With great sadness I learned Dr. Pyrko is leaving LLU for Orange County. I have had the best care in my life (77 years) with this excellent, caring physician. I am so appreciative of his care through a difficult surgery and life threatening period. I wish him well at Orange Coast. Thank you Dr. Peter Pyrko. Sharon Doty

I found Dr. Pryko to be highly informative, well trained and very experienced. He answered all 11 of my questions in a solid manner. I had a hip replacement done and was and continue to be highly satisfied with the results.
Dr. Pyrko is a blessing to orthopedic hip surgery ! He gave me my life back ! He was honest & caring with me, and also respected my wishes. During visits, he made eye contact with my husband as well as me. When I finally had my hip replaced, Dr. Pyrko's attention was outstanding ! I saw him before surgery, just as surgery was complete, in recovery, & the next day in my room. He phoned my husband as soon as surgery was done. He, his office staff & surgery center staff are excellent !

Dr. Pyrko replaced my left hip on 10-18-16 at Loma Linda. He was very professional and explained everything to me before the surgery. I was very impressed how well run the process went and I would recommend him to anyone. My only complaint was with the nurses who cared for me hours after recovery. They were very young and gave me ORAL pain meds, which I promptly vomited up. I asked her to call the doctor to have it changed to IV meds, he never got that call. I went home the next day.

Not exactly knowing what to expect, I will attest that the professional staff of his office and the Loma Linda Hospital was beyond spectacular. I have never dealt with any Physician, staff and supporting group that have everything covered and treat you like a real person instead of just a number. Everything was just as explained and expected. if I must need medical attention i hope I end up back at Dr. Pyrko's office. Garry Abbott

Dr. Pyrko was friendly and engaging. He reviewed my X-rays and immediately made a recommendation. He took the time to explain how the surgery would transpire, how I would most likely feel after surgery and the time table for recovery. His kindness and knowledge made him very trustworthy.

I have to share my experiences with Dr. Pyrko to anyone who wants a caring, skilled, thoughtfull, and alround excellen Doctor. I had my right knee replaced by Dr. Pyrko four months ago. He fully explained the operation . One month ago Dr. Pyrko replaced my left knee. I am now walking without a cane or any other device. I have excellent range of motion and now enjoy walking for the first time in 20 years. Dr. Pyrko is the standard to which other Doctors should be judged.

Dr. Pyrko is the most caring and excellent physician I have ever had. I went through a very difficult surgery, he kept me informed step by step. He called me at home to check on my progress post op and having worked as a medical professional many years I know he went above and beyond. We are very lucky to have this highly skilled and caring doctor in our area. I would recommend him to anyone I know and love as a fine orthopedic surgeon. Sharon Doty
