What People Say About Dr. Jeffrey Florman, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

My PCP referred me to this physician for multiple disc herniations at c3-c6 with severe pain and myelopathy at c3-c4. Florman arrogantly dismissed it as 'not bad enough' to consider surgery at that time. However I have now been scheduled to receive proper surgical treatment at a well known hospital in Boston and without delay due to serious nature of injury and it's urgency to remediate. Best of luck to Florman and company in Scarborough Maine.

My son herniated a disc in his neck. This physician advised steroids & if that didn't work come back & he would do the surgery. SEVENTEEN months of steroids and prescription pain meds, MRIs, lost feeling in his arm and loss of muscle tone & then he refused to do the surgery. Went to another surgeon. Had surgery within the week. His disc was crushed and had to be totally removed and replaced.

I met with dr florman sometime in december where he was blunt but real about what I was facing. I prefer the hoensty and his advice. We decided to go for it and fiz ths problem. January 18th 2016 doctor Florman successfully removed a Avm from my brain. . In so many ways he is my hero for what he did not only for me, but what he does for people in general. I CANNOT GIVE ENOUGH TO THANKS to him. Thanks u!

My wife and I had his-and-hers meningiomas a few years apart, and Dr. Florman performed both surgeries. (Although he didn't offer quantity discounts.) He was careful to fully explain the procedures, and we had implicit faith in him. He did tell us about the dangers inherent in the surgeries, but he did so in such a way that we weren't worried (much). We'd go back to him in a second, and we've recommended him to others.

I visited Dr. Florman with my daughter. He introduced himself, leaned on the counter and said" so you want neck surgery, screws,metal plate's and pain. I went there on a referral to decide if I should have shoulder surgery or neck surgery first. The answer was shoulder surgery. Who goes to a neck surgeon on a referral to hear that. Answer: he scared the he'll out of me. Very unprofessional introduction. I'll never go back to him

Dr Florman treated me with emergency surgery after a serious injury to my L1 and lumbar after which I was entirely paralyzed from the waist down and had no feeling in my legs. Day three after the operation I was up and moving around in a brace and because of his expertise in the operating room where he replaced a burst vertebra with biomatter and inserted rods. He gave excellent follow up advice, and the notes from the surgery were thorough, which helped with insurance and work accommodations.

I went to Dr. Florman after a severe neck injury. He declared he could not rebuild my neck! and I would be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life like Christopher Reeves. As an ex-jockey this didn't sound attractive and I moved on. Nine months after another surgeon HAD rebuilt my neck with stem cells from my hip, I hiked to the top of Mount Washington. I live a full life with full functioning hands and legs. Detailed letter and pictures to follow by snail mail. Not good Dr. Florman! Devi
