second opinion not very accurate
Merritt Island, FL |
Dr. Valdivia is an outstanding physician!!! He treated me, my son, and my daughter on separate occasions. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. Additionally, he answers all of my questions! He gets my highest recommendation!!

I was truly surprised at the negative reviews and glad I didn't base my opportunity for a great surgeon on them. Dr. Valdivia did surgery on my shoulder. From my first appt. to last I couldn't be more pleased. His staff and Dawn his PA were always super nice, always giving me full attention and time. His physical therapy partners next door were beyond amazing. I could not have recovered without them as well and quickly as I did. Thank you Dr. Valdivia for putting this Soldier back together.

Dr. is good. Hesitant to go back....PA is arrogant jerk. Don't want to have anything to do with PA. Want the Dr. to see me, not a smart mouth want-a-be PA. Office is too small, doc needs to spend a bit more time with patients. Rehap...really bad. Young kids don't understand pain and how to rehap after surgery. If I'm all jacked up on pain meds. of course I can do 150 knee bends. "not smart". Would recommend Dr. Valdivia if one can tolerate his staff.

As a patient, I am very pleased with Dr. Valdicia! Surgically repaired my hand and shoulder. He along with his staff deserve all 5 starts.

Dr. Valdivia has completed replacement of both hips. February 2015 was the left hip and November 2015 was the right hip. Both times the operation was completed Monday afternoon. Myself along with other joint patientS walked (not well) to the physical therapy room. We did this again Wednesday afternoon. About 2 hours later we were discharged from the hospital. Dr. Valdivia and his staff were wonderful. I will have my right shoulder replaced February 2017 and both of my knees maybe May 2017.
