My initial consultation for a second opinion about a recent surgery went very well. Dr. Waking was honest, articulate and offered a potential alternative to another surgery we’re going to try first. He took the the time to answer all my questions. I’m glad I came.

Dr. Wakim was highly professional and took time to explain my condition and the range of options. He didn't (like other doctors have done) suggest the most aggressive (and most expensive) option but rather a path of options that will determine over time what works for my specific situation. I agreed to take the first option step and am thrilled with the results - I am pain free in my knee for the first time in years!!! I highly recommend Dr. Wakim!! Debbie (age 67)

Dr. Emile has an excellent bedside manner, is personable, extremely knowledgeable, and is willing to take the time to help his patients understand their bodies and how best to live with and/or mediate injuries. I highly recommend seeing him as your orthopedist.

Dr. Wakim's knowledge, professionalism and bedside manner are beyond compare. I live in Oak Park, CA and drove down to see the Dr. in Huntington Beach. The entire experience was extremely helpful and informative. I have been to many Orthopedic Doctors and have never felt as informed and confident about my pathway back to health as I did with the Dr. Wakim. I highly recommend him and will never work with another Orthopedic Dr. other than Dr. Wakim again.

The worst physician ever! WAKIM, EMILE PAUL Was paid good money to write an medical evaluation the evaluation was inaccurate had missing information it was incomplete and overall WAKIM, EMILE PAUL did a very poor job. I even provided him with the requested information he never revised his report , which cost me hundreds of dollars just because WAKIM, EMILE PAUL FAILED TO DO HIS JOB , IT’S APPRENT EMILE WAKIM truly exemplifies the very essence of incompetenc

Dr. Wakim appears to be very caring but I have to question his knowledge as an orthopedic surgeon. He did a very poor job at setting my broken radius bone which has resulted in me having to have surgery by a different Orthopedic Doctor. I have now have a plate and 9 screws in my wrist. If the original break had been set correctly by Dr. Wakim I could have avoided having the surgery and months of Occupational therapy.

Extremly personable, knowledgeable and skilled in orthopedic surgery. Dr. Wakim has replaced my left knee, with great result. I am scheduled to have the other knee replaced by him shortly. He's the best!

I have a rotary cuff problem due to swimming. I wanted to try PRP for my shoulder to avoid surgery. I went for 3 treatments, paying out of pocket and was good for two years. When the pain came back from over using it, I tried Kaiser Permanente, since they started the treatment as well and my co-pay was only $10. It did not work for me as well. Yesterday, I went back for 2 more PRP shots to Dr. Wakim and already I can tell, it is going to work. It takes the right doctor for the PRP injections!

He is a good doctor but the front desk staff is not caring about patients and they put me on hold for 15 mins and they said they will call me in 2 mins but it takes 30 mins and I called them again and they put me on hold again and waiting for them to call me back
