I can't believe there was some low stars for Dr. Figuerres! He has been an excellent Dr from my personal experience. Dr. Figuerres even checked on me after surgery on the weekend. I personally wouldn't go off other people's responses because not everyone will be honest. I want to know if they completed physical therapy, rested after surgery or etc. Remember this is just my point of view & I can even admit that I didn't always do what I was supposed to do as well. I have & will continue to recommend Dr. Figuerres.

Dr. Figuerres performed rotor cuff surgery on my left and right shoulders over the course of two years. Excellent surgeon, caring physician and individual. He took the time to address concerns and answered questions at every visit. He also followed up with phone calls after hours and on weekends to monitor my progress. I also appreciated his ability to accurately access my pain threshhold and to safely and effectively treat it accordingly. In addition, my PT group had informed me it was a pleasure to work with Dr. Figuerres .

An excellent surgeon with equally excellent staff. Dr Figuerres has been treating an arthritic hip for 3 years. He listened to my concerns and took time to answer my questions. I had no bruising following my total hip! I reiterate, an excellent orthopedic doctor.

Dr.Ben, is an excellent Doctor, he operated on my knee and years later repaired my rotator cuff. I abhor being cut on but if I have to be, I wouldn't want anyone but Dr. Figuerres. He's one of the kindest Physicians I've ever met. He has good bedside manner, explains things in a way that you can understand. He's very patient. I can't say enough about him and I'm usually not that fond of Doctors but Dr. Figuerres is an exception to the rule... I highly recommend him to anyone requiring surgery...

Dr.Figuerres replaced my husband's acl and neither of us have ever had such an amazing experience in the health care field. My husband has been in several motorcycle accidents (although not the cause of acl surgery) and due to this we have had hospital visits all overt the country. We can both say 100% that Dr.Figuerres was the most compatient, professional and patient Doctor we have ever been to. He even called on Easter to check on my husband and his knee. I'd fly across the country to have him perform surgery on me.
