Our Concern

I would like to inform all of my patients that I will be retiring from clinical practice as of April 1st, 2022. It has been my absolute pleasure to take care of all of you for over 30 years and I want to do my best to make sure you are taken care of once I am gone. I have arranged with OSI (Orthopedic Specialty Institute) in Orange to see any prior or new patients after April 1st.

Dr Shepard and the other surgeons in their clinic are excellent and were specifically selected by me due to their skill and reputation. In addition they will have all of the electronic medical records which will aid them in taking care of you, or be available for you if you seek treatment elsewhere. Thank you all for putting your faith in me and allowing me to take care of you for all of these years.
