Any Steadman-Hawkins Clinics in California?
« on: June 06, 2005, 01:04:04 AM »
Hi guys! I have read alot of the posts about the expertise of the Steadman-Hawkins doctors. My little county has many (proabably around 12) OS that take my insurance, but I am sick and tired of them all. i would like to get to a doc that has access to the latest technology and teachings. Does anyone out there know if there is a Steadman-Hawkins clinic in California?

Hi,

If you look at the Steadman-Hawkins site you'll find these locations for clinics:

You may want to call the main clinic number and see if there is a former fellow from the SH Clinic near you.  I know Dr. Hacker is in San Diego, and he was the one who did my first procedure in Vail during his fellowship--he's very nice and very competent, as are all of the doctors who come out of that place.

Otherwise, you might consider traveling to Vail for a consult.  It's what I've had to do.
