The staff at the office were really kind and thankfully have a good sense of humor. They were very professional in all ways and at all times,but willing to listen and share a laugh with me. Dr. Goldsmith is very professionaland seems to really know how to talk To a person,not At a person. I fully trust him and staff to do an excellent job on my hip.

I was dreading this visit as ortho offices are notorious for extremely long wait times. However, I was very pleasantly surprised by the relatively short wait! The office staff, and Dr. Scott were all super friendly and helpful!

Dr. Scott is the best but the wait everytime I go there is always 1 to 1 1/2 hrs just to see him. He's a great Dr. but very frustrating with that long wait.

I was seen at the Plant City by Matthew Smith who was really nice. He has great bedside manners and really knows his stuff. Everything was great up until my discharge. I was given a requisition to make an appointment foran MRI of my left knee. The first requisition was a receipt of a knee brace not a requisition form. So I had to drive back to the office and get the actual requisition form. Then that one had my name wrong and did not have a diagnosis code. Instead of driving back to the office I called instead. I spoke to someone very nice and very pleasant who really understood my frustration he said he was in Brandon office. He not only took care of the requisition form he even faxed it to central scheduling for me with CORRECT information! Then finally I was able to make an appt.

I would highly recommend Dr Scott Goldsmith to anyone looking for an Orthopedic Specialist. His office staff is very on point as well as all of the nurses and various staff through out the back of the office. Just a briefstory about my visit, Dr Goldsmith had directed me to Tiffany who handles all of the scheduling. The only date they had was Feb. 2. As I was leaving, Dr Goldsmith was finishing up with another patient and had asked me if I had the date taken care. I told him the date and his response was no we are going to get you taken care of sooner than that. Now granted that may not happen in every single scenario, but the fact that he took the time to go and speak with Tiffany in scheduling was beyond what he needed to do. He came back out and my new surgery date is now Jan. 5. Thank You Dr. Goldsmith, and your staff for what you do each day.

Did not see Dr. Goldsmith. Had emergency school. Was disappointed that they could not continue treatment. They are not spinal surgeons. Have to find another doctor. Everyone was pleasant. Wife will probably go to Dr Goldsmith for hip replacement.

The Doctor was excellent. There was a problem booking the appointment because they would not listen to me that I was on basic Medicare. They kept insisting that I have an advantage plan and I do not. I got to frustratedand went online to book the appointment. There wasn't an option in the insurance option box for my situation. It took the manager at the office to straighten the problem out.

Doctor Goldsmith was phenomenal. The office staff was less than great however. My appointment was at 3. I arrived 20 minutes early to fill out paperwork but I wasn't even seen by the doctor until 5:15. I wasn't even going towrite this review, but now I stand at the pharmacy where the receptionist said she sent my prescription for pain but they don't have it. I called the office and was transferred to the answering service and was told I won't be able to get in touch with them until Monday when they return. I'm ready to scream. Get it together.

Doctor was great. Very professional and friendly. All but one of the office staff was wonderful. Except for the receptionist. Very rude. No hello, please or thank you. Looked very unhappy. Being a previous office manager of a doctor office,I would not want her to be the first person patient's see. Receptionists should be friendly, polite and at least smile at you when you approach front desk.

To start the doctor was great, friendly, explained things so I understood. My main complaint is the wait. My sons appointment was at 9:15 and we arrived at 9:05, I had all the paperwork already filled out when I arrived, andI know they had the films and referral already. So the wait began. I understand with speicalist that at times there are waits but after it had reached 45 minutes past our appointment time and the fact they were now calling people back that checked in after us I got up to go ask what was going on. While i was in line the lady at the front desk yelled out to my son saying "Kyle did you give me your paperwork?" I stepped into her view and said "yes i already had it filled out when we arrived an hour ago". She started shuffling paperwork and said "oh yes here it is I'm sorry I'll get you back right away". Another 25 minutes went by and 3 more people that arrived after us were called back before we were finally called back. Also during our wait we watched a patient show up check in, get her paperwork to fill out and sit there for 45 minutes filling out all the papers. Then when she took it back up the front desk lady then informed her that they couldn't see her because when her doctor sent the referall they didn't include the x-ray codes or they could see her but she could be responsible for the cost of the x-rays. The lady was now aggetated which I didn't blame her, the front desk lady obviously new this already but let her sit there for 45 minutes filling out paperwork, if she would of told her as soon as she walked in the patient could of called her doctor and got that faxed over while she was filling the papers out. The front desk just seemed unorganized overall. But once we got called back the other staff were great, once I told them how long we had been there because of the mix up they said they would try to get us bumped up. And the again the doctor clearly explained the accurate diagnosis and the treatment we should do and we were very happy.

Scott Goldsmith was excellent doctor. My only constructive observation is that the office DID NOT have any automatic door. Thought that was very strange since people were coming in on crutches, wheel chairs, walkers. And had to try to hold the door open......
