St Pete, Fl |
I have seen Dr Mixa for a tibial fx and for a left knee replacement in 2000.Then I had a very favorable opinion of him. I saw him today for my right knee due to increasing pain and decreased mobility. I am an experienced RN? Today I found Mixa to be in a hurry with rote explanations of what I already knew was going on with my knee and what the next course of action. He was condescending, placating & spoke more to my male partner than to me. I will not go back again & don't recommend him!

Has a knee revision by Dr. Mixa 15 months ago - it is loose and must be completely re-done. He had no recollection of me or the surgery when I returned for a consult. So unimpressed with his lack of bedside manner and more importantly, his lack of surgical skill.

I like Dr Mixa but I don't like his office. It is overcrowded with long long wait times and lots of screaming children. His up front staff are removed from the chaos and it seems they often forget you are there. The ambiance is uncomfortable. I have had some complications with my knee surgery that were exacerbated by having to wait forever in the waiting room to see the doctor. I find a two hour wait to be extremely stressful.

Do NOT entrust your medical care to Dr. Mixa under ANY circumstances! He is completely unprofessional and shows EXTREMELY poor judgement. In addition, his staff is rude and uncaring and treat patients with utter contempt and show absolutely NO compassion and a complete disregard for compassion or even common courtesy! I have NEVER received such treatment in my entire life by a medical professional. His wife, Miss Martha is particularly condescending and should not work with the public.

I do not recommend this Doctor. He misdiagnosed my condition as a bacteria infection and lanced two spots in my arm leaving the massave growth in. He said my body would eventually absorb it. After three office visits and telling me if they don't go away come back in three weeks. When more lumps started to appear I seeked out another surgeon. Turns out I had a microorganism in my body being incapsulated by scar tissue as my body was fighting it off. He's a mess.

Mixa's negligence will soon turn me into a handicapped person. Several years back I went to him 28th a broken atm and foot. He came to the door of the room (an hour late) and said "Don't raise your arm over your head but you can use a computer see you next week". Then he walked away. I figured my foot was not so bad after alI, now it is deformed and I am in constant pain. BEWARE!
DO NOT VISIT THIS DOCTOR!! Misdiagnosis, lies, steals your money, was a full waste of time, find another Doctor asap!

He diagnosed my problem without doing the mri. As a result he told me i had bursitis based on an xray . He prescribed medication for bursitis and said that i would feel better in a couple of days. I did not fell better, Every day the pain grew worse. I ended up in the er on a different matter and it was found out that i had a bulged disc. Quite a big difference in diagnosis. The bulged disc will take alot of rehab and ongoing attention. Attention that dr mixa didn't seem to possess.

Worst doctor I've ever had. No PT needed I was told. Multiple problems after my bilateral knee surgery, that he would not address. He spent my precious 5 minute visits diminishing my problems or telling me they didn't exist. He made assumptions without asking questions and then blame me for problems he did. Never once gave me a physical exam to see if my complaints were valid. Went in many times hoping he'd finally listen, but didn't. Had new Dr. fix problems and others missed with more surgery.

I had an appointment at 2:45. When I arrived there, the two adjacent waiting rooms were more like a zoo then a waiting room. I waited for an hour and when woman announced that she had been there for an hour and a half (her appointment was for 2:00 - 45 mins prior to mine), I decided to leave. When asked if I would like to reschedule, needless to say, I said NO! If the staff would have shown a modicum of courtesy by mentioning that there would be a delay, I could have dealt with that.
