I wish I met Dr. Weinstein sooner. I was having severe back pain that was debilitating. I never felt like a number, but rather that they genuinely cared about me and the pain I was in. For the first time in years, I am pain-free and am able to enjoy life again.
MRSA attacked my knee and hip joints from an old ski accident. Not only did Dr. Mikulak need to replace my knee and hip, but fight the MRSA at the same time. He recommended an infectious disease doctor, who worked together to heal me. I could have lost the leg….but now I am back to skiing, bicycling, and hiking… As if that is not enough of a recommendation, his staff is kind, supportive, and a pleasure to work with. His close relationship with Hoag makes the surgery coordination seamless.
Dr. Rose is the best, most knowledgeable, and genuinely caring medical professional I’ve ever consulted with, and very thankful to be given the opportunity to work with him and his staff.
I like Dr. Venuto's quickness, there is no hesitation in his decision-making or his actions. He knows orthopedics so well he doesn't have to stop and think. He answered all my questions and concerns immediately.
No words can express my gratitude for the excellent professional care that I receive from all the staff of the California Orthopaedic Specialists. I drive down from Seal Beach because of the surgical skills of Dr. Scott Forman but also because of the well-managed office which is filled with staff that all are focused on giving the patients a positive experience while obtaining medical care.
Dr. Gregorius is AWESOME! He is the best doctor. He is so kind, caring, and good at what he does. He helped me so much. I truly appreciate having such a great doctor to help me.
