Great doctor! Very informative and caring. He has done multiple surgeries on me and I would never have anyone else!

Dr King does follow up visits every 6 weeks unless I request to see him sooner in which case he fits me right in. I wouldn't be able to walk if it wasn't for this highly experienced Doctor. He has been a god send!

Loved the care and expertise I was given! Thanks for putting me back together perfectly!

Loved the care and expertise I was given by Dr King. Highly knowledgable and informative. He doesn't sugarcoat the situation and let's you know in detail what to expect. He has always followed up my concerns pre and post op. I will always chose him to do my surgeries and/or families of need be. Thanks for putting me back together perfectly!

Most arrogant doctor I've ever met (and I'm a nurse)

This man should resign immediately for multiple reasons: he egregiously discredits his profession because of his disdain for his elderly patients; he is grossly arrogant and lords over the Arroyo Grande medical community and it's citizens like a tyrant, knowing he's all we've got, pretty much; his bedside manner, especially towards his elderly patients, is patronizing, mean-spirited, and haughty; most egregiously, he gets away with providing absolutely no after-care or follow up after he "cuts 'em and leaves 'em - then he charges the insurance companies, stating that he has visited the latter patients jn the hospitals and rehab centers - totally fraud!! I am an experienced nurse, and I am so angry at his treatment of patients, I want to slap his arrogant face.!!!!

Two Stars

Awesome surgeon. Truly blessed with talent. His major problem is his after care. It doesnt exist. I was a patient of his and granted im happy with the fact i still have my leg i saw him only once after i was released from the hospital. It is 19 mo later now and i still have an open wound on my lwg and he still hasnt seen me for it. He needs a better balance
