Dr Rothberg over books. Waited 3 hrs for an appt. that took 15 minutes! Surgery was even worse. Supposed to be finished at 11 with hand surgery. At 12 had still not had the surgery! Asked what was going on? The anesthesiologist came in and said "you don't want him to go without his lunch, do you? I said YES! I want to stop this now, I no longer want the surgery!' The son of a gun put me further under!!!! Doc did the hand surgery and I was finished at 3pm!! Would not see me at his office!!

Would avoid Orthopedic Associates of West Florida. Dr Rothburg give me a wrist brace for an injury & told me there is a copay of $10 they confirmed with Humana. They collected the $10 & 1 month later tell me I still owe $55 due to a mistake by the office staff. They accept that it was their mistake but keep telling me ANY unpaid funds are my responsibility. As other reviews have stated - This place has no respect for you or your time. To them, you are just a dollar sign and a number.

I have had two surgeries for Dupuytren's contracture, The last by Dr. M. Rothberg. When I need a third surgery for Duputren, Dr. Rothberg suggest the use of Xiaflex injection. I had the injection on Wed., very little pain, and on Fri., under local anesthetic my finger was straightened. I was awed and amazed. Very little after pain and I was golfing on Monday. Thank you Dr. Rothberg.

Unethical billing practices, poor customer service, and late.

Dr Rothberg is very knowledgeable and caring. He understood the problem I was having and gave me several choices of treatments. The treatment he recommended worked fantastic. I was in pain for several months and in the 1 month he treated me, my symptoms resolved. I recommend Dr. Rothberg for any hand or shoulder problem
