Dr Maser has the patience that you RARELY find this day and age in a Dr. . He never is in a hurry and always answers questions (even dumb ones in my case) in a way that makes sense. He has done numerous procedures, injections etc.Show more and is STILL patient when I tend not to adhere to his post procedure advice. I have danced around the procedure of finally having him go in and repair my lower back due to the fact that I'm kind of terrified of anyone working on my spine due to horror stories about "botched procedures" and so. Again, he has been MORE than patient and I'm the epitome of a "bad patient " and he still just shakes his head and asks "ya ready yet" to attack the root of my issue. His staff , Susie and Annie have ALWAYS been no less than awesome with my " special requests" and last minute appointments due to the fact that I live in Colorado half the time and here in Florida the other half and they all have been no less than awesome to work with. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I can have any procedure done in either state but I choose to have Maser and his staff here in Florida for all my medical needs. Again, it's rare to find a practice that not only do they remember you by name, they actually treat you with the same familiarity that " old school" way. If your sitting in the fence and not sure... try him and his staff, you will see what I and everyone I have had the pleasure of visiting with in the waiting room have come to experience. I'd give a high 5 if I could

Michael S. • April 29, 2022

Dear Dr. Williams, Every time I go into your offices, I am blown away with the level of compassion and concern that is displayed by every one of your staff. I am truly in awe. On my last visit, it was over the top with the depth oShow moref explanation that you yourself were willing to take the time to describe some of the "what ifs" that can occur in the future. So your tech took more x-rays to show me exactly why and where I am experiencing the pain, not that I am trying to run up the bill, but if the ligaments are missing then that may well mean that I will be somewhat disabled as a result of those issues. For these reasons, am i pleased, I am ecstatic that I have not experienced in a long time. It has been a unique experience to say the least. On a different subject, I was asking one of your associates if there might be a time when I might be able to speak with you. I use a number of different supplements and I cannot get from the telephone agents any kind of information other than these products are not intended to diagnose, treat, prevent or cure any disease. My response to them is, then why am I talking to you at all.Ir is virtually impossible to get in touch with these doctors. All I want is the best product to do the best for by body. Thank you for all that you have done for me thus far. I only wish there were a lot more like you chair-side manner, (bedside just didn't feel appropriate)!

Barbara S. • January 09, 2024

Dr James suggested a blood test (to see if I might have an infection) which no other doctor had suggested. I’m waiting for results.

Nancy B. • December 28, 2023

Fr. James’ office is well run and he gave me excellent care, offering me several alternative treatments.

John B. • December 16, 2023

I highly recommend Dr James. When I came to Orthopedic Specialists I could hardly walk, I’d lost all the cartilage in both of my hips and was in constant pain. One year later, after two total hip replacements, my life’s very different. Now I walk two to three miles a week and dance often, at 77yrs old. Thank you Dr James!!

Jayne N. • December 16, 2023

I was called into the exam room right at my appointment time. The doctor was very prompt once all the information was entered in the computer. He assessed my symptoms and gave me options for treatment. Very positive experience all around

Colleen P. • December 11, 2023

At 79 years of age after 2 hip surgeries I am back performing as I did in my 20's and Thirties with 0 pain. Before I was in 24hr pain. When I went to the mailbox I wasn't sure if I would make it back. Now I do Zumba, Hip Hop 3 times a week. I will be making again a Hip Hop Video for YouTube. I have been a professional on stage performer in New York. I feel like I have another 20 years of unlimited possibilities thanks to Dr Chris James and The Orthopedic Specialist Co.
