I was referred to Dr. Katcherian by my family doctor in Newport Beach because I would feel a sharp pain to my wrist every time I played tennis. Dr. Katcherian turned out to be great! He repaired a ligament to my wrist and shortly after my wrist was much better! He’s also a very friendly doctor. I highly recommend him for any type of hand pain.

I felt very comfortable in the care of Dr. Katcherian, first because he trained at Columbia, but secondly because of his excellent bedside manner. I had gone to several orthopedic surgeons and most wanted to rush me to surgery without taking the time to explain my options. Dr. Katcherian took the time to really help me understand and I never felt rushed and always felt like he truly had my best interests at heart. I would recommend him to anyone needed a hand surgeon.
