What can you say about Dr. Schamblin and his team at the SCOI facility? WOW! From the very beginning, he and his staff were nothing but amazing. Hats off to him and his team, and a special thanks to Dr. Tobias. The facility is top notch and there is something to be said about having all of their services on site at the SCOI center. This was my third orthoscopic procedure and by far, it was the best. From the receptionist to all of the doctors, it just seemed that they went out of their way to ma

Have had a good experience with Dr. Shamblin and his capable PA, Lesley Lucero. Thankful that my shoulder surgery was kept local and it was not necessary to travel out of Bakersfield. I:will recommend this good doctor to others.
in Bakersfield, CA |
Dr. Scrambling was very clear about what was wrong with my shoulder, what it would take to repair it, and what to expect. While being thoroughly professional,he also has a very friendly enjoyable relationship with me as a patient. He has a very positive encouraging demeanor when going over the time and commitment that a serious rotator cuff surgery and rehab will entail. I have been thrilled with the surgery results at this time. I had very little pain or swelling and no scarring.

in Bakersfield, CA |
I have a ton of respect for Dr Schamblin and my expectations have been totally met with regard to the surgery and outcomes. I appreciate the staff and have been treated with respect and caring attention. If I had any criticism it would be the length of time it took to get in after my injury and then getting surgery scheduled. In fairness tho it was the holiday season and might account for the lag time.

Dr. Schamblin and his entire staff are great. Dr. Schamblin came highly recommended and after my dealings with him I would recommend him with no hesitation. I was mostly concerned about the skill of my surgeon. To find when who is very skilled but is also pleasant and caring makes it even better.

Dr. Schamblin is a true professional with a knack for this discipline. My experience was amazing, and so was my recovery. I attribute my painless recovery to Dr. Schamblin's high level of expertise.
