      I would highly recommend Dr. Wesley Phipatanakul to anyone who has shoulder pain. My pain is gone & the mobility has increased. He is amazing!!
      in Apple Valley, CA |
      Dr. Phipatanakul is an incredible doctor. He oozes intelligence, professionalism and a comforting sense of confidence. He has an excellent bed side manner and demonstrates a real concern for his patients well being. Many of his skills you just can not teach, most of which comes from experience.

      Dr. Phipatanakul turned my Dad away from having a crucial shoulder surgery and said it would heal on its own, and couldnt operate anyways where there was minor roadrash. Called the hospital, and got a different surgeon who completely disagreed to Dr. Phipatanakul and took my Dad in for immediate necessary surgery. He was in a rush, and looked like he just wanted to get rid of him so he didnt have to wait long.

      I met Dr Phipatanakul a couple of months ago. I am an 82 year old male who suffered a 4 part shoulder fracture and damaged rotator cuff from a severe slip and fall. At our first meeting Dr Phipatanakul carefully explained all of my treatment options. The best choice for me was a shoulder replacement. From the very first day he has been compassionate, patient, and concerned about me as a whole person. In my opinion, Dr Phipatanakul is a credit to his profession and Loma Linda Health Care
      in Oak Hills, CA |
      Dr Phipatanakul has taken care of me and several family members with shoulder problems of varying severities. All of our outcomes have been wonderful! I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone with shoulder issues. He is highly skilled, intelligent, compassionate and caring .
      in Hemet, CA |
      I and my wife found Dr. Phipatanakul to be understanding of my Shoulder problem, direct and positive in the Diagnosis and reassuring that he could resolve my problem! I had a major successful back surgery 20 years earlier and felt as much as ease that Dr. "P" could help my condition. He did!!! Even only about 5 weeks out of my surgery, I have stopped ALL pain meds and have NO PAIN! My incision is healing Great! I have already recommended a 30 year friend to Dr. "P" knowing he will help her!

      He is not only a great doctor but a great PERSON.

      I found Dr. Pip on the internet. I was searching for a doctor who was experienced in Reverse Shoulder Replacement. I was 72 yrs. old with 2 bad shoulders. Dr Pip is the best. I had my right shoulder replaced in April 2015 and my left shoulder in November 2015. Both Dr. Pip and the Loma Linda Med Ctr have been wonderful. Dr Pip is compassionate, skilled beyond description, excellent surgeon. My results from surgery have been fantastic.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
