What People Say About Dr. George Caldwell Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Caldwell is a top notch surgeon and came highly recommended by both prior patients and numerous physical therapists. He did my first ACL in 2012 and my second in 2019. Tore both in separate skiing accidents. He is consistently developing new methods to make the surgery more successful but I’m sure he could do it with his eyes closed. Never had any issues, his bedside manner is perfect and his staff are awesome. Hopefully I never have to see him again but if I need another one I wouldn’t go to anyone else.

The staff was amazing! The front desk was not the friendliest but once you are taken Dr. Caldwell’s nurses and everyone that works for him is incredibly nice and helpful! I had shoulder instability and labrum repair surgery with Dr. Caldwell and it went extremely well! It is so worth the drive to Ft. Lauderdale for a great doctor!

Found Dr Caldwell to be an excellent surgeon and diagnostician. After an MRI he explained what my problem was and that it was repairable. The recovery time of rotary cuff surgery is well known and Dr Caldwell didn’t sugar coat it. Everything Dr Caldwell told me came to pass. The surgery was very successful. Appointments are generally on time and the office is very easy to work with. The PA who works with Dr Caldwell is excellent and quite thorough in his follow up. I feel I was in very good hands and would recommend Dr Caldwell with no reservations.

Dr. Caldwell has performed arthroscopic surgery on both of my shoulders, both of my knees and my wife's knee as well. If you want the best, he is the guy to see. His staff is very friendly and they make you feel comfortable and appreciated.

Dr. Caldwell is an outstanding doctor, and members of his office staff are also wonderful. Not only is Dr. Caldwell excellent at what he does, he also has a wonderful bedside manner. He genuinely cares about his patients. His PA, Michael, is also fantastic. If I ever need another knee surgery, I will fly to Florida to have Dr. Caldwell perform the procedure. He has won many awards, and he deserves them all.
