What People Say About Dr. Jorge Acevedo, MD

I had extreme damage to my ankle from boxed ankle replacement in Everett Washington. Dr. Azevedo has helped me to retain my leg rather than suffer amputation like Mayo Clinic recommended. Dr. Azevedo is a rare find in the orthopedic world. If only I had been able to go to him after my accident I would not have had my ankle removed instead it would have been put back together with skill. You won't find a kinder ankle and foot doctor than Dr. Acevedo anywhere.

I am extremely pleased with the results and Dr. Acevedo’s surgical skills with regard to my right ankle, injured when the ground collapsed under me. My fear prolonged scheduling the surgery. He and his staff are courteous, patient and possess excellent skills. I am able to walk, run, and wear heels with little discomfort if any, within 3 months of surgery. As a 66 year old woman, amazing. Very grateful!

Dr. Acedveda is an amazing doctor and surgeon. I saw him almost a year after my injury. He preformed ligament and tendon repair on my ankle and I feel better today then I have in a long time. He has given me the ability to be walk again without pain. The PT clinic at Southeast Orthopedic is almost an amazing team of people. Thank you all so much for making me feel so much better. I am so extremely grateful!

In 1917, I was diagnosed with a bone spur in my heel. For almost a year, I endured everything imagineable to relieve my pain. I visited Dr. Acevedo in late 2017 and he performed surgery to remove the spur in December. I was the first patient he did this type of surgery on and it was so very successful!!! I no longer am in pain; my recovery was quick, and I am so pleased to have been a part of this new type of surgery with a very knowledgeable physician who took a chance on me.

Dr. Acevedo at Southeast Orthopedic is an outstanding surgeon and repaired my right ankle after (Bimalleolar Ankle Fracture) after breaking it in late June. Everyone worked together and is focused on the patient’s wellbeing and recovery. The follow up post-surgery physical therapy department was also out-standing. Thank You for all that you do for your patients.

I have a degenative peripheral nerve disease that is hereditary. It's technical name is 'Charcott-Marie-Tooth Disease', named after the three doctors that discovered it. It left me with very high arches and hammer toes. This deformity caused excruciating pain when trying to walk due to callouses. Dr Acevedo evaluated my condition. He performed surgery on one foot one year and the second foot a year later. I highly recommend Dr Acevedo to anyone with similar foot issues.

Dr. Acevedo graciously took my Worker's Compensation case from a doctor that dump my case once he realized that it was a Worker's Compensation case. He performed surgery on my ankle that the other doctor overlooked and also fixed problems from the surgery the first doctor performed. He was always attentive and reasonably timely with keeping his appointments. He spent the necessary time with me, so I presume he does the same for his other patients. A good man and an excellent surgeon.

The level of care was excellent. Dr. Acevedo listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions thoroughly. He and his team spent as much time with me as was needed; I never felt rushed. The results of my total ankle replacement have been wonderful. I have already recommended Dr. Acevedo to others, and will continue to do so.

After seeing several doctors, and not having a proper diagnosis, Dr. Acevedo was able to accurately diagnose and treat my foot issues. Through conservative treatment, I have been able to begin exercising once again. I would highly recommend him.

I was in pain daily until Dr Acevedo was able to help me 4 years ago, he successfully operated on my right ankle. I have a much better quality of life now, I highly recommend Dr. Acevedo if you are having foot or ankle issues he is the man to see.

I broke a bone in my foot recently. Everyone on his team who saw the X-rays said - surgery. He stuck me in a boot that gave me a 3 inch difference in leg legnth. On the 3rd visit, I asked about the possibly of surgery. He stated he would NOT operate on me because I smoke. Any moral issues a doctor has with a patient should come up during the 1st visit. I should have been given the opportunity to spend my money elsewhere.

terrible experience i felt like he was rushing to the next patient. i brought my mri and asked him was it worse than my previous one and he said i dont know i did not look at them. he stared at my scar from previous surgery i had the whole time zoned out like he could care a less and when i asked questions he said we will talk about that after therapy.

I’m not impressed. He didn’t listen and constantly interrupted me while I was trying to talk. I felt like he was in a hurry to get to next patient. Also felt the same about his PA. Mr. Peppers. He spent most of my appointment telling me how many other patients he had with the same thing and how he’s only supposed to spend 10 minutes with me.

Dr. Acevedo is kind and takes time to explain things, answer questions, etc. I like him and think that he's a good surgeon. However, my incision healed poorly/abnormally causing restricted movement/pain/nerve damage. I expressed concern more than once, but by the time it was finally recognized, it was too late. Also, post-op pain was off the charts and I don't care for his PA, whom you see more than him. Although my experience has not been great, I am far better off than I was prior to surgery.

He is by far, the worst doctor I've ever been seen by. He does not listen, he does not care. He does not take the time to explain your condition, and you spend more time in the waiting room than in the actual consult. I've had 3 appts with him. Waited an average of 45 min to be seen, an average of 7 min with actual talk time with him before he'd rush out of the room and schedule you for another consult in 6 weeks. Is someone like this the doctor you want performing your ankle/foot surgery?

This review is long overdue, my apologies to Dr Acevedo. He did 7 different procedures on my L foot. I had had polio as a kid, so struggled to do many things others could do. When I saw Dr Ace he said "you should have had this done 20 yrs ago". I said I was waiting for him to perfect his craft, he said "I was a bad a__ then too". I knew I had the right Dr. I couldn't stand 10 min at the kitchen sink without pain prior to surgery. I recently returned from Mt Everest basecamp in Nepal. Thx Dr!

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Acevedo and team. I fractured both heels and was referred to him due to his experience. In the hospital right after it happened I was told I may not play tennis again. It has been 4 months since the surgery and I am starting to play. He is gifted, thoughtful, dedicated, and passionate. I showed up for an appt on the wrong day and I was back within 10 min. I had a flare up one afternoon, I called and they had an appt for me at 8 the next morning. THANK YOU!
