BORN Testimonials

Dr. Born performed a “massive” rotator cuff repair on my shoulder in August. Seven months post-surgery, I have 98% range of motion and I am back to playing golf! I highly recommend these great surgeons and physical therapists.

I had extensive shoulder/arm damage, one of the worst cases Dr. Born had seen. He was unsure if repair would be successful or if shoulder replacement was needed. After 6 hours of surgery, weeks of rest, weeks of rehab, my arm is as good as new. Dr. Born repaired all damage & surprisingly, my preexisting carpal tunnel syndrome was gone despite that not being a part of my surgery. He is kind, friendly, an outstanding surgeon & makes sure the patient understands everything about their situation

Dr. Born and his team in Sarasota and in Lakewood Ranch have treated me with courtesy and respect! Both offices are very clean (historic art is awesome). Dr. Born is very thorough in his explanation of his diagnosis and treatment, he doesn’t talk down to you. He printed out stretching exercises for both my back and shoulder for me to do at home and that’s been very helpful in my treatment in lieu of physical therapy. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND DR. BORN!!!

As a result of a fall I was faced with a fractured right shoulder. At age 86 I assumed my tennis playing days were over. Dr. Born assured me that as I was in good physical condition he felt he could repair the condition with surgery. A good outcome would depend on my following an extensive physical therapy program. I did as he recommended and I have made a full recovery. I am impressed with Dr. Born’s professional competence and his caring manner with an elderly patient.

FURMAN Testimonials

I have seen Dr Furman twice for my right knee due to osteoarthritis. He is an ace at giving cortisone shots! He is very personable & informative. He has same day appointments which was a blessing for me. He will be honest with you that if he recommends a procedure & if he is not to perform it, he will refer to another physician. I would highly recommend him to my family & friends.

Dr Furman treated me for hip pain and I am a new person as a result of his precise and caring skill. He is a kind, helpful person, and I would recommend him very highly for consult if you want an honest opinion on anything orthopedic.

GRAHAM Testimonials

Dr Graham strikes a great balance between clinical rigor and patient-based care. He rapidly establishes both a rapport with the patient and his standing as a top-tier expert in his field. I had initially asked to see another surgeon who had been referred to me by a colleague in the medical profession. He was booked out for months. I am supremely satisfied with the fact that Dr Graham could see me. In fact, I feel fortunate that things worked out the way they did. See Dr Graham!

Dr. Graham is a miracle worker. I’ve had callouses for years. I saw a different podiatrist who only temporarily helped me. The callouses are gone after seeing Dr Graham! So thankful.

Dr. Graham is a professional, caring doctor who takes the time to explain your condition and how best to treat it. He never cuts the visit short but takes the time to answer any questions you have making sure you understand what he is doing for you. You can trust that he will give you the very best care. I am very glad he is my doctor.

Dr. Graham is a very caring and compassionate doctor. He completed two corrective surgeries on my feet and after almost two years I am back in shoes. He is a wonderful surgeon.

LENTO Testimonials

If I could give Dr. Lento 10 stars I would. I trust him completely with the medical care for my bone on bone knees. Everything he suggested and prescribed in the way of treatment I have done, and the results are amazing. He listens and takes time to address questions. He really thinks about the best approach for dealing with my problem, with the least invasive, “do no harm” treatment. He is phenomenal!

Dr. Lento is a terrific doctor….knowledgeable, professional, informative and highly skilled. I have seen him for knee and shoulder pain. His goal is to eradicate pain in the least invasive way and I have been completely satisfied with my treatment and outcomes. I highly recommend him!

A great help with a protruding lumbar disc and severe sciatica. Arranged for epidural injection without delay! Very good bedside manner, included my wife in discussion, answered questions. Did not rush us.

He was the first step in treating my rotator cuff pain. He listened, no rush, examined, and came up with a plan. Explained goals. Answers questions so that you understand. Bottom line, successful outcome. Would recommend to see Dr. Lento first, before pursuing surgery.

MANDEL Testimonials

I want to thank Dr. Mandel. I at the age of 49 have never had surgery or even a broken bone. Dr Mandel made me feel so confident knowing I would have to have surgery on my ankle. Hearing this I cried like a baby, but he assured me I would be fine. Four days post-surgery I’m very pleased. He took the time and comforted me. Thank you Dr Mandel!!

Dr Mandel was great. He explained things very well and gave me a chance to ask questions. He was very genuine and caring. Another doctor recommended surgery for my ankle fracture and I just didn’t trust the plan. Dr Mandel told me I could do just as well without surgery and he was right!! Back to playing tennis last week!!

Dr Mandel made my 14 year old daughter feel comfortable during office visits and surgery. We were thankful to have him do her surgery.

Kotcharian Testimonials

Dr Kotcharian led me down a good path with consultations and his diagnosis. He has been patient with me every step of the way with his experience in treating me as an individual and listening to me describe my pain and my job situation. His office has been great as well in helping me my billing questions and getting me quick office visits as I needed them. Dr Kotcharian has been there for me and my needs. It’s actually nice to see a doctor who puts his patients first.

I have been seeing Dr. Kotcharian for my neck pain. He is professional, has a warm and caring bedside manner and most importantly, completely alleviated my neck pain. He takes the time to listen and genuinely cares for his patients. His nurse is sweet and professional; they make a great team. I strongly recommend Dr. Kotcharian, trust him fully, and am blessed to be in his care.

Dr. Kotcharian is a very sympathetic physician who takes time to listen to your concerns. His bedside manner is outstanding. I have seen him a few times for injections, and each time he explains the procedure step-by-step and explains what to expect. He is very responsive to emails and phone calls. I would recommend him in an instant to my family and friends.

Dr Kotcharian is a very thorough, compassionate physician. Takes detailed history, paying attention to complaints and symptoms. Not a physician who will dismiss your symptoms and complaints. Listens amazingly well and responsive. Highly recommended. After seeing three different physicians for my back and six MRIs this is the physician who accurately diagnosed me and ordered the correct imaging to reveal my pathology. As a fellow physician, this is who I trust with my back.

PAGE Testimonials

In February I fell and broke my left shoulder. I contacted Dr. Page who examined my shoulder, He diagnosed and made a recommendation for surgery, carefully explaining the procedure in terms my husband and I could understand. After surgery, I was in physical therapy the following week. In less than three months, I regained most of my mobility back and my shoulder continues to improve. The surgery was a complete success. The nurses and office staff were very competent and helpful. I would recommend Dr. Page without reservation.

My daughter fell off her horse with multiple injuries to her left leg requiring surgery… The surgeries were more successful than we dared to hope! His work was tremendous and her leg is recovering well. He made it a point to not give up until she had her full movement back and the repairs were solid. He answered our many questions clearly and honestly. He was not pressured by us to “hurry things along,” while at the same time, was flexible when he felt it would not interfere with her progress. His assessments of the situation at each step were measured, well researched and appropriate. I highly recommend Dr. Page and his team for complex orthopedic issues!

Having ruptured my quadriceps tendon in Arizona, Dr. Page was able to see me that same week and scheduled surgery for the following week. Dr. Page was very thorough in explaining the procedure and anticipated recovery. He is very experienced in his field of orthopedics and I would recommend him to anyone. Also, it is a great comfort to have the PT facility in the same location as the Dr. It is reassuring to see the communication between both PT and physician.

Love everything about this practice. Staff is extremely helpful. Dr. Page is an awesome surgeon. As a former nurse, I highly recommend him as an Orthopedic Surgeon.

RAYE Testimonials

I’m very pleased with my experience with Dr. Raye. He’s professional, knowledgeable, prompt, and always courteous. I’ve been under his care for a lengthy process and would choose him as a doctor all over again. His assistant and the surgery coordinator are also great. Both are helpful, efficient, and easy to contact. Five stars to the whole office.

I highly recommend Dr. Raye. I have found him to be a caring physician who takes the time necessary to fully listen to your concerns regarding symptoms and to discuss treatment options.

Dr Raye is an excellent physician. Understanding and listens. He does what is best for the patient. Highly recommend.

SILVERSTEIN Testimonials

Dr. Silverstein is the best, he figured out my hip problem when no one else could. I had TRH replacement and for the first time in almost 5 years I can walk up the stairs with no pain. I can sleep without that terrible pain that kept me up all night. I owe him so much, thank you doctor. If you want a new, young doctor who treats you like a human being Dr. Silverstein is that doctor.

After having the same Orthopedist for years I was very hesitant and nervous to go see a new one. After 5 minutes with Dr Silverstein I was put at ease, so much so I scheduled a full hip replacement. The hip replacement was such a success that now Dr Silverstein is doing my knee. I have complete confidence in Dr Silverstein and will highly recommended him to anyone who may need any type of orthopedic services.
