When I was looking for a facility for my hip replacement surgeries, I knew from my experience as a registered nurse that Florida Orthopaedic Institute was my best option. When selecting a doctor, I just wanted someone caring and compassionate; I found that in Dr. Palumbo. He was wonderful! Very caring, understanding and personable, and was exactly what I needed.
Before finding Dr. Palumbo, I battled breast cancer and dealt with months of hip pain. When I went in for my first appointment, I made my goal clear: to be able to walk around the new Wesley Chapel Mall. I was there on opening day.
A few factors made my experiences at Florida Orthopaedic Institute truly exceptional. I was able to speak with Dr. Palumbo’s assistant, Aisha, whenever I needed and she always got right back to me when I would call. She is the best. Additionally, Dr. Palumbo was able to release me from the hospital just a day after my surgery, lessening my risk of infection. Florida Orthopaedic Institute and Dr. Palumbo gave me my life back.
