Dr. Constant took the time to evaluate my situation and decided that an mri was better for me than starting shots and he was so right… The Dr from the start said I believe this is the issue and requested the mri and he was so correct… Going forward the dr said just call me if you need me I am here for you. To me the Dr took his time to help me and I really appreciated that. He is a wonderful person and a great pain doctor.

Dr. Constant is not only skilled, he is compassionate, understanding and truly concerned about his patient's wellbeing. The first time I went to see Dr. Constant was back in 2012 at the recommendation of my neurosurgeon for headaches and neck pain after an auto accident. I had been pain free for many years because of dr. Constant's treatment which included occipital nerve block and trigger point injections. So years later, 2021, when i was having shooting nerve pain, and getting no relief in the treatment provided by my general practitioner, I went to see Dr. Constant. His concern was palpable, that i may have giant cell arteritis. He immediately had blood work ordered, phoned my general practitioner, as well as review MRI and confer with my neurosurgeon. I had more diagnostic testing as well as appt. with ENT at Dr. Constant's advice. I am so happy to say, i recieved all the appropriate treatments. And am now pain fre, happy and healthy. Thank you, Dr. Constant. I am forever grateful.

I've seen Dr. Constant several times for back and hip pain. He's administered two injections to my lower back with another to come for my hip. The treatment was very effective in significantly reducing my back pain. But besides the treatments, I've found Dr. Constant to be a caring professional who is very thorough in his exams and his explanations. I heartedly recommend him!

I met Dr. Constant almost one year ago. When I first met him I had been being treated for an apparent shoulder injury within Coastal Orthopedics. It was determined my shoulder symptoms were related to a neck injury and Dr. Constant took over my care. After tests were done it was determined that I have occipital neuralgia and some issues with my neck itself leaving me with a severe lessening of range of motion. Dr. Constant was extremely kind and always sure to walk me through information so I understand what was going on. We discussed a treatment plan and got to it. Thanks to my treatments and Dr. Constant's excellent care I now have regained full range of motion within my neck and shoulder. We are still treating some of my other symptoms, but I have come so far thanks to his wonderful care. I highly recommend Dr. Constant and his staff!

Dr. Constant is one of those rare finds in the medical field. A Dr. that is caring, compassionate, takes time with you, makes sure you feel heard and explains everything to you. Through his treatment, I have been able to return back to normal activities in life and my back pain is nearly eliminated. I wish Dr. Constant had a family practice as well as I'd be going to him for that! If you're searching for someone who can help you manage your back pain, I suggest you search no further.

Dr. Constant changed my life for the better! I was suffering from chronic pain and incapacitated due to a herniated disc and a collapsed disc in L4/L5. I drove all the way from Tampa for an appointment with him as a second opinion. While the Tampa surgeon had tried 2 cortisone shots, neither took and he wanted to do surgery. Dr. Constant did a very thorough exam and was convinced we could treat me with another attempt at the cortisone shot and PT. The first one didn't take, but he didn't lose hope. #2 shot took and I have been happily pain free and RUNNING!!!! every day. In the treatment room, Dr. Constant encouraged me and made me feel safe. His positivity was infectious and I never lost hope. Excellent experience and even better outcomes! Forever grateful.

"Dr. Constant has been treating my chronic back pain for nearly four years utilizing a variety of treatments targeting specific medical problems as they arise. Throughout the years he has and continues to provide exceptional care in a professional and compassionate manner. He is an outstanding pain management doctor. Memory Smith is his ARNP and she possesses the knowledge, skills and patient care that makes her an exceptional complement to Dr. Constant. They have a great supporting staff doing an excellent job, in every facet of the practice. I want to individually compliment his injection staff i.e. Anella, Anesha, Amber and Janelli; who all do a phenomenal job. They are professional, personable, know their jobs and execute them well. They make a great team."

I was surprised and elated to get an appointment at Coastal Orthopedics and to see Dr. Constant on short notice while the office was exercising strict protocols to address the Coronavirus pandemic. My only other option would have been to go to an emergency room and with the current pandemic, I was not happy about the possible exposure to Covid-19 patients/carriers. Dr. Constant was thorough and attentive. He immediately sent me for a CT scan and he personally called me with the results later that same day. This was a Friday and I was told by the CT office staff I wouldn't get results until Monday. You can imagine my relief to learn that I had nothing worse than a fractured rib - and I didn't have to worry or wonder what could be wrong all weekend long. That was worth more than words can express. Dr. Constant prescribed appropriate medications and followed up with a phone call to check on me over the weekend. I am so impressed with the staff at Coastal Orthopedics and Dr. Constant.

Dr. Constant is compassionate and very talented at locating the source of pain. He then offers options for treatment, covering the gamut from yoga and massage to medications, and injections. He is experienced at performing pain injections with minimal discomfort to the patient. I speak from personal experience with this.

I recommend Dr. Constant to everyone I talk with that has back and leg pain. Dr. Constant treated me for a while with pain medication and then performed a WONDERFUL operation on my back. My pain is gone, I'm going to physical therapy to help stretch my muscles and all. I have NO pain. The operation took all of 30 minutes. For anyone who needs help in this area I strongly recommend they make an appt with Dr. Constant. He'll do the very best for you.

Through discussion, intake info, examination, and review of my records, Dr. Constant recommended a plan of action to get at the root of my pain, rather than just treating based on my symptoms. As a result of three injections I am delighted with the results. For the first time in over a year I am pain free. Dr. Constant is very patient focused, and uses his knowledge and skill to inform his plan of action. If I have further issues I won't hesitate to go back to him.

I knew little about pain management when I was referred to Dr. Constant by his colleague who is an orthopedic hip surgeon. The pain in my sacroiliac joint, low back and leg was keeping me from walking more than 1/2 mile and I was beginning to limp as I had done prior to a hip replacement. After one consult with Dr. Constant, a set of injections in his office and a few adjustments by a physical therapist he recommended, I am nearly 100 percent pain free. I recommend Dr Constant highly.

I would like to offer my highest recommendation for Dr. Constant. He is the consummate professional taking a sincere interest in treating and helping me deal with the pain issues associated with spinal stenosis. I have been treated by many excellent physicians in my 76 years but Dr. Constant is in a league of his own. My favorite time when arriving in Florida each year is seeing Dr. Constant and knowing that relief is on the way. He is by far the BEST.
