Review of Dr. Reach Jr

- in Fort Myers, FL |

December 20, 2010, Dr. Reach performed a Total Ankle Replacement, installing a STAR. I was 64 at the time and had a history of problems with my left ankle, which manifested itself in August, 2009, when I developed septic arthritis in the ankle. I resumed playing golf in May 2010, and today play 4/5 times weekly in Florida where I now live. I referred Dr. Reach to two other golfing friends, who like me have their former life back. Put me on top of the list of those who thank Dr. Reach ! Bravo !

Review of Dr. Pelker


he prescribed a toxic dose of naproxen which ruined my hearing in a day and a half. I was an idiot to go to him. Now I have the same orthopedic complaint and damaged hearing. Naproxen is dangerous, and he prescribed it without any warnings or cautions. Now I know why it was so easy to get an appointment while most orthopedists have a month or more waiting list.

Review of Dr. Walls

- in Bethany |

Dr. Walls performed surgery on my ruptured achilles tendon. He did an excellent job and I am completely recovered. He is a doctor who truly listens to you and really cares about you and your concerns. He will answer hundreds of questions patiently. Dr. Walls was highly recommended to me and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs his services.

Review of Dr. Dodds

- in Tamarac, FL |

For 12 years I suffered with an extreme break of my ulna in my left arm. It was plated, but the plate would deterioate every 3 to 4 years and would have to be replaced for stability of the bone. I was referred to the Univ of Miami where I saw Dr Dodds. After seeing my X-rays, he said he could fix me. He did a bone transplant with bone from my wrist almost two years ago. On my one year post surgical visit my bone has regenerated 89%. Dr Dodds is my hero. An amazing doctor and very humble.

Review of Dr. Walls


I am extremely satisfied with my foot surgery performed by Dr. Walls. I have severely deformed feet, with extremely high arches, with pain everyday. I am a college athlete, so although playing was not my first priority, Dr. Walls made it one. My surgery was extremely long and difficult and he did an amazing job. I had a great recovery and I am very thankful to be pain free and able to play my sport again. I would highly recommend Dr. Walls to anyone with a foot problem!

Review of Dr. Walls

- |

My husband had several ankle surgeries due to a serious fall. Dr. Walls was the only one who made his ankle fuse therefore helping him to walk again with no pain. His expertise and genuine caring of the patient is highly acknowledged. I would recommend this knowledgeable, kind and genuine doctor who is not afraid to consult with other colleagues in order to give the best outcome to the patient. He has made my husband have quality of life again,

Review of Dr. Walls

- in Bridgeport, CT |

Dr. Walls is a very kind and knowledgeable physician who took the time to explain the physiology of my orthopedic condition and answer all the question I had without making me feel like I was taking up his time.

Review of Dr. Reach Jr

- |

I should first start off my saying that Dr. Reach seems to be a very good doctor. My mom was a patient of Dr. Reach, but when she had a very urgent and serious issue come up, he was “unreachable”. His office left us hanging. They told us the wrong place to deliver her records, and then completely lost them before even giving them to the doctor. I have never seen such chaos and disorganization with a medical staff before, or have been treated so rudely by.
