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! I highly recommend Dr. Petit. He takes his time explaining things, you will never feel rushed. He understands the sports I do and can relate my surgery and recovery to those activities.

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.

I was at my withs end with bad ostioarthtis in my right knee and did all the alternetives to avoid surgery but nothing g worked. I was housebound for a year and no dr would listen to my story and the fact i needed a partial kneee replaceement until i meet him and he said ok lets go for it. Love love dr petit. He has a nice staff too. Marta

He was amazing! I went in for what I thought was my leg and a very intermittent problem, I thought he might think I was a little crazy haha. He was so patient, kind and extremely thorough. He was able to diagnose and treat the problem all in the same visit! Within a few days I was up and running again. Then, my mom shattered her knee cap and I took her to Dr. Petit, same amazing bedside manner and care.
Hillsboro, OR |
He listened, let me ask questions, discussed the diagnosis and generally was a really good doctor. I was impressed on all three of my visits.
