It’s been 5 years since doc did my bicep tendon surgery! Followed his instructions and everything is great! He was kind, very professional and I’d recommend him to anybody needing his expertise! Just a all around outstanding doctor and human! I’ve recently injured my arm and doc is not in the same group that he was before but a little search and I found him again and will be seeing him soon! Don’t delay call him and get yourselves checked out by a outstanding doctor!

Dr. Florez main goal was to convince me that what his partner said was true. rather than figuring out what was actually wrong. Not to mention anytime I would try to voice my concerns he would cut me off. I had a routine appointment with my pcp who immediately suggested an MRI and set me up an appointment with a different doctor. The amount of anxiety this has caused is totally unnecessary. I hope nobody else has to deal with this.

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!

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?
