Dear Dr. Volk,

I just want to say “Thank You” for giving me so much of my life back. I am doing things now that I haven’t been able to do in years!

Thank you

Aletris E.

My treatment at Orthopaedic Associates has not only helped me recover from my injuries, but as helped me become a stronger athlete all around.  Dr. McClone and Adam (PT) are instructive in their care.  They both took time to relate to and teach me rather than talk at me.  They are second to none!

Doctor Haycook,

Thank you, thank you

Hello Dr. Grimes,

I just wanted to write you a brief “thank you” note of appreciation for the hip replacement surgery that you performed on me in late 2006. I have been hiking and biking in many countries around the world free of pain. Check out this photo of me In the Stirling Ranges, SW Australia, note the good hip strength and flexibility! Again, I am forever grateful for your fine surgical skills. May you live long and healthfully!

Sincerely,

Bruce F.

Dr. Hort,

My husband and I want to thank you and your lovely team in the care I received in my operation. You did such a wonderful job on my foot. I am so grateful that you were my surgeon. Thank you for having me as a patient.

Thank you all

Dr. Kasraeian,

As a competitive dancer I spend more than 24 hours each week training. Last April and again in November, I had an ankle and later on a knee injury. I was really scared since my competition season was about to begin. You took the time and explained everything to me and helped my understand my injury as well as how you were going to make it better. We decided not to operate and with the help of a lot of physical therapy my ankle and knee were healed. I’m happy to say that this past July I attended the Hall of Fame National Dance Competition and my number won First Place Overall in the Teen Division.

Thank you so much!!!

Dear Dr. Stark,

I wanted to write and thank you so much for a successful operation on my right hand for carpal tunnel syndrome. As you can see by this small token of my appreciation, I am able to knit without numbness and pain in my hand, and can now sleep through the night instead of being awakened by pain.

Thanks again!

Please extend my deepest appreciation to Doctor Beth S. Pearce, DPM, for helping me to overcome 11 plus years of pain and suffering. Dr. Pearce is the only physician in 11 plus years who has understood my pain, discomfort and treated the cause, not the symptoms.

I am very fortunate to have made an appointment to be seen by Dr. Grimes. He immediately told me the person most qualified to ease my pain without surgery was Dr. Pearce. I will be forever grateful for his recommendation. Dr. Pearce is a miracle worker and she has won my trust, admiration and respect.

Dr. Grimes did a total knee replacement surgery for me six weeks ago. Everyone involved with the surgery and recovery in the hospital were great. Dr. Grimes came up to the hospital room after surgery and explained what he did and answered any questions before he left. I felt the surgery went great. I was up and walking the same day. Physical therapy several times a week helped get me back to work and normal activities very quickly. If you are dealing with constant knee pain every day I would recommend seeing Dr. Grimes about knee replacement.

My first appointment was an evaluation with Geordie Grenier, the PT specialist who would become my regular PT session supervisor. He was concerned, engaged, and positive from the start; looking at the proverbial glass representing my recovery via PT as “half-full” rather than “half-empty.” Twice weekly I attended my PT sessions and did the required stretching and exercises at home, anything to avoid surgery! During my PT sessions at OAOSA I was greatly impressed by all the PT staff, they were cheerful, caring, and encouraging despite patients who were not having very good days.

Thank you so much Geordie…I can now walk heel-to-toe with comfort. It is such a relief to be active again!

Dear Dr. Hort,

March 9th was the one year anniversary of my surgical procedure which you performed in order to correct the work of a previous surgeon was well as to end the constant pain I had been enduring for many years.

I am happy to report that the surgery was a wonderful success. I am pain free, and back to a very active life style including walking, dancing, exercising…all the things I was unable to do for so many years.

All my best

Joan L.

Dr. Volk,

I appreciate the care that yourself and the entire staff showed during my care. My shoulder is as good as new both inside and outside of the arena. I am able to rein perfectly while shooting and carry on the usual schedule I had before injury. I couldn’t be happier with the care I received.

Dr. Grimes,

Knowing you would make anybody grateful. Thanks for… knee surgery. You are the “bomb.com”. Thank you for such excellent care.

Sincerely

Karen K. (Registered Nurse)

Dear Dr. Grimes,

I literally can NOT thank you enough for squeezing me in to surgery last year – I think I was actually your last procedure of 2016! Wow! You must use a magic wand in the O.R. I’m doing great!! Doing much better than I ever imagined.

Your expertise is AMAZING and so greatly appreciated!!! Thank you for doing what you do – Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, and thank you again!

Dear Dr. Volk & Arlow,

I wanted to thank you for your gentleness and understanding during my recent knee surgery. I was very nervous and both of you had a very calming effect on me. It was so easy! I was up and walking unassisted the day after surgery and not pain. I will forever be singing your praises. Thanks so much!

Sincerely

Kathy S.

Please forward this message/photo to Dr. Kasraeian at the CR210 office, with our thanks for working with our daughter Caroline to heal her sprained foot in March-
We were up against a tight deadline for healing… as she had an international rhythmic gymnastics meet to compete in just 4 weeks after spraining her foot

He prescribed the right amount of rest – and physical therapy — So not only was she able to compete in the meet… but she beat out 24 other girls in her level to win
First Place All-Around!

Thanks Dr. Kasraeian!

My name is Madison and I am a NCAA Division II All American swimmer at the University of Tampa. I started competitive swimming for the Sea Devils at the Willie Galimore Center when I was 10 and continued as a Yellow Jacket for St. Augustine High School. I was injury free until my junior year when I was diagnosed with a shoulder impingement. Training changes, physical therapy, and cortisone shots allowed me to finish my freshman year of college and make it to Nationals.

That summer due to continued pain I went to see Dr. Grimes at Orthopaedic Associates of St. Augustine, where I was diagnosed with a rotator cuff and labrum tear necessitating surgery. Post operatively I was unable to use my arm swimming for the next 5 months; I developed my legs and did land training. I eventually got back swimming with a vengeance, achieving personal bests in the 50, 100, 200 freestyle and accepting an invitation to swim at Nationals.

My success is multi-factional but directly the result of the surgical skill of Dr. Grimes and his staff at Orthopaedic Associates of St. Augustine, Ryan Hemelt in physical therapy, and personal hard work.

Dear Dr. Grimes,

I want to thank you for an outstanding total knee replacement. I now walk and climb stairs better than I have in 20 years…straight and with complete confidence…without any support or aid.

Thank you

Dr. James Grimes,

I wanted to send you this brief e-mail with a picture showing me Skiing on a Slalom Ski in Summer Haven Florida, after my right side hip replacement. The picture demonstrates the strength, balance, and flexibility that has been restored since you did my surgery. I am almost 60 years old, was walking the next day, back to work full time at 3 weeks, back to Bikram Yoga, Surfing, and Spinning at 9 weeks, and Water Skiing at 14 weeks, which I started when I was 12 years old.

My life is completely back to normal exercising 6 days a week, with no pain or adverse conditions. My current activity level and positive mental attitude are a direct result of your state of the art, leading edge Anterior surgery techniques.

I had never been in a hospital, or broken a bone before, so deciding surgery was a scary decision.

The staff at Orthopaedics Associates of St. Augustine, Physical Therapy with Ryan Hemelt, and Flagler Hospital were very Professional, Caring, and have allowed me to return to my original life.

Thank you very much

Paul H.

Thanks Dr. Hort,

What you did was amazing! You went above and beyond, you gave your time and energy, you did anything and everything you could and all I can say is…YOU ARE THE GREATEST!!!

Thanks

Robbie R.

Dear Dr. Kasraeian,

Just a note to let you know how very impressed my husband and I are with your bedside manner, the time you spent tirelessly on researching a resolution to my hip fracture complicated by my metastasized breast cancer in the bones, networking me with the best surgeon possible, and your professionalism.

Surgery was very successful and the post-op follow up very positive. The bone pathology report indicated no cancer activity. We encourage you to continue your professionalism.

Sincerely

Roberta & Fred W.

Dr. Pearce,

This is a note to say thank you. Prior to you performing the radio frequency nerve ablation procedure I could not keep a shoe on due to the pain and constant numbness and/or tingling. Since having the procedure, the foot is 80% improved. It is quite freeing to be able to walk barefoot or with a shoe and not anticipate pain with each step. I am grateful that you recommended trying this procedure before jumping into surgery.

Warm regards

Robin T.

Dr. Pearce,

Just a little something to thank you for all that you have done for me.  You sincerely helped me in every possible way to rid the pain I had endured from my accident.  I gratefully appreciate having had you for my doctor.

Many thanks

Dr. Hort,

I can’t thank you enough for all you have done for me. Walking without pain for the first time in years in wonderful!

Thank you

Teresa T.

Dr. Kasraeian,

On February 20th of 2016 I was in a motorcycle accident and subsequently was taken to Flagler Hospital in Saint Augustine, FL, where you were assigned as my Orthopaedic Surgeon. The fate that day of becoming your patient was most fortunate and I will be forever grateful at the incredible work that you did on my left arm. I wanted to take the time to not only thank you but also the entire staff that I have encountered every time I have had an appointment at your office. Always professional, welcoming and making sure that I was always taken care of.

Dr. Grimes is the only reason I can bust out the workouts like I do. I have sent my entire family just about and many friends to this place. My uncle Russell Showalter most recently. And of all the people have sent all I’ve gotten is positive great feedback. Top-notch Medical Care and wonderfully caring human beings. And it’s all in one place you don’t have to go to different labs, etc.

Dr. Haycook,

Thank you for giving me my life back. I’ve been recommending you to everyone I know of!

Always Grateful to You!
