Dr. Sirota had an immediate understanding of the issues surrounding my hip. He was helpful, and wanted to make sure my goals were considered during this procedure.
No complaints. My recovery is going well.
Absolutely HORRIBLE management. On hold more than 30 minutes before just giving up. Can't email because site keeps kicking back to patient portal with no way to register. Guess their not trying to get new patients.

I had total knee replacement surgery on August,15,2016,Did a excellent job, I sent e-mails to his nurse, with medical questions, and she was always good about responding back in a timely matter, and the front office staff are very nice. My only complaint was during the pre-op, there was a lot of lack of communication with Melissa, She didn t tell that I was going to be getting a call from Grossmont hospital telling me that I had to take a mandatory class, and meet with pre anistsa,

The WORST possible doctor & experience a patient can have. First of all he is a student in a training program. They slap an MD on them and pretend they are specialists when they are pubescent b-r-a-t-s. This kid looks like he's about 10. His only claim to fame was wrapping ankles for ped-ophile football in Pennsylvania. This ruse appt was about pulling a switcheroo so they could bill an unbooked AM time slot. He took many x-rays for a condition that had NOTHING to do with my issues. why?-$

In all my life, I've never had to deal with such an arrogant doctor. He never once answered any of my questions. Every time, I was in a middle of sentence he would cut me off. On top of it all, he has a nurse who has the worse attitude. I was speaking to her she rudely gets upset as I'm telling her its hard to get in contact with your office, then walks off and never came back and the doctor shouts to me we'll call you. If I know he's the last doctor on the planet, I will NEVER go back to him!
