Patient reviews for Dr. Peter Borden
All staff, from the receptionist, to the x-ray technician, to the physician's assistant, to Dr. Border himself, were very friendly, efficient and expedient.
My original appointment was later in the afternoon but I received a call letting me know that I could come in earlier. Perfect for me and when I arrived I filled out some paper work waited just a few minutes and went in for a x ray. Minutes later Dr. Borden came in and we chatted about my situation and how to remedy it. I felt very satisfied with his comments and will be going on to the next appointment to start the process of healing my foot. Will follow up with comments as we go along.
He was honest about not being able to treat me and referred me to someone who could, I just wish I hadn’t waited over an hour in pain just to be told within 3 minutes of seeing the doctor that there was nothing he could do for me.
He knows what he is doing. Gave me great information and I know what to expect next.
Very impressed. I would recommend him to friends and family.
Caring, thorough and tells it like it is! Definitely recommend him! In fact my wife also sees him and feels the same.
Very knowledgeable; gets straight to the point and explains things in a way that’s easy to understand. I’ve been to a few doctors for chronic pain in my wrist, and other doctors haven’t helped or really diagnosed it. He almost immediately was able to tell it was tendinitis. Wish he’d given me more options for treatment/referral to someone else who could help, but I do appreciate that he was able to tell me what was going on.
He was amazing, He was so bright, compassionate, and made me feel secure that I was well taken care of,
Everyone was very nice and apologetic about the wait. Dr. Borden was very thorough and clear in his explanations. Will continue treatment with him.
Everyone in office is very sweet! The xray man was super sweet and the doc was extremely nice and did not rush me. He helped me and most importantly he listened. They move very efficiently there.
Very good doctor.
He is very professional and very knowledgeable. The staff was very nice too and I only waited about 15 minutes.
Dr. Borden and the staff were very kind, friendly, and attentive. Dr. Borden took time to listen to my concerns, investigate my issue, and offer his preliminary diagnosis. He explained the diagnosis in easily understandable terms and gave me the information and next steps needed to address the issue. There was a problem with the X-ray machine which delayed my consultation but it does not appear to be a recurring problem.
Very nice man. Turns out he does not do hip replacements, so the appointment was a bit of a waste. He did recommend I see a younger doctor for the replacement, since I would be good if I require a revision in the future. He recommended a colleague of his.
Dr Borden was prompt and effective. His staff was extremely well organized. I have never had a shorter wait to see a Dr, especially one with such prominent recognition of his expertise.
Honestly, I could not have asked for a better doctor. He was kind, professional and above all, honest. I was nervous to go and he put me completely at ease. I wasn't sure if I would need surgery and if I did, if I would go through with it. After meeting with Dr. Borden, I would absolutely trust him with my life, and definitely my knees! Thankyou so much.
Comprehensive short and to the point
The office staff was friendly, fast and fun. Dr. Borden saw me right away, got down to the problem and I look forward to my next appointment.
Peter Bordon is the man .... in surgery, dealing with patients, and all aspects of his practice.
The Staff are friendly and have positive attitude. The gentleman who does your Xrays is very personable and caring. Thanks Zocdoc for your service! Doug G
My appt. was available right for the next day I booked. Staff there were awesome. Especially the xray tech. Don't remember his name but very friendly he makes you feel welcome. And Dr.Borden very good Doctor I would recommend
Excellent physician. Staff is A+ too.
Dr. Borden is a True professional. He asked the questions that were needed, reviewed the information that was available, completed and exam, and then recommended a course of action. He always takes incredibly good care of our entire family and we trust him to the MAX
Dr. Borden is the BEST! He always takes good care of me and my family.
Dr. Borden is up front and lets you know exactly what options you have. Also kind and compassionate and answers all your questions. I would highly recommend him.
This was a satellite office but I received really good care and attention and never felt like a number. The staff was kind and professional and the doctor was very friendly and ordered appropriate x-rays after our discussion and provided a qualified diagnosis on a professional level. I was pleased with his concern and care offered and would recommend him to others seeking medical care without any reservation.
Peter Borden MD is an awesome doctor/surgeon. Straight forward and knowledgeable. His offices are in a lovely building in Torrance.
Dr.Borden was very caring and personable. He examined my arm and encouraged me to stretch the muscle while assuring me that I wouldn't break a bone. Lol He was friendly, gave me a few options, set me up with his secretary, and ensured my next appointment was scheduled. Great visit!
I wish the doctor will spend a little more time to explain the treatment being recommended, the pros and the cons of doing it. He just suggested for me to read on it.
Fine visit. Dr. Borden is very knowledgeable.
Doctor was running a little late but when he arrived he began seeing patients very efficiently without making them feel rushed. Seems cool too.
I am sad to say I was very disappointed. Although I was thrilled to get a Monday morning appointment when I found the site last Thursday, when I showed up at my appointed time on Monday morning I was forced to handwrite all of the forms again, that I had already completed online last week. Although the hour a half wait for the doctor is pretty par for the course these days, the doctor spent little time with me, said I needed a specific device (brace) for my “tennis elbow” on my arm used in a specific way and that the assistant would put it on for me. I was then to come back in three weeks. They did not have a device that was either functional or that fit me. (I am of normal size and weight). Once this was determined the assistant said, “OK, so we will see you in three weeks?” I said, “Really, what would be the purpose of that since I can’t even do what the doctor wants me to do for the next three week because you are not able to provide me with the brace he wants me to wear?” So I would love to say it was a great experience, instead it was clearly a waste of my time and money.
It was great! Really listened to hat I was saying and was very thorough.
Everything worked great except the fact that the ZocDoc information i had entered prior to the visit did not go through and had to fill in the information by hand at the clinic.
Dr. Borden was very personable and knowledgeable in regards to my son's knee pain. He gave us great information as to what could be wrong with my son's knee and a good plan to help it heal. I will definitely suggest Dr. Borden's expertise to other people.
very professional and great office help. recommend very highly.
It was my first time seeing Dr. Borden. He was very professional and friendly, as was his staff.
Great experience will definately be going back I would recommend him to anyone with orthopedic problems.
I broke my hand while on vacation. I went to the ER, out of state, had X-rays made and discovered the fracture in my hand. They put my hand in an emergency wrap so that I could make it back home safely. I made an appointment through Zocdoc with Dr. Borden for exactly one week later. The receptionist called to confirm my slot the morning of and even jumped through hoops with the hospital to get my x-rays in advance. Their attempts were unsuccessful, but as soon as I got there they x-rayed my hand after a 10 minute wait and the doctor spoke with me five minutes later. At first he was going to put me in a split, but then he took a second look and said, "I actually want you to go to a hand specialists...I'm an expert and knees and shoulders and this is just so close to your joint that I don't want to risk it. I'm sending you to a friend of mine and we're going to squeeze you in right now." That man is awesome and saved me from a lifetime of pain. I ended up getting surgery. If he hadn't been honest and a good decision maker, then I would be giving an opposite review. He's a keeper!
Dr. Borden is as good as they come, he's caring, thorough, and intelligent. The staff were efficient and professional.
Fantastic! Personable, knowledgible, caring, .
Friendly, I'll know more after next visit.
Dr. Borden addressed all of my concerns and did a great job of explaining exactly what he thought was going on and his recommended options for my injury. Having spent 15 years working in an orthopedic surgery center many years ago, I knew what to look and listen for during my visit with him--and was very impressed.
Very caring direct and Dr Borden wants you to fallow up with your appointment quickly. If I do have to have Surgery, I fill that I am in good hands. Thank you zodoc.com for your web site! (Cheers)
I am optimistic and happy to be getting started with him. We have a plan! He came highly recommended from a neighbor so although I have spent a scant 15 minutes with him I am very confident I will be pleased to be working with him.
