He is the best surgeon out there. Had both hips done by this surgeon and both times were a success. He is really one of the best. His staff was great, leah and Denisse helped me with all my scheduling needs. Dr. Cepkinian made sure he worked his miracle! I am so glad my insurance authorized him ! I made the right choice.

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.

This doctor came highly reccomended to me. He is highly skilled and compassionate. He did what is called a anterior hip replacement on me. I am running after the grand kids again. Thank You!! I did m=wait a few weeks to get in but it was well worth the wait.

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.
