PATIENTS KNOW US BEST

OUR MISSION

At Golden State Orthopedics & Spine, our mission is to help each patient live their best life, whatever that means to them.

We treasure our patients and work hard to achieve this mission every single day.

I have been to Muir Orthopedic several times over the past few years. Once to get a shoulder fixed and just recently to get a partial knee replacement. The staff couldn’t be more friendly and helpful. The doctors that have operated on me are wonderful caring people and have helped me get back to having a normal life without the pain that I use to have. I will need another partial knee replacement and another shoulder fixed and I will be happy to let them do the work.

OrthoNorCal is awesome! It is very accessible. The administrative staff and medical staff were very friendly and fun. Doctors are thorough and take their time to explain everything to me in layman’s terms. They laid out for me what should come next and provided several referrals to further assess my condition. I look forward to the continuing care that they will be providing for me.

The Best of the Best! My husband had an accident mountain biking, I called them around 8 am the next day and got an appointment within an hour, and surgery in only a couple of days after learning that he needed surgery. There is never a long wait when you have an appointment. We really had a great experience and will definitely recommend them to family and friends.
