Absolutely FANTASTIC. He took the time to show me xrays not only of my shoulder that I had not gotten to see before , but also my knee I was seeing him about.. Explained them to me in language I could understand. Very thorough and answered all questions and possible steps to take to eliminate or at least lessen my problems and pain. This is the most I have understood what I was being shown and discussed in my 80 years. Just a fantastic experience. Gave me a shot in my shoulder and we anticipated at least a week to ten days for noticeable Improvement, but I can already raise my hand above my head where I could not get It above my shoulder before. Lot less pain now also. I cannot thank this gentleman enough for his care, his insuring I understood everything he was discussing me and his sincere Interest In my health and well being.

He's a good guy. Explained things well, passed on the seriousness of my injury in a truthful yet positive way. This injury is a massive change to lifestyle for sometime. He confirmed that but assured it's nothing I can't handle (we he said) and most importantly I believe him.
