Good things are found in New Port Richey. I have broken many bones in my misspent youth. Now, in my senior years it's my arthritis what slows me down. I have had a chance to interact with many Orthopaedic doctors but nor has been as skilled and caring as Dr Candelora. I highly recommend him and his staff. They treat you like family and have the skill and knowledge to solve your problems. They have certainly changed my life for the better!

Not enough caracters allowed. After he gets payed under workmans comp he dismisses you completely Prior to my surgery and right after he has my praise and everything would have been marked EXCELLANT
I personally called Arleeta and left a message for which she has never responded. This is a worker's comp case. I did order other treatments for the patient which were never approved. Despite contacting her work comp provider multiple times, my office never succeeded in getting approval for further care. I did not dismiss this patient until we could not get further care approval. I was forced to end care and give the patient the appropriate ratings. I did explain this to Arleeta.

Dr. Candelora performed a total knee replacement on me and all went very well. Compared to other people I know, my outcome was much better. I healed well and there was never any sign of any infection. He treated me with respect and always answered my questions.
I really appreciate your comments. I it always helpful and good to know that we are doing a good job.
