Deltona, FL |
Aweful experience. Get another office. Dr might be good but not worth the hassle of the staff. No urgency and too busy. Your care and surgery will revolve around little availabity and staff who is rude and lies. Thank God my insurance company came to bat for me and i went to halifax. They are rated in the top 10 percent in the nation as well as top 200 hospitals for orthapedic in the nation. There are plenty of qualified doctors and care.

I want to thank my doctors for the excellent job they done on my double knee replacement. I have zero pain in each replacement already 2 days after surgery. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to you Dr. Goldsmith !!!
in Plant City, FL |
Super work done for getting both knees replaced with no post surgery issues. Highly recommended for all Orthopedic work.
in Gibsonton, FL |
Yes sure he is best of best doctor
Tampa, FL |
GET A SECOND OPINION!!!!! My wife broke her wrist. Dr. Scott Goldsmith said that the "only" way to get her bones back in line is with surgery. This was just NOT TRUE!!!! I took her to a hand surgeon for a second opinion, that doctor was able to line the bones back up WITHOUT SURGERY!!!!! It was very painful but she doesn't have to live with a plate and screws in her hands for the rest of her life!!!
in St Petersburg, FL |
Very pleased with the hip replacement and quicker than expected recovery!
in Plant City, FL |
Excellent service and care
in Tampa, FL |
I'm impressed with Dr. Goldsmith. He was direct and honest regarding treatment options and the expected outcomes for me. Dr. Goldsmith presented choices, not mandates. He took time to answer questions so I could make the best informed decision for me.
Plant City, FL |
He did my right hip and it's been GREAT! Only one day in the hospital and I have been great since
in Lakeland, FL |
I have needed a total hip replacement for several years and have had a couple surgeons drag their feet, but not Dr Scott Goldsmith. He's my real life hero. Within 6 weeks of his examination he had me set up for surgery and here I sit almost 3 weeks after replacement, thanking God that I found him. This type of surgery is rough, it'll be a couple of months of hard work but it's worth it. Dr Goldsmith is compassionate and caring, a good man and I thank him for giving me my life back.
in Plant City, FL |
Our experience with Dr. Goldsmith has been amazing. He was able to help us when no one else could. The process has been fast, easy and successful in which we are grateful for. We would highly recommend Dr. Goldsmith to any family or friend.
St Petersburg, FL |
The Doctor is extremely good and very experienced, unfortunately it's impossible to get a hold of them on the phone or for emergencies. it takes about 45 minutes just to schedule an appointment, won't refill your meds until over two weeks from the request date from the pharmacy.
in Plant City, FL |
Dr. Goldsmith replaced my right hip two weeks ago. I have lived in severe pain 24/7. There was never a second I was pain free. I have been confined to a wheelchair for the past two years. Today, I am walking! Other than some minor soreness from the surgery, the pain on my right side is gone. My left hip still has to be replaced. I have all the confidence in the world, when Dr. Goldsmith completes that surgery, I will be pain free in my hips and will have my life back!
in Ocala, FL |
Friendly and helpful. Good doctor
in Plant City, FL |
Dr. Scott Goldsmith was wonderful! My entire surgical experience went without a hitch and I would highly recommend him.
in PLANT CITY, fl |
did a Bucher job fixing my hip. made it worse with 2nd surgery. I was stupid to allow him to operate the 2nd time. he placed my acetabular cup 1inch too high and 1 inch forward so.I barely walked like the hunchback of notes dame
Lakeland, FL |
Dr. Goldsmith did a total knee replacement on me in July of 2016, I had another replacement done on my other knee 12 years ago and had nothing but problems after the operations, in fact after three months the replacement broke and I had to have a second operation to correct it. When Dr. Goldsmith did my knee in July I was out of the hospital the next day and have not had any problems since. I give the Doctor Five (5) Stars.

Very down to earth and easy to talk to. Good doctor.
in Winter Haven, Florida |
He gave me back my life. I had not been able to walk for over a year and the pain was unbearable in both of my hips. I had a complete right hip replacement (which was the worst of the two hips) and felt great in just over a week. I need to have my left hip replaced now and I'm ready to jump up on the operating table. Dr. Scott Goldsmith is a genius and a miracle worker. God Bless Him!
in Plant City, FL |
He is a very good doctor and very helpful. I would definitely recommend him to everyone.

I have already told family and friends of you.

Ft Bragg, NC |
3x since DEC my dad had surgery scheduled with this doctor and all 3x the doctor canceled. The old surgical coordinator was recently fired. She lied to my dad about him even being on the schedule. The new coordinator is a witch! She is now claiming he owes $900 for services that were not even rendered or duplicate services that were not even necessary (x-rays). This doctor seems like a nice enough guy but his staff is awful! My dad is in so much pain he can't even walk and now has no surgeon!

Dr. Goldsmith is an amazing surgeon. Not only is he super talented at what he does, he genuinely cares about the patients he operates on. My quality of life has greatly improved because of my new knee. Better than that, is the caring I received from Dr. goldsmith and his ohysician's assistants. LOVE them.
