Everyone was very professional and pleasant. Every question was answered in terms that were easy to understand, and everything was well managed and scheduled to make the best use of my time and the staff’s time.

Complex trauma ankle surgery at Blake Hospital. This was a follow-up visit, and Dr. Infante was kind and professional.

Robert M.

Dr. Infante is the Best Doctor in town! Very personable, knowledgeable, and easy to get hold of with questions – even better than going through the nursing staff. My Daughter had the best experience under Dr. Infante’s care. Thank you, Dr. Infante!

Joy N.

Dr. Infante is a very good doctor. He is sociable, professional, and caring, and much, much more. He sits down and explains x-rays, tells you the good as well as the possible problems behind all procedures. He is very patient and enjoys a good joke now and then.

Joel D.

Friendly staff, very helpful, and knowledgeable in response to my questions. I am having great results from my knee replacement and would recommend Dr. Infante highly.

Benny B.

Had an initial consultation with Dr. Infante today. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable of my current situation, was friendly, and answered all of our questions. I am grateful for the time he spent with me today. I have a clear picture of what my case holds. I felt as though my case was the most important thing to him while I was in my consultation. Great visit!

Penny H.

Infante, as he’s affectionately known in our family, is caring, kind, skilled, and professional. Thankful he is my knee doctor!

Anita B.

Dr. Infante is both a skilled surgeon and a doctor who listens. Great knee replacement results and patient care. The post-op process was organized in advance by his staff, including all medical equipment and post-op in-home therapy. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr. I wholeheartedly.

Carol P.

Dr. Infante did an amazing job with my father Armando Morales’s knee replacement. The office staff was extremely courteous, and I can’t say enough great things about nurse Brad and the rest of the staff. Highly recommend Dr. Infante.

Joshua M.

I had an appointment with Dr. Infante regarding my knee. He was very cordial but to the point. He explained all of my treatment options, went over my X-rays, and even told me what I could expect going forward. Totally recommend. He will be part of my healthcare team.

Lucy G.

Very happy with the care I receive at this office. Dr. Infante is a great doctor, and all of the staff are kind and efficient. Jenn took good care of me, helpful and considerate.

Jeanne V.

Dr. Infante has been amazing. My 94-year-old mother broke her hip, and he patiently explained things to both of us. He is very thoughtful and obviously a skilled surgeon, as she is pretty much moving around just as good as before the fall.

Leda M.

The staff at FOI is very kind and professional, and Dr. Infante is an awesome Dr. I highly recommend him!

Bobby C.

What a great Dr. Mr. Infante was very friendly, full of joy, and a delight to be around. Not too many doctors are so jovial with his patients and staff.

Iris S.

Compassionate physicians providing the best medical care. The staff is polite, helpful and attentive to their patients. Dr. Infante is my physician and his personality and knowledge far exceed my expectations!

Cheryl L.

I was in a car accident on Christmas Eve. My knee and two places in my tibia were fractures and my ankle was shattered. Dr. Infante was the orthopedic doctor on call that particular day and I thank God that he was the doctor on call. He came to my hospital room to introduce himself and his team to me. He explained everything about my knee, tibia and my ankle. He explained everything he had to do in surgery. I had two major operations. When the final cast came off…my scars were barely visible. Dr. Infante is an artist when it comes to making an incision on your body. The rest of the staff was absolutely amazing. Liz and Teresa, his administrative assistants were fabulous. These ladies went out of their way to help me. Dr. Infante and Austin PA-C are so caring for each and every patient. They really take the time with you so you understand your healing process. Florida Orthopaedic Institute at 560 S Lakewood in Brandon is the best in the world. Thank you Dr. Infante and your staff!

June B.

Very knowledgeable and friendly. Explains in detail. Understanding and the staff is really friendly as well. I would recommend Dr. Infante in a heartbeat.

Outstanding doctor!

Healthgrades Review

I had arthroscopic knee surgery one and a half years ago to fix a meniscus tear and potentially have a partial knee. I was not a candidate for the partial knee at the time due to too much arthritis and will eventually need a total knee. Dr. Infante addressed my issues so well that I know that my total knee surgery will be many years down the road! I have been able to get out and move much more than before and have dropped quite a bit of weight because of it. Thank you, Dr. Infante!

Helen B.

Dr. Infante was very nice and informative. We discussed options that I had tried and results I have had.

Healthgrades Review

Dr. Infante has always been professional and truthful with me about whatever orthopedic problem I’ve had. I’ve had several different joints that required his attention. I see him now for injections in my shoulder. His assistants are nice and knowledgeable as well. They even try to laugh at my bad jokes! I recommend him to anyone with an orthopedic problem.


Thank you for taking care of our daughter’s broken femur. We really appreciate the fast and well done work after this big car accident. Thank you to all the team and St. Joseph Hospital staff.

Osmany A.

Dr. Infante and his P.A., Austin Thompson talk with me and hear my concerns. I was delighted that I qualify for the less invasive hip replacement surgery. Tricia, Dr. Infante’s surgical scheduler is also terrific. She has worked with me over the phone and in-person. All of the pre-appointments are being made in a timely manner and surgery will be a month from this last consult appointment. I highly recommend this team!

I was in a bad car accident and broke my tibia plateau, which is the knee. I didn’t think I was ever going to walk again. I’m here to tell you that I am walking and doing very well. Dr. Infante did a wonderful job and I have minimal scarring from surgery!

Brenda V.

I was in a bad car accident and broke my tibia plateau which is the knee. I did not think I was ever going to walk again. I am here to tell you that I am walking and doing very well. Dr. Infante did a wonderful job and I have minimal scarring from surgery.

Brenda V.

The 1st time for a hip injection and the 2nd for scheduling surgery. My time frame can be a problem since I’m still working. Dr. Infante got me scheduled on one of his days off, so I would have the time to heal before I head back out to sea. This was above and beyond his duty and I greatly appreciated it. Since surgery I have recovered greatly, was riding my bicycle within 2 weeks and walking 2 miles a day after 1 week. After 4 weeks, completely recovered and could return to work without any restrictions.

Healthgrades Review

I fell and crushed my elbow and bones around the elbow, 12 years ago.  Dr Infante repaired it, I had literally no pain.  Six weeks later broke it again.  Dr. Infante again gently and kindly repaired it, only this time in such a way I would not break again. After 12 years I am  still using it like it never happened.  Thanks for a wonderful job done long ago.

Kim B.

My special needs daughter MyKayla was a patient of Dr. Infante she had a multi compound fracture in her left arm. He and his staff worked very well with her special needs and she is still talking about her favorite doctor to this day. Thank you to everyone that had a hand in her care.

Melissa D.

I have been going there 8 months now and Dr. Infante and his team are the best. I know I am in good hands when I go there.

Tricia G.

I fell and broke my wrist while at work and was referred to Dr. Infante by workman’s comp. It took some time to get the needed surgery due to some issues with the hospital and their staff but Dr. Infante was a very proactive advocate for me within the medical system. Dr. Infante and his staff was very supportive and pushed to get what ever was needed to get me schedules as quickly as possible. The surgery day, again the hospital had paperwork issues but Dr. Infante HIMSELF dealt with it and was very assuring to myself and my daughter who was caring for me that the surgery was being done THAT day. The surgery was performed without any problems and I left feeling confident. During the entire process, Dr. Infante took personal time to meet with me and my daughter as well as did Nicole his PA. I can not say enough about my POSITIVE experience with Dr. Infante and his staff. Liz his administrative assistant was also an invaluable asset to the office. She went out of her way to make sure paperwork was faxed and available during the numerous problems that arose due to the hospital. Although I NEVER plan to break another bone…..should I, I would again travel the hour plus to have Dr. Infante as my doctor and recommend him to EVERYONE that needs trauma care. Thank you to Dr. Infante, Nicole, Liz and the rest of the staff that touched my life during this surgery. Y’all are the BEST!
