Dr. Acevedo and his PA Kristen are amazing. I would highly recommend.

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!

Excellent surgeon and human being. I have never met a more caring surgeon. Extremely competent and top notch. Jacksonville is lucky to have him . His PA Stephen Peppers is also very competent and great rapport with patients. So glad I found Dr. Acevedo after my extensive ankle fractures.

After a horrible dislocation and 7 total fractures I am doing great. Dr Acevedo has a wonderful bedside manner and totally put me at ease. I was scared to death and he had me laughing and I have total confidence in him and his PA. I highly recommend him. Care was wonderful and also the X-ray techs were so caring and helpful.

Dr. Acevedo is a very good listener and preformed a very successful surgery on my right foot.

My experience with Dr. Acevedo and all of his staff have been great. They put the patient at ease during visits and take time for the patient and patients needs. At this time I have more mobility in my right foot and no PAIN. This is the best it has been in three years. At this time I am able to walk and wear shoes and it feels great. Date of surgery 12/03/15 and five months late I am walking. a mile a day. Before surgery I could not walk more than a short distance.

I have had two surgery procedures with Dr. Acevedo. Both were quite extensive and both have resulted in my regaining complete mobility without pain. I have my life back thanks to Dr. Acevedo, his PA Mr. Peppers and their excellent team.
