utmost best on his patients behalf. I felt so safe in his hands and trusted him implicitly, knowing my surgery was in expert hands. After my total left knee replacement, I had not one moment of pain.Three weeks later, no more cane & ready to resume activities.Thank you, Dr

Review of Dr. Costigan

- in Monrovia, CA |

I had a lumbar surgery in Feb. 2016 & an unrelated cervical surgery in March 2017. I have had excellent results from both surgeries. I have been able to resume all my activities including daily exercising and full time work. There are days I still experience symptoms, but they are manageable.. Dr. Costigan is a gifted surgeon and if you do your part of the recovery you will have a good outcome.

Review of Dr. Diehl

-Temple City, CA |

I had a lump below my knee cap for a couple of weeks. I called this clinic on Monday and was able to get an appt the next day. Wait time was only 15 minutes. They took 3 X-Ray images and Dr Diehl came in very shortly. He explained the condition to me very thoroughly.
