Dr. Figuerres has been a wonderful doctor. He was straight and honest with me about my choices and when I asked him what he would do in my case he told me and then said “but it’s up to you”. I abuse my knees and he has helped me and will again help me.

Saw Dr Figuerres for ankle injury. I am a previous patient of dr Figuerres for knee replacement. He is a great dr. Knowledgeable, kind and caring.

I broke my left shoulder because of a fall. He carefully explained my injury and treatment options. He was kind and really seemed to know his stuff .

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.
