Dr. Maxson is a wonderfully kind, compassionate & skilled surgeon. I am so thankful he was the surgeon who “put me back together”after a difficult tibia plateau fracture. I couldn’t have had better care.

I had maxson for a surgeon to do a knee repair. He took a hour to arrive for a scheduled surgery. He comes in to the surgery prep room and then tells me he's ready to go. I asked why we were getting underway so late. He stated that he drives to bradenton from tampa. Then I found he is on a rotation...more

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize that you experienced a delay before your surgery. Because our physicians are sub-specialty trained and provide on-call services at many local hospitals, it is possible that they may be called for emergency surgery at any time. This expertise allows us to provide a level of care that cannot be attained elsewhere. Again, we apologize for the delay you experienced but we assure you that you are in the best hands of care!

Twice he left our 95 year old mother waiting, in a wheelchair, in a freezing cold office in Bradenton. The first time he never called to update us on his arrival and the 2nd time after two and one half hours his office said they lost her xrays.
