My husband went to see Dr. London , because he was feeling ill and had swelling in his elbow. My husband was lucky to see him because the infection in his elbow started spreading throughout his body. Dr. London took excellent care of my husband. He got him on right antibiotics, and he followed up with us right away on the lab results. The office staff was very kind and helpful. I found Dr. London to be very concerned and informative of what was going on with my husband.

My mother went to see Dr. London to discuss a knee replacement. He was kind and took a long time to explain the risks and what the surgery would entail . He was wonderful and the surgery went well.

Dr. London has been my Orthopedic Doc since 1982. I have resided in Florida for the past 16 years and still fly to Los Angeles for my orthopedic needs. He is the best of the best, not only in my opinion but in the opinion's of all the people I have known over the years who have trusted him to perform necessary surgeries. Over the years, I have needed back surgery, knee surgery, shoulder surgeries, hand surgery and bones mended. Excellent results, excellent Staff, He gave me my quality of life.
in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA |
I've been Dr London's patient 25 years. He's the best in his field. The results of my surgeries have been highly successful. I couldn't ask for a better orthopedic surgeon. He takes as much time as needed to assess my concerns. I'd give him 6 stars, if only I could..
