It is with deepest gratitude and appreciation of the talent and ability of South Florida’s finest and best Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Casey Gaskins, that I am, once again, capable of writing this message with my right hand. Just over one year ago, Dr. Gaskins performed an extensive amount of surgery on my right arm, wrist and thumb. Recently, he gave me a final discharge with full use of all three i.e. the entire arm, shoulder to fingertips. His precision and care throughout were unmatched and always extremely professional. Anyone and everyone treated by Dr. Gaskins and his team can rest assured of a perfect outcome. ... Read More +

Dr Gaskins is a remarkable surgeon. He won the confidance of my 97 year old mother and did an excellent surgery on me when I needed elbow surgery. I would recommend him highly and seek his services again

I thank Dr. Gaskins for his evaluation and recommendation to "Bryan who is very professional in his work as a physical therapist and very human", I have come to recover my posture, the pain of my pinched nerves became from 1 to 10 ( I said 15 because of the intensity of the pain) to 5. Bryan, you are really good, thank you very much. Thanks to his joint efforts, I can say that very soon I will be fully recovered. I thank Angel, Dr. Nalley's assistant for her evaluation and recommendation and to Dr. Gonzalez. Many thanks to all. Thank you and God bless you

"You can not find better, period."

Absolute miracle worker. He and his staff are well beyond perfect. Trust them/him with my very life. You can not find better, period.

"Everything went smoothly"

Dr Gaskins was recommended to me by another surgeon. I had a carpal tunnel procedure done. Everything went smoothly pre and post-op. Everyone was friendly and helpful. My fingers feel ok but I still have some tingling in my thumb. It has only been 4 weeks post-op

"Very intelligent doctor."

Dr. Gaskins is awesome. Very down to earth and easy to talk to. Very intelligent doctor.

"Twenty-first century healthcare at its finest"

Words cannot express my gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Gaskins and his team. I injured my arm the day prior and he was gracious enough to see me on an urgent basis. He never made me feel like I inconvenienced him and/or would make his morning schedule more hectic. He was comprehensive in analyzing my subjective/objective evidence. So knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. I left his office and advised several of my friends about Dr. Gaskins and the amazing FMC team! Twenty-first century healthcare at its finest — thank you!

"Very happy I went here!!"

The whole visit in general was excellent!!! Dr. Gaskins was wonderful, he talked with me about my accomplishments from a surgery 11 years ago from another surgeon & told me how great my arm was doing. He took time to explain my new concern & gave me an injection that's working already!!! I will be back for continued care & I do recommend this doctors office to everyone!! I am very happy I went here!! Thnx again Dr. Gaskins!!!

"Friendly and has a great personality."

I would recommend Dr. Gaskins. He's friendly and has a great personality. He is my third doctor to see about my hand. I know it is arthritis but I don't want the first word out of a doctor's mouth is "surgery". Thanks for not doing that.

"Honest & upfront"

Outstanding Dr. Wonderful listener. Took his time with me instead of racing onto another appt. Provided me with options regarding my situation (torn bicep tendon). Felt like he was honest and upfront with me, which I appreciate. Would highly recommend him to anyone needing to visit Florida Medical Clinic Orlando Health.

"A very genuine person."

Dr. Gaskins and his team are fantastic! He has a great bedside manner and is a very genuine person. It is extremely obvious that he REALLY CARES about his patients. Thank you

"An excellent surgeon!"

Dr. Gaskins was fantastic! He was extremely attentive and caring! He explained my options and was honest in his recommendations. He is also an excellent surgeon! I have regained almost all of my mobility after surgery from my finger broken in two places. I would recommend him to anyone and will come back to him if I ever need Orthopedic care.

"Very professional & showed they cared"

Not a single thing negative thing about this appointment. Everyone was very professional and showed that they cared. After leaving other medical providers, I can feel confused and with more questions. This was not the case with Dr. Gaskins and the staff. They were informative, answered all questions (without irritation), and ensured I was provided everything I needed. Hopefully I do not break anymore bones, but if I do, this is where I will definitely return to.

"His bedside manner is something to be admired"

Dr. Gaskins is truly awesome. Not only is he super kind, but he is also very patient. His bedside manner is something to be admired. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!

"I couldn’t ask for a nicer doctor"

Dr Gaskins did surgery to repair my fractured radius. At my initial consultation, he thoroughly explained the x-ray findings and reviewed my options, which included getting a steel plate for the best possible long-term outcome. I’ve also had follow up visits and x-rays. I appreciate his non-rushed, thorough approach and his bedside manner. I couldn’t ask for a nicer doctor to put me at ease through my ordeal. He also called me the day after surgery to check on me. The entire office staff from front desk to those seeing me at my appointments (Joe and Brittany) are so caring and nice.
