A testament to the extraordinary skill and brilliant expertise of the PT staff at Golden Orthopedic Clinic

Dr. Krantzow,

My name is Michael. You performed a reverse shoulder replacement of my left shoulder on March 31, 2022, at West Boca Medical Center. It is hard for me to find the words to adequately express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for the extraordinary job that you did on my shoulder replacement. The chronic pain and constant ache that I experienced in my left shoulder for the last 4 to 5 years is gone. I am hopeful that I will eventually regain most of my range of motion to resume the activities that my former shoulder injuries and deterioration prevented me from performing. I thank you and your entire staff for their competent, capable, courteous and professional service.

As a partially disabled United States Army veteran, I receive my medical care through the Veterans Administration Medical Center in West Palm Beach. On Thursday, June 16, 2022, I received an orthopedic assessment of my left shoulder replacement by the physical therapy coordinator at the Occupational Therapy department at the VA. After having completed seven weeks of physical therapy at your clinic, it was their intention to schedule my continuing physical therapy weekly at their clinic at the VA.

She was so impressed with the progress I had made in improving my range of motion and flexibility since my surgery in March, that she elected to authorize me to attend an additional seven weeks of physical therapy at your Golden Orthopedic PT clinic. She admitted that your outstanding PT staff had exceeded what the PT staff at the VA could have expected to achieve with me.

It is a testament to the extraordinary skill and brilliant expertise of the PT staff at Golden Orthopedic Clinic that you employ. Arturo, Vladamir, Kelsey, Daniella and Amber are invaluable and irreplaceable assets that contribute enormously to the success of the Golden Orthopedic Center. It is my objective to improve my range of motion, strength and flexibility as best as I can, under the care and guidance of your amazing PT staff. I would request that a copy of this letter be placed in each of your physical therapy staff personnel files.


Thank you for your skills and dedication.

Dr. Kephart,

A year ago, within three months you operated on my two hips. Now I am walking without pain. The length of both my legs is perfect. Thank you for your skills and dedication.

My quality of life has improved tremendously

Dr. Kephart,

I want to thank you for the knee surgery you performed on me in June. With your special care and compassion, my quality of life has improved tremendously. Thank you for this. I have so much confidence in you and will always refer you to others and will always refer you to others in search of an orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Landes is incredible.

Dr. Landes and his office staff were exceptional. Very clean office and outgoing, friendly staff. Everyone was extremely sufficient and on their “A” game! Dr. Landes is incredible. You don’t find too many doctors who actually take the time to really listen and explain things thoroughly. On top of all of that he is a genuinely caring and compassionate physician. I highly recommend anyone to this Practice.


Dr. Kephart, you have made a world of difference for me. 

Then the BEST THING HAPPENED DR. KEPHART – AS YOU ADMINISTERED THE SHOT, YOUR NURSE STREAMED THE “PAIN-RELIEVER” RIGHT ALONG WITH THE SHOT!! This letter is to say that I feel very blessed to have landed YOU as my new Ortho Doctor. GONE is the “trepidation”.  Dr. Kephart, you have made a world of difference for me.   Thank you.

Now I can function without a hint of pain.

What a great experience! I was told from the first meeting that the surgery would completely fix the issue with my hip and I would resume normal function with proper physical therapy, this was absolutely true. In 6 weeks I have recovered fully and doing everything that for a year and 1/2 only brought me pain and limitations. Now I can function without a hint of pain.

Thank you to Dr. Krantzow and his staff and to the physical therapy team on site. Kelsey, Kaitlyn and Lynne made my recovery very productive and allowed me to push myself to a point of confidence. Thank you to everyone!

GREAT office – great healers – thank you!

I seem to have broken my breastbone two weeks ago – and called Dr. Kephardt over this past weekend – very worried and believing I needed an xray. Dr. Kephardt – called me back very quickly and answered ALL of my questions – completely patient – and kind to allay my fears. He told me there was no need – explained answers to my fears – and set me on my healing journey. I have been into the office to see him before and he is caring – smart – takes time with you and a fine orthopedist – I am most most grateful especially during this corona difficult time. THANK YOU DR. KEPHARDT and thanks to Linda who contacted me today – to find out if my needs were answered over the weekend when I called. GREAT office – great healers – thank you!!!

“Thank you Dr Krantzow for operating on my husband”

Thank you Dr Krantzow for operating on my husband after he tore his Quadriceps tendon. He is doing beautifully . Probably 90% back to what he was. He did amazingly well for an 87 year old. Kudos to your rehab staff for helping to bring him back. It all ended. Abruptly so we never thanked them personally.

“Dr. Golden and his entire staff have been beyond wonderful”

Dr. Golden and his entire staff have been beyond wonderful in educating, assisting and helping me become an active person again. I am so happy that I have chosen partial knee replacement and would not have anyone but Dr. Golden perform the surgery. From preopp to physical therapy and in between, everyone has been so helpful.

“I received the kindest professional care”

I received the kindest professional care at Golden Orthopedics run by Lynne and her staff Jessica and Dave, all of whom were the very best. I felt like they were my friends after 5 weeks and my discomfort in back/leg was much much better.

“Dr. Palmer has changed my life and has really made it worth living. He is my ANGEL.”

Dr. Palmer operated on my right foot and corrected cross over toe and straighting out my other toes. February 4, 2015, I had surgery on my left foot which was corrected with a post, plate and pin. The results were extremely positive now my gait is simply marvelous. I see many Doctors and they have followed me thru both surgerys, I have shown them my results with that they are now sending their patients to Dr. Palmer. Dr. Palmer has changed my life and has really made it worth living. He is my ANGEL.

“A thousand thanks to Dr. Kephart”

Dr. Kephart,

A thousand thanks for your attention to my knee with your “Angel Hands.” You gave me the courage to get through my injection. Thank You So Much!!


“Whole staff goes out of their way to help”

I have been treated by Dr. Palmer and Dr, Kephart. Each time they show a lot of care and concern in treating my problem. They did a great job, I also worked with Ross and Lynn in physical therapy and they were wonderful. The whole staff at both offices go out of their way to help.


“Dr. Palmer’s compassion and kindness is unparalleled”

Dr. Palmer,

I recently was treated by Dr. Palmer for a serious foot condition. Dr. Palmer’s ability, skill, and expertise saved my leg. Dr. Palmer’s compassion and kindness is unparalleled and I will always be grateful to him. Because of him my life is back to normal.

“My Shoulder is 100% Healed”


I visited with Dr. Kephart today and after three months and 10 days my shoulder is 100% healed. He said it usually takes 4 to 6 months, and sometimes up to a year. I want to say thank you to both you and Dr. Kephart for my rapid recovery. Thanks again.
