Fantastic surgeon

Dr. Gorab did both my knees and my right hip. In my mind, there is no other choice. He is an amazing surgeon and his passion for expert care reflects on his staff both in the office and at the hospital. He is highly regarded by those who work for him and care for his patients. Everyone is always amazed at the speed at which I recover. Susie, his PA, is the go to person for any questions and is so patient. She is such a nice person. I hope my other hip doesn't require surgery any time soon but he will be the only one I go to when and if it is ever needed. He gets 6 stars from me.

Left Knee Arthroplasty (Replacement)

First rate surgeon with superb, caring and efficient staff. Operates at Hoag Orthopedic Institute in Irvine, a first rate facility dedicated to joint replacement surgery. I, at age 59, had not had surgery since my tonsils were removed as a child. Every aspect of this experience was handled superbly -- appointments, financial questions, scheduling, requests, surgery and post-operative care. You are in good hands with Dr. Bob Gorab and team.

Excellent Care

My experience with Dr. Gorab and his staff has been excellent. He spent as much time with me as I needed and I never felt rushed. His staff returns phone calls and follows up promptly. The online support with checklists has been very helpful. I felt completely prepared for surgery and for the recovery period. He was recommended by many friends and I have, in turn, begun recommending him as well. I'm not easily impressed and he has done it.

Four Stars

I've only had limited interaction with Dr Gorab. I suppose, however, the results speak for themself. My hip feels great two weeks after surgery. Gorab's support staff is terrific.
