“Dr. Choi was great. Seth was great. When I saw Dr. Burns for shoulder surgery in the past, he was great.”

“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.”

“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.”

“I met with Dr. Hernandez a year and a half later to discuss knee replacement and when I mentioned my left hip was hurting, he immediately did an x-ray and it turns out I needed a hip replacement as well. We decided together that the hip replacement should be done before the knee replacement. I am looking forward to having Dr. Hernandez as my surgeon. Highly recommended by patients and doctors.”
