“He’s the best!”
– Rosanne P.
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.”

“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.”

“I had an excellent experience with Dr. Fontes and Laura M. Rodriquez PA-C. If and when I need my right knee done I'd like to come back to have it done in Las Vegas at DOC. I would recommend Dr. Fontes to everyone. It's just a short 2-hour drive from where we live here in Lake Havasu City, AZ.”

“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.”
