Review of Dr. Lyons


My husband went to see Dr. Lyons because of issues and tremendous pain and discomfort with a recent knee replacement surgery. We found him to be very professional, knowledgeable and at the top of his field, especially in doing revision surgeries. It took a few months to get his surgery scheduled due to his very busy schedule, but it was well worth it. We feel, thus far, that we made an excellent choice and are very grateful to Dr. Lyons. He spent time with us and he explained what was needed to fix and stabilize his knee. The recovery is going much quicker this time and we are confident in a complete and satisfactory recovery this time.

Review of Dr. Mighell

- |

Simply the best! Referred from another doctor who could not fix the problem after a rotator cuff and shoulder replacement gone wrong. Dr Mighell is caring, and takes the time to fully explain his diagnosis and treatment. We travel the distance from Naples for his expertise and care.

Review of Dr. Donohue

- |

I had total hip replacement surgery with Dr. Donohue and I am very impressed by Dr D and the results. Although I am in my early seventies, I was able to walk without any support within 48 hours after surgery and had only minor discomfort. In addition to being a skilled surgeon, he has excellent people and communication skills. His nursing and admin support are also caring and highly competent.

Review of Dr. Lyons

I was very impressed by his office staff and Dr. Lyons. Dr. Lyons wasn’t pushy for me to have surgery, he left it up to me. He wasn’t rushed and answered any questions I had. I scheduled surgery.

Review of Dr. Weinstein

- |

Dr. Weinstein is very professional, extremely knowledgeable and a good listener. He was able to surgically fix my spine (my 3rd surgery, but 1st with him). He does his own diagnostic injections, which I think is very smart and helpful. My surgery was almost 3 years ago, but since then, I've been very active and relatively pain free. My spine held up even after a VERY hard fall from a horse (fractured & displaced collar bone, multiple ribs, partially collapsed lung). If/when my back fails again, I hope he is still available to help. (About me: Runner & equestrian, born 1972, scoliosis and transitional vertebrae.)

Review of Dr. Gasser

- |

As usual great experience. I am a retired physician and have has surgeries, injections and complete testing of my joints. I believe FOI has the edge in all of southeast United States . What many patients do not realize it is a teaching institute for international doctors and allied health care professionals. Their staff continues to grow with additions of outstanding doctors from across the states. Really no better place to go. Dr. Gasser is at the top of this wonderful staff.

Review of Dr. Garcia

Went for a second opinion for a total joint surgery. MRI didn’t get forwarded from my Orthopedic office as requested, so cancelled the appointment; but got billed anyhow (for phantom visit, joint drainage, and cortisone injection). Called billing office to protest bill, was assured it would be cancelled, but then got a bill from a collection agency.. I have to get proof, so called back to office, they sent email with attachment I couldn’t open. I had to call back to Florida Orthopedic to call
