How I was treated by Dr Michael Black by
I honestly would not reconmend Dr Michael Black, I feel as a proffessional he is suppose to be to his patience and not doing his job but acting towards me and quit suprise this person is a Dr in his proff\ession, Not a caring Dr when a patient comes to pay for a service and acts like a total jerk towards me. I hope no one visits this Dr i dont reconmend him a very bad Dr and I will consider changing drs cause of him.
not very nice by
I went to Dr.Dupay jr because my left knee that i had surgery on 4 yrs ago(surgery by a different doc)is now hurting every day not just once and a while like it use to.They took x rays said the bones look fine.but this doc was RUDE!!I Ive never walked out of a doctors office ever feeling so bad about the manner in wich that doc spoke to me.he said no need for an mri.what i told him was to non sepcific. just exercise more or he could give me a shot in the knee.Take Ibuprofin for the swelling.Maybe its just wearing down,maybe arthritis maybe im sitting a way thats causing it.I quit walking the dogs because it would make my leg hurt more but he says walk the dogs exercise.I asked him about how the more i do makes it hurt more then my ankle and foot hurt.ok .He didnt seem to like me asking him anything and made me feel like i was wasting his time.Ive never felt like this before with any other doc.So ill do what he says take ibuprofin 3x aday 600 mlgrmseach time and excersise more.When i decided to make this appointment it was because my leg was hurting so much and my family said i better take it easy on it and not damage it more.i took it easy leg hasnt been as bad but im going to do what Dr.Dupay says take ibuprphin and exercise.Hope it dosnt get worse.Although Dr Dupay was so rude!I would like to say the staff in the office was GREATThey do great wth paperwork and are very nice.But i wont be talking with mean old Dr.Dupay!!!not going there because he just makes you feel terrible and a wast of his time.for the swelling

I was refered to Dr. Black and was very impressed with him on my very first visit!!! Dr. Black was so reasuring on what he said he would have to do to correct what was wrong with my feet. I was very pleased with the results of the surgery , and was pain free ! Thanks Dr. Black for my HAPPY FEET!!! James Schroth, Fort Myers , Florida.
Dr. Black - my hero! by
After extensive investigative research, I chose Dr. Black to perform my very complex foot surgery (total reconstructive surgery to correct my flat feet once and for all). At first I was worried about his age, but was quickly won over by his credentials. I was having trouble deciding between a podiatrist, because of the intense, undiluted knowledge of the foot and ankle or an orthopedic surgeon who focuses on state of the art surgical techniques. Dr. Black embodies the best of both worlds. I was impressed to learn that his specialty is podiatry, but he trained under orthopedic surgeons. He had a fellowship under the doctor who invented my surgery. There are only five doctors in my home state who even attempt this surgery. I traveled 1275 miles to Florida to ensure a positive outcome and returned 5 months later to have the surgery on the other foot. I am SO glad I did. Thanks to Dr. Black I will be able to walk pain free for the first time in my life. He is absolutely the best!!!
Dr. Black Highly Recommened by
Victoria RN -
I am a surgical ICU nurse with 35 years of experience and also a legal nurse consulting specializing in medical malpractice cases. Believe me, I know the good doctors from the bad ones. My son was in a pickup football game and had a severe ankle dislocation/fracture of his right ankle. Dr Black was on call that day and I couldn't be more grateful. This injury could have left my son limping for the rest of his life, but instead he is now playing basketball again. It took 3 hours of surgery with rods and screws, but my son's leg is whole again. Unlike most physicians, that was not the end of things. Dr Black personally called several times post op to check on my son's progress. Dr Black followed up with him even after my son left for college. I would highly recommend Dr Black as a surgeon and as a person.

When I found out that Dr. Black was going to be doing my surgery to repair my broken leg, I have to admit I was nervous at first. I had never heard of him, and he was a young doctor. I was very pleasantly surprised when he stepped into my hospital room. He thoroughly explained everything that was going to happen, not just for my surgery, but even after, and he was great with my family as well. I live about four hours from his office, and the city where my injury occurred, so I would have to travel back and forth for future appointments. As a college student, it is hard for me to work with the typical 9-4 work day of a doctor, but Dr. Black and his staff kept the office open late to ensure that I would be able to get in without missing class to make the drive down to Cape Coral. Today, almost four months out of the surgery, Dr. Black still makes periodic calls to see how I'm doing. He has great bedside manner and I highly recommend him as an orthopedic surgeon.

My fiance could not have had a better surgeon. Dr. Black not only walked us through everything that was going to happen in fixing his injury, he made sure that everything was perfect. We are college students and live about four hours away, and instead of asking us to miss class to make an appointment during his office hours, he and his staff have stayed late to make sure that we could be taken care of. I have never met a doctor who is so down to earth, and who cares so much about his patients, and makes you feel like your speaking to a friend instead of a doctor. Even to this day, almost 4 months after the initial surgery, he calls to make sure everything is going well. I would recommend Dr. Black to anyone, he truly is the best.
Dr. Black is a person not just a Dr. by
I have been a patient of Dr. Black's for 5 months I had an accident and ended up shattering my ankle. I had to have emergency surgery and Dr. Black explained everything to me since I have never had surgery before I was extremely nervouse. The surgery lasted longer than expected, however since I do not have any family in the area he called my Mother and Sister who live in NC when I was out of surgery this was 12:30am my Mother and Sister were very pleased to get the call to assure that I was out of surgery and doing fine, he went above and beyond to inform my family. As for his bedside manner he is great he listens to his patients and spends time with you, he is a Dr. that cares about his patients. I have recommended him to several friends.

I could not have chosen a better doctor to do the extensive surgery on my foot. He has a wonderful bedside manner, and I felt very comfortable with him. He spent a lot of time with us before the surgery, explaining the procedures. He again spent much time with us at each check-up time. I have recommended him to many people in the area that we live in during the winter months.

If you don't mind waiting over one hour for each visit, even with an empty waiting room, and then be told by Dr Black is the Best and that reading your chart would take an extra 15 minutes, and him not knowing that you had surgery and this is your thir visit, and you don't mind him suggesting a medication you have been taking for 6 years while he is still telling you he is the best, then go for it. Careful tho- his ego fills the room.
