Dr. Diefenbach's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Diefenbach "It was an easy decision for me to begin down the track of Orthopaedic medicine, as I have always appreciated the mechanics of how the body works. A personal love of recreation, sports and activity, was the driving force behind my pursuit of specialized training in foot and ankle care. I have advanced subspecialized training with a Foot and Ankle Fellowship from the University of California, Davis, where I cared for arthritic, sports, traumatic, and complex reconstructive injuries of the foot and ankle. I believe in shared decision making, ensuring each patient (and their family members) completely understand their problem or condition, the treatments available to them, and their influence in which course of action to take with treatment. I will always individualize each care plan to help my patients reach their activity and quality-of-life goals. I treat each patient as though they are a member of my own family and consider it a privilege to treat and care for my patients."

I love meeting each patient I see and learning more about their personal goals and activity styles, then mapping out a care plan to ensure they achieve those goals. I look forward to meeting you! "

Patient Comments (1)

Chris was assigned to be my Ortho Physician. He looked at my injury and we discussed options and procedures. I felt like I knew so much more about what was occurring with the tissue and components of the injury after our discussion. Even though Chris was the smartest person in the room he didn't...more
