The worst, most unprofessional drunk of a doctor in bakersfield..stay away if at all possible!! He almost killed my mother after a hip replacement and subsequent 5 or 6 (lost count) unsuccessful surgeries to fix his initial crooked implant in her hip.. less than 1 week after 1st surgery, her femur snapped while walking across living room as instructed by physicAL therapists..dr.tivinon was a coward when addressing medical issues and complications with family, sending in his assistant surgeon to speak w/ us and avoidng contact at all costs..when we finally did corner him and we're able to talk with him, he was more concered with his sons then, up and coming wedding than he was my mother's blood clots, 10 day hopitalization with a dislocated hip, and infection..finally he quit and abandoned her as her doctor after about 6 weeks of useless treatment, and life altering and a permanently disfiguring disability..that leg is roughly 2 to 3 inches shorter than the other..she has a severe limp for life, depression and pain still 3 years later..this doctor is a total hack and more concerned with happy hour, than happy patients..terrifying! !

Horrible doctor. No bed side manner. Yelled and cussed in front of my children and refused to give us my daughter's MRI results. Payed no attention to her pain. Has fractured foot and was referred to PT?! Completely rude and staff gave no recognition to my complaint of his vulgar language and behavior.
