Review of Dr. Senter

- in San Francisco, CA |

I had a great experience working with Dr. Senter for my knee. She had a calm, reasonable approach, working methodically to understand the underlying problem and measuring the pros and cons of any possible treatment. Dr. Senter also made sure she understood the emotional and subjective aspects of the issue. All that gave me the utmost confidence throughout the process.

Review of Dr. Senter


I have been seeing Dr. Senter for many years. She is an exceptionally caring and thorough clinician. She goes above and beyond for the patient. She is never rushed and always listens. She is the best!

Review of Dr. Senter

- in Ross, CA |

Dr. Senter has been treating a knee condition over the past few months and she is always right on time, willing to spend extra time to respond to my questions and concerns, and appears to be current with all of the latest research. She is also a pleasure to interact with. Highly recommend!

Review of Dr. Vail

-San Mateo |

I cannot say enough about Dr. Vail. For years I was in pain and after my partial knee replacement, I was up and walking within a couple of hours (not unusual as they want you to do this) but my pain has never been above a 2 on a scale of 10. I don't know if this is the norm but I can tell you I have my life back. I did a lot of research on surgeons in the bay area and found out that he's one of the top there is. Not only that but frankly ALL of UCSF was excellent. Color me grateful.

Review of Dr. Vail

- in San Francisco, CA |

I am 57 years old and had a total hip replacement performed by Dr. Vail on December 22 2015. Literally, I was walking around the hospital with 1 crutch at noon that day. I was in no pain, no bruising, no swelling, and only taking tylenol the following week. I never had to use a grabber, extended shoe horn, etc. Bottom Line- Immediately my leg felt like it did when I was 19. No restrictions. Dr. Vail and his team are THE BEST. I cannot picture an easier or better experience.
