I had surgery with Dr Grant Shifflett April 4th 2018 and I had to write a review regarding him not only as a surgeon, but the best orthopedic surgeon in Newport Beach and Marina Del Rey. I have been treated at both facilities and I can say I am beyond pleased. I have had other surgeries in Newport Beach by an orthopedic and it was not a good experience. Dr Shifflett is professional, takes his time with you and will do anything to make sure you fully understand what's going on with you. Dr Shifflett is the only surgeon I would go to in all of Newport Beach. This is my first time ever writing a review for a doctor because I feel blessed I met him since I was screwed up by someone else here in Newport. If you are lucky enough to get into dr shifflett, I say run do not walk you cannot get a better doctor. Thank you Dr Shifflett

Dr Grant Shifflett is the most courteous,caring,honest surgeon I've ever met. I trusted his experience, professionalism and decided to have him perform on me a lumbar bilateral laminectomy at his surgery center in Newport Beach, on August 23rd 2018. Amazing staff and location. Top of the line facility. I highly recommend him to anybody who need surgery. I also want to thank Blake Richard who coordinated the entire process perfectly. Merci !

Professional and confident doctor in my book with excellent bed side manners which in my books goes a long way with doctors. I reached out to get 2nd and 3rd opinion about my surgery, all agreed with same conclusion, for the neck infusion. I chose Dr Shifflett, because he came highly recommended and so thankful I went with him. During the discussions about my surgery he spent time explaining exactly what was needed and why I needed the neck surgery. He answering all my list of questions without rushing me out of his office and without interruptions. Day before surgery, he squeezed me into his busy schedule at the office to discuss the surgery and his plan for the surgery. I explained to Dr Shifflett my fears and that I felt my life was in his hands. When I left his office that afternoon, I felt safe. The morning of the surgery when he came to see me, I had NO fear at all, I trusted I had made the best decision in my choice of doctors. I felt his knowledge, experience, kindness and passion that I was in good hands.After the surgery, he was always a phone call or text away. The hospital staff @ Marina Del Rey Hospital, was EXCELLENT. Recovery of my surgery has been long, due solely to the surgery itself. I have almost full movement of my neck, NO ugly scar, almost unable to see the scar at all. Only used pain bills once or twice when I got home. Hardest part is and was sitting still, relaxing, adjusting to the neck brace which allows the neck to heal from inside out.I highly recommend Dr Grant Shifflett and his team, they are a team of professionalism, expertise, knowledge and kindness.Thank you again, Dr Grant Shifflett and your teamDana Bradarich

What an amazingly talented doctor! It’s been 9 months since my cervical disc replacement surgery so it’s a good time to write a review.I started having numbness in my left arm in March 2019. Unlucky for me, we were under COVID lock-down in California so many doctors’ offices were either closed or operated limited hours. I didn’t even know what type of doctor to see. So I searched on line and found out my symptoms matched that of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), a disease that has no cure.I called a couple of neurologists and the appointments were months out. I don’t remember how I found DISC sports center but I remember the conversation I had with the receptionist. She thought I was crazy calling the office not knowing who I wanted to see. But after I described my symptoms, she firmed said I need to see Dr. Grant Shifflett. I was given an on-line appointment within a week. Dr. Shifflett made me feel at ease right away. He’s professional, knowledgeable, and he carefully listened to my symptoms and family history. He explained the possible causes and ordered a number of tests. The first test was an EMG/Nerve Conduction Test. In this test a nerve is given a small impulse and the conduction alone the nerve is recorded. The test quickly ruled out ALS. Such a relief to know I’m not dying, LOL. I then took a series of imaging tests. The last one was an MRI which revealed the damaged cervical discs that caused nerve compression. Dr. Shifflett explained to me that my condition required surgery. Within a week of the diagnostic, the office scheduled me for disc replacement surgery. The surgery was done in the same building as their office. It took about two hours. I was scared going in but it went very smooth. When I woke up in the recovery room, the numbness in my arm was gone, like a miracle. It was so wonderful to feel whole again. I won’t go into length about the recovery but I do want to point out that the office called a few times after my discharge checking on my condition, which I thought was so nice. Dr. Shifflett and his team are such wonderful people to work with. I was treated with a great sense of importance and urgency. On one of my office visits, I ran into people who traveled 2+ hours to see Dr. Shifflett, which made me feel extremely lucky to have such renowned doctor in the close proximity. I will definitely recommend Dr. Shifflett for people who need spine and disc surgery.

Dr Shifflett did a superb job with surgery for herniated disk surgery in my lower back. He really cares about patients. I was referred to him by my internist. I am out of pain, from the moment I awoke from surgery. Great experience.
