“Dr. Miao and Tiffany were excellent. After having surgery on my shoulder, I was relatively pain-free, and I feel that Dr. Miao and Tiffany took the time to answer all my questions and address any concerns. Thank you.”

“My experience at DOC with Dr. Miao and his complete staff has been exceptional. The professionalism and dedication they put into their patients are not seen a lot in healthcare these days. My shoulder repair and physical therapy have set me back to 100%. Thanks again to all that were involved.”

“Dr. Miao is the only doctor I have had that took the time to hear what my problems were. He truly puts his patients first even to the point of scheduling emergency surgery to save my leg and life. I might not be here if I had not come to see him and his excellent staff. Thank you.”

“Dr. Miao has been my orthopedic doctor for four years now. He repaired my left torn rotator cuff, and then three years later he repaired the right torn rotator cuff. Dr. Miao is brilliant, and he is on top of his game. You can trust him. He is straight forward with you.”

Treating Doctor: John M. Baldauf, M.D.
“Dr. Baldauf is very knowledgeable, recognized my problem and took care of me right away! He also explained the procedure of the surgery, which gave me comfort. I got good reports from the nurses on how they haven't seen clean staples like mine in a long time, which also made me feel confident in him. Thank you, Dr. Baldauf!”

“I had my two knees replaced by Dr. Kang and his staff. I'd recommend them if you need an excellent surgeon and great staff. I hope that they can continue to see me because my hips hurt very much. Thank you, Dr. Kang and his beautiful assistant.”

“Dr. Raissi performed surgery on my bunion and two hammertoes which included a bone graft, plate w/screws, and pins. He is very knowledgeable and thoroughly explained the procedure and what to expect afterward. The surgery was successful, and all toes are now straight. I’m so pleased with Dr. Raissi who has relieved years of my foot pain. He’s fantastic, and I highly recommend him.”
