What People Say About Dr. Marvin Lo, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Lo has given me my life back. Before seeing him I could hardly walk a block without being in excruciating pain. He took X-rays and said I would need partial knee replacements in both, but not before trying non surgical procedures first. I had my first partial knee replacement in March, 2017. I couldn't believe how easy it was. I scheduled my other knee replacement July, 2017 and could not be happier. Every time we do our four and a half mile walk I want to HUG Dr.Lo. He is wonderful !

Dr. Lo is so good that Doctors in Philadelphia are referring me back to him. He has an awesome bedside manner, I had hip surgery and my wife had two shoulder surgeries with him. I just came into California yesterday to see him again about another issue. Beyond outstanding, knowledgeable, professional and USA fabulous surgeon.

I have only good things to say about Dr. Lo. He fixed my left shoulder (SLAP tear, spur). As another reviewer mentioned, he's confident, yet humble. Very down to earth, no nonsense, but has a sense of humor at the same time. He takes the time to explain things, doesn't rush you. Oh, and he's a great surgeon, too. :-) Highly recommend.

I'm a physician who works w Dr. Lo. He has been helping me w a complicated orthopedic issue. He's a talented orthopedist and genuinely cares about his patients. Confident without being narcissistic. Personable. Strong positive recommendation.
