Dr Gherini replaced my right hip in2002, it was the best thing for me at that time. I traveled from Sacramento to Ukiah today for a follow up and pain I was having due to trauma a few weeks back. He was very helpful and I was please to see my X-rays showing that the hip he replaced looks just like it did the day he replaced it.

Dr. Gherini is an experienced, talented surgeon. He did a superb job on my hip replacement. I was out of hospital in 48 hours, walking with a crutch w/o pain. The care at WVMC was spa-like. Hip hip hooray! He masks his care & professionalism with a dry sense of humor.

Rude. Dismissive. Openly insulting. Not supportive or helpful unless what you need is surgery.
