  • “Dr. Pitts it straight to the point about the surgery and what is going to take as far as recovery. Yes, very professional bedside manner it makes you feel comfortable about the procedures you’re going to have.

  • “Dr. Kramer is an excellent doctor. He is calm and relaxed. I think he fixed my knees very good - I was kind of shaky about getting them done but after he did the first one I had no worries letting him do the second one!”

  • “Initially, I saw Dr. Burke because I had seen him previously for the same shoulder pain which he treated with a shot and physical therapy. I was so impressed with Dr. Burke, a surgeon who could have easily recommended surgery. I had a fall and the same pain in the same shoulder. This time Dr. Burke was returning to practice after a health problem he had experienced. He reviewed my test results and feared a surgery might be needed this time, and he was not cleared to the or yet, so he referred me to Dr. Hulsey. A very professional move in my opinion and again I was very impressed with Dr. Burke. Dr. Hulsey reviewed my case, and because of my age (80) and the type of injury, he recommended we try physical therapy before surgery. Once again it worked, and no surgery was necessary. I can't say enough good things about your team. Everyone was so professional and put the patient first. Especially Drs. Burke and Hulsey. I have no doubt that had surgery been necessary; I could not have been in better hands!”

  • “I had seen Dr. Schmidt before he joined your organization. He's a very caring, compassionate physician and it broke my heart to have to tell him that I was having my records transferred because I felt like a number in your organization. Everything seemed to have been done by text message except answering questions! I'm not a computer or text illiterate; it's just that when I'd ask a real live person a problem, I'd get an answer. I don't recall ever having the answer to a texted question — end of the report. I'm thrilled with Dr. Martin now. Thank you for asking.”

  • “Years ago my mother saw Dr. Hulsey about her shoulder, and he advised she had to have surgery- she was leaving to go back to Boca Raton and asked if he could find her a Doctor in her area. When she called him he told her he found a top shoulder Doctor at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville and that he had already spoken to him and sent her records- you don’t find many doctors who do this. Dr. Hulsey has performed surgery on my shoulder and trigger thumb and will be performing knee replacement surgery. I highly recommend him.”

  • “I had surgery for a torn meniscus. I also had a slight fracture. By the second day, I no longer needed a walker. I only needed three physical therapy appointments. The surgery performed was top notch.”

  • “Dr. Hulsey was very thorough examining my situation. He showed me a picture of the X-Ray of my right knee and prescribed physical therapy to control the pain, and it worked. Dr. Hulsey also suggested that I see a neurologist, which I did. The neurologist did tests of my nerves and atrophying of my left calf primarily. After reviewing all the test results, the neurologist recommended that I see a neurosurgeon, which I did. On October 18th, the neurosurgeons did spinal surgery which cleaned out the spinal canal, removed two collapsed disks, replaced the discs with two donor wedges at L2 and L3, enlarged the exit holes are the lumbar spine, and placed rods supporting L2, L3, and L4. I got fitted with a back brace which I wore daily for three months. Following the removal of the back brace, I was provided a SpinaLogic device, which I use for 30 minutes daily and will continue for a total of nine months. The method is to improve the fusing of the vertebrae. No bending, lifting heavy objects, or twisting! Thank you very much for starting the ball rolling.”

  • “Dr. Kramer performed a total knee replacement two years ago. The surgery went very well. Dr. Kramer has a beautiful bedside manner; he has a very gentle and relaxed way of explaining how the procedure gets done and after the surgery stops by to make sure everything is ok. All follow up visits are fast, but he shows you what has done and what to expect.”
