Patient Comments (7)
Whittier, CA |
An embarrassingly bad doctor. Condescending and rude. He is a complete hack who had no idea why I was in his office and went against specific instruction he gave 2 weeks after my surgery by saying I needed to walk and be moving. He specifically said that I needed to stay off my feet and when I questioned him about the change in my recovery plan he said that he never told me that and essentially called me a liar. Terrible doctor and a liar to save his own butt. I hope the old man retires soon!

Dr. Mayo replaced my hip nearly 5 years ago. Excellent surgeon and I was snorkeling in Cozumel 2 1/2 months later. He believes in letting the patient set recovery limits instead of rigid rules. I highly recommend Dr. Joe.

most amazing doctor I have ever met, humble, caring and gives you best advise. I have been going to Dr. Mayo for over 10 years, and I trust him with my young kids that has had injuries with sports. may God bless you for what you do everyday for patients.
Mission VIejo, cA |
I visited Dr. Mayo after 5 years of intense pain, sleepless nights, and inability to walk any distance. And I was only 56 when I first saw him. Since then he has replaced both my hips and changed my life. I can sleep at night, walk for miles, and really just live my life again. Dr. Mayo really pays attention to his patients - he really sees you unlike many doctors I have been to. I feel so lucky to have found him and so grateful to him for what he has done for me.
in Costa Mesa, CA |
Dr. Mayo spent time with me, gave me a cortisone shot in my foot where he saw the problem in the x-ray, and discussed the issue in terms I understood easily. His instincts and confidence have proven that all I need is to have some old injury cartilage scraped off, super simple procedure compared to months of rehab another doctor concluded which would have been the wrong procedure anyway. I love this doctor. He is friendly, professional, caring, and I have complete confidence in him.
in Orange, CA |
I have always appreciated Dr Mayo and his staff. They treat me like a person and not just another patient.
Placentia, CA |
ALWAYS late for appointments (and always apologizes, but plan to sit around waiting). To date (after 3 visits spread out over several months, I have received no benefit except to be told that some knee pain is normal with age and that I should get used to it.
