Dr Orbangozo is wonderful,professional, yet compassionate. He empathetic, yet careful with my care. Doesn’t over nor under medicate and is very knowledgeable with other treatment options besides medication and thoroughly explains all options of care pertaining to my condition. His staff is also very helpful and knowledgeable. I have recommended him to two more of my family members and they also love him !

Dr. Orbegozo, Heidi, and all the staff at the Fletcher, Sheldon Rd. and the Surgery center are Amazing! All are very approachable, extremely knowledgeable, & always take the time to listen to any concerns & to explain any procedures or problems. I can't believe any of the bad feedback is even half true. Heidi is one of the nicest people in the office & has always taken great care of me when Dr. Orbegozo is booked or in surgery. Yes you might wait 30 mins to an hour but wouldn't you rather he spend that amount of time with you also? I never thought I'd work again in my life, fast forward a few years after following Dr. O's treatment plan and I've just started a new job as of Feb. 3rd. Also, I'm now able to do a lot more with my young son, even simple things like passing a baseball or shooting a basketball with him. Everything Dr. O. has suggested has worked to lower my pain & get back to a better quality of life. Give Dr. O. a call & start feeling better today! Thank you!! John S.

Ive waited 10 months to post this review hoping my back would get better, they say the nerves can regenerate. But they haven't. I've had 3 procedures done with Dr O (5 times at the surgery center under anesthesia) and I can't even begin to tell you how awful that experience was. Waiting sometimes 4-6 hours, having had nothing to eat since midnight the night before, waiting room packed. So they must triple book. And so rude. But I wouldn't have even complained if he hadn't made my back worse than it was to begin with. I was only trying to relieve the stiffness in my legs. When the radiofrequency ablation didn't work he decided to do Laser Surgery, and that's when he destroyed my back. When I left Florida and went back to New Jersey I saw a Pain Specialist who gave me an epidural shot and relieved my pain immediately. He said no one he knows does Laser Spine Surgery, that's a hoax played on the elderly in Florida. I now have to have epidural shots every 3 mo for the rest of my life.

All I can say is LawSuit. People - go anywhere else but here. If you want constant canceled appts, 4 hr wait time before getting in for surgery and the most uncompassionate staff - (Fletcher Location)....book your apt today! and Enjoy the mess! There is a Code of Ethics that every Doctor swears into. It's a shame how unethical the Doctor/Patient Relationship is at this Particular Facility. And Dr. O...…. "Maybe you should look into how many of your patients have been discharged because of your right hand Girl Heidi" and her obvious Superiority Complex......All over an upset patient's constant cancelled appts. I wonder if she's on those meds. Good Luck Dr. Orbegozo “Irrational Heidi" is bad for your Business.

I’ve been under Dr Orbegazo’s care for approximately 4 years. He’s helped me through some tough times and I’m still under his care. I had several major surgeries in NY and came to Dr O from out of state. He answers me quickly every-time I have any questions , whether in office or by phone. He’s an all around good person and not only a great Dr I highly recommend him and his staff Thanks again Dr O

Dr.Orbegozo has been my pain doctor for 2 years and I have 0 complaints , he listens, he explains , and most of all he has plenty of patience to explain why you are in pain and what he will do to fix it. I wouldn't change him even I didn't have insurance i will keep on seeing him .He makes sure you leave that office knowing what is the next step to feeling better .

My experience with Dr Orbegozo has always been positive and caring. I feel that what goes on around him sheds a bad light on him. Again I tell you no one can ever get through to the office no one returns your call. It seems that there’s one manager for multiple offices that is overworked with all she has to handle. Everyone has always treated me with respect and kindness but we go back to the system in place at both the offices and the scheduling at the Havana surgery center. This is not the responsibility of the Dr it’s the responsibility of PPOA and there management. I have spoken to some of the nicest operators who would try every extension only to come back and say I’m so sorry I can’t get anyone to pick up. Every person I run into if at the offices or the surgery center have the same thing to say it’s not the Drs fault but this is really a terrible set up and the problems need to be addressed! I have been told to pass this on from the staff at Habana Surgery and from people at the offices. There are times I know for me I have tried for days to get through left messages that were never returned and this happens to everyone. You are not doing your Drs justice by putting them in a bad light over things they are not supposed to control! My Dr is great the system is not!
