Met Dr Semb about 3rs ago he did surgery on my right arm .He is compassionate with how you are feeling, and listens to what the patient has to say. Would recommend his expertise on any one
in New Lenox, IL |
Went to see him about my knee that has been acting up and to understand if there was a explanation for it. Dr. Semba was not only extremely helpful, but cared about me as a person. I was beyond impressed with my experience. He is inspiring, and acknowledged everything I had to say. He is very intelligent, kind and friendly. I would recommend him to anyone. All the reviews should say 5 stars because that's how great of a doctor he is.

Dr. Semba is very friendly. He did the hip surgery on my mother and did a great job with no complications.
in Mokena, IL |
I fractured my ankle on Tuesday afternoon and was able to schedule an appointment Wednesday morning with Dr. Semba. The staff was very friendly and efficient. Dr. Semba explained my injury and my options. I found him to be very professional.
in St Charles, IL |
Dr. Semba was personable and straightforward. He was compassionate to my Aunt who was the patient and listened to her complaints. He answered my questions and took time with us. Dr. Semba is professional in his approach and yet makes patients feel comfortable and cared for. I feel fortunate to have had him referred to my Aunt after her fall and broken hip.
in Lemont, IL |
I have know Dr. Semba for 16 years. He has preformed 5 operation on me and 2 on my daughter. I regard him as one of the finest surgeons and trust him 100%. All of my surgeries have been very successful from shoulders to knees. He is very thorough and explains the problem and the procedure clearly.

Dr Semba, takes the time to listen to whats going on with your injury and checks it out and runs arays or tests to see whats wrong,making sure nothing else is going on!
Lockport, IL |
Dr. Semba was great with my 12 year old daughter. He took the time to answer our questions and my daughter felt very comfortable with him.
in Lemont Il |
I went to Parkview Orthopaedic Group today and was seen by Dr. Semba for the first time for a shoulder issue. Dr. Samba was very personable while yet still very professional, explaining my issue and promptly treating it, making sure the treatment was helping before I left. I know in the future I'm going to have more of these joint issues and it's comforting to know I'll be able to have Dr. Semba there to take care of it. He's a knowledgeable, good doctor.
in Gardner IL 60424 |
Dr. Semba has been my ortho dr for several years. I have had two surgeries performed by him. carpul tunnel and a hip replacement along with some injections for my aching and aging joints. he is a very talented surgeon, but he also is a great person, his bed side mannor is by far the best I have ever experienced. also with my surgeries post op recovery was accomplished far quicker than anticipated. I credit this to his skill as a surgeon. his attitude and demeanor far exceed any dr I have seen.
in Lockport, IL |
I liked him after his first words. He took his time, listening to our problems. Everything was well explained. Hi bedside manners were exceptionally good.
in Joliet, IL |
I went to see Dr. Semba for a fracture in my left wrist. I was expecting to leave with a cast on my arm. Dr. Semba read the xrays from St.Joe's Hospital in Joliet and did not agree with their results. He suggested I try a splint or a cast for ten days. Of course I chose the splint. I will follow up with him in 2 weeks. This was the first time I met Dr. Semba and I was very comfortable with him. He tells it like it is.
