Do not have Dr Petit operate on you. Two years ago I was a very active 70 year and now I walk with a cane. The Dr severed two glute muscles during a hip replacement surgery which a Dr at OHSU attempted to repair with some improvement. Dr Petit never admitted any complications and insisted...more

Dr. Petit is a fantastic surgeon. I had a torn MCL and meniscus, the MCL healed but the meniscus required surgery/. Everything went extremely well! No more pain, walking in a day or so, riding the bike in a couple weeks. With the snow falling I am excited about being ready for ski season to start!...more

Did not spend more than 5-8 minutes discussing the issue with my hip. Wrote a script for physical therapy and said to return in 6 weeks. I will not return.

Sister have had 4 prior knee surgeries. Dr Petit fixed my right knee on 3-13-17. He is amazing. Tiny bruise which was gone in 4 days. I've been able to walk with no crutches or walker two days after surgery. I climb stairs with no problem. He is a gifted surgon. I highly recommend him.

The clinic is good in general, friendly staff. However, Dr. Petit doesn't seem to be very caring. My appointments took 5-10 mins. I didn't feel get much helped.
