Friendly and efficient staff. They get you in and out. they are easy to schedule with. Their website manages all of your notes from each visit. This was useful for me so I could keep track of my treatment. On site surgery with out patient care.
I was in a major auto accident and totaled the car. Was taken to the hospital with Trama alert. Fortunately the Orthopedic in the hospital was Dr. Swick I am extremely grateful to have been seen by him. I am impressed with him. I have been to another St Petersburg clinic and they were just trying to make a surgery procedure of me. Went to Vanderbuilt Med clinic and was told surgery was 100% out of question and risked 70% permanent loss of left arm.
Dr. Swick is absolutely right about Orthopedics and would recommend him 100%.

First, Dr. Jennifer Burns. If I could adopt her, I would. In 2006, She was the first doctor to take my backache complaints seriously. After testing, she discovered I had Scoliosis and a number of other underlying issues. She frankly told me surgery was not an option, but could do procedures that would definitely help. And she did just that. I may have to have the procedure repeated a couple times a year, but who wouldn’t opt to have 5-6 months of minimal and controlled pain in exchange for a 1/2 hr. procedure? She listens. She gets it. She’s awesome. Next, Dr. Beery and Dr. Nguyen. Kudos to both of these doctors! While Dr. Beery is methodical and compassionate, Dr. Nguyen is more a “get it done” professional. When my hands became painful and cramping severely, Dr. Beery did nerve conduction studies and subsequently, I met with Dr. Nguyen. He did a tendon release near the left elbow and a tendon release in the wrist. It was the easiest surgery I have ever gone through and my left hand is now nearly healed and the pain is nearly gone. Just Wow! I will always be grateful that I was referred to these amazing physicians at All Florida Orthopaedic Associates. I would be disappointed if I ever have an issue that takes me outside of this group

Dr Canizares is a wonderful surgeon. The All Florida Orthopaedic surgery center is staffed with kind, attentive people that take the time to treat each patient with care. They have a great balance of efficiency and personalization that makes a stressful day nicer.
Their physical therapy department is awesome. Crystal put me with Carrie. I explained I had a pinched nerve in the l/5 region. She gladly helped me over the next several weeks.
– She used hot towels
– minor exercises and some required by YOU to do at home
– 30 minutes bike time
– back massage and working on the loosening the skin
– constant communication
– bike time at a slow pace
– You are expected to be on a at least once a week schedule.
– and much more!
They’re big on PREVENTING surgery to your back which is what I wanted.
The great majority of the folks who work here are friendly and most of the time will gladly help you.
The result? My back no longer gives me issues and is fixed!
Carrie Zilbauer, Crystal Jimpie and Dr. Burns are my heroes!
I highly recommend AFO for ANY issue with your back!

I spent six weeks, three times a week with the nurses who changed my bandages, Jerome and Kyle were the best. Lastly, I’m in therapy at their facility and Carrie had taught me to walk. I would recommend highly this facility”.

“For over 2 years Dr Canizares helped me put off knee replacement .We did several rounds of shots which reduced the pain substantially. When I could no longer stand the pain we scheduled the surgery He and his team did a great job of getting me ready for surgery .The exercises he recommended really helped my recovery .The day of surgery he made me feel very relaxed and confident .He and his team in the operating room did a great job .After surgery in the hospital the follow up was very helpful and answered all of my needs .He recommended Bayfront for the surgery and their in hospital rehab .That was a great decision .With their help and a dedication to pushing the recovery I was totally released from rehab in 7 weeks and walking without any limp PAIN FREE..I also appreciated that when i had an appointment at their offices they were on time virtually no wait .The only regret I should have had the surgery sooner .I can recommend this team without reservation .They are the best. “
