I met with Dr. Gregory Dairyko during the Covid crisis due to a meniscus tear. Although it was an uncertain time both he and his staff were very professional and attentive. A skilled surgeon, Dr. Dairyko places as much emphasis on care and communication with his patients who takes the time to answer questions and to outline procedures clearly and with empathy. My surgery and the physical therapy he ordered were all very successful. An additional note, everyone I encountered during my experience who work with Dr. Dairyko (physicians, nurses and physical therapists) offer unsolicited high praise for his skill, patient and team communication, problem solving and attention to his patient's well being. He's the best.

Met with Dr. Dairyko when I suffered a catastrophic knee injury that required emergency surgery. He performed the surgery with mastery skills, spent time explaining the road ahead of me-therapy etc., listened to and answered all of my questions. The staff performed at a high level too.

Excellent physician who blends the science and art of medicine. My knee surgery went smoothly, and I felt well taken care of from diagnosis thru follow thru. Clearly he has the skills to perform the surgery but just as importantly, he was able to manage my fears confidently.

Last year I tore my labrum in my shoulder Snowboarding. The pain was unbearable and couldn’t do my job to the best of my abilities. Thank god I found Dr. Dairyko. He recommended an MRI, and was able to indentify the problem I was having. Dr. Dairyko was very helpful explaining my injury and options for treatment. I decided to go ahead and get arthroscopic labral repair surgery. Dr. Dairyko and his team performed the surgery. The results have been life changing. I am very thankful to Dr. Dairyko

A disappointing experience. Came to see him because of his published philosophy of returning patients to their preinjury athletic level. Instead, I found him dismissive, uninterested in finding out my lifestyle prior to injury, and high handed in recommending a treatment plan without taking my feelings into account. He dismissed all suggestions I made, and didn’t seem interested in discussing treatment options. Couldn’t leave the room fast enough. I have never felt so marginalized by my doctor.

Excellent! I had two procedures done. One on my left knee and one on my right knee. He did an excellent job on both knees and he is a very personable and nice doctor. I would highly recommend him. If I need an orthopedic doctor in the future, he would be the first doctor I would call.

I saw Dr. Dairyko for horrible pain in left knee. First he wanted to try physical therapy. Which made sense starting with a noninvasive treatment but after two PT visits the knee hurt worse and I felt something pop. So off for an MRI the results of which saw a nasty torn meniscus. Microscopic surgery was the only option at this point. Dr. Dairyko did a fantastic job. He really cares about,listens to, and answers any questions a patient might have.

Fell 20 feet from a ladder right onto left ankle and wrist the weekend prior to July 4th Holiday. Was able to see Dr Dairyko the very next day. XR showed break and my foot was a mess. Didn’t want to have surgery at first, but Dr was straight and to the point. Needed surgery. Appreciate his direct nature and he made me feel at ease. Scheduled surgery late on a Monday prior to the 4th for me and put me back together again. Would recommend Dr Dairyko to anyone needing surgery. Extremely talented!

Dr. Dairyko repaired my torn meniscus. The entire process, from initial consultation to post-surgery follow-up, went very smoothly. The doctor identified my problem quickly and recommended appropriate testing to confirm. The surgery I opted for, rehab, and follow-up were all done on a timely basis. Dr. is very knowledgeable and thorough in explaining everything. Highly recommend. If you experience a delay with the surgery scheduler, just keep calling back like I did! Was not a big deal.

My daughter dislocated her knee. She needed her knee rebuilt as she completely tore her ACL and PCL and damaged her LCL. Dr. Dairyko operated on her for 9 hours and was able to do all of it in one surgery. She is recovering well and I really felt comfortable with Dr. Dairyko. He was confident without being cocky and quickly put my fears to rest. Fantastic bedside manner as well. Thanks Dr. Dairyko!

I liked Dr Dayriko. I think the problem is the scheduling. Kerri should answer her phone more often. It is imparative for patients to schedule surgeries. Patients are in pain and need to plan in advance for surgeries. Patients come first , maybe they should hire two surgery scheduling personnel if one cannot answer the phone .

I have been to 5 Orthopedic specialist regarding my knees and I must say Dr. Dairyko is the best out of all of them. He made sure that I was comfortable with him and the environment. He insured that I understood what he explained and he showed concern and sensitivity when administering each injection. I would definitely recommend Dr. Dairyko to anyone that is looking for an orthopedic Specialist/Surgeon.
