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. Armaghani

- in Trinity, FL |

Dr Armaghani is absolutely one of the most caring, knowledgeable, and professional back surgeons. He answers any questions you may have, tells you exactly what the problem is, thoroughly explains it and what needs to be done, and any and all the possible side affects. He did surgery on my back in April, and I am now feeling so much better and no longer suffer with pain. The surgery corrected my problem, and I feel so truly blessed that I found this amazing, caring doctor. I highly recommend Dr. A, and promise you will be very pleased as well.

Review of Dr. Miranda

- |

Dr. Miranda replaced my right knee in April and I am feeling better than ever. No limp, no pain and back to golfing, walking, chasing after the grandkids. I expected great results since my hip replacement 16 months ago was also very successful. Dr. Miranda is a very skilled surgeon who is up on the latest advances in joint replacement.

Review of Dr. Maxson

- |

Zero bedside manner, never saw him post operation AT ALL. Then they figured how to miss my scheduled 2nd follow up (likely with his assistant again) and thought it would be okay to wait for two hours in the lobby as several patients that came in after me were taken in. Have questions about limited mobility, aches and clicking in the area of my surgery like when cracking your knuckles. Going to see another DOCTOR with a great reputation and a wealth of experience, hope all is well especially for their sake as a friend of mine which is a doctor is wondering if the type of surgery that was performed on me was the right call.

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. Epting

- |

Dr. Epting and the entire support staff were friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, and professional! Dr. Epting made me feel totally at ease and explained my foot problem in layman terms; used my foot x-rays to ensure I fully understood my problem; and explained short and long term solutions. He and his support staff emphasized to call them if I had any further questions. This was an extremely pleasurable patient experience. Florida Orthopedic Institute sets the standard for patient care. I highly recommend Dr. Epting and Florida Orthopedic Institute.
