Testimonials

Just wanted to let you know that in June I received a “total hip replacement” of my right hip. Dr. A. H. performed my surgery and I couldn’t be happier with my results. The surgery was done in San Antonio and went according to plan. The procedure took about 2 1/2 hours  and I was up walking the very next day. I was able to go home the following day after surgery as well. I was given “home exercises” as my rehab. These exercises were simple yet very effective. I have since gone back to playing golf again with no restrictions. Once again I couldn’t be happier with the results of my experience and surgery! Thank you for your Medibid service, its a wonderful website as has allowed me to find the right doctor at the right price. As a result I “got my life back”! Thanks, Perry Hunt.

I just wanted to send you a quick e-mail to let you know how pleased we are with the MediBid approach to hip surgery. Jim and I traveled to Glendale, California on September 8 and Dr. A performed my hip replacement on Wednesday, September 12.  The level of care from the surgical staff was amazing. We have never before experienced the level of compassionate care that we did in Glendale.  Dr. A is wonderful and was so available to us post surgery.  We stayed at an Extended Stay Hotel a little longer than first planned, as I had a couple of issues after surgery that Jim and Dr. A discussed via cell phone and I came through with flying colors.  Dr. A made 3 house calls to check on me, change my dressing and  remove my stitches.  We traveled back home the weekend of September 22, arriving home on the 24th.
We would highly recommend Dr. A to anyone who might be lucky enough to receive and accept a bid from Dr. A for an orthopedic procedure.
We are thankful to have found you online!!!  I am happily recuperating and making good progress each day.

I believe it’s important to get the word out so others will have the same opportunity I had to get the level of care I received.  I still can’t believe how great my outcome was and how much money we saved by going to Glendale!

A “Deal or No Deal” service – WellSphere

“Savings is a guess. I think I have heard that procedure could cost more than $20 k, or as little as $5 K, but the convenience of the location was worth a lot. (I paid about $8500.) I made the guess based on help with getting unnecessary lab canceled that wasn’t in the bid.  I am very grateful to Medibid and to all involved in the procedure.

“I have never before had the level of personal and professional medical care as I did with Dr. Totoro and the Surgery Center of Oklahoma. I had two surgeries done simultaneously that were arranged by Dr. Totoro. Both Doctors called me personally, not their nurses, they called. One before the surgery and the other called the next day after surgery as I was traveling home. Their care was the best I’ve seen and their price was unbelievably reasonable for what they did! I highly recommend them!”
