Review for Dr. Kong

If I could give Dr. Walsh a 10 star review I would. My shoulder was in pieces and I was told by another Orthopedic surgeon that I would never have much range of motion. I have full function of my arm and will be forever grateful I got a second opinion and had Dr. Walsh do my surgery.

Doctor Perra is an ANGEL! I had a bulging disc between the 6th and 7th vertebrae with EXTREME pain and an old injury between the 5th and 6th vertebrae in my neck. Doctor Perra is so professional and yet so compassionate. I could not be anymore happier with my Cervical spine fusion!

Review for Dr. Shafa

Do NOT let this orthopedic doctor tell you he can perform spinal cord surgery. He can certainly BILL for a spinal cord surgery, but a spinal cord issue requires a neurosurgeon and Dr Wills should be referring such patients to a neurosurgeon.

Dr. Susan Holt is the worst dermatologist I have ever seen. Did not listen to me, barely looked at problem areas, told me several spots of skin cancer were absolutely not cancer (later removed at different clinic and found cancerous). See someone else !

Dr. Paul Frake is a very good, thorough otolargyngologist (ENT). He was professional and patient in answering my many questions. He did my thyroidectomy and I am very happy with the results and the care I received. I would highly recommend him if you find yourself needing this type of surgery.

I had two skin cancer operations performed on my face which he repaired. The results are amazing and you cannot even tell I had 13 stitches on my cheek and 7 on my forehead. He understood that I was nervous and he took the time to reduce my nervousness and explaining what was going to happen.
