Dr. Thordarson is excellent at what he does. I have had ankle pain for years and he was the only Dr who said he could fix it. He is kind and caring. My surgery went great and am looking forward to a pain free ankle! I highly recommend Dr Thordarson!

Dr. Thordarson did an excellent job on my bunion surgery. He is extremely knowledgeable and skilled, and is also very personable and a good listener. He followed up on my recovery carefully through Health Loop, which was really helpful and reassuring.

One week down one week to go!! So far so awesome!!! As long as I don't keep it lower than 90 degrees for too long ZERO pain!! Without drugs!! Dr David B Thordarson at Cedars Sinai (an Orthopedist who specializes in feet) is my hero!! When he said the surgery would ELIMINATE the pain I have dealt with in my left big toe joint since the DUI crash in 84', I figured he was not being straightforward....who knew! I see him next week to learn about the next step (so to speak)...

Intelligent, skilled, kind, patient, caring, thorough, really top notch. Takes the time to teach each patient. I looked for many years for a surgeon to do my particular procedure and did not have this level of confidence in anyone until Dr Thordarson. I have already referred friends and an immediate family member to him. Would highly recommend Dr Thordarson with absolutely no reservations at all.

I have the upmost in confidence in Dr. Thordarson and would recommend him to anyone. He took the time to explain my options and upon leaving his office both my husband and I knew he was the Doctor of choice for me.

Dr. Third arson really listened to me and was attentive to even the smallest details. He is soft spoken but don't let that deceive you, he knows what he is doing. Very kind, spends time explaining and answering questions.
