Patient Comments

Comments are taken from the Care Provider section of the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Comments are posted exactly as they are written. Comments are added weekly. To protect patient privacy and confidentiality, patient names are not included.


Dr. Hubbard is one of the best Orthopaedics in the business! I have total confidence in him!


*Dr. Hubbard has done everything right to gain my respect and confidence in him and his team.\


I visited this doctor as a second opinion. Another surgeon had recommended clavicle surgery. The first surgeon did not look beyond the xray on the clavicle and did no physical examination. Dr. Hubbard suspected and found two cracked ribs and a torn rotator cuff. He does not recommend surgery for the clavicle, which seems to be healing well. We will follow up with an MRI and possible surgery for the rotator cuff.


Again, I felt as if my concerns were discounted when I was told that he could see no reason for my pain even after discussing the cysts on my MRI.


Dr Hubbard used a lot of technical terms while examining my knee and talking with the P.A. It would be helpful if he then put it in laymen's terms to me. I understand the need for technical terms when discussing with another physician but the patient needs to hear basic words they can understand. I.e. we think you have damaged the meniscus, etc.


Can't find a bad thing about anything concerning staff or facility.


very concerned about my care


*Dr. Hubbard is very kind and concerned about my well being.


Dr. Hubbard is fantastic Doctor. He is very thorough and is very concerned for my health and very helpful. I recommend him and his team to everyone.


Dr. Hubbard in my opinion is the best in his field. He always takes time to explain to me what is happening with my knee and which direction we are going to go. Always makes me feel extremely comfortable and at ease.


Dr. Hubbard is excellent. He is obviously very intelligent and has proven to me he knows what he is doing. Throughout my visits with him, he has helped me understand what was going on with my injury and recovery. I feel very fortunate to be his patient and hope WFBMC does what is necessary to keep him!


I have never had a bad experience.


I would highly recommend Dr. Hubbard.


Dr. Hubbard is unique in that he did not just dictate to me what I should do about my knee problem. He asked me what my lifestyle was like and gave me options of treatment. His thoroughness answering my myriad of questions was wonderful. I will go to this doctor for any future sports injuries. I felt like an individual person not just the next patient on a daily schedule. Nowadays, that is important to me.


Dr. Hubbard did a great job working with me and scheduling surgery while I had time off so I could heal and not loose any work. Too think he would take the time out of his busy schedule is like a blessing from God! I would recommend him to everyone!


Very good.


Highly recommend Dr. Hubbard.


Extremely satisfied with care received from Dr. Hubbard and I have expressed that to family and friends. Davie Medical Center is fortunate to have him on faculty and hopefully will be able to keep him.


*Dr JB Hubbard is an excellent surgeon the best and most communicative I've ever dealt with (and I'm 82)


Very confident and knowledgeable caregiver, friendly and seemed very concerned about my injury


Great facility in all areas.Staff seemed very proud and happy about there jobs.


My daughter set this appointment for me to get a second opinion on my knee. She uses Dr. Hubbard for orthopedic problems. I am a retired RN.


*Dr. Hubbard shows his skills well & very compassionate. He's blessed.


I would recommend Dr Hubbard to anyone. I wish we had a Dr with his knowledge and expertise closer to where I live


very good--however as retired physician I do not believe my input regarding prior experiences with this problem were given adequate attention


I have great confidence in Dr, Hubbard.


Really liked Dr John Hubbard


Did use medical terms I'm familiar with he explained further of those meaning to family I had in the room as well.


I was impressed and 100% satisfied with each person involved in my care. Davie Medical Center is fortunate to be represented by the faculty & staff there.


I would have liked to have thanked him after the surgery but I know he was busy


I feel very comfortable on all my visits. Everyone treat you with respect.

Dr. Hubbard let me ask all the questions I had and explained everything.


Great experience!


Dr. Hubbard is outstanding in dealing with patients. He treats you with respect and kindness. He explains your situation very well and discusses what he sees as the best treatment.


Very good doctor!


impressed with providers demeanor, liked him




Dr. John Hubbard exceeded my expectations. My anxiety level was very high when I arrived. I told him that and he did a wonderful job of explaining things to me in a way that made me feel much more relaxed. I was surprised by how much time he was spending with me. He was not rushed and never acted like he was trying to get out the door. He then told me to feel free to call if I had any questions or needed to talk about anything. He even called me the next day to check on me and make sure he had answered all my questions. I have so much confidence in him & feel less anxious going into surgery now.


Told me exactly & precisely problems & treatment options.


Dr. Hubbard spent a lot of time explaining things and answering my questions. He also listened to my concerns and input before making any divisions. He seems to be very caring an develops an individualized plan instead of a generalized one.


Great dr.!


Dr JB Hubbard is excellent at what he does and communicates outstandingly with the patient. I couldn't have more confidence in a care provider.


Dr. Hubbard even gave me his personal cell phone number to call if I had problem or question. Pretty amazing.


Dr. Hubbard is awesome. He has always taken time with me and made sure I understand everything. I have great confidence in Dr. Hubbard and recommend him to anyone that asks if I know a great surgeon.


I had a good experience with this Provider. There were a couple words that went over my head but I had my parents with me so they knew what the Provider was talking about too. We talked about how wonderful it was to have a Dr. who is not trying to push you out the door but rather took his time along with his PA in explaining things to me and my parents and going over options too. They did not care if it took an hour.


I enjoyed my visits. Very good provider.


JB Hubbard is the most communicative doctor I've ever known. With excellent surgical skills, someone I'll recommend to anyone. And his nurse, Jessica Garner is an excellent compliment to him, she's an excellent compliment and works well with him. Together they're one of the best health care teams there is.


Dr. Hubbard is an amazing doctor.


I would highly recommend *Dr. Hubbard to all my family and friends.
