Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Springer "At Orthopedic Specialists of SW Florida, our practice philosophy is to treat early with noninvasive, conservative treatments for degenerative conditions. Our goal is to reduce pain and improve function. We have found that for a majority of patients, conservative treatment can relieve pain and improve function without surgery. However, each patient's care is determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on the patient's age, level of activity, general health and the type of injury or problem. Our goal to help our patients regain a pain-free, active lifestyle."

On time, efficient, professional, thoughtful, skillful, informative -- all the attributes that you want from your physician.

There are no words to express how thankful I am. My surgery and rehab went beyond expectations. Dr. Springer and his staff (office, rehab, and surgical team) are AMAZING. Each time I was at the office, rehab, or the surgery center, the staff made me feel as if I was the only patient there! Thank you for your knowledge and making such a difference. I am now able to ride my bike!!

First you have to wait, the last two times over 2 hours, and then you see the PA. When asked if PA could give shot and I said no, the doctor seemed miffed that he had to do it. Dr. Springer spends less than 5 minutes with you. Everything is done by the PA. I went to this Doctor because is is supposed to be good, I have no idea how good the PA is. On my last visit, the doctor, told me he didn't know what was wrong but could go in and clean out my knee!! Yeah let's operate.
Thank you for taking a moment to share your feedback! Here at Orthopedic Specialists of SW Florida, we want every patient to have an exceptional experience, and we take any dissatisfaction very seriously. Individuals with issues or concerns are advised to contact us immediately at (239) 461-6389 so we can work to resolve the problem.

As always in the past, I am very pleased with the Medical care that I receive from Dr. Springer and his Assistant! However, I was not pleased with arriving at the facility at 12:00, as scheduled, and not being taken to the examine room until 1:45. I realize that we are now "In Season", and there may have been emergencies, but I think it would certainly be a well appreciated courtsey if patients could be called by phone ahead of their appointment to let them know their would be at lease an hour l
