Excellent experience and results working with Dr. Padilla, Encinitas Surgery Center and his staff in 2012 and 2017 for knee scope surgery on both knees. Post surgery PT with Melissa, Michelle and Evan was done very well and accelerated recovery. Thanks.
Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad that you had a good experience with all of our staff.

Probably the most rude and unprofessional doctor I have seen in my life. I had an appointment as new patient, checked in, filled out the paper work, waited ,and walked into the doctor's room to wait for him. In the meantime, an assistant came by and asked me to take a Xray of my elbows (got the appointment for an issue with my elbows). I cordially tell him that I would like to wait to see the Doctor before I take any Xrays. The reason is the
I explained to the patient that I would be happy to take his history and examine him, but with out X-rays I would not have a full understanding of the possible causes of his symptoms. The examination would be incomplete! Therefore I might be unable to provide the patient an adequate treatment plan. My goal is always to provide patients with the best care possible!

Dr. Padilla gained my complete confidence from the very first visit forward. His diagnosis was borne out by an MRI, and he proceeded with surgery for tears in the meniscus. All was very straightforward and everything was exactly as he had predicted. I couldn't be more happy with the care that Dr. Padilla gave to me.

I met Dr. Padilla in the emergency room when I presented with a fracture. Dr. Padilla put me at ease going into surgery with his manner and expertise. The surgery went well and I was discharged comfortably. My interactions for follow up care with Dr. Padilla and his office staff were excellent (and I'm a nurse!!). Would highly recommend!

He has a deep understanding and experience with knee procedures. He performed arthroscopic surgery to repair tears in my left knee meniscus. My recovery has been very quick with minimal pain. Dr. Padilla is a highly skilled surgeon in his field. He also has a great staff that was accommodating to my busy schedule and follow up questions.
