Patient Comments (2)
in LAKE ELSINORE |
I'll be happy to leave a review. Last April 19th i had a hip replacement surgery by this so called doctor whp only put the stem and ball in saying that my socket was ok. After visiting him 30 days later. i told him i was having alot of problems and that something was wrong, he took and xray and boasted about his work completely overlooking my concerns. Let me add i am on medi-cal and this surely plays a role. since i only have room for a few characters, i will say this doc is low on the list
I had 2 total knee surgeries with Dr. Gersten and both were very successful . He was great, but I have to say the joint replacement program @ Saddleback Hospital is an excellent fine tuned program which made it go so smoothly ????. Kudos to all the nurses & Physical therapists as well as Dr. Gersten, because it is a team effort!!
