Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Excellent experience!
I saw Dr. Easer for a nerve injection in my shoulder. He was terrific, made me feel at ease, and had the best bedside manner I have experienced in quite a while. I will recommend him to all my friends!

Broken Hip
I was scheduled for a hip replacement 3 months out. The pain became so excruciating within a month’s time that I could barely walk and went back for a third visit . They did not believe my hip was broken. A few days later an ambulance transported me to Baptist Beaches for an X-ray and emergency hip surgery! It was indeed broken. I feel like I just slipped through the cracks at Southeast Orthopedics.

Fantastic Doctor and Practice!
My son has been having wrist pain for a few months, and Dr. Esser was able to identify and address the issue along with meeting the unusual needs of a young boy that never sits still. Dr. Esser listened, treated us like valued individuals, changed his assessment to meet the developmental needs of a 7 year old, conducted a thorough assessment and evaluation and he was incredibly knowledgeable on his field of medicine. Everyone we encountered was wonderful and made us feel welcome. My son says Dr. Esser is his favorite doctor!

Very helpful. Dr Esser directed me on with appropriate referral . Very pleasant physician. Looked at my history prior to coming in the room, so he was very prepared and had appropriate handouts etc ready. Good physical exam that he explained what he was doing while he was doing it. This was the 2 nd time I saw him. I saw him several years ago as well and was pleased.
