Excellent care!!

I recently had surgery on my hand and the rose in the recovery room helped lessen the pain--thank you! It was beautiful and inspired me to use my fingers. Thank you Dr. Richards for operating to restore my hand!

Forever thankful to the OSSWFL staff

Dr. Richard's and the nurses were so nice to me. I am only 22 so the fact that I am already having pain and arthritis has been really hard for me emotionally. They are all so sweet and make me feel as though they are determined and confident that they can help. Just the fact that they care has made all of this a lot more bearable. I was crying after the appointment and the nurse was willing to hug me and just totally changed my day. I felt so scared and alone and she was gifted enough to understand what I needed at the time, she talked with me about my fears and told me that they are there to help me. Thank you so much Orthopedic Specialists of SWFL and for Dr. Richards as well as Dr. Leach for providing me with the best care and the sweetest staff.
