I have seen Dr. Jaqwith three times and each has been a very special experience with a new docter. He is very kind and thorough in his treatment of the situation. He gives you the time and thoughtfulness that gives you confidence. Glad a friend recommended him.

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Jaquith. He did both of my mother's knees and fixed her shattered wrist. He has helped me with the pain in both of my knees and if it comes time to have knee replacements, I will definitely go to him.
in Venice, Fl. |
Dr. Jaquith is a seasoned professional that truly cares about his patients needs, quality of life, and abilities. He takes as much time as needed to explain your issue/s and what he recommends the best course of action to make things better. Many younger doctors could take a few notes from his playbook. Plus he's just a nice guy.
in Venice, FL |
Dr. Jaquith cares about his patients. He is highly intelligent and stays current in his field. When I have a question, he listens and answers in a way a non medical person can understand. I would recommend him and have to anyone needing an orthopedist.
in Port Charlotte, FL |
Dr. Jaquith is excellent in his job. He has a lot of knowledge in the medical field. I want to congratulate him for speaking more than two languages. He is an idiomatic speaker. He gives a lot of time and attention to his patients. He is a wonderful person and doctor. His crew is tremendously qualified .My compliments to Dr. Jaquith for giving me a new knee.

I have nothing but praises for Dr. Jaquith. He is patient, kind, understand and funny. He just replaced my second knee and I'm on the mend.
in Nokomis, FL |
Update From Dec 6 2016, which was was 5 days after a Partial Knee replacement. Home nurse & Physical Therapy were amazed at my healing & range of Motion. I was feeling confident . HOWEVER 6 weeks later, that healing stopped. Now 15 weeks post surgery my mobility is no better than pre surgery. I have pain every night. Must wear a brace. The 'clicking ' in my knee has now morphed into 'Clonking' and can be heard across the room and even over the phone. I'm told that is normal.
in Venice, FL |
He has a quiet mannerism that draws people to trust him. That's good, because he seems very qualified and experienced at what he does. A very humble man.
in Venice, FL |
I have had two knee replacements and treatment for tendinitis have had excellent care. I have not experienced any of the difficulties that friends have told me of having when they have had the same surgery with other physicians. I would highly recommend Dr. Jacquith to others needing Orthopedic care.
in Englewood, FL |
Would highly recommend to family & friends.
in Venice, FL |
Dr Jaquith gave me a new Partial Knee Dr. Jaquith is an excellent Surgeon, an attentive doctor and a good and honest person. Of all the Orthopedic offices I visited, he did the most thorough exam and X-rays to establish the true condition of my knee and repairs needed . Because I was still suffering from a failed procedure at a different Orthopedic center, Dr. Jaquith was was very understanding of my guarded stance and vacillation.
in Venice, FL |
He treats each person as an individual, takes time to answer questions, has a reassuring, upbeat personality & a wonderful sense of humor. Also just as important, he's an excellent physician & surgeon.

Dr. Jaquith is a caring and professional doctor who treated me for my knee. He studies your xrays and personal health information and examines you carefully but gently and asks you questions to further assess your situation. He is the patient's physician.

Very up to date in his field & always shows concern for your trouble
in Venice, FL |
Dr. Jaquith made me feel very comfortable and spent a good amount of time with me, explaining what was wrong with my knee and giving me specific exercises for it. I like that he did not rush into doing any kind of procedure, but told me that it should eventually get better.
