Dr. Florez is amazing. He takes the time to listen and makes his decision on what needs done first. I just had wrist surgery and was super nervous before hand and he helped me ease it down. It has been 6 days since surgery and my wrist/hand feels amazing. No swelling no pain. Just a little sore in some spots but not the same sore pain I had before surgery. He's one doctor I recommend to everyone. Plus his smile will brighten up day no matter what. Such a great doctor!

I was able to get an appointment the same day I called. Like the other reviews I can say he has a great bedside manner and made me feel very comfortable. I did a good bit of research before I made any calls and I'm very happy with Dr. Florez!

Dr. Flores was literally a life saver for me. When I called the orthopedic group in mon city they told me he no longer worked there. They would not tell me how to locate him. I spent a lot of time locating him and thought he was in Philly. Imagine my delight in finding that he was not that far. This young , caring surgeon has spoiled me. If I had needed a surgeon, I would have gone to Philly. Bless you, Dr. Florez?
Darlene, you have been a fantastic patient. Thank you for your continued vote of confidence. I am glad you are doing well.
