Dr Staples did a complete hip replacement in may of 2019. I found that not only is he very professional but hes just a nice guy. And to tell you how good he is, after 6 months of healing i went back to firefighting, both structure and wildland with no difficulty what so ever. Oh and im 60. Thanks doc, Michael Ricci

Great doctor. Listens and does not rush me when I ask a million questions. Empathetic. Truly one of the kindest persons I have ever met and best doctor I’ve ever been to. I’m due to have some surgeries at some point because of my condition. I won’t be afraid this time.

After the car accident, I was petrified that I would never walk again. Dr. Staples assured me we would be better off than it seemed. Four months later, I am walking and so happy. Dr. Staples and his staff help patients stay calm and know they are in the best hands.

Hip replacement 9 months ago. Dr Staples is a phenomenal surgeon and I would go back to him in a heartbeat if I need the other hip done. He is genuinely concerned about you as a patient, takes time to explain everything and it was an absolute joy to go through this process with a person of such integrity and warmth. We are so fortunate to have him in the valley.
