Port Charlotte, FL |
I came into the office with my left pinky finger almost fully contracted. Dr Olarte diagnosed Dupuytren's Contracture after his assessment and a few question about my ethnicity. The next visit he preformed an in office procedure call needle aponeurotomy. I walked out of the office with my finger straightened with the the mobility back. I highly recommend Dr Olarte. The office staff was friendly.

in Punta Gorda, FL |
Please let me start by saying I have had shooting pains in my arms and neck for about 2 years prior to my surgery. Had I know that all the pain was connected to my hands and having Carpal Tunnel Syndrome I would have come to Dr. Olarte much sooner. Only when my hands were numb most of the time did I decide to visit Dr. Olarte. My surgery went smooth and with in a day I had no more numbness AND arm and neck pain were gone! Dr. Olarte you are a blessing!! Thank you!

Very personable, excellent communication and did a DeQuervain's Release surgery which relieved my wrist pain immediately. Excellent surgeon and patient oriented.

Dr Olarte is amazing. His personality is very nice. and His surgical hands are great. His has done surgery on both of my hands and has fixed them both with next to no scarring. I would and will recommend him to all my friends. His office staff is all very friendly also.
in North Port, FL |
When I arrived with my injury, I never thought that they would be able to fix the damage that I had made for them. Dr Olarte assured me that he could help and fix me. Dr Olarte is a very compassionate and passionate doctor. He and his whole staff made my wife and I feel very welcomed and comfortable with every visit/operation. Dr Olarte, we can't thank you and your staff enough for what you have done for me/us. You made a very traumatic time for us a lot easier. Thank you again!

Dr Olarte is one of the best hand and arm surgeons I know of. He is very professional and was able to fix the problem in my hand and elbow. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a hand or arm surgeon.
in Rotonda West, FL |
Very informative with what was going to take place and what I could expect during the procedure and after. His recommendations for treatment were perfect for me.

Professional, yet personable.
in Arcadia, fl |
Our experience was great. He was very thorough with what the procedure was going to be the outcome and the length of recovery. He was very professional and the best part that he spoke Spanish and we could understand each better.
in Port Charlotte, FL |
everything went well and as good as I expected.. it would have been nice though to have at least 2 days of some type of pain meds after the surgery instead of just over the counter aleeve or Tylenol. was very uncomfortable the first 2 days.
in Ft Myers, FL |
Dr Olarte and his staff were very friendly and helpful each and every time I was seen in the offcie
in Cape Coral, FL |
Very autocratic and inflexible. He schedules his appointments so the patient arrives 15 minutes before he actually expects to see the patient. In other words, his time is way more important than the patients.
We do our best to handle our schedule as efficiently as possible, unfortunately delays occur and emergencies do walk in and need immediate attention. The downside is that delays sometimes do occur. I'm sorry if this patient was not satisfied.
in Estero, FL |
I saw Dr Orlarte last week after struggling with wrist and hand pain for seven months. I am an avid golfer and was concerned that I needed to give up the game. Dr Olarte listened patiently to my concerns, explained my X-ray showing bone on bone arthritis, recommended a treatment and fitted me with a wrist brace. Three days later I broke 80 for the first time in my 40 year golfing career!! My friends and I were stunned! I'm enjoying golf again.
in Lake Suzy, FL |
He has great bedside & chair side manner. Compassionate.
in Punta Gorda, FL |
Dr. Olarte is very personable. He listens to you and discusses without qualms, whatever your issue is.
Ft Myers, FL |
Misdiagnosed my wrist injury refused to look at previously taken x-ray series. Did not follow proper protocol to diagnose my injury. Healthcare professional can not recommend his services.
Unfortunately, not all patients present in the same fashion. I make an effort to see all diagnostic materials including x-rays to diagnose and treat patients. It is a shame that this patient was lost at follow-up.
