Initial interview recommend to total replace both knees. Same year same procedure. Monday the 26th is left knee. He is very confident of outcome and said I will typically hate him only 2 days afterwards. I'm counting on him for a renewed quality of life and outlook. All eggs in one basket with results to be published here. Wish me luck

First visit Dr Park made me feel like I was wasting his time with my complaints about my injury. His after care instructions were only verbal and consisted of "See how it goes." Second visit nurse wanted to repeat x-rays done on first visit. Next the xray text tried to convince me to have more x-rays done. Office staff delayed getting my MRI approval by 1 wk did not apologize. No one contacted me after MRI to schedule appointment for 2 weeks.

Dr. Park performed an anterior total hip replacement a little over 1 year ago. I was happy with Dr. Park throughout the entire experience and I am happy with the results - no more excruciating pain in my hip.

I had an open knee fracture of my patella following a horrendous slip and fall. I was assigned to Dr. Park through Trauma Emergency Department at Mission. My case was complicated and unusual. As a Registered Nurse, I can very confidently endorse Dr. Park's expertise. He always took time to explain my plan of care and was patient with my questions. My recovery has been better than either of us expected. I owe my mobility to Dr. Park and am very fortunate he operated on me. Mary F. San Clememte
