    Good Experience
    Mar 10, 2022
    Dr. Bini replaced my right hip about 5 years ago and made a huge positive difference in my life. This visit was extremely helpful to me in his reviewing my experience after a fall. I would recommend him whole heartedly to anyone who has hip problems.

    Dr. Bini is an excellent Orthopaedic surgeon. I am 65 and seen many doctors. He is the best in his field and on top of that he is extremely friendly. I have praised him many times when I talked to my family and friends.He is number 1 in my book.

    The doctor was able to check out his thoughts with x-rays. He thought I was there for surgery and I did feel a bit " rushed" to make a decision because he was going to have the person ( whoever that might be) look at the surgery schedule but since she's not there this didn't occur.

    I had a knee replacement a little over a month ago and this was my follow up visit with Dr. Bini. During that month staff was uniformly helpful and responsive. At this visit Dr. Bini was attentive encouraging and answered my questions. He and his staff are exceptional.

    Great team

    The provider was suddenly asked to see the next patient before all of my questions could be addressed.
    Jun 09, 2021
    I cannot put into words how thankful I am for Dr Bini and the staff for being able to do there jobs and show me so very much respect. I will forever be grateful for all they done for me and my family I was treated as a king !!!

    Provider felt aloof rushed. Maybe it was my state of mind

    I am guessing that the doctor may have been up all night with a previous case. Poor guy looked very tired and apologized for yawning in the middle of the appointment. But the doctor's reputation is excellent and the news he gave me about my knee was valuable but not knowing much about knees I was disappointed that there is no repair for a meniscus tear. Just the way it goes I guess. I thought he might be more helpful in offering recommendations as to what I could best do to exercise without causing any further trauma to my knee. But he was specific in what I could do and not do in general. Best news I suppose is that surgery would not really help my problem.

    Dr. Bini was fantastic.
    Apr 07, 2021
    He knows I am unhappy with my progress after 90 days. Told me it will take 2 years and to be patient. If recovery was to take this long I should have been informed BEFORE the surgery not after. Or this should have been discussed with me before leaving the hospital at surgery. Disappointed that no expectations for recovery were discussed.

    As I said previously I recommend Dr. Bini to my daughter and to any friends with hip problems. My daughter already has had a consultation with him and had very good comments about him.

    Fine assitance.

    Dr. Bini was very clear as to why I was experiencing pain in the knee where the replacement took place. He took the time to clearly explain the xray and the relationship that had on what he was proposing to ease the pain. More importantly he was clear about my concern as to pain in the right knee. He did not rush to operate but made it clear and comforting as to what I could do immediately and long term. It was comforting to hear a doctor not immediately suggest surgery. Dr. Bini is an excellent provider who clearly values the importance of patient care.

    the doctor listens and tells you everything about the problem you have

    I made an appointment with dr. Bini because I understood him to offer opinions regarding surgical approach to hip replacement. he carefully explained my options but seemed to prefer the option other than the one I thought he could provide. he was honest and cafe full to explaine each surgical approach. he would give me names of surgeons who used the surgical approach I was interested in. however I came to UCSF because of insurance coverage and his expertise.

    It is hard to answer these questions about the "provider" because I saw the doctor/clinical professor but the resident did some of the surgery. I don't know where the line is between professor and student/resident
    Dec 11, 2020
    the world could use more doctors like him !!!

    I am very pleased with the treatment and with the way in which this specialty visit and procedure was handled. It was way better than I expected.
    Oct 27, 2020
    the audio was quite staticky throughout the conversation and it was difficult to understand Dr. Bini as a result.
    Oct 27, 2020
    The provider quickly became impatient then angry regarding questions I had.
    Oct 08, 2020
    I am very grateful to Dr. S. Bini for the surgery (Right Hip Replacement) he performed. It has really changed my life for good.

    Dr Bini was conscientious sensitive and personable with what I deemed to be a high level of expertise. he was frank but kind and I trust him

    Excellent experience

    Very very professional
    Jul 19, 2020
    it's just hard to go from meeting a doctor for the first time no matter how good educational competent and personable they are to next seeing them masked up in an operating room ready to do major surgery. I'm just not sure who the team is in between the visit and surgery and how I interact with them.
    Jul 14, 2020
    I had a wonderful experience. Everyone was respectful and listened. Dr Bini was great. I would highly recommend him. I felt taken care of and he explained everything thoroughly and in an easy-to-understand way.

    The new protocol use of Zoom teleconferencing was new to me. In fact it was the first I ever used the app or procedure. It was relatively easy and was accomplished without any problems. This procedure saved me time and money from having to travel to San Francisco and limo rental.

    hard as appt was with zoom
