"Dr Moorthy is very professional with excellent attention to detail. In 2020 he corrected a toe injury with optimum results. I have asked him to repair a bunion and hammer toe issue on the opposite foot. His consultation on the matter was clear and concise. I highly recommend Dr Moorthy and Golden State for your orthopedic needs. In 2008 I had Golden State repair a shoulder injury and continue to enjoy success."

"Doctor Moorthy has been my doctor for 15 years. I have had 2 ankle surgeries during this time, as well as cortisone shots. I have nothing but the greatest respect for him as a doctor & surgeon. He is very caring, informative and explains everything so that you understand. Most recent was an ankle replacement and have had extremely little pain. Why would I consider anyone else."

"Dr. Moorthy saw my daughter for a gymnastics injury. He was patient, on time and explained all the possible reasons my child’s hand was hurting. He followed up quickly with x-rays and ultrasound in the same office. His PA Alyssa is a gem. I highly recommend Dr Moorthy and would happily see him again. "

"I had a partial ankle reconstruction with Dr. Moorthy. He was recommended by my primary and I can see why. The surgery was my most successful to date by far (I have had three surgeries total now for other issues so I can compare) I would not hesitate to return. His PA Alyssa Bernat is also great."

"I was seen by Dr. Morali Moorthy in walnut creek Orthopedic specialists clinic in regards to my ankle . I regret every minute that i was in that room with him , he was in such a hurry and anxious to leave that I didn't achieve any resolution from that short time he spend with me ,he was very disrespectful, hyperactive with a disruptive behavior. He entered the room without introducing himself or any customary etiquette and left the same way , i guess obtaining a medical degree and being cultivated not necessarily brings out the moral principles of life out of you. Please try not to be seen by him as you will regret it just like me . Thank you for reading my feedback."
