Thank you, Dr. Pidhorecky for being a professional, caring, kind, honest, knowledgeable, and amazing doctor/surgeon to my dad.

Castellon – May 07, 2020
My experience is that Dr. Pidhorecky, (with Florida Surgical Care,) is a truly outstanding Oncologyst and Surgeon. One a scale of one to ten, he gets a twenty. His communication skills are awesome; in sympathetic listening, diagnosing problems, and explaining the required procedures needed to remove my breast cancer. Throughout the pre-op, operation, and post op periods, I had immediate access to the doctor or staff. He and his staff scheduled, confirmed, and monitored the progress of my testing and preparation for ASAP surgery. They went the extra mile to insure everything was completed in a professional and timely manner. Dr. Pidhorecky then performed a successful lumpectomy surgery, taking care to minimize the intrusion to so that any residual scarring is hardly noticeable. My surgery was painless and thorough, with no chemo or radiation required. Post-operative care and follow up were likewise excellent. I give Dr. Pidhorecky and his staff the highest recommendation.

I saw Dr. Pidhorecky for a lumpectomy based upon his credentials. Lesson learned...when you don’t feel comfortable with a doctor from the start, move on!! Dr. Pidhorecky was ONLY concerned with pushing weight loss surgery and NOT discussing my needed lumpectomy. His office even contacted my insurance company for pre-authorization for weight loss surgery WITHOUT my consent. Only question he asked me in pre-op was whether or not I had the consult for the weight loss surgery! FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR!

You are in the best hands with Dr. Pidhorecky! Although I know he cares for many patients daily, he made me feel like I had his undivided attention. He and his assistant Karen guided me through every step. He addressed every question personally with empathy and reassurance. He was so efficient in scheduling my visits and procedures that within a few weeks I was able to put it all behind me. I want to thank Dr. Pidhorecky and the staff at Memorial for treating me with such care and compassion!

Dr. Pidhorecky scheduled my surgery at the earliest possible date, did the job admirably, and his assistant stays in touch to make sure my recovery is on track. I am 100% satisfied with his work. I recommend all people who find themselves in a situation like this be their own advocate - or have someone who will do it for you. The Dr.s have many patients and we need to speak up when we have problems or questions. Since this office has "My Chart" it makes communication very easy.

Michelle in Fort Lauderdale, FL – Jul 08, 2018
Dr. Pidhorecky did not, in my opinion, offer adequate care to my mother regarding the discomfort and pain in her breast. It was her first visit to his practice, and he gave her less than ten minutes of his time. He did not do his due diligence in asking her questions regarding her lifestyle, symptoms, or anything else that might help him in offering a diagnosis. He turned her away and when I called to get more information he refused to speak to me, claiming that he had nothing to say.

I have had more than one experience with Dr Pidhorecky and have to say he in smart, he is kind, he is articulate, he took time to explain everything until I was completely at ease. Surgery is scary, Dr Pidhorecky and his staff made it less scary. I can’t possibly say enough nice things about them All.

H. Manera in Pembroke Pines, Fl – Oct 10, 2017
Dr. Pidhorecky did the surgery for my mom after she was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. During our first visit he suggested that she meet with a plastic surgeon for re-constructive. We talked about it and declined the offer. After that visit, his overall demeanor changed with us. He was very brief with us, for all remaining visits. After the surgery, we saw him scrolling through his cell phone in a corner. He basically butchered my mom. His overall work was very sloppy.
