Eaton Orthopaedics
Don't waste your time with this business (unless, of course, you have a ton of time to waste). Today I had a 3PM appointment. At 4PM, some PA (his assistant) came into the room and talked with me and said that Dr Eaton would be right in. Of course, she didn't say what day of the year that might be. At 4:30PM after an hour and a half wait, and still no doctor in sight, I left the room that I had been waiting and asked the PA how much longer. She advised me that it wouldn't be that much longer, that there were only two more patients ahead of me, and that there had been some kids who had accidents, etc.. She then proceeded to try to pacify me by explaining how Dr Eaton was only in the office on Tues and Thurs, and that it's normal to have a two hour wait to see him. Wow! Really? I'm stunned at that response, but that being the case, why book so many patients on those days? I also know for fact that while I was in the waiting room, another guy came in with a 3:30 appointment, he was taken in ahead of me, and not only that, I heard the doctor go into his room before me. I'm a retired Veteran with Tricare Insurance and can't help wondering if their priority is with patients who have better insurances. In any case, please rethink your visit to this doctor unless you don't mind two plus hours to wait. For me, it's time to find another doctor and staff with a bit more professionalism and common courtesy toward the patients! This experience was a total waste of my time, insurance money (as I'm sure they'll be charging my insurance for a visit even though I didn't get to actually see the doctor), and my patience! Totally unsatisfactory and unprofessional! Oh, and a side note...for as many patients as I saw come in and out of there, and how much money they're making in that office, you'd think they'd have some clean chairs. They have the absolutely dirtiest chairs I've ever seen in a doctor's facility. From the waiting room right down to the patient rooms, the chairs are nasty!!!

I am, four years after the fact, remaining in pain and numbness. Coincidentally, it was exactly the same time I underwent surgery for a bulging disc, done by one of AFLOA's orthopedic surgeons. I awoke in acute pain. Three days later, the surgeon walked into my room and said, " We have to do this again." Upon recovery from the anesthetic, I discovered the pain had been somewhat reduced, replaced by debilitating numbness. I do not recommend this organization.

This facility has treated my daughter, a friend, and myself. The doctor we dealt with (Dr. Swick) was phenomenal. The staff was curteous, friendly and helpful. I've previously been treated at another Orhopedic in St. Pete, and the service was far better at All Florida. No comparison in my mind.

Kmsgcat, I 've been a pt here for many yrs, I 've had 2broken limbs, a knee replacement and several spinal fxers. The Doc's I ve seen have always been kind , professional and accurate in my care. The office staff has been polite professional . Wait times has never been unbearable, as knowing these Docs are called out to traumas at times. I have always found if youbare polite ,you will be treated politely back !

Positively the worst possible medical facility in the state of Florida. The doctor I dealt with was rude and nasty, was more obsessed with my weight than my actual disc herniations. I am only 20 lbs overweight and he carried on like I weighed 300 lbs. Then there was the issue with some menopausal woman in billing name Denise, I have never dealt with such outrageous rudeness and unprofessionalism in my life. She actually YELLED at me. I mean, are ya kidding? Then I got a copy of the report. Looked like an kid typed it, all misspelled words and crappy grammar. What the heck is going on there?? STAY AWAY!

I don't want you to get the wrong impression about All Florida from the other review. My mom had a different doctor, but we had a great experience. Dr. Hirshorn is a caring, knowledgeable and capable physician. Just what any patient would want. I couldn't recommend him more highly.
Tips & Advices
Scoliosis is a disorder where the spine curves sideways. Most people develop the condition during the growth spurt before puberty. The cause of scoliosis is unknown and most cases are mild, but the rare severe instances can disable a person.
Orthopedic surgeons attend four years of medical school, then four to five years of orthopedic residency in a hospital. They must also be licensed and certified in orthopedic surgery by the state in which they practice.
The terms "orthopedic doctor" and "orthopedic surgeon" refer to the same profession. Related specialties include podiatrist, a doctor who works with the bones, tendons and ligaments in the feet, and a sports medicine physician, a doctor specially trained to treat athletes.
The cost of a visit to an orthopedic surgeon depends on the type of tests ordered and treatment given. For example, an MRI costs $500-$1,300. An initial consultation costs $100- $500, while anesthesia for a procedure generally ranges from $2,000-$4,000. Overall, an orthopedic surgery can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000.
During a consultation or first appointment with an orthopedic surgeon, the practitioner will ask the patient a variety of questions to understand the situation. The surgeon might ask about the patient's pain levels, medical history, and any prior injuries. Then, the surgeon will administer a physical exam and possibly schedule tests to better understand the problem. Possible tests include a stress test, x-ray, or MRI.
