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.

My first visit with Dr. Constant was for compression fractures, resulting from a fall in 2015. Both my husband and I found Dr. Constant to be very knowledgeable in his field, a good listener, concern, never felt rushed during the visit. Dr. Constant always included my husband in all our conversations and concerns. I believe my last procedure was about a year ago, so far so good. Thank you Dr Constant!

From the moment the examination door opened, Dr. Constant was most cordial, smiling, taking time to go over the referral from Dr. Ottaviani. Being a retired Nurse Practitioner and having experienced the good, bad and indifferent physicians, I knew I was in right place. Together we discussed and chose the treatment that would give positive results. If you are looking for a physician who is "Exceptional "............you have found him! Thank You, Dr. Constant

I went to see Dr. Constant for lower back pain related to a bulging disc and early arthritis around my facet joint. I tried PT, massage, and chiropractic care for 6 months but did not get any pain relief. The pain was disrupting my sleep and daily activities. Dr. Constant provided a thoughtful and intelligent approach to treating my condition. After receiving a lumbar medial branch block, I'm thrilled to report that my pain has disappeared, and I'm feeling 'back' to my old self!

Dr. Constant has been my pain management doctor since I moved to Florida 2 years ago. As a registered nurse, I am very particular about the physicians I see. Dr. Constant was a breath of fresh air. He is kind, courteous, friendly, compassionate, but most importantly he knows his stuff. He has recommended various procedures for my back and hip pain and after completing those procedures I was amazed at how greatly my pain was reduced. He is a top notch doctor. Go see for yourself.
