“Dr. Jain was extremely thorough with diagnosing our son’s football injury. Although the outcome wasn’t what we wanted to hear he was truthful and blunt about treatment. We appreciate his kindness, concern, and care he showed our son.”

“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.”

“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.”

“This has been the most comfortable surgery I've ever had, not that I've had many, but just saying. The doctor and staff have been great, and there have been no surprises, which I like. All in all, I would recommend SCOI, Dr. Balch, and hip replacement surgery to anyone who is contemplating doing it.”
