Dr. Valente was completely professional and built trust from our very first meeting. He came highly recommended and it didn't take very long to know why. His diagnosis was spot-on, and in the two years since my procedure I've had zero complications and complete relief from my spondylosis. Dr. Valente performed a C5-C5 Mobi-C artificial disk transplant for me, and I couldn't give anyone a higher recommendation.

Warning. Warning. Warning. I went to Disc Spine to see Dr. Valente and experienced the most careless, incomprehensive exam. It was so bizarre and impersonal that I actually thought the doctor was going to come back into the room for a more thorough conversation and exam. When, instead, a staff member appeared with a random prescription I asked, "Is he coming back? What was the point of this appointment?" I'm left feeling extremely frustrated and concerned that this medical facility was not providing a basic level of professional medical examination or proper guidance that one would expect from a doctors visit. I was floored that I left with a prescription for my injury despite the fact that the doctor said he did not have adequate information to assess my injury at the time. How can you insure that you are not doing harm if you did not thoroughly examine your patient and simply prescribed some generic medications? I went to another orthopedic and advise you to do the same.

Dr. Valente was great. I have been anxious about surgery and definitely didn’t have a surgery first approach. I had my minimally invasive discectomy today, 4 hours ago in fact. My hip and side pain is completely gone. I highly recommend Dr Valente. Don’t live in pain longer than you need to!

I had lower back surgery by Dr. Valente in December 2018. Before the surgery I had severe lower back and left leg pain. Immediately afterwards the pain was gone. The nurses after the surgery were telling me to take my pain meds but l didn't need them. I feel 20 years younger.

I had 4 discs replaced& spinal fusion on 12/07/2018. Today was my 3 month visit. I was in pain for 30 years and Dr. Valente fixed my spine from lower back pain. No dr in florida was willing to help me. I found this intelligent dr mark Valente and he performed a miracle on me with the guidance of God. I don't have any pain at all. I have recommended many people to go to him for spinal problems. Thank you to Mark Valente and his staff for everything you've done for me. You are a 5 star. God bless

I suffered with lower back pain for 40+ years. I have been seen by multiple doctors over this time and diagnosed with just about everything imaginable. Last year (2018) I used a service to find a medical professional that would provide the information needed to make a decision on my next course of action. After a consult with Dr. Valente I felt that for the first time I got a true comprehensive diagnosis. A procedure was recommended, all questions were answered and now I feel great!

I just had my 3 month post-op visit with, Dr. Valente this week. It was on, Thursday the 14th. I had x-rays, per his request before my appointment. My surgery was done on, 10/31/2018. It has been a tough 3+ months. My employer laid me off one month after the surgery. I wanted to return to work after one month. I pressed for, Dr. Valente to release me at 100% work release, but he did not. I am glad he did not give in. I was NOT ready to return to work. He is great and cares about his patients!

Dr. Valente saved my life. I had been suffering for almost 10 months under the care of another spinal surgeon. When hitting rock bottom after a failed back surgery in May, I began searching for the best surgeon I could find. Dr. Valente is not only rated in the top 2 of the country, he has proven advanced techniques in his field. Dr. Valente contacted me the same day I called for a consultation and had my surgery approved and scheduled the following week. He was worth flying across country for!

Excellent Doctor!!! Very Attentive and actually listens and tries to find a true solution to your problem . I ACDF 2Level Fusion 11/2/2016. After 2 weeks 3 days I was off the pain meds. I wore my neck brace 24/7 as required. I slept in the neck brace and I put the shower brace when showering . I took the vitamin and used the 2 creams on my scar. I am a black female. My scar is almost non existent . No keloid at all. I am 100% healed and pain free. Jessa & staff in the office are awesome !!!
