Review for Dr. Klineberg

25 Years ago Dr. Rab performed corrective surgery on my daughter who was born with bilateral hip dysplasia. Needless to say this was quite traumatic for young parents, but Dr. Rab was amazing and my daughter, Kaitlyn is now very physically active in law enforcement. Forever thankful,

Dr. Klineberg is awesome! He took excellent care of our daughter and made the whole family feel at ease with the procedure (spinal fusion with autograft to correct severe scoliosis) and recovery. The whole team at Shriners Sacramento is excellent! Would definitely highly recommend Dr. Klineberg!

Review for Dr. Klineberg

Just got the stitches out of my thumb this week, and thumb is doing great. Surgery was done under local anesthetic, and I was able to drive myself home which I very much appreciate. Dr. Zyfonte is capable and caring in addition to being pleasant to work with. I highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Zafonte

Dr. Zafonte treated my 2 year old son after he broke his leg. He and his entire staff were so patient with us and explained everything. Definitely gave us peace of mind with his professionalism and knowledge. We were also able to get in right away to see him.

Review for Dr. Giordani

Excellent Doctor, communicator and Orthopedist. Hip replacement went exactly as described and planned. No complications or problems.

Jul 13 2019

Review for Dr. Giordani

The follow-up after surgery is poor. Office takes a very long time to get back to you if you email or call with a question. After surgery is done, there seems to be a general lack of caring about the patient.

Review for Dr. Giza

Within a span of four months he was the only surgeon to do the third right hip replacement.

Review for Dr. Pereira

I was very happy with It’s Dr. Zafonte. He did excellent surgery on my humerus and I have full ROM again. He always took his time in answering my concerns and never just rushed in and out. I would definitely recommend him to anyone with orthopedic problems.

Only 1 star because I couldn't give zero. Dr. Meehan was incredibly rude, spent very little time and did not bother to discuss options such as Physical Therapy etc. Have never had such a horrible experience with a doctor in my whole life! Avoid if at all possible.

Dr Rab is an amazing person! My now 16 year old son had moderate/severe clubfoot when born. Bringing our 4 day old infant to him for help was the most comforting and reassuring start of a long-haul corrective process. Our son Nolan still wants to go fishing with him!

Great outcome from very difficult surgery. Prior to surgery Dr. G explained all the details. Very pleased with results.

Review for Dr. Giordani

Dr.Meehan is one of the worst physicians I have ever met. Condescending, rude and thinks so highly of himself that he seems to have forgotten that the limbs he does surgery on are actually attached to humans. Go anywhere else but here. He is not worth the time or the negativity.

Dr Allan Saved my life with bypass surgery. The cardiologist said I wouldn't live long enough to make the operating Theatre after the operation I was given a discharge with no restrictions and I'm still alive 25 years later

The doctor is great but his employee named Dean is SO unprofessional. He not only hung up on me (only later to apologize), but as I was about to ask a question while he was pausing during conversation he tells me "let me finish". What ever happened to customer service?
