Review of Dr. Hinson

-, |

Dr Hinson was absolutely excellent! He answered all of my and my wife’s questions and performed posterior labral repair on my shoulder flawlessly. After the surgery, I was in excruciating pain, called in the middle of the night to the office and left a message, he called me an hour later to see what was wrong. I had better pain medicine the next day! I could not recommend a better Shoulder surgeon in the Palm Beach area, I couldn’t see how anyone could have an issue with him?

Review of Dr. Kearse


For the second time, the southern boulevard office staff has been a complete disappointment. I made an appt to receive my cortisone shot on my arthritic right hand with Dr Kearse for 11 am. I was happy to get an appointment since the pain had started up again & I was leaving the next day to attend a wedding up north. My appt was confirmed the Friday before. When I came to the office at 10:40, I was then informed that my referral had expired. I was told to get another referral, that referrals took about 3 days to obtain and to comeback another day. I immediately called my primary doctor, and was able to get a referral approved immediately. I came back in & informed his staff that a referral was immediately being faxed. It was 11:05 am.They told me that they could not wait for the referral, said it was too late, my appt was cancelled & that I could return another day. I was not late, never informed referral was expired before & sent away in pain. Dr Kearse is great but staff is horrid

Review of Dr. Norris


The staff are efficient but Dr Norris is very short on answers. He was reviewing my MRI results and I asked what he was seeing and he snapped back at me, “Let me read them first!” He was reviewing films and a 3 1/2 page report. Observing him he barely looked at the films. Then said you have arthritis. I said that’s all? Yes was his answer. So I waited for a further explanation. None came. It felt like I was pulling teeth to get ANY answer out of him! Definitely not a thorough dr!

Review of Dr. Kearse

- in Palm City |

Dr Kearse is has been a wonderful resource for me. He has helped me overcome some of aging processes that had begun to affect my daily abilities. I originally saw him a few years ago with hand issues that he directed me to a neck specialist. Then he treated me for trigger finger release, eventually doing a successful surgery with awesome results. Now treating some arthritis hand and elbow issues. I am grateful that I found him. Extremely caring and considerate. 10 stars for Justin & staff

Review of Dr. Kearse

- in West Palm Beach, FL |

I have been seeing Dr. Kearse for many years for many ailments from tendonitis, strains, tendon tears, shoulder issues and pitched nerves. I have always received excellent care. My recovery times have been better than expected. He is also very personable and genuinely caring.

Review of Dr. Norris

- in Palm Beach Gardens, FL |

Dr Norris is an excellent clinician. He takes a conservative approach to diagnoses but once it is made he is even better at resolving the issue fully. Dr Norris has a great bedside manner with a dry wit that I personally appreciate

Review of Dr. Norris

- in West Palm Beach |

Dr. Norris did my right knee replacement. Another physician did my left. The experience with my right knee was night/ day over the physical who did the left. Dr. Norris is very thorough, cares about his patients.
