Well he has worked on my entire family who have had orthopedic needs. He is WORLD CLASS Ortho right here in Polk County. His ability to diagnose the problem (which is almost always confirmed by the MRI studies) is amazing. His outcomes are top notch, his skill and technique are so good that he disturbs only the tissues he is working on leading to faster than normal outcomes, no messing around in your joint. Very even natured, very professional and does a 5 star job!!

Absolutely the BEST doctor around! I would drive a hundred miles for his care. He reworked both my daughters knees, one of my sons knees, and repaired major tears in my shoulder. He takes the time to talk with you and his PA's are great also!

My husband has had multiple Orthopedic doctors over the years and Dr. Padgett is by leaps and bounds the best. His objective is what is best for his patient. He is a very caring doctor and it is obvious in the way he talks to you and listens to your concerns. We recommend him to anyone that wants quality care.

Without question, one of the finest doctors I have ever had an association with.
Winter Haven, FL |
My 70 yr. old husband saw Dr. Padgett on Feb. 2 for a shoulder issue. He had seen 2 orthopedic surgeons previously. Both said his only option was a shoulder replacement. Although Dr. Padgett agreed that would be a permanent solution, he did offer other intermediate steps he could try first. He received a shot in a different part of his shoulder than the previous shots and amazingly it has provided great pain relief. We are so thankful to have found Dr. Padgett. We would highly recommend him.

From the first time I met him, Dr. Padgett exhibited a true concern for my well being. Dr. Padgett was very thorough in his diagnosis on my shoulder. He offered me different options for rehabilitation. I chose to have surgery. He explained to me what the issues were, how he could correct them and what my expectations should be. Surgery went extremely well and my recovery time has been unbelievably short. I attribute this to his skills as a surgeon. His staff was excellent. I would highly him!!
