Patients That Inspire
“” Garrett Scantling, Team USA Decathlete
“The level of care was excellent. Dr. Acevedo listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions thoroughly. He and his team spent as much time with me as was needed; I never felt rushed. The results of my total ankle replacement have been wonderful. I have already recommended Dr. Acevedo to others and will continue to do so.” Bob T.
“I had an amazing experience with Dr. Acevedo and team. I fractured both heels and was referred to him due to his experience. In the hospital right after it happened, I was told I may not play tennis again. It has been four months since the surgery and I am starting to play again. He is gifted, thoughtful, dedicated, and passionate. I showed up for an appt on the wrong day and I was back within 10 minutes. I had a flare up one afternoon; I called, and they had an appt for me at 8 a.m. the next morning. THANK YOU!” Buck W.
“Dr. Acevedo is an excellent surgeon and human being. I have never met a more caring surgeon. He is extremely competent and top notch. Jacksonville is lucky to have him. I am so glad I found Dr. Acevedo after my extensive ankle fractures.” MW
“I wanted to thank you for performing the surgery on my heel for the calcaneus fracture. I was quite a mess when I came to see you. Your confidence in knowing you could help me and guide me to a full recovery was reassuring. I am here to tell you that after two surgeries I am completely healed. Through your skilled hands, your wonderful bedside manner, my determination and God’s grace- I am walking easily and without pain! Thank you so much for all you and your incredible staff did for me. I will never forget!” Melody B.
