Riverside, CA |
My daughter had knee pain and was leaving for an intensive tennis academy and we needed to see the doctor right away. We actually got a same day appointment due to a cancellation. Our office wait time was minimal and the doctor was very thorough. He took X-rays on site and then expedited an MRI with only a 1-2 days wait . He spent ample time talking with us about his prognosis and then offered to call and email the MRI results while we were headed to the camp.

Dr Matthew Diltz is one of the best sports medicine orthopedic surgeons in Coachella valley. I have used him multiple times. His entire staff is personable, friendly and professional. From his PA, nurses, right down to the entire staff working at the DOC in LaQuinta, EMC Argyros health center. The doctor's team rocks

Very understanding and attentive to my knee and hip problems. He also likes jazz which is an indication of sensitivity and real plus in my book. Love the guy. Roger Karshner Rancho Mirage, CA

This doctor is one of the most caring and compassionate doctors you can find. He is totally dedicated to each of his patients to deliver the highest level of orthopedic care at Eisenhower Medical Center. He is friendly and personable, listens and never rushes you. Answers all your questions. He uses arthroscopic techniques in his surgeries. He has performed 2 successful surgeries (hip, tendon repairs, shoulder) and I couldn't be more satisfied.

I had surgery for a dislocated knee cap. Unfortunately, 3 1/2 months after surgery, I have worse pain now than before surgery, my physical therapist was the person who found out that my knee cap is still not in the correct spot and Dr. Diltz had no suggestions of what could be wrong. Office staff for Desert Orthropedic Center, in general, work extremely slow. Not pleased because I will most likely be needing another surgery and I will be having that done by another surgeon. Do not recommend.
