I have been coming to Orlando Orthopaedic for several months, finally having back surgery September 1st. You’ve been great, but I am writing to comment on the overall experience of dealing with your organization. As a patient, I don’t see just you, but rather you bundled inside layers of procedures, staff and assistants. All valuable and necessary parts of the process, but too often a frustrating and unpleasant journey before you get ‘to see the Wizard’.” As I came to your office more often, I started to recognize that everything seemed to be consistently done well. Sort of like when I first went to Disney and wondered, ‘how do they get every little thing right?’ Your folks do.
It’s said you can feel someone smiling over the phone. I don’t know if they’re grinning when I call, but no one is frowning and have always seemed genuinely interested in helping me. The front desk, the PT folks, even those you hide the pain management dungeon, all have been remarkably sincere and helpful. The Patient Care Team (Lori) was especially pro-active in getting my surgery set up. What is so remarkable to me though, is how folks make it all work, consistently. Outstanding individuals are rare enough, but everyone doing their part is so noticeably well, seemingly every time, is truly an accomplishment. My gratitude and admiration to everyone. — Don N.
