Dr. Samuel S. Messieh's Ratings
He was great and didnt sugar coat my diagnosis and explained my choices but he's compassionate and confident, so that made my decision easier. Its that time again for another procedure and have every confidece and faith in God that gave him the skill to do what he does. His nurse Sherry, is wonderful, but other staff could use a a class in people skills.
I did not have a surgery. I had an injured knee treated. He is the best in our area and I would not go any place else. I used him for a second opinion and he proved to be right. If you need a knee doctor he is the one you need. I found his office people in Winter Haven were very attentive and pleasant. I waited about 10 minutes then I got an x-ray and waited 5 minutes in the doctors office then Dr Messieh treated me and I was out the door. Total time spent 20 minutes. For me that was very good service.
Dr. Messiah is a fantastic surgeon. He really knows how to deal with knee replacements, very skilled. He is very knowledgeable concerning surgery procedures, follow his advice and you will have a better chance at preventing infections and blood clots, two problems with knee replacements. His bedside manner can be rude at times, same with his staff. My wife and I were in the exam room and he went off on both of us, for no apparent reason. I think it's due to the fact that he is so busy, he sometimes is overworked. Still he is a great surgeon and I would recommend him. Just realize you might have a problem with him and his staff in an office visit.
Dr. Messieh has a team & protocol that is top-notch. I can't thank them enough for the relief they have given me already with my new knee (8 wks. post-op). He is definitely the man to see if you're thinking of a knee or hip replacement. Best in the state! Most times appts. were on time, but occasionally there may be emergencies. The office is extremely well organized as is his practice. Best in the state of Florida! :)
I was reffered to this office by my primary doctor for a problem I had with my hand and knee. I called Dr. David Messieh's office to make an appointment and the staff was very, very rude. First I was told rudely that they didn't handle any hand issues ( as if I knew), and then they told me I needed a referral which I told them I had. Then Mary proceeded to rudely tell me that I couldn't hand deliver the referral that it has to be faxed over my my primary Physcians office. They really must think I am a mind reader and should have know ALL their office policies...please. I didn't even bothered to make an appointment. If this is the way they treat me over the phone it can only get worse while I am there in person. STAY AWAY FROM THESE FREAKS!
I thought he was pompous and arrogant. I would not go back to him if he was the last doctor around. He did two cortisone injections in each of my knees which made them hurt so bad I could hardly walk. It was a very discouraging experience.
My mother-in-law had an infection and was in the hospital for two months and then in a nursing home for rehab. In that time period, she had an appt. with Messiah. My wife and I had put a new recording on her answering machine that told to call our home number. This message was completely ignored by Messiah's office staff when they cancelled her appointment! So we drug my mother-in-law out of the nursing home, drove fifteen miles to the doc's office to find it locked up! The person in charge that I got on the phone, Tara, was very rude and explained that they needed a Power of Attorney form filled out and faxed to them...for the change in phone number! And she explained that was why they did not call the new number on the machine! After my wife also talked to them and asked what could she have done differently, Tara refused to answer the question. They did call today to say that my mom was no longer welcomed in the office, but could not call the number previously on my mom's machine!
