Dr Tibone did a outstanding job on my shoulder, very little pain and fast recovery. The whole staff from top to bottom has been great !!
in Fullerton, Calif |
Great surgeon, I cannot say enough about Dr Tibone and the staff at Keck. Dr Tibone has over the top surgical skill.
in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA |
Dr Tibone is the most brilliant and technically skilled orthopedist. I do believe that if he had not been the Dr to operate on my shoulder disaster I would have lost the function of my arm. He is kind and caring. After being married to a physician and managing his and other medical practices I can tell you that the staff is CRITICAL. His nurse manager is a SAINT- always there to answer any questions. She also calls back.

Both my late husband and I had rotator cuff surgery performed by Dr. T. Do your research first about your particular required surgery. Go in with a list of questions that you need answering. Dr. T answered everyone of my questions and concerns. If you require information on the specific procedure there are U Tube videos on the internet that are available, watch them and study. I find that Dr. T is, to the point, (not brusque), as one responded; he is at the top of his game. My choice #1.
in Upland, CA |
Beyond excellent! 30 years of pain...GONE!! I am blessed to have been referred to a gifted surgeon such as Dr. Tibone. I had no idea that i had access to such a great surgeon. Results speak louder than words. I have recommended him to every person i have talk to about my shoulder and following results. THANK YOU DR. T! Steven S
