Merced, CA |
I’ve had many surgeries and he was the only one who called me on a weekend to check how I was doing. I recommend him without reservation.
Merced, CA |
Had mutiple problems after a series of botched surgeries out of town. He took on my case and was finally able to allow me to walk without pain. I will be forever grateful.

In 2010 , I was involved in a MvA broken almost everything I was under his care for 2yrs . Dr Sablan Saved my leg that would not stop getting infected after the Emergency Department Drs in Fresno told my sister if I woke up I'd ever walk again....... Dr Sablan got his hands on my bones and after 18 months i was walking with a walker and returned to work. As of now I have been walking unassisted for close to 3 years .
in Merced, CA |
Professional, great demeanor, not rushed, compassionate. Office staff are knowledgeable and pleasant. I highly recommend Dr. Sablan.
Merced, CA |
Very friendly and pleasant. Gives his total attention to you. Very highly recommended by hospital nursing staff. Don't really know about scheduling urgent appts., but I did have to wait a little bit of a wait for my non-urgent surgery, maybe 5 weeks(?) He's a busy doctor, but he always has time for me, and encouraged me to call his cell phone after surgery with questions, etc. I did call him once, and he picked up the call and seemed happy to talk with me. Dr. Sablan is great!
in Mariposa, CA |
I had a wonderful new total knee replacement 12 weeks ago. My progress has been excellent. I will have the other knee done in 7 weeks. Everything about Dr. Sablan is perfect: quality of work, care, personality, availability. I always have a list of questions in my notebook. He cheerfully answers all of them.
in Merced, Ca. |
He has been my surgeon for the past 3 years. And in all honesty, you can't find much better! Excellent surgeon, great bedside manner, and very informative. I was asked to get a second opinion, and there really was no need...I love this guy!! Being comfortable and liking your Doctor, is 50% of the battle. I totally trust and recommend this man. Five Star worthy!
