Dr. Critides has been excellent in my husband's care following several strokes. Dr. Critides is very caring and extremely knowledgeable! We are grateful for his service!
Milton, FL |
I like that a surgeon tries to avoid doing surgery. Most specialists just want to do what they have their degrees for! He spent time explaining my health situations and showed me all my options. He also recommended that I get a second opinion as well. I really like his approach to my situation.

I met him shortly after he came you Pensacola. His credentials are impressive but his skill level and bedside manner are not. I think his most recent background was administrative not actually acute surgery. He was dismissive of my account of my symptoms. He refused to read a copy of my MRI written report, saying that he probably wouldn't agree. He's told me at least three times that if I didn't like what he had to say that I could go to another doctor. That was his best advice yet. Rude. Cold.

Believes more in recommending Yoga, Pilates, and meditation for back pain. Very conservative approach and told to bite the bullet and grin through pain.
