Literally lost my job because of this doctors office. I tore my rotator cuff and have been unable to work my labor-intensive job. My employer let me take a leave of absence, I just needed visit notes from my apts. Dr. Cepkinian is not a bad doctor, but the office manager Lia was always rude and never completed my paperwork for my job on time. I had to physically go into the office multiple times to get anything done. Lia still did not complete my paperwork and my job let me go because of this.

Dr. Cepkinian is the only one what clearly explained everything to me. He is top doc for hips and Knees. Mostly replacing them. My knee needed a redo after another doc messed me up. Dr. Cepkinian took me on and corrected my hip implant. I am well again. He is a rock star!

Dr. Cepkenian is absolurely, hands down, the best! In May 2016, he replaced my left hip after months of excruciating pain. After surgery, I was up and moving, absolutely pain free, in a matter of a few days. The in November 2017, he replaced my left knee. Again, little to no pain after. I was back league bowling 5 weeks after the total hip replacement and 6 weeks after the total knee replacement. Now, I'm loving life again! Thank you Dr C!

Had my second opinion on knee replacement with Dr. Cepkinian. He was the only doctor who spent the time to explain all that was involved. He answered all my questions . I decided to have my surgery with him. He is a honest and educated guy. Had a very successful surgery. He will be doing the left side next. I recommend him to anyone looking to have a knee replacement. Office staff was knowledgeable as well. Walked me through the paperwork A-Z. Couldn't ask for better.

He is an awesome person,physician and human being. He is the most talented joint replacement doctor in Los Angeles. He has replaced both my hips and I am doing well. So good that I donated my walker to charity and no longer need it. So happy I met Dr. Cepkinian. I don't know why I didn't do this sooner. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Dr. Cepkinian an amazing Dr. His energy is positive. His respect for his peers is admirable, and his humility is an inspiration. But most of all, his keen sense of diagnosis and thorough testing and investigation makes him stand out. And to top it off, he believes surgery is a last option after ruling out all other choices and therapies.

I was an ordinary patient of ordinary means but your team took care of me as if I was the most important person on earth. If every doctor strives to be as caring and generous as you, the world would be filed with smiles and laughter instead of pain and sorrow. Motivation and Positive Attitude are the two most important medicines any doctor can prescribe. Thanks Dr. Cepkinian for doing that perfectly.
