Patient Testimonials

Dr. Ochiai,
"I wanted to thank you so much for all the care that you and your team gave me when I was undergoing my hip surgery dut to FAI. I wanted to let you know that since surgery, I feel great and I have committed to play field hockey at UVA! I couldn’t have done it without you and your recovery protocol."

All the best,

Dr. Ochiai,
"I wanted to send you a belated note of thanks for the successful Brostrom procedure you performed on my ankle. About this time two years ago, I thought it was extremely unlikely that I would ever run again. Yesterday I completed the Marine Corp Marathon, and bettered my course time from a decade ago by nearly ten minutes. I cannot adequately convey how much running means to me, and I’m so grateful to have it in my life again, thanks to you!"

Dr. Ochiai,
"getting a second opinion from you was one of the best decision I made this year. Here I was self-employed and a young daughter keeping me on my toes. I had been experiencing pain in my hip. After having an MRI I was told surgery was needed to correct the problem and the recovery time would be 6 weeks without being able to drive, which is touch when you have a young child!

I’m thankful to my friend who is a doctor for recommending I get a second opinion. After she did some research you came highly recommended by several in the medical community. From the moment I walked into your office there was a level of professionalism with the staff. They also respected my time and I did not have a long wait in the reception area.

After looking at my MRI you were not as eager to have me undergo surgery and recommended I have a steroid shot in the area I was experiencing the pain. The previous orthopedic surgeon had given me a steroid shot but not in the correct area. Because of you I was able to enjoy my family in town for the holidays and get through the busy school year without severe pain in my hip.

I’m sure at some point I might need surgery but hopefully I can plan it. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Ochiai."
