Emily is simply the best at injections. She has the art and skills that cannot be taught but are natural. I will never go to another medical spa again! She is hands down the best in Reno! She’s the best anywhere!

She told me I had cancer while I was shopping in a grocery store, which turned out to be totally wrong. I do not recommend her for anyone

Review for Dr. Celia Sutton-Pado, MD

Dr. Jowers was great and made our ER experience very positive. He handled a difficult situation very well and communicated everything to my wife and I clearly and with compassion. I would recommend him to friends or family if they needed to be seen in Truckee.

Jul 02 2019

Review for Dr. Casey Jowers, MD

Dr. Jowers was thorough in his evaluation and patient with our 18 month old daughter. He explained everything to us thoroughly and clearly. Hopefully we will not need to be going back to the Truckee ER any time soon but if we needed to we would love to see Dr. Jowers again.

Review for Dr. Casey Jowers, MD

Excellent Surgeon. I am 5 weeks out from bi-lateral hip replacement surgery and at the top of the "healing curve'. Dr. Dodd and his staff have done an incredible job.

Review for Dr. Jeffrey Dodd, MD

Every time i have been into see Dr. Paul, he has been arrogant, unhelpful, and condescending. Even to my child. My child even commented on how rude he was. We will not be back to see him. If a doctor puts down another doctor, i immediately lose respect.

Dr Tirdel is not only knowledgeable, which you expect a specialist to be: He also listen's carefully to the patient and is more than willing to answer questions and never makes you feel rushed.

Nevada City - Sep 23 2018

Review for Dr. Terrence Orr, MD

If you want someone who is authentic and can connect with the issues you face, choose Derrick. I don’t know why anyone would give him a bad rating unless they’re immature or can’t handle being told the truth about something.

in Truckee, CA - Jul 18 2018

Review for Dr. Stephen Forner, MD

Derrick Johnson was very friendly but did not even remember the reasons I was coming week after week. He would shut down my concerns as well as not follow through on scheduled appointments. Derrick is a nice person but I would not recommend him as a therapist.

Review for Derrick Johnson, MDIV

I have been seeing Dr Ringnes for almost 2 years. He has a ‘down to earth’ style and he is very user friendly in describing things. He has some newer approach’s to orthopedic issues (and hence why I picked him out of this practice). I’m very pleased that he’s my doctor...
