  • “Doctor Richard informed me prior to fusion surgery on my right ankle that I would participate/enjoy my quality of life playing tennis again, working in the trade show industry, and most importantly, walking/moving without a limp. I have achieved those goals. God Bless you, Dr. Ferkel and staff at the SCOI center.   Todate I am 100% healed and living a normal active life without impairment regarding the surgery on my right ankle.”

  • “Every once in a while the universe provides—and that's precisely what happened to me. I tore my Achilles' tendon, but waited too long to get treatment. I decided to seek an opinion at the SCOI Van Nuys Saturday morning clinic. They did X-rays and I was told I needed surgery to correct the problem. I was also told that I was fortunate because the best orthopedic surgeon in the world worked in the building. I'm Canadian, so the notion of paying for a medical procedure is a foreign concept. Even before meeting Doc Ferkel (Sr.), the staff at SCOI were friendly and knowledgeable and were always quick to answer my questions regarding the logistics of my circumstance. I read a lot online about Doctor Richard Ferkel before my first consultation. I even listened to an interview he did regarding his NBA patient Joel Embiid. Then it happened... I read that Doc Ferkel is a drummer. Suddenly I knew I'd be ok. I earn my living from music and in live situations I am a drummer. The tendon I hurt is on my kick drum foot which is essential to playing drums.  From my first appointment, Doc Ferkel has made sure regaining my ability to perform was of primary importance. The procedure he used in surgery was specific to my needs and his attention to detail in recovery has made me feel like everything will be ok.  After an operation, 6 casts, crutches, and an air cast I am on the mend. I look forward to meeting the people in physiotherapy at SCOI as I am positive they too are professionals of the highest order.  Thank you, Doc Ferkel and SCOI for giving me the beat back!  ”

  • “I saw Dr. Ferkel for a second opinion after another doctor at a different medical group suggested I needed bilateral knee surgery. Dr. Ferkel explained that my condition is complicated by psoriatic arthritis and that it would be best to get this condition under control first. He also indicated that it was doubtful I needed bilateral knee surgery. He took the time to discuss these things with me and explained them very effectively and logically. I am also receiving physical therapy @ SCOI. The physical therapist, Dale, has helped my knee and back conditions immensely. I feel fortunate to have such a great medical group near where I live and work.”
