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 is the orthopedic I have been looking for all this time,caring,sensitive to my needs and more than anything a lot of patience.my angel .He saw me and after reviewing my medical report told me that at this time I am not a good candidate for knee surgery .I am so happy with the injections he did on my knees .Feel very good and no pain. I am looking forward to continue seing Dr. Pyrko for future knee treatment. Absolutely my angel,!!!!!!

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.
