I recently had a total hip replacement completed on my left side , i waited too long to see the DR. mainly because i was being treated by another orthopedic DR> with injections I finally asked for a referral to DR. Messieh .I can not tell you how well i was treated by everyone in the office , Dr. Messieh replaced my hip at 7:30 am and i was walking down the hall at noon the same day the anterior surgery method is the only way to go and the Dr. is very proficient at it I was one night in the hospital and home with visits from home health care nurses , the nurses that visited my home said I wish all my patience were from Dr. Messieh needless to say i am very pleased and am actually looking forward to my other hip replacement in a few months
Dr. Messieh did a good surgical job on my hip replacement, but he is a very arrogant person. On my follow up visits, instead of giving words of encouragement, he denegrates my progress telling me after one week I should no longer need the use of a cane. After one month, again in a very rude way, he says I should be walking 2 miles a day, not even taking into account the other health issues I have. Not every one recovers at the same rate. I think he needs to learn how to encourage is patients instead of denegrating them.
Friday Febuaryl 6th, doc and his team went into my right hip and removed 4 screws, a plate and rod with a pin.
They then installed my new hip.
Saturday the 7th I was sent home.
At 4:30pm, I was enjoying Happy Hour on our front porch with 12 neighbors three of whom had either a hip or knee replacement by the doc.
THANKS DOC, YOUR THE GREATEST!
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.
