Dr. Verdin is amazing! He provides very individualized care and is a great communicator.

May 2017
He´s knowledgeable & professional just not particularly friendly. Not much humor.

April 2017
My impression of Dr. Verdin was that he is a very patient, thoughtful, caring physician. He spent a lot of time with me going over my various orthopedic issues and his explanations made excellent sense. He gave me good ideas on how to manage my issues without the need for surgery, which was music to my ears! He left me with the idea that if the pain levels should increase, I can always come back to revisit these issues and to address the need for surgery at a later point in time. I really enjoyed his demeanor and felt comforted by his knowledge and prescriptions for how to best deal with my knee and shoulder injuries and issues.

July 2016
Dr Verdin, in my short 68 years of experience, is one of a very few doctors who I would call a true Physician, second only to Dr Farrokhi in Neurosurgery. His knowledge, professionalism, compassion, empathy, skills and simple caring about his patients make him one of the most valuable physicians I´ve ever met.

July 2016
One of the best doctors I´ve had.

For the last 5 years I have been getting shots in my hip _____ & pain returned. It became more apparent to me it might be a knee issue - leg was getting weak, steps a huge problem. Dr. Vendin took a knee x-ray and voila! There was the problem which he can repair when needed. HE TOOK THE TIME TO TAKE MY PAIN SERIOUSLY and determine the source. Bless him!
