      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.

      Dr Critides is a very caring physician who is very knowledgeable about my specific problem. He has given me options and let me choose which is best for me.

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

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
