I went to their free hand screening. All of my concerns and questions were answered by Dr. Olarte. The procedure I needed to have was scheduled for just a few days later. Thankful for the fact that they send all paper work home to be completed and brought back at next appointment. Everyone is very courteous and professional. In less than 1 week Dr. Olarte had diagnosed and fixed my problems. Thanks Florida Hand Center staff!!
