Search for Doctor - Orange county, CA
« on: July 15, 2007, 08:14:38 PM »
I was wondering if anyone knows who the best OS in Orange County, CA is ?  I am not sure the ones I have seen are any good... the first one who did my surgery in 2003 was supposed to be one of the top doctors...Dr. Venuto in Newport Beach.  I need someone who understands the need to stay active/be able to exercise and stay fit.

Anyone have any names/ good experiences with doctors in my area?

Thanks...

Francine

Problem is, everyone thinks their doctor is the best. There's really no way to measure that sort of thing. As you already found out, just because someone else says someone is a top doctor doesn't make it so. Great doctors are not always well known. Mine isn't but he did an excellent job on my knee just the same. My husband's friend doesn't like him for reasons I won't get into. So you can take recommendations but they may be meaningless. Your best bet is to find a Sports Medicine specialist if you are wanting to stay active.
