As a presently retired physician, I must emphasize my own personal experience with Dr. Garcia. I have known Dr. Garcia personally and the staff of Orthopedic Care Center for the past 14 years. If any of my former patients had ever needed a referral for an Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in spine surgery, I would only send them directly to Dr. Garcia without any hesitation whatsoever. I have personally been in the O.R with him at Aventura Hospital to view him perform the same surgery that I was scheduled to undergo in the next month. For almost five hours straight I stood there in complete amazement while carefully observing everything that he was doing from a nearby distance. I wanted to learn as much as I could not only as a physician but most importantly as a patient. At the end of the procedure I believe that my words to Dr . Garcia was, “ Thank you sincerely for allowing me the privilege to be present during this procedure. I will never tell myself ever again that I had a hard day at the office after watching what you have just done for your patient.” Going through Orthpaedic spine surgery is not an easy thing to do as a patient. However, considering that I have the knowledge as a former patient and a retired physician, that Dr. Garcia never recommends spine surgery until all other treatment options were explored first as alternatives to undergoing surgery. When I was a patient of his for a few years due to a severe motor vehicle accident in 2004, I had to undergo two spine surgeries between the years of 2005-2006. Dr. Garcia was always very ethical, honest, caring and very straightforward with any questions that I had about anything whatsoever regarding my spine injuries. I am very aware that after reading some of the present reviews that Dr. Garcia’s office waiting room can be lengthy at times, very lengthy . However, as a patient you need to understand that the wait time is not only due to the fact that there are other amazing Orthpedists in the practice and most importantly that while any Orthopedic Surgeon has an office visit with a patient than that appointment can NOT be rushed, expedited or hurried in any way possible. Especially when it comes to spine surgery the physician must carefully, accurately and diagnose each patient properly before other patients can be accommodated. I have to admit that I have waited for as long as three hours in that waiting room to see the doctor but there’s an old expression that I truly believe in which states that good things will come to those who wait. Dr. Garcia may presently be a defense expert witness for insurance companies but that has not always been the case. Due to his overall expertise, dedication and commitment to the injuries sustained and overall very strong ethical qualities as an Orthopedic Surgeon , I can honestly say that if it had not been for Dr. Garcia I may not be able to live my present life being able to survive without having permanent paralysis due to spinal cord injuries. Thank you and best regards to staff at Orthopedic Care.
Thanks to him i walk
Doctor Garcia gave me my life back. After struggling with debilitating back issues due to faulty artificial discs and failed back surgeries it was doctor Garcias world class knowledge and expertise that finally made the difference. Not only is Rolando Garcia a wonderful human being he is probably the best back surgeon in the entire country, and I don't say that lightly. When other doctors couldn't help me it was doctor Garcia who not only helped me, he literally saved my life by giving me the ability to function for the first time in 16 years. I highly recommend doctor Garcia to anyone dealing with back issues.
If you want to seat in the lobby and not see the doctor this is the perfect place. However, you can see him walk by thought the little window. When I booked my appointment I made it very clear that my time is as important as the doctor, so I asked for an appointment that wouldn't make me wait forever and ever. After two hours I got up and left.
