Testimonials

I have always had a very active life style and was growing increasingly frustrated when painful and undependable knees forced me to restrict my activities. Both my husband and I had been referred to Dr. Diana for other problems and we were very impressed with his confidence and competence. I was surprised when he suggested he could replace both my knees at one time but it turned out to be a great decision since it I was back to my old life style in the shortest possible time.

From pre-surgery to final rehab, the care I received from Dr. Diana and Queen of the Valley Hospital was exceptional. I knew what to expect during and after the surgery and was able to recover very quickly. A day after my surgery the physical therapist had me walking on my new knees. Within a half-week I was climbing stairs and after two weeks I was walking “normally” again. I consider this nothing short of a miracle. I believe that Dr. Diana’s skills, complemented by his caring personality, made it all possible.”

I was living with everyday hip pain at about level 6 with frequent spikes to 9+ (on scale of 1 to 10.) It was the worst when I went from lying or sitting down, to getting up and moving. I undertook non-operative care on my own, including chiropractics and accupuncture, and both provided temporary relief but the hip pain returned within a few days.

I researched online and found Napa Valley Orthopaedics website, read about Dr. Shifflett and his experience, and the orthopaedic program at the Queen Hospital. My first meeting with Dr. Shifflett, I recognized that I was not just merely another surgery and he has a genuine personal interest in my outcome. I appreciate his dedication and it’s reflected in his work. I called him at 7pm one night after I’d come home from the hospital with a question on my medication. Dr. Shifflett returned my call within 20 minutes… that level of commitment is exemplary.

I was an active participant in my physical therapy, and the results show. Today I live my active ranch lifestyle pain-free. I ride my horses, walk, bike, whatever I want or need to do. The difference is dramatic – having hip surgery may have been one of my best decisions to date.”
