He made his treatment decision before reading my MRI. I had to ask him to take a look at my MRI and read the report. He quickly glanced at it, then attempted to justify his lack of treatment decision by stating the MRI was of poor quality and did not provide him with the sectional view needed. What he didn't know is that the radiologist spent a considerable amount of time obtaining high quality study and it was useful to other surgeons. He did not do a full physical assessment of my extremity.

Please please ignore the rude front desk of California Ortho, or the nice but frantically understaffed (but good) office assistants, because its actually not a reflection on the quality of Dr. Mohler's skills as a surgeon and his personal interest in your recovery. I've had a couple of hip surgeries with Dr. Mohler and couldn't be happier with his work. I have learned to trust him too, but it's his skill with a knife I personally think is the most important factor here - and he is great !!!
