I would love to share an incredible story with parents. My son was hit by a drunk driver and left for dead. He was in the worst condition imaginable. The doctors told me after he was on life support 4 months that he would never walk, talk, or even know who I am. I took him to Dr. Shannon as he had multiple breaks and fractures on his whole body. At this time, he was in such bad shape Dr. Shannon didn’t even know what to tell me. I returned one day and my boy blew Dr. Shannon’s mind. He said hi Dr. Shannon. Witch I’m sure Dr. Shannon never expected. Gage was 4 years old at this time and has been a patient of Dr. Shannon ever since. I thank God and Dr. Shannon every day as my son has had multiple surgeries, so he can walk correctly and use his arms and hands correctly. If not for the knowledge and experience at pediatric orthopedics my son would still be in a wheelchair. They have totally rebuilt him. As he is 13 years old now. Riding bikes, playing baseball, and incredibly doing the thing little boys are supposed to do. My son has had a new procedure almost every year as it’s taken years and baby steps to correct the things he needed to be able to function as a normal boy. But Dr. Shannon and the doctors at pediatric orthopedics have the most incredible knowledge and skills to do amazing things to make the impossible possible. The office staff and doctors make you feel so hopeful and are just amazing people. I don’t know where my son would be without them. Thank you all at Pediatric orthopedics of southwest Florida.
Through all 4 of my children's injuries they have been very helpful and caring. My children are very active in competition sports and we have visited this facility a fair few times. I would not trust my children to any other orthopaedic clinic in this area.
Excellent service and compassionate healthcare. Highly recommend.
We have been seeing Dr. Shannon since our daughter was born & now have been seeing Dr.Ruggles. Our daughter was born with Congenital Fibular defiencey in her left leg. Dr. Ruggles has gone above & beyond for our daughter and we speak regularly on Lucy’s progress. The whole staff at POSWFL is outstanding and couldn’t be happier knowing she’s in your hands. Thank you for everything you all do, Lucy appreciates you all very much!
My daughter broke her arm on vacation so had to have surgery out of state. My experience - from calling to make a follow up appointment to everything - has been outstanding!!!! I can’t believe how easy it was; I thought for sure it would be difficult because someone else did the surgery out of state. I have been positively surprised every step of the way. Ladies at the front are AMAZING and each provider we have seen are outstanding and great with kids.
To the staff and surgical team of Dr. John Churchill,
And to the potential new patient…
Thank you, does not seem large enough of an expression to show the gratitude that we feel for all of the wonderful service and kindness exhibited by the staff and team at Pediatric Orthopedics of SWFL.
My daughter had to go through a spinal fusion and needless to say, we, as a family, were very concerned and anxious. The staff and surgical team were very informative and helped answer all our questions with the greatest of compassion.
From the beginning, with blood work and infectious control the whole team was wonderful. The day of surgery with everyone involved, it was as if Abby was the only patient and we were put at ease each step of the way. We received continued updates during surgery and then in recovery, the nurses were so informative. I can’t say enough about the PICU and all the nurses on duty. They were all so compassionate. The surgical team visits were so wonderful each day as they walked through recovery.
Dr. John Churchill is amazing and came to see Abby each day, even on the weekend. It was really a blessing to be able to touch base with him, and all he did for Abby.
So, from the bottom of our hearts, a heartfelt THANK YOU!!
You do make a difference in these children’s lives, and the world is a better place for your commitment.
Pleasantly surprised!! I have not had great experiences with doctors and hospitals. But, this was different. My son had a badly broken arm from a skateboarding accident. When I called to make the appointment, the girl was friendly, made a timely appointment, and connected me to the financial department for an estimate and payment options. At the visit, the staff was kind and efficient. It was an afternoon appointment and we were still called in within 10 minutes of the appointment time. The nurses, assistants, and radiologist all called my son by name. It's so nice not to feel like a number. And Dr. Ruggles was absolutely fantastic. Great personality, very proficient, and caring. When he found out we lived an hour away, he wrote me a script to have a follow up x-ray taken near our house to save us the hour trip.. This was one of the few times we felt like were were receiving health CARE. Reminded me of our family doctor when I was kid. Thank you all for caring about your patients and doing such a terrific job. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Very respectful, courteous, clean safe environment. Staff was amazing and knowledgeable of all. Punctual and informative doctor put my mind at ease. I would definitely recommend to family, friends and strangers
Dr. Hariharan is an AMAZING Doctor. He is professional, friendly, honest, and caring. He made us very comfortable by explaining procedures in detail. And his follow up skills both via e mail or phone are terrific. This also includes his staff. EVERYONE is caring and willing to help.
One last thing I must say that NO ONE has ever done. He call my son the night before the surgery to assure him it was going to be ok and to answer any last questions. This meant the world to my son and I who were super nervous.
Till today Dr. Hariharan continues to check on my son's improvement.
He is a blessing
My 2 year old seemed to have hurt his foot or ankle at mini golf. I took him to the ER and they were very dismissive and didn't even have him walk to see where the injury was. I decided to take him here for a second opinion. After watching my son walk for a second the doctor x rayed his leg to find out he fractured his tibia. We decided to cast him for 2 weeks and made a full recovery. Everyone was super nice and accommodating.. I had a lovely experience. I was also impressed with all of their Covid protocols. I felt very safe.
Let me start off by saying they're OPEN ON SATURDAYS!!!! That was a big plus for us considering my husband's and I work schedule. The staff was amazing. Dr. Daniel Ruggles is awesome. He is very informative and knowledgeable in his work, and even great with kids. He gave my 2yr old a physical assessment, took x-rays, explained the x-rays (in layman terms,) and developed a plan- ALL WITHIN OUR FIRST VISIT. I'm impressed and confident that my son will get the appropriate level of care necessary to resolve his condition, as Dr. Ruggles have already placed a plan into action. Very clean and sanitary facility. Nice warm and welcoming staff. Quick wait time. Didn't have to fill out an encyclopedia on my first visit... just a few customary forms. Coming all the way from Miami, Fl, I'd say it was worth it. We look forward to seeing our son's progression at Pediatric Orthopedics of SWFL.
