Review of Dr. Petrigliano

- |

Absolutely excellent in every way. I had waited for years. I heard the process and recovery would be very painful, long and awful. The actual results were terrific. The hospital and surgery went very well. The over-night at Keck was simple and totally withut pressure. The nurses were excellent, Dr. Petrigliano and Dr. Paco superb. Subsequently, PT at home for 4 weeks. Dr. Petrigliano let me out of the sling yesterday. I'm doing almost everything, being careful with certain motions. Just reaching for a parking ticket going into a lot used to be so painful. Today nothing to it. The whole experience has been excellent. Dr.P is very easy to talk to and he spends time to make me feel good and educated. I'm thrilled that I did it. The pain level is nearly 0. Thank you Dr. P and the team at Keck.

Review of Dr. Bukata

-

She was hell bent on replacing my knee in my late 40s when I have no pain in my knee joint. The pain I have is from an osteophyte in the back of my knee that is digging into my calf. She is very set in her ways and believes her solution is the only solution to a problem. I would not recommend her if I was missing a leg. Her knowledge and accomplishments are wasted because if her poor attitude and inability to put patient care before all else. Use her at your own risk.

Review of Dr. Difiori

-

He shows up an hour late to the appointment and spends literally two minutes with me, barely examining my wrist properly and then requests useless tests that I didn't need. This happened twice, I understand doctors being late but at least examine me properly and take the time to answer my questions. What a waste of my time (had to go during work), money (billing my insurance and copay) and my sanity.

Review of Dr. Williams

-

Dr. Williams was the perfect surgeon for my severe ankle fracture. She was gentle and kind, willing to answer every question. I never felt rushed at all. My surgery appears to be a complete success (still recovering, though getting closer to normal). She has my highest recommendation and I feel so lucky to have been under her care.

Review of Dr. Williams

-

Dr Joan Williams is incredibly knowledgeable and has been extremely diligent in resolving my ankle break issues. I really appreciated her thorough follow-up in assessing the various surgeries that were required to mitigate my broken fibula. Her assistant, Fabiola Flores, was fantastic to work with as well and provided great teamwork. Many thanks to Dr. Williams for her expertise and persistence in helping me through my journey to recovery!

Review of Dr. Williams

I am 26, Dislocated my ankle, and fractured my fibula. Dr. Williams was extremely helpful and explained everything she was doing. After two surgeries I am walking again with not even a limp. She's amazing.

Review of Dr. Williams

-

Told me that an Ankle Arthroscopy for my ankle issue wouldn’t help me. Well, here I am 4 years later after having it done at Cedars-Sinai and I’m close to 100%
