Dr. Carreira is very knowledgeable, and caring. He repaired my oldest daughter's hip when she was 11 years old, and having immense pain; she recovered completely and now plays D2 college volleyball with no hip trouble. I have recommended Dr. Carreira to volleyball teammates who had similar success with their surgery. The office staff at Peachtree Orthooaedics are very helpful and professional. You never look forward to a doctor visit, but they made the trip there very easy.

Dr. Carriera is an excellent surgeon! He has a way of explaining exactly what needs to be done and gives you a chance to ask anything about what to expect. His staff, Sarah and Marta, are awesome. I am so excited and pleased with my results. My hip is next...not in too much hurry 'tho! POC rocks!! ( and Dr. Carriera is "easy on the eyes"! )

Dr. Carreira was very professional, personable and took the time to answer all of my questions. I’ve only seen him once so far but he will now be my go-to doctor for orthopedics.

Dr. Carreria did hip arthroscopy to fix my labrum tear in 2013, 6 years ago. To this day, I am extremely thankful to have been under his care. The surgery has allowed me to be pain free all these years! He has moved his practice from Florida to Georgia but if I ever need a future surgery I will travel to see him without a doubt. His attention to detail on every aspect of the process was nothing short of amazing. Before, during and after the surgery, I knew what to expect.

The doctors here are fabulous. They explain everything so that you can understand it. Have had to have two surgeries one with Dr Reddy and one with Dr Carreira and they were awesome. The nursing staff is also wonderful and very responsive.

I would not recommend this doctor. He was dismissive and surly. Terrible listener. Could not be bothered to answer any questions. Very disheartening experience.

Very thorough, great bedside manner, I would send my family and friends to him without any hesitation. I felt that I understood everything I needed to do to get better after each visit. Although I had great difficulty getting an initial appointment, I am glad I persisted until I got one.

Dr. Carreira has been excellent so far. He listens and explains his findings in plain English. We are still trying to fully diagnose my issues and I appreciate his dedication to getting to the bottom of my pain before suggesting treatment.
