I prayed to God to show me who the best doctor was for my total knee replacement, God directed me to Dr. Cole. Dr. Cole is the best! He did a excellent job on my knee that was eaten up by arthritis. My right leg at the knee went way out about maybe 12 inches, my legs were not straight and they had been that way for years. Now my leg is straight & my leg now fells very strong like a strong column. My recovery has been very fast Dr Cole is a kind, caring perfectionist. ????

Dr. Cole was able to help me. After seeing three other orthopedic surgeons , who though my issue was my knee. Dr. Cole after examining me knew my hip was the issue. Five weeks post o.o and feel like I am on my way to returning to my life again. Thank you Dr. Cole.

Dr. Cole performed a complete hip replacement for me in 2017. Within 1.5 weeks I was walking unassisted by a walker or cane, and within 2 weeks I was able to resume most normal activities, walked a mile, and did not need therapy. He is a superior surgeon with a great bedside manner. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I would highly recommend Dr. Cole. In fact, I have already recommended to 3 of my friends to have their orthopedic surgery done by him. First of all, he came highly recommended from one of my friends. Second, Dr. Cole, his nurses, and staff are all so kind, supportive, and work so well together that all of my needs were met within one day. Third, I had knee that did not function in any way and so painful but after my surgery it functions perfect and no.pain. Thank you Dr. Cole!!
Winter Park, FL |
I have never been more insulted in my life and treated so horribly and unprofessional. This doctor is so full of himself he has taken the actual care for his patients out of his practice. He doesn't care that existing patients are hurting and his staff is impossible to get ahold of. They make promised they don't keep. He is an egomaniac and the most unprofessional , unethical doctor I have ever been to! Doctors are supposed to care about their patients, be there to help them. He doesnt!!

Superb surgeon. Saved my leg when other doctors said amputation was needed.
in Orlando, Fl |
He's so stuck up he won't even see his coworkers for treatment or give them respect when working. I've recommended him and tried to get an appointment after an accident and he kept trying to turf both me and the guy I recommended to his partners. Not asking favors just a little courtesy. If you want a real doctor that actually cared about his patients and not just making millions from tons of surgery I would go elsewhere.

State of the art Dr. Terrific communicator. Full knee replacement with perfect result.
in Orlando Fla |
Dr. Cole covers all aspects of ones health, before he will do the surgery. To make sure the patient completely understands the surgery, you attend a two hour class, with a nurse, who will make sure you understand everything that will occur. Plenty of literature is also provided. Dr. Cole is cool, calm, and collective. You won't feel rushed in the office, as if you were part of a herd of cattle. After my total knee replacement, I was upset with myself, and he gave me my confidence back.
in Orlando, FL |
Dr Cole failed to adequately describe the risks associated with computer navigated (Stryker system technology used) surgery. I had NO idea that computer tracker pins would be drilled into my femur (two) and my tibia (one). This was never mentioned in any pre-op visits. Ten weeks after my total knee replacement surgery my femur snapped as I was changing slacks----Just standing on my right leg to remove slacks from left leg! Very poor post surgical help from Dr. Cole and his medical staff.
