Great experience on for a proximal hamstring repair
in Fort Lauderdale, FL |
All aspects of Dr. Carreira's practice were fantastic. The office was clean, the staff was quick and attentive, and most importantly, the surgery that Dr. Carreira performed went so much better than I would have ever expected.
New York, NY |
This is the second place I wrote on and I never have done this . Run don't walk... He has to be the most self centered doctors with the worst bed side manner I have ever come across. He is treating my son and dealing with him and his staff has been nothing short of a nightmare. He has what I call a true god complex. He performed surgery on my son and just made this situation so much worse. Thought I would let me people know .
