  • Went to this office to get cyst checked out that was in my hand under my middle knuckle. Blown away by how kind and thorough Dr. Dinh was. I'm not the one to brag about someone doing there job well, however it was the best experience I've ever had with a doctor.

  • Great overall experience. Dr. Dinh was professional and knew what he was talking about right away. And the Orthopedic Specialty Institute was awesome. Fast and quick service. Everyone knew what they were doing. I was almost done my whole appointment before I was able to complete all the paperwork.
