    Terrible experience! I felt like I was in an assembly line. The majority of my time during visits was spent with his physician's assistant. I was scheduled for a minesectemy surgery of my knee, yet during the surgery he also do a microfracture surgery without my consent, Prior to the surgery he had never mentioned that this was an option. Microfracture surgery is a very aggressive procedure and the success rate is not very high. Mine was a failure and my knee will never heal.

    Did not even get past the scheduling to see the doctor. After being basically reprimanded because I did not know what information I needed when I called in. Even after I stopped her in her rant and asked her to please realize that while she may do this every day, I do not need surgery or make appointments to have one on a daily bases she continued to be rude. But hey its a "Miami" thing right? Well doc maybe spend a little money on your staff and staff training. I will find someone else.
