Because he's OK in what he does, of you ignore the fact that Dr Uribe thinks he is God Almighty, he's not that bad. Maybe he has self esteem problems.

Dr. Uribe performed partial surgery on my left knee. He also did surgery on my left shoulder. He's the best. A week after the knee surgery I attended the boat show walking and climbing all over the place. It was the same with my shoulder. A month later I had regained all my shoulder functions.

Dr. Uribe is no doubt the best orthopedic surgeon in Miami, and certainly within the top 10 in the U.S.. I have had 4 surgeries in 2 years because of bad practice, 6 surgeries in 12 years, and now Uribe took my case. He repaired the ACL, torn meniscus and bone grafting. His skills have changed my life, minimal pain, almost no swelling and within 30 days full flexibility. My knee feels rock solid, therapy has been a breeze and I know my knee troubles are a few months from being over. A+++++++

I had arthroscopic surgery of my knee 21 years ago with Dr Uribe. My operated knee was left like new, like as if I had never had any problem. Dr. uribe did all things right from the first day I saw him until my last appointment with him. He doesn't waste time chatting too much with the patient. While my mother may not like this (she likes to talk), all I care is for the doctor to fix well my problem and Dr Uribe was very professional about taking care of my knee.
