I would Absolutely recommend Dr. Allsing to anyone needing surgery. My knee replacement was perfect and I felt cared for and all my concerns answered. His staff was patient and kind and really helped me with pain management.

My experience with Allsing Orthopedics exceeded all my expectation for successful surgical results, attentive care and guidance through the process, and prospective plans for total health of my hips. The Allsing team is their best tool. Everyone in the group shares a concern and responsibility toward overall comfort, confidence and success.

Dr. Allsing and his staff are wonderful. Everyone is very professional. I have never had to wait for my appt. Everything in his office is handled efficiently and pleasantly. His PA Scott is a definite asset to Dr. Allsing's practice. My surgery went well and I'm very happy with the results.

I had my first acl surgery which apparently was regected by my body(?) then had a second surgery which was apparently a waste because my knee gives out/ buckles on me, even after a thorough physical therapy/ recovery. It's been a few years since the 2nd surgery. I'll never be the same. I fear for my life when I grow old. So many activities I'm not able to enjoy. Oh and I am left with a huge scar on my knee. I would be completely ok with it if I had a somewhat normal right knee.

Dr Allsing and staff care. They are knowledgeable and professional and sometimes, even fun! Completely trustworthy. I'm sold on them and their expertise.

When it comes to doctors I do my research and have always been asked how I find such great ones. Well I feel I have done it again with Dr. Allsing! Dr. Allsing and his office is for sure at the top of my list. Dr. Allsing is a doctor who knows his field, thinks deeply about things, cares greatly for his patients and has a great personality as well (which for a surgeon is an unusual thing). I don't give a grade of 10 to most if at all but in Dr. Allsing's case he gets a 10!
in San Diego, Ca |
My experience with Dr. Allsing and his staff was nothing short of outstanding. From the time I sat in on one of his seminars, my wife and I was impressed with the MAKO Robot he used to perform total hip replacement. We made the appointment with him and after that the surgery was scheduled for 19th of October. I couldn't be more happy and satisfied with the outcome of my surgery. I was never in any pain from the actual replacement. What little pain I experienced, was more from the soreness.

I took my mother to Grossmont Hospital after she suffered a bad fall and broke her shoulder, meaning the ball part at the top of the humerus. Not only did we never even see this doctor, he had the ER doc discharge her, claiming this injury would "heal itself." When I followed up with another orthopedist, we were informed that her condition was emergent and in fact, the only way to fix this was with a shoulder replacement, as this type of injury will not heal. Dr. Allsing failed miserably.
We are sorry that your mother suffered this type of injury. When we are asked to consult on cases in the emergency department, all the facts and circumstances are evaluated. We offer next office day appointments to discuss all options in a more controlled setting. Given the restrictions and the lengthy recovery following shoulder replacement surgery, we believe that a conservative approach is always a best and reasonable first option. We hope your mother a speedy recovery.
