Working with doctors and in healthcare all my life, it was harrowing to have a knee injury that required attention. I was made to feel comfortable by every one of the staff. The doctor was very warm, humble, genuine, and thorough in explaining all options. After all tests, I needed surgery, -I did not hesitate to trust Dr. Ceballos. That is rare for me. I can tell you that great doctors are rare-those that truly take time to care for their patients and oath. Dr. Ceballos is the epitome of this

I have been a patient of this office for a few years and still think Dr. Ceballos is great. I am not impressed with the office staff lately. Earlier in the year doc ordered it for each leg. The office only ordered 1. I had to make a few calls to get them to order the second one. The doctor prescribed it again. Now-almost a week later, it still isn't in the system. I was told the person handing it wasn't in the office and I'd get a call back. Nobody did. I need to call yet again.

1. Had to wait over 2 hours past scheduled appointment time. 2. Doctor only have me 3 or 4 minutes of his time, completely rushed, cut me off every time I tried to tell hm the reasons I was there, already decided what I needed before listening 3. The x-ray tech asked me to remove some clothing for the x-ray and to cover up with a sheet. When I looked the sheet was DISGUSTING. It was stained with urine or something worse and I told him Is that clean? He responded uhhhh... my bad yeah my bad
Miami, FL |
In high school I was told that I tore my ACL 100% through. I had surgery through Ceballos, as recommended from my trainer. Not even a year later, I tore my ACL in the same knee again. Finding it off that Ceballos had refused to release me once I hit six months, we had a very bad taste in our mouth. I later had surgery with another surgeon, to find out that the damage ceballos had done to my knee was awful. The cadaver I was given was too small and I had many issues. I DO NOT recommend.
