Review of Dr. Donovan

-New Port Richey, FL |

I found Dr. Donovan to be abrupt and autocratic. I had two surgeries by this doctor and after the second surgery he never even came to see me or my family member post surgery to tell me how what he found and how things went. I would not use him again nor would I recommend him.

Review of Dr. Donovan

- in none |

Very disappointed w Dr Donovan. No bedside manner, didn't listen to my worries about shoulder pain. Came in, gave me a shot of whatever in disappointed& told me to go for p.t. upstairs. Follow-up visit was worse than 1st visit. I told him shot didn't work. He told me it had to have worked due to medicine in shot. I said im sorry that shot didn't work!! He then told me i needed surgery. I stated I could not be off work 6 wks as im a hairdresser. He got up & stated, call me when u want the surgery

Review of Dr. Cook

- in Dunedin, FL |

Dr Cook has been my Dr since the 1 st day she started in this practice. She has also done 4 different joint replacements on me. They all have been successful beyond our wildest dreams! She is extremely knowledgeable & professional. I would highly recommend Dr Cook to any one & everyone in our family go to her!

Review of Dr. Hanff

- in Holiday, FL |

Dr. Hanff did my husband's bilateral hip replacement. Seeing my husband's confidence in his surgeon was comforting. After meeting Dr. Hanff at an informal question and answer event I came away with my own feelings of confidence. He is not just a great surgeon he is a gifted healer.

Review of Dr. Donovan

This excellent doctor treated my 88 year old mother like she was the most important patient he ever saw. His bedside manner is flawless and he genuinely cares about his patients. My mother also cannot say enough about how much she appreciates him. (She also thinks he is very handsome.)

Review of Dr. Mates

- in Odessa |

I had bunion surgery 30 years ago. So when the bunions came back, I knew surgery was the answer. Dr. Mates was recommended by a friend of ours who also worked for Dr. Mates. He is OUTSTANDING! He is an active listener who is thoroughly prepared. As a patient, you feel as if you are in competent hands. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mates!

Review of Dr. Mates

- in Holiday, FL |

I went to see Dr. Mates after two years of being told my painful feet could not be fixed. After x-rays, Dr. Mates said he could fix them and he fixed my left foot so well I have no more pain. I will do the other foot in a few months. Thanks to him for a job well done.

Review of Dr. Mates

- in Dunedin, FL |

Dr Mates put me at ease about my horrible injury the night before surgery. He assured me that he will put my broken femur together and will work with me closely on the road to recovery. He is thorough, extremely caring, answers all my questions at every appointment, spends quality time with patients and as long as needed. I am extremely thankful to have Dr.Mates by my side, I feel I am truly in the most capable hands! Please look no further!!

My husband and myself are more than pleased with Dr. Mates. He will be our family Orthopedic Dr. for years to come. He takes great care of his patients, listens to our concerns. Gives promises that he keeps. One of the best Dr's I've ever had the privilege of knowing and receiving care from.
