Patient Testimonials

My son, Wes broke his wrist about a month ago and we were referred to your clinic in Katy, specifically Dr. Motamedi. We have never visited such a friendly doctor's office (and with three children we have visited numerous clinics). Everyone from the check-in/check-out clerk, the cast technician, to Dr. Motamedi was smiling, enthusiastic, and friendly. Wes and I both left the clinic in a good mood with smiles on our faces just from being around such nice people, something quite rare when leaving the doctor with a child with a broken bone.

We returned to the clinic last week and Wed had his cast removed and his wrist x-rayed. Wes commented "Everyone seems to really enjoy their job there. Even the x-ray guy was smiling and that has to be a pretty boring job!" quite the comment for a normally disgruntled 15 year old teenager. Please inform your staff in the clinic of their outstanding patient service!

Wow, it's been 7 years since you performed the ACL Allograft surgery on my knee. I do have to admit I was skeptical however, I am playing soccer at full speed, I've ran 6k marathons in 42 minutes, I'm a third degree black belt teaching in my own dojo... ( and I owe it all to your ability.

I truly wish that you remained in Los Angeles but nonetheless thank you. At least now I know where to go if I need work done.

My right shoulder was in constant pain and I could not raise my arm above my head without excruciating pain. Dr. Motamedi diagnosed me as having subacromial bursitis / supraspinatus tendinitis. He gave me a corticosteroid injection in my shoulder and I have returned to completely normal function without pain.

The staff at Richmond Bone & Joint Clinic was very friendly and helpful.  The office was very organized which made for a very smooth and efficient visit.

Dr Motamedi had a great bedside manner and was very easy to talk to.  He explained possible diagnoses, discussed potential treatment options, and what he would like me to do should I not improve.  I did, however, improve very quickly and have Dr Motamedi to thank!
