I came to Dr. Verch in 2012 with numerous past injuries from dirt bikes and mountain bikes. After numerous visits to other doctors, who failed to give me relief from my knee pain, Dr. Verch was a breath of fresh air. His office staff was wonderful, friendly and professional. Dr. Verch explained what caused my pain and how he could help.He took great care with me, from pre-op to post-op. I trust him completely and will refer anyone who needs a great surgeon to Dr. Dana Verch.

I've been working with Dr Verch for over 5 years. First I had a bad rotator cuff. Physical therapy and exercise took care of it. Then he checked my left knee that has cause increasing pain. He said I was good for a few more years. Then last winter we decided to it was time. He was great, talking me through the process. His staff help with disability and time off paperwork. They all are compassionate, helpful and cheerful at a time there may be a great deal of pain. I highly recommend Dr Verch.

In 2007 I had a total knee replacement done by Dr. Verch and have had no problems with it. I go see Dr. Verch every 5 years or so to keep my workmans comp claim open. Dr Verch also did 3 orthoscope surgeries to remove free bodies and a shoulder surgery, all with very positive results.

Dr Verch is an excellent surgeon. In January 2016 he repaired my torn rotator cuff. He told me he wasn't sure he could fix it because the torn muscle appeared to have retracted too far. He said he'd open my shoulder, and have a look. If not repairable, he close it. He was able to pull the torn. Muscle and reattach it. In 3 months, I was fine. In November 2016 he did a total hip replacement on me. I want home the following day. 5 months out my hip so perfect. I highly recommend Dr. Verch.

I would never recommend this practice to anyone. Dr. Vetch is cavalier and arrogant, and the bulk of his staff is cold and rude. He put us through soooo many unnecessary cycles, it was expensive and painful. And the result is awful! Bottom line, my family made a big mistake trusting this doctor!
Sacramento, CA |
All around great team. Had Surgery on both achilles over 6 year gap and these guys are awesome.

I've had both hip and knee surgeries with Dr. Verch. Both went great. I'm very impressed with his willingness to listen to my concerns and address all of the questions I had.

I have seen Dr. Verch for a few issues ie: knee, shoulder, ankle, so I am very familiar with his practice. He listens and is very patient with all the questions you might have. I couldn't recommend him enough and I truly trust his opinion and experience. There is no other orthopedic that I would see.
in Folsom, CA |
My experience with Dr. Verch and everyone in his office was outstanding. I am a retired RN and was very impressed by the professionalism and efficiency of him and his staff. Most importantly he is a doctor who listens and works on your team! During the 9 months I have been his patient he is done arthroscopy on my knee and then a total knee replacement. I am 8 weeks post op total knee and I walk better than I have in ten years. Definitely recommend him for care!
in South Lake Tahoe, CA |
I have had two surgeries with Dr Verch. I have a couple questions about my knee so i called to set up a appointment as Dr. Verch advised if I had questions to call. The lady who answers the phone tells me they no longer accept my insurance I tell her that her website says they do accept my insurance so she hangs up on me. I have my insurance company call to figure it out and the same lady hangs up on them too. CLASSY MOVE. So i call back to set up a cash visit and they say they dont accept cash
