Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
Dr. M. Kenneth Mudge was graduated from Greenville College in Greenville, Illinois in 1956, with a B.S. in chemistry. Following graduation he served two years in the U.S. Army before becoming a General Building Contractor. When their first son was three years old, he and his wife went to Rhodesia where he built a mission hospital and several residences. After two years as a missionary he was accepted into the University of Rhodesia Medical School and earned his medical degree in 1970 from the University of Birmingham, England, having completed all of his class work on the Rhodesia campus. They returned to the United States and Mudge did a year of general surgery residency at Loma Linda University Medical School before going back to South Africa for another mission term. When the family returned to the United States in 1977, with two more children, who were born in Rhodesia, Mudge completed an orthopaedic residency and a hand surgery fellowship at LLUMS. He joined the staff at San Bernardino County Medical Center in 1980 and had been there, (now called Arrowhead Regional Medical Center), ever since, except for short mission trips to Uganda, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Afghanistan. Mudge enjoys working with residents, PAs and medical students. He excels in his extensive teaching responsibilities and takes medical students under his wing to show them how to evaluate and treat an orthopaedic injury. When asked about retirement, he says, "What would I do?" He looks forward to going to work each morning and says that he is blessed to be doing something that he enjoys so much. He and his wife, LeOra, have three children and seven grandchildren, five of them live in Redlands and two are in San Clemente.
