    Thank you Coastal Orthopedics for having such a very capable Doctor working on your staff treating me. Dr.Shereff is very good at what he does. Each time I see him, he always shows me, his patient that he really cares about my health issues. I Crushed my right ankle at Disney, Orlando Florida in 2016. My Insurance company sent me to different specialists over the next couple of years. It was not until one of these so-called specialists I was seeing finally sent me to an Orthopedic Surgeon at Wake Med in Garner, North Carolina. The surgeon told me after a few x-rays that my right foot needed surgery because of my accident. The surgeon put 5 screws in my right foot in 2018, that I’m still having issues with, out of the 5 screws in my foot, 2 are not fused together properly causing me constant pain. Because of his wisdom as a surgeon, Dr. Shereff is a tremendous help to me. He is doing his very best to help me heal. I will see him again in August. I just wanted you to know how blessed you are having him working on your staff. Again thank you Dr. Shereff for your continued help and kindness to me. I’m a disabled veteran, it’s an honor knowing you.

    Excellent, excellent practice. From check-in to check-out, everyone is so, so nice and professional. Both appointments were right on time. Dr. Shereff helped me to quickly heal and recover from a bad case of plantar fasciitis. Initially, I had expected I’d never be the same again. I am a very active individual and walk 5 miles a day. I followed his recommendations, including spending more than an hour a day doing recommended foot exercises. I improved tremendously in just one week and now after 5 weeks, I am almost normal. I am one very happy Florida gal. Don’t hesitate to make an appointment with this group. You will get better.
