Review of Dr. Pedro-Alexander

-Royal Palm Beach, FL |

I've never been treated rudely by a doctor. But this doctor was just plain rude. I was astonished. I never met this woman before...

Review of Dr. Ortega

-Royal Palm Beach, FL |

Dr. Ortega has serious weight bias. He never touched my knee, looked at 1 x-ray and said my pain was 100% due to my weight even though I reported that I fell which caused the injury.

Review of Dr. Rochman


He has the best bedside manner and experience around! My daughter had multiple torn ligaments/scar tissue. He was able to repair the damage and she has a new lease on life. Thank you Dr. Rochman!!!

Review of Dr. Lins

- in Lake Worth |

I recently was referred to Dr. Robert Lin’s from one of my employees and I was seen and diagnose with a Sciatica Nerve Pain. I got great care from him and I would highly recommend him to anyone with PAIN. His staff are very pleasant and professional. I have no problem waiting as long as my PAIN goes away and he has done miracles . Thank You so much Dr. Robert Lin’s and Staff for being there For me. It was a caring moment for me and my family. I will continue to follow Doctor Lin’s and staff.??

Review of Dr. Waeltz


The first visit with Dr. Waeltz was very impressive. He was personable and informative. I have trigger finger so my choices were injection or surgery. I took the injection and asked about surgery for non-insurance. NOW that I'm ready to have the surgery, he has gone back on what he said. I will not use him because he did not keep his word. Also, Dee, with whom I left 2 voice mails DID NOT call back . 13 days later, I called a third time to finally get a live person. I DON'T recommend them

Review of Dr. Simpson


Dr. Simpson is the best! He explained everything that would happen from the time I arrived at the surgical center, until the time I arrived back home. I was quite nervous going in, but after he explained everything, I trusted him 100%. He was always very nice, but most important, he is a very talented surgeon. I had my rotor cuff surgery 12/27/18, and finished with therapy at the beginning of March 2019. I feel great!! Thank you Dr. Simpson!

Review of Dr. Lins

-Boynton Beach, FL |

I have never seen a more poorly run office than this one, and I've been to dozens of doctors in my life. I wonder if their doctors know how bad they and their staff are. Dr. Lins gave me some serious wrong information, sending me to a hospital about 65 miles away for nothing. Then he and his office manager refused to reimburse me for the over $100 in taxi fees I spent. I also had problems with 2 other doctors at this office. Stay away from Dr. Lins and this office.

Review of Dr. Sama

- in Wellington, FL |

EXCELLENT is an understatement when describing Dr. Sama and his staff! Several years ago, my elderly Mom shattered her femur. Dr. Sama and Joe, his PA expertly pieced her back together. They are the sole reason that she was able to continue to live independently at 93! Recently, she fell again, this time breaking her wrist. Once again, we received wonderful care. I also receive treatment for knee osteoarthritis. BEST MEDICAL CARE, CARING, PROMPT... No room here to adequately describe him!

Review of Dr. Simpson


His main concern is about getting paid and not patient care. He's not very nice to his staff which tells alot about someone.

Review of Dr. Ortega


Dr. Ortega was so quick to send me out of the room. I’ve been in pain for a while and he told me it wasn’t a ligament, so I was good. I went to a different doctor and it turns out I have a torn meniscus. I felt like a number. I had so many questions and he didn’t care to answer any of them. I was also over charged by $100 and getting that fixed took a long time because they kept telling me to call back.
