Dr. Doornik's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Doornik "The parents of Albert Doornik, MD immigrated to the U.S. from Holland in 1956 and he was born in Chicago two years later. His father believed that the key to success in the new country was education and Dr. Doornik became the first in his family to graduate from college. He went on to earn his medical degree from Loyola University of Chicago in 1986. He completed his general surgery internship and orthopedic surgery residency at the University of California, Irvine Medical Center. Today, he combines compassion and state-of-the-art technologies, specializing in diagnosing and treating knee and shoulder disorders. His ultimate goal, and reward, is helping patients get back to normal activities as quickly and painlessly as possible. Dr. Doornik is board certified in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery. He's retained his fluency in Dutch, a second language spoken in his childhood home. He and his college sweetheart have been married for more than 30 years and have two grown daughters. Dr. Doornik and his family enjoy traveling and experiencing different cultures. Most of his leisure activities revolve around his church where he has taught 6th Grade Sunday School, served as a junior high camp counselor, hosted camp-outs and pool parties on their property, and co-chaired a major building campaign."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Doornik "The purpose of my practice is to provide state-of-the-art Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine care in an efficient and compassionate fashion. I believe that new technologies combined with traditional craftsmanship are the keys to successful surgery. I am board certified in both Orthopedic Surgery and Sports Medicine. My experience includes thousands of shoulder arthroscopies, knee arthroscopies, and knee replacements. Minimally invasive techniques are used in all the surgical procedures I perform so that my patients may recover as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Technology and craftsmanship are important but not everything. Compassion is also a key ingredient to good medical care. This is often lost by the time we become surgical specialists. Patients tell me that they appreciate my bedside manner. I hope you find the same is true for you."
