This surgeon is the best. I had Cerivcal [ACDF...C5] fusion for pain and numbness at neck, right shoulder and arm 2 years ago.....and have no pain or numbness at all since the second day post-op. He is thorough and precise in exam and surgical expertise. He is well known in his field and is known as the doctors' surgeon. Many surgeons in town that I knew personally told me that if they needed spine surgery," He would be there choice." I recommend him without hesitation.
Thank you Dr. Garrett! We appreciate your kind review and have shared it with Dr. Small. We are happy to hear that you are pain-free, thank you for choosing Florida Orthopaedic Institute for your care.

Good doctor, but office and doctor do not communicate clearly to make sure next steps are clear. Office is way too focused on procedure and does a lot of duplicative work.

Dr. Small was very professional, expressed his concerns and allowed me and my husband to have input concerning my well being.
