Review of Dr. Dierckman

-

I went to Dr. Dierckman for my hip. I was diagnosed with hip dysplasia but was unsatisfied with his bedside manner (immediately started talking drastic surgery) and his lack of listening skills. Thank goodness I got a 2nd opinion, because while I do have dip dysplasia, my pain is from my sacroiliac joint being inflammed, which he completely overlooked. I was the second patient my other doctor (Dr. Klapper, well worth waiting to see, btw) had seen that day with complaints about Dr. Dierckman!

Review of Dr. Ferkel

- in LA |

Dr. Ferkel took care of me after identifying that I had ruptured my Achilles. He and the SCOI staff were fantastic. Cannot day enough good things about his bedside manner and my experience before, during and after surgery. Got me into surgery immediately and post surgery his team was always great with casts, scheduling, etc. Never felt rushed when I was with him. It is healing incredibly well! Thanks Dr. Ferkel!

Review of Dr. Ferkel

- in Simi Valley, CA |

Dr. Ferkel is by far the most knowledgeable and congenial doctor I have ever met. He engages you in a conversation, rather than talking down to you, as some doctors tend to do. He knows his stuff. He gives you options. He genuinely cares about his patients. If you or anyone in your family is in need of "Orthopedic Surgery," your search should end here.

Review of Dr. Dierckman

- in Tujunga, CA |

It would be nice if the doctor would do a clinical once in a while, or sometimes just look at the body part, which he often neglects to do. He's very focused on the MRIs, etc., which no doubt give the most important information regarding whether to do surgery, but it feels funny to not have your knee or hip or whatever put through the motions. Even though clinicals always hurt (as they must, to be informative), I think they give information that cannot be gathered from X-rays and MRIs.

Review of Dr. Ferkel

- in Los Angeles, CA |

Dr Ferkel was super helpful and informative, gave great advice, and did excellent work on my foot. I was particularly impressed at the attention with which he followed my progress post-surgery. My only criticism is that wait times were often long at SCOI Van Nuys.

Review of Dr. Ferkel

- in North Hollywood , CA |

Dr. Ferkel he’s an excellent doctor. The staff of his office in Porter Ranch and Van Nuys are amazing. I had surgery on my ankle and believe it or not it feels like I never had any type of surgery because of the fact that if feels great. His staff his secretary are amazing with the appointments and they take well care of all the patients. So thank you to all and keep up the work. You’re all doing an amazing job.

Review of Dr. Ferkel

- in Sherman Oaks, CA |

Dr. Ferkel has been a pleasure to work with. This is my second ACL surgery (first on this knee), and the experience has been a night and day difference. He has been thorough through the entire process. Can't say enough good things about his care
