  • Dr. Wong is a star!

    Dr. Wendy Wong is the best! What a positive experience I had with her! She is compassionate, skilled, caring and never rushed. The entire staff at both Muir Ortho and at Sequoia Surgical Pavilion were great. I was well prepared through comprehensive education materials and my calls were answered quickly. She performed a total hip replacement and my recovery has been amazing, without the use of opiates! After only two weeks I am walking without assistance and driving. Dr. Wong is a star!

  • This was the best thing I ever did!

    Thank you Dr. Wendy Wong (and the Orthopedic Staff),

    You all made my operation at Hospital (Sequoia Surgical) a reasonably pleasant experience.

    The partial knee replacement is working fine, still need some fine tuning, but well on the mend.

    This was the best thing I ever did, and I have you to thank for getting me this way. I can never say enough about how much better I am with this Partial Knee Replacement.

    Thank you for everything.

  • I was totally blown away

    Dr. Mead always talked with me about the plans for my treatment.  When I got home I knew exactly what was expected of me.  I’ve been in physical therapy for 4 months now, and I can’t stress enough how important it is to a fast and full recovery.  Setting up my home recovery center was also very important.  I’m very happy with how things went.”

  • 100% Confidence In Dr Wong
    Dr Wong is a no-nonsense Saturn five rocket that attenuates that thrust with clear expectations and a better-than-you-think listener skill set. She is just the type of doctor, surgeon, machinist, and mechanic you want to be thinking of and looking at just as you are losing consciousness in her operating room. Confidence at 100% - doubt at 0%.

    I was absolutely amazed coming into an "urgent care" facility, which I expected to be packed and have to wait a long time, with how fast things went and how awesome Joe Torres was. He was knowledgeable, listened, and really showed he cares. And within 24 hours they got approval for my MRI and got it scheduled two days from now. Very impressive experience.

    The entire staff was helpful, courteous and truly a good experience. Dr. Wong was exceptional. She listened intently, provided me options, and answered all my questions very thoroughly.

  • Examination was very thorough
    Dr. Qureshi gave a very informed second opinion regarding necessity/potential effectiveness of lumbar fusion. His ability to read the MRI quickly and in detail showed how experienced he is. His physical examination was very thorough, much more so than the other surgeon (not from MOS).

    Dr. Tischenko is extremely knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with – he is also an excellent communicator. More important, his treatments are extremely effective.

  • The treatment was a success
    Good to see Dr. Sacco again, as he had treated me over 15 years ago. He listened and then totally explained what was wrong with my hands, explaining the treatment and the possibility that the problem may need further treatment. The fact that I can type this survey 24 hours after treatment means to me that the treatment was a success and I hope that I can be completely free of symptoms and pain in the next 30 days.

  • His manner is comfortable but professional
    Dr. Schilling is an attentive and knowledgeable physician that takes a measured approach to the reasons for the appointment. His manner is comfortable but professional.

  • I got an appointment the very next day
    MOS never ceases to amaze me! I was asking for a lot and a rapid response too! I got an appointment the very next day, filled out the New Patient Online Forms, and was out of my appointment with Dr. Wiseman in Brentwood & heading home approximately an hour later! I’m feeling better already and just got a call from Dr. Wiseman’s office and now have an MRI scheduled on Oct. 6th, due to a cancellation.

  • Very friendly, yet very thorough
    I absolutely love Dr. Kou! His knowledge, professionalism, compassion and down to earth explanations were beyond refreshing! He was very friendly, yet very thorough. He made sure he knew my case prior to coming into the room, explained what had happened and had a complete solution to the issue. He never made me feel like he was in a hurry. He also made me feel extremely competent in his work. I would highly recommend Dr. Kou.

  • Very clear with his plan, what would occur and how to deal with it

    Dr. Preston was very clear with his plan, what would occur and how to deal with it. He understands my profession as a firefighter and what we put our bodies through.

  • Immediately felt at ease

    When Dr. Qureshi entered, I immediately felt at ease and that I was in the presence of a gifted healer. He had reviewed my records thoroughly and communicated clearly his findings, including the need for further tests. He took time to listen and spoke slowly and clearly when I told him I had a hearing loss.

  • Thank you very much for your top quality care

    The receptionist that answered my call informed me of the urgent care that is open from 3:00 – 8:00 pm. I was nervous that I would have to wait for hours to be seen. We arrived early and was immediately checked in. To my surprise I was taken into the exam room within 15 minutes. I saw Joseph Torres, PA. He ordered an X-ray and I was back in the exam room in 20 minutes. Mr. Torres was very sympathetic and spent as much time as I needed as he explained our next steps. The receptionist and medical assistant were very kind, informative and professional. Thank you very much for your top quality care.

Great team.

    I am extremely grateful to be in the care of Dr. Chang and his assistant. I can’t imagine any doctor being more skilled, more compassionate, more genial or a better listener.

  • It has been life-changing

    In December 2017, I fell and badly injured my left hip. Over the next several months I embarked on physical therapy and pain management with no relief. I was eventually referred to Dr. Wong. Upon our initial meeting, I knew she was the surgeon for me. She was warm, friendly and very positive. She answered all of my questions and I felt very comfortable making the decision to undergo surgery. I cannot thank Dr. Wong enough for giving me the confidence to move forward with the surgery. It has been life-changing. Thank you Dr. Wong.

  • He’s GREAT and I would recommend him to anyone

    I am very grateful for Dr. Sacco’s expertise and medical care. He performed both of my carpal tunnel surgeries years ago, but I have since moved to Oregon. I flew down to CA just to have Dr. Sacco assess/treat my new trigger finger because I am so confident in his medical care. He always takes the time to explain his assessment, treatment options, post-treatment expectations and future treatment plan. He’s GREAT and I would recommend him to anyone.

  • Relaxed, non-stressed approach

    I enjoyed the professionalism, the relaxed interaction with everyone, the non-pretentious medical attitude. It was a pleasant surprise, as if I were among friends. From beginning to end of my visit. I especially like Dr. Contrares’ relaxed, non-stressed approach and allowing for questions… I rarely look forward to a visit with a doctor, but I do look forward to a visit to this office as well. Seven years ago Dr. Lange gave me a wonderful new knee and I have been eternally grateful as well as a walking billboard for his work.

  • The best in NorCal

    The reason I drive 55 miles from Stockton to Muir Orthopaedic Specialists is because of the outstanding care and service I have received ever since I discovered Dr. Toma who replaced both of my hips. In fact, since I dislocated my right shoulder, I drove with my left arm just so that I could see the best in NorCal.

  • Highly recommend this team

    To varying degrees, I’ve been suffering with hip issues for 20 plus years. The previous 5 specialists dismissed me by either saying I was too young to have problems, it wasn’t worth their time, or it wasn’t their specialty. Dr. Michlitsch identified the issue, addressed and informed with complete confidence and professionalism. His PA Rachel Robertson is completely competent, professional, and pleasant. She always spends the extra time to answer any and all questions. She’s quick to respond and follow through. I highly recommend this team.

  • Showed genuine concern

    I injured my back wakeboarding. X-rays taken at urgent care were inconclusive, so I tried to muscle through for a few weeks in hopes it would heal on its own. It didn’t and my pain was excruciating.

    Then I saw Dr. David Nelles at Muir Orthopaedic Specialists in Concord. He reviewed my X-rays, asked me a multitude of questions, did an exam, and performed a few physical tests. He then recommended an MRI and scheduled me for the soonest available. During my follow-up visit with Dr. Nelles, he shared my MRI results in detail and confirmed I had a herniated disk.

    I expected him to recommend surgery, since that’s what orthopedic neurologists get paid to do. Instead, he recommended a cortisone epidural and again scheduled me for first available. The day following the procedure was the first day in two months that I felt little to no pain and it’s been that way ever since. He showed genuine concern, nailed my diagnosis and I’m especially pleased he did not recommend surgery. I think I’ve written only 3 reviews in my life, but Dr. Nelles deserves this one.

  • Thank my lucky stars that Dr. Wong did my surgery

    Little did I know when I signed up for a hip replacement, that I would get a “rock star” for a surgeon.

    Upon meeting her for the first time, I was taken aback by her youthful appearance, and asked if I were her first patient (and thus a guinea pig since she appeared to be about 18 to me). Dr. Wong smiled and said she’d already done “hundreds of hip replacements.” Still, I was a little apprehensive.

    I took the class for pre-operation hip replacement patients at the hospital. I was the only one who was receiving the anterior method. All of the others were having the conventional posterior surgery.

    Well I was fortunate indeed, and thank my lucky stars that Dr. Wong did my surgery. My pain level was between a 0 and 1 the first day and settled into a firm 0 after that. I was walking the first day, used a cane on the 3rd day, and could actually walk without a cane on the 7th day, but continued to use it to please my physical therapist who signed me off with an A+ after the 3rd visit.

    There are no words to recommend or applaud this talented doctor adequately. If you are lucky, like me, Dr. Wong will be your surgeon too!

  • He took his time with me and I never felt rushed
    Dr. Nelles was thoughtful in his analysis and had a conservative approach which I appreciated. He took his time with me and I never felt rushed. He clearly explained his treatment plan and the thinking behind it as well as options and follow up. The whole office was extremely efficient and I was finished in an hour which included: checking in, payment, x-rays, seeing Dr. Nelles and him printing out and reviewing stretches and exercises for me.

  • So understanding, straightforward and honest
    Dr. Wong was fantastic. She was so understanding, straightforward and honest. I loved her enthusiasm in answering all my questions and offering help with anything I might need in the future.

  • Never had one bad experience

    I just love the entire staff at both the Brentwood and Walnut Creek facilities! Everyone is very friendly … from their X-ray techs, casting experts, front and back-office staff to the doctors. I have never had one bad experience and I was at their facilities a lot before and after my surgery for my broken ankle! I have been in some form of the medical field for 20+ years and I am really big on customer service …They are great at it! I just love Dr. Moorthy and Dr. Garcia! They did my surgery on my ankle and did a great job!

  • Very helpful

    During my visit with Dr. Pecci for an injection in my left hip, I asked him about PT options or possible stretches that I could do on my own to help loosen up my back, which has gotten very tight due to the issues with my hip. Dr. Pecci offered to have one of the athletic trainers chat with me to determine what types of stretches may help. Ethan was very helpful, asked a couple of questions to pin down my issues, and came back with a short stretching program. Great to have a one-stop-shop!

He listened, asked what my expectations were concerning my recovery and then explained what he would recommend in order for me to achieve getting back to my usual routine! He had reviewed my medical chart and tests prior to seeing me, so I felt completely confident in his final diagnosis and how to proceed! I thank Dr. Tischenko for his compassion and expertise!

  • Gave me my very active life back

    After many months of hip pain, I called Dr. Brad Crow on the advice of my friend who had recently had her hip replaced by Dr. Crow. My first appointment was very thorough, including X-rays of my hips, and I went away knowing just about everything I needed to know about my condition and choices. Dr. Crow and Ms. Emily were very knowledgeable, very honest and easy to talk to. I was immediately comfortable. I knew this was the place for me. I had hip replacement very soon after and to this day, not one moment of the pain of any kind! … My active life returned to normal within 2 weeks of my surgery! I would highly recommend Dr. Crow and his associates! Dr. Crow gave me my very active life back!

    As my first time at an orthopedic office, I was uncertain how things worked. My questions were answered and everyone was very helpful and courteous (front desk, MA’s, X-ray). I liked Dr. Wong. She is a “no-nonsense” type of doctor, who assessed, explained, clearly and treated me as needed.

  • Had a positive impact on me

    As an aging athlete and a “weekend warrior” in the club playing pick-up basketball, I was fortunate to be referred to Dr. Preston after tearing my achilles tendon. During the course of my care, I was impressed by his interdisciplinary knowledge of sports medicine and exercise science. Since then I’ve engaged him on numerous occasions as sports medicine advisor and referred him to both colleagues and friends alike. Just as he’s had a positive impact on me, we’ve been fortunate to have him as a regular member in our club, often taking both personal training or getting in a cardio workout. Regardless of what he’s doing, he’s always available for a question from a personal trainer or member. It’s truly refreshing to find an MD so enthusiastic about getting his patients moving toward a healthy and active lifestyle.

    Dr. Tishchenko is extremely knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with – he is also an excellent communicator. More important, his treatments are extremely effective. Having had major rotator cuff shoulder surgery six years ago, I can say with confidence that the results are nothing short of a miracle. He is an excellent surgeon and physician.

  • Goes above and beyond

    Without going into the “novel” of my spinal issues, Dr. Lee treats me as a person, a unique individual who happens to be his patient. He doesn’t talk “at” me, he talks with me and all decisions are mutually agreed upon. At one point I had issues with the billing department and was denied services. When he found out, he was able to get it resolved, scheduled my appointment and took care of the problem. No doctor does that anymore. He goes above and beyond. There are not enough words of gratitude that I can express to thank Dr. Lee and his staff. They are amazing.

  • My knee feels great
    I was having a lot of knee pain and my chiropractor said that I had tendonitis. However, I was not improving from his treatment. When I sought out an exam from MOS, I saw Dr. Wong. She was very kind, listened to my story and offered her opinions. She gave me tests and X-rays and recommended an MRI. After seeing the MRI she said that I needed surgery to repair a torn meniscus and arranged for a prompt surgery date which I appreciated. Afterwards, she explained fully what she had seen and done. I am now fully functional and walking the golf course without pain. My knee feels great! She was very thorough with me, friendly and had a sense of humor….I know that if eventually I need a knee replacement, I will surely go to her. Well done!

    Dr. Michael Michlitsch is one of my favorite physicians. He is so warm, listens carefully and I can feel that he sincerely cares about the patient and the problems. I love that he understands the importance of my activities. He did not discourage me or stop me from doing something he knew I enjoyed doing. I am aware that things might have to change but the positive attitude he shows is highly respectable. I highly recommend him with problems related to any sports, weight lifting and other high impact activities. He is very confident and very professional.

  • I feel a lot better

    The confidence Dr. Toma had with my complication of prior hardware from surgery in childhood was the best part of my experience. I have seen two other surgeons in Fresno and I am so glad I waited until I moved up here and could have Dr. Toma do the surgery. He did my elderly mother’s hip replacement and she did very well. While I am not exactly looking forward to surgery, I feel a lot better about it since meeting Dr. Toma.

  • Absolutely satisfied

    Dr. Fulkerson treated me like a person – not an old lady. Too often doctors take one look at grey hair and figure it is an endurance test, which is unavoidable. I feel absolutely satisfied with him. I talked, he listened and answered me directly. He was understanding, professional, all a patient could ask for and more. And he has a wonderful sense of humor.

  • I speak very highly about his care and professionalism

  • Just as good as the ankle I was born with

    I have been a Coca-Cola salesman for over 30 years. I started with Coca-Cola in the shipping department before college, and it was there that my ankle injury started. My ankle had worsened over the years and I was in constant pain. Dr. Moorthy recommended the STAR ankle replacement and I jumped at the chance for relief. I experienced very little pain and discomfort during recovery. Now, I work out at 24 Hour Fitness three times a week and there isn’t any exercise I can’t do. My new STAR ankle replacement is just as good as the ankle I was born with.

  • What a fabulous team

    I came to MOS because I needed surgery to repair a torn meniscus. I was anxious, but Dr. Michlitsch came to see me before the surgery and totally put my mind at ease; I knew I was in good hands. I am grateful for everyone I came in contact with, from Dr. Pecci at the beginning to Dr. Michlitsch and his assistant to everyone at the surgery center to my PT— what a fabulous team. They all work together for the patient. Thank you MOS!!

  • Caring and very informative

    I was an officer in the Army for 21 years and during that time I developed osteoarthritis in my left knee. I couldn’t do the physical activities that I had performed my whole life, swimming, cycling and water-skiing. I came to MOS and saw Dr. Preston, Dr. Narloch and Dr. Lange. All three physicians were outstanding. Each was caring and very informative as to what procedure I was about to undergo.

    Dr. Lange fully described the process at the pre-op appointment, the type of replacement I would be receiving and what surgical steps he would take so that I could, once again, get full extension of my knee. He definitely made me feel less anxious before my surgery. Now that my left knee is back in action, Dr. Lange will be replacing my right knee, too.

    - James H.

  • I would not go to anyone else

    After a lifetime of active living, I needed replacements in both of my knees. Our annual family trip to Maui was in six months and I didn’t want to be stuck at the hotel in too much pain to be active with my family.

    Dr. Kronick didn’t even flinch when I asked him to replace both knees at the same time! He is pleasant but professional and has such a positive outlook. I needed that in a doctor if I was going to get back to living my life the way I wanted to.

    I have taken my new knees to Maui and France, keeping up with my family the whole way. I am truly a person whose life has changed 100% thanks to Muir Orthopaedic Specialists. I would not go to anyone else. Only Dr. Kronick and MOS.

  • An outstanding doctor

    Everything!!! From the moment I stepped in the office, I was greeted by the friendly, courteous office staff, and within minutes, it was my turn to see the doctor. Maria, the nurse assigned to my case, asked questions, took my stats and made me and my visit feel valued. This continued with JonathanDr. Tischenko‘s assistant, who reviewed my X-rays, asked pertinent questions, referred me to a hand specialist, Dr. Schilling, and even set up an appointment for me! Dr. Tischenko spoke to me about the possible choices that I might be given as well as telling me Dr. Schilling had performed surgery on both of his hands. That spoke volumes and I knew I was in good hands! Everyone I had contact with at MOS was professional, caring and sensitive to my injury. Several years ago, I became a patient of Dr. Tischenko when I injured my knee in a 10K race. He helped heal the problem in his usual professional, caring manner. So when I injured my hand, I immediately sought Dr. Tischenko because I knew he would take care of me! He is an outstanding doctor!

    My wife and I had the same doctor it was Dr. Knight on the same day in the same room two different injuries. Hers was the shoulder down to her hand and mine was my knees. From the time we got in the room, the assistant started taking blood pressures going over the medicine list and the reason why we were there. They were very courteous inefficient and took their time with each of us. Dr. Knight came in and listen to each of us along with answering any and all questions we both had he was very respectful and very professional. He has a great bedside manner.

  • Straightforward in a no nonsense way
    Dr. Chang was what I liked best. He was high energy, attentive, and gave more information about my condition than I’d received before. He was straightforward in a no nonsense way, which was refreshing instead of offensive. I’d be happy to see him again.

  • Not only an excellent surgeon, but a wonderful, empathetic doctor
    On several separate occasions I have had the opportunity to learn that Dr. Toma is not only an excellent surgeon, but a wonderful, empathetic doctor as well. He listens to anecdotes and frames them in a system-wide response that suggests how to respond and find solutions. I appreciate that and recognize that it is rare to have both these qualities.

  • Very happy with the whole process

    My appointment was at 9:30 and I was in the exam room by 9:25, history and blood pressure, then quickly to Xray, then back to the exam room which is within minutes Dr. Lee entered and began his questioning and exam. Very happy with the whole process. Very pleased with Dr. Lee’s professionalism, thoroughness of questions and the high level of treatment recommendations provided.

  • Very engaged and interested in my issues

    Everyone was very friendly and efficient, from the woman at the reception desk, to the gentleman who fitted me for my boots! Dr. Moorthy was great! He was very engaged and interested in my issues. Often doctors can be very dismissive and rushed, but this was definitely not the case here!

  • Dr. Lewis is amazing
    I have been in pain for 3 months and saw 2 nurse practitioners at UCSF. I was given an extensive prescription of anti-inflammatory medicine with no improvement. I knew of Dr. Lewis through a friend who needed wrist reconstruction and my daughter who needed a botched wrist fix. I had a very high expectation of Dr. Lewis when I made the appointment. He gave me a cortisone shot and to my shock and surprise the pain is gone. Dr. Lewis is amazing. For the first time in months, I use my left arm and I can sleep at night without pain in my left arm.

  • Thank you is not enough

  • A warm and friendly manner that makes me feel at ease
    Dr. Tischenko performed a trauma surgery on me years ago and saved my foot, and I’m now having complications from a recent “minor” surgery done by someone else. He remembered me and my injury after many years, and this felt like “coming home.” Besides his experience and expertise, Dr. Tischenko takes the time to listen and he clearly cares about his patients– he has such a warm and friendly manner that makes me feel at ease despite the fact that there is no easy fix for my injury. I know I’m in the right hands now that I’ve returned to Muir Orthopaedics– I would trust him and the Muir Ortho team with my life.

  • Extremely professional and personal

    Everyone I encountered was extremely professional and personal. I love it when one of the receptionist knows who I am as soon as I walk through the door.

  • Maybe the best orthopedic surgeon in the Bay Area
    Dr. Lange is one of the best, maybe the best orthopedic surgeon in the Bay Area. He is very professional, listening, asking the right questions. Talking to him it feels like talking to your friend. We are blessed in the Bay Area to have physicians like him. Thank you.
