Dr. Romero is one of the most caring doctors I have ever seen. Combine his concern for his patients with a superb level of expertise in his field and you know you are in good hands. He takes the time to answer all your questions and educates you on your condition and options. I have seen both, Dr. Romero and Dr. Fishman and I highly recommend their practice. Jeana Giordano

Dr. Francisco Romero is a superb Doctor. He has helped me with my hip pain where no other Doctor could truly find the issue. Dr. Romero gave me an ultrasound guided injection thereby finding the exact cause of my pain. I am now pain free and couldn’t be happier! The office is modern and beautiful and the entire team are top notch professionals. Convenient first floor location and they have Physical Therapy on site. Highly recommend!!

Took my mother to Dr. Romano. She absolutely loved him! She said she’d Luke to come back every day. He and Dr Fischman are so caring and attentive. The staff are wonderful. There is never a wait. My mom was in so much pain and she was cured by his procedure after about 15 min. Highly recommend!

I have been to this location looking for a plan on old injuries in the past. Both Dr Romero and Dr Fishman work great together and with the patient. I recently went there with an emergency and i could have not expected any less from this office and Dr Romero. The time he spends with each individual concern is so comforting. Office staff adds additional pleasant experience with their caring personnel.

After receiving positive feedback from a friend who was treated by Doctor Romero, I scheduled an appointment with him to get a consultation regarding an issue I’ve been having with my foot. Upon arriving to his office, I was able to find parking immediately as the parking lot was large enough to accommodate several vehicles. Once inside, I observed the facility to be clean and up to date. I was promptly greeted by the front desk staff who were very kind and helpful in answering my questions and getting me situated. The X-ray technician who X-rayed my foot, was very pleasant and very patient in helping me get into the proper angle (due to my lack of mobility) to take a snapshot of my foot. While consulting with Doctor Romero, he listened to my concerns and offered several avenues to which to travel towards in resolving my issue. After discussing in length my options, I was confident in Doctor Romero’s strategy in finally bringing me some relief and getting my foot on the mends. D

Dr. Romero was very professional and affectionate at the same time. He took the time to go over my MRI disc images in detail with my husband and myself and also did an ultrasound to make sure he was giving me the most exact diagnosis for my knee injury. I left very pleased and have recommended Dr. Romero to others.

Dr Romero was very thorough, professional, informative, and knowledgeable. His service was excellent. The whole staff was great especially Maribel. I explained to Maribel I had to be at work at a certain and she respected my time. She made sure my son was seeing in and out right away. We didn't have to wait for too long at all. Maribel was very warm, friendly, and courteous. Maribel went way and beyond to help me and my son. I really appreciate the whole staff. Service was wow and excellent!

This was my first experience visiting the South Florida Spine & sports Specialist. I’m a Navy Veteran and the Miami VA Hospital out source my treatments to this office. Dr. Romero and his assistant welcomed me in a very up beat friendly way. Lots of energy and a passion in helping me with my knee issues, and Dr. Romero’s team are just as incredible as well..! Starting with the staff Raquel, Junette, Victoria, and Maribel. They are very professional, they take the time in making your visit pleasant and comfortable. I’m thankful that my medical provider at the Miami VA chose this location for my physical therapy treatments. I do highly recommend anyone in coming here to this beautiful facility. Thank you

Dr Romero is fantastic! I saw him this week for a troubled knee and my experience at the entire practice and with Dr Romero was nothing short of excellent. The practice is state of the art and all of the staff are extremely helpful, professional and friendly. I was very happy that they could x-ray and do the ultrasound right there in office and Dr Romero could go through the results straight away. Dr Romero is a wealth of knowledge and answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable.

I’ve had the opportunity to be treated by Dr. Romero on several occasions. Dr. Fishman referred me to him so he could give me an ultrasound guided injection into my torn hamstring that has been plaguing me for almost 2 years. Dr. Romero was very professional and extremely passionate about putting my needs first. I was highly pleased when he took the time to answer all of my questions and explained how he was going to treat the hamstring tear. Without a doubt, I would recommend him to everyone!??
