Patient Comments (4)

Been seeing Dr Lopez since moving to Florida. My arthritic hands have been a pain issue that we've tried to control with injections. We agree that it's time for surgery and I'm confident that he is the right man to give me exceptional results! Wait time in his office sucks and it's a great time...more

I didn't see Dr. Lopez. I saw his assistant and received knee injections from him. I won't know the outcome from the knee injections until six weeks from now. My knee is still in pain.

He listens and does not rush you like many of doctors do these days. His office staff are pleasant. The Brandon office had a long office waiting time. Sun City Center had a very short office wait time.

Very truthful and honest that he may not be the person I need to see. Friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable.
