“I've had to surgeries with Desert Orthopaedic Center and both times I have been pleased with my experience. Dr. Miao was punctual and informative while also showing care for his patients and work. Everyone I've dealt with at DOC has been accommodating and hopefully I don't need another surgery, but if I do, DOC is where I'm going to come.”

“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. Baldauf is wonderful. He is a caring, compassionate doctor who tells it to you like it is. No fluff, just the truth of the matter, gives you all of your options and then lets you make the decision. When you get to know him, he has a good sense of humor too, and I like that in a doctor. He came highly recommended to me by my primary care physician. I would not want to go to anyone else.”

“Dr. Raissi was very knowledgeable about my foot problem. After seeing the x-rays, he thoroughly explained the surgery and what he was going to do to correct the lousy situation another foot doctor had caused. He told me what to do after surgery and how to take care of the foot. He did an excellent job of repairing my foot damage. I am very grateful to him.”
