Been down about injury. But it has nothing to do with the treatment or care I have received. People are cruel. I guess that is there nature.they should help out a fellow worker instead of making comments that helps no one but there who. O well what can ya do

Waited about 10 minutes which isn't bad and the Doctor was up front and recommended medication and some rehab prior to going over board whereas some doctors in this field want an MRI and surgery when it may not be necessary.

I chose Dr Francisco because I trusted Atlantis Orthopaedics. I have had both double knee replacement surgery, and reverse shoulder surgery from doctors at that office. I have Total TRUST and Confidence in all of the doctors there. I met DrFrancisco for the first time today and felt very confident in him. I would recommend them to anyone who needs this kind of care.... and I have. Noni B.

The office is poorly managed. The phone rings constantly and is not answered. It can be heard in the waiting room and the exam rooms and this lends for a very unprofessional atmosphere. I have spoken to the office manager andnothing has been done for over two and a half months. The "we're working on that" is totally unsatisfactory.

Although we were a bit late arriving for our 1:30 appt due to transportation delays from the skilled nursing facility, filling out the initial visit questionnaire was very easy via tablets provided by the office. Unfortunately we waited nearly45 minutes before getting into a room. It was another 30 minutes before seeing the doctor Removing the staples, examining the X-Ray took maybe 10 minutes. Overall the visit went well.

This is not my first experience with Dr. Francisco. I saw him for a completely different injury that occurred earlier this year. My son was also a patient of the practice after 1 football practice this August. Dr. Francisco is athorough, considerate and sympathetic physician, which is rare these days. Everyone in the office from reception (where they remember your name) to the last person you encounter before walking out the automated door (who thinks of that? Only people who understand their patients and know they are likely leaving on crutches, in wheelchairs or in casts and in pain), is a pleasure. The surgery center included! I was 40 minutes early for my appointment and they took me in a room within 10 minutes of my extremely early arrival, to remove my surgical splint and sutures prior to being recast by his PA, Tiffany B O' connor, who I highly respect. She answered all of our questions (my husband is a DPT / Doctor of Physical Therapy and had more questions than first time moms). We saw Dr. Francisco and we were in and out within 40 minutes of our early arrival with a smile and a bright pink cast :) We even had time to get a smoothie before carpool which felt like a date after 21 days of keeping my leg elevated and sequestered to the second story! I am not the most graceful person nor do I have the most graceful family. I have broken a few bones, in different countries and on opposite coasts. I can tell you from experience that this is by far the best orthopedist, with the most efficient staff I’ve encountered. I remember after my surgery when Dr. Francisco came to recovery and told me how bad it really was once he got in and he assured me I was going to be ok, that I told him it wasn’t a good business plan fixing repeat customers. BTW- the nurses are amazing!
