Hello again oldacl-ga,

I'm sorry, from the text of your question it seemed you were just
asking for a few good Dr.'s in your area. It always helps us as
researchers if you can give as many details as possible in the
question so that we know EXACTLY what you want. Let's see what we can
find for reviews for you to back up the offices I listed for you as
good Doctor's in the answer. I did check reviews as I did the
question, please be aware it was not just a basic search. I just
didn?t know that you wanted them listed along with the Doctor?s.

Due to HIPPA ( many Dr's have stopped
doing testimonials from former patients due to privacy relations.

The Stone Clinic will put you in contact with former patients who have
agreed to share their experences with new patients. You may contact
Lola at (415) 563-3110 or for more information.

I also found this information on the Stone Clinic and it's Dr's.

Here are reviews of Dr. Stone.

?Dr. Stone is a world-renowned knee specialist, and either
former/current doctor to the US ski team as well as a host of other
household name Olympic and professional athletes, ballet dancers,
entertainers and politicians. People literally seek him out from all
over the world.?

?Kevin Stone of The Stone Clinic in SF is one of the best.?

?I would recommend Dr. Kevin Stone of the Stone Clinic in the Marina
in San Francisco. My understanding is that he is the best, or one of
the best, around. His walls are filled with pictures of very famous
athletes thanking him for his help/work. Very famous household-name


Now for UCSF Sports Medicine Center I have also found some very
positive Dr. reviews.
For Dr. Scott Dye? (

?He is one of the top knee specialists in the country.?

There were also the 2 very positive reviews on Google Maps from
patients who have used Dr. C Benjamin Ma and Dr. Christina Allen.


For Dr. Jeffrey L. Halbrecht of the Institute for Arthroscopy and
Sports Medicine I have found these reviews:

?If you need an Orthopedic Surgeon, this is the guy!?

All 3 reviews there rate him as Highly Recommended.

I also found 2 reviews at Yelp. Yelp is a review site that uses the
slogan ?Real People. Real Reviews.?

?Dr. Halbrecht is an excellent doctor and surgeon. I received great
care from him, and found him straight forward, patient and committed
to my recovery. I've recommended him to others who've all had
exceptional experiences.?


For California Pacific Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine I found a review
from someone who used to work there and also a patient at Yelp.

The employee of both recommends this place over UCSF actually. 

?I've worked as an intern at both places and CPMC definitely treated
me a lot better. The doctors are nicer and more relaxed. Doctors
defintely spend more time with you here and its a lot less confusing.
I would definitely 100% recommend Dr. Gilbert as a knee and hip
replacement person and Dr. Bost is a nice person too.?

The patient review says :

?California Pacific Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine is the BEST!?


Here is a site that rates Orthopaedic Doctor?s from users? ratings.

You can use this to maybe check into other Dr?s that I have not listed.

as it was written.
