When I went to Florida Orthopaedic Institute, it was my second attempt at finding a doctor or surgeon that I trusted and believed that they would be able to improve my quality of life. In 1998, I fell off a thirty-two foot cliff while on patrol sustaining several injuries and I also suffered additional injuries from two explosions in Iraq, in 2003 and 2004 . I could no longer play cards with my family or do pretty much anything without severe pain in my back. I met Dr. Saatman, she and her PA were very professional and honest. She explained the recommended procedure and was very patient in explaining it to me. The surgery, while I was nervous, went great and Dr. Saatman made me feel secure. The surgery was a COMPLETE SUCCESS. I cannot believe the results that I have had, amazing! The recovery was very quick and the pain was not bad at all. The scar is minimal and getting smaller. I cannot say enough good things about this team and the care that I received! I wish she and her PA were general physicians, I would request to be seen by them on a regular basis! Great caring, professional, polite doctors! THANK YOU!
