Patient Reviews

“Although the knee replacement was the most difficult medical procedure I have experienced, Dr. Hernandez and the staff organized the hospital and home support personnel so well that I felt well taken care of. I would recommend Dr. Hernandez and SCOI to anyone needing similar attention.”

“At my initial appointment consultation, I met with my surgeon Doctor Jaime Hernandez. Doctor Hernandez listened attentively, addresses and answered all my questions and concerns thoroughly. I knew I had met with the surgeon that would provide with not all only the best options for my particular situation. More importantly, he presented me with such clarity and made my decision to have him perform my right knee replacement surgery.”

“Dr. Hernandez listens when I speak to him. He asks for my opinion and includes me in decision making. Has a great sense of humor and makes his patients feel special. He attempts to problem solve when we discuss my damaged femoral nerve that is a result of the last revision of the left hip.”

“Great Doctor and staff, care were five stars before and after surgery! Results of the operation were better than I expected! My mobility is back, and I do not have to use a cane to get around! I will refer Doctor Hernandez & SCOI to my friends and family for their orthopedic needs! Could not be happier with my results! Thank you to the Doctor & Staff!”

“Positive overall with partial knee now at eight week’s post-op. Got through physical therapy. Have better balance with neurological problems because knee swelling reduced the healing effect of living. With the swelling cut, good things may happen. Life is good, thanks, Dr. Balch.”
