Dr. Dee went above and beyond to address and repair all aspects of my complicated knee surgery. He is a highly skilled & thorough surgeon, explains healing strategies well, and makes sure the follow up care is done completely as possible.

Annette Carden-Dale – Apr 23, 2021
I had left shoulder surgery October 23 2018 at Robotics Outpatient Center - Roc LA. I had left shoulder impingement syndrome long head of the biceps rupture, rotator cuff disease, acromioclavicular joint degenerative disease and a labral tear and extensive posterior labral tear and posterior complete humeral avulsion glenohumeral ligament tear. I personally was concerned about having surgery because I never had any surgery before in my life but I have to tell you that the surgery went really well, I had no pain what so ever I went to every physical therapy appointment and I have 100% range of motion I have the upmost respect for Dr Dee I think he is a great Dr. And I would recommend him to anyone and I have. My recovery time was exceptional, I went back to work at light duty in 2mos and full duty 2 mos after that, I've been water sking snow sking and throwing chains at work with absolutely no problems. I give Dr Dee 5 stars most definitely

Karen V. – May 21, 2019
Dr. Dee has been helping me maintain healthy joints for about five years now. He's helped with preventative measures, such as synvisc (and/or orthovisc... I don't remember the name of the one that he uses, but it was great for my knees!); PRP; cortisone, etc. For surgeries, I feel so safe in his hands! He's done a knee repair, a shoulder repair (rotator cuff), and most recently, a labral hip/FAI repair. I feel cared for in medical ways as well as in the emotional support of his office staff.

The doctor was very nice and had great bedside manner. He actually spoke to me for more than 5 minutes (wow). I got a PRP injection on my knee and it was a very quick process. PRP works and relieved my pain greatly. Highly recommend Dr. Dee!

Santa Ana, CA – Aug 01, 2017
I was looking for alternative options for ACL surgery and Dr. Dee recommended stem cell injection therapy. This treatment method was foreign news to me, but Dr. Dee explained it in such great detail that i decided to give it a go. With months of chronic knee pain, I was desperate. Let me tell ya... WOW! The results were spectacular. I felt immediate pain relief within a week or so after. Best part is... I did not need a knee replacement.

Dr. Dee is wonderful!!! I have played beach volleyball most of my life but one day I took the wrong step. He ordered me an MRI and gave me a PRP injection. It worked wonderfully! I would recommend all my friends to him Thank you so much Dr Dee!

Becky in Los Alamitos – Apr 28, 2017
This has been the WORST experience. I had an appointment with Dr. Dee, had my MRI, went to make another follow up appointment, come to find out he moved his office without notifying his patients. THEN the billing nightmare! I have an HSA but they wouldn't take it, insisting I send a check. After a couple of billing cycles and continuing arguments, I finally sent a check. The check cleared and they CONTINUE to bill me. WHAT in the world is the problem here? AVOID at ALL costs!

I had a meniscus tear and consulted with him to get knee surgery. Dr. Dee made the entire process really easy. He explained everything in detail to me and made me feel at ease. Now, I can prepare for my marathon again. Thanks doc!
