Dr. A. Is not only a very competent physician, she is also socially engaging, easy to talk to while maintaining professionalism all the while. I went in for an x-ray for a bad right shoulder before being referred to someone In pain management. I was surprised when she Injected the shoulder herself. Unlike the injections in my back, scoliosis pain, this injection has not touched the pain in my shoulder. Very disappointed in this because she said the injection would have to last 3 months while the treatment did not last five minutes. I had a one-year+ frozen shoulder, and several years later a repaired torn rotator cuff, and suffering with shoulder pain again in same shoulder with no relif in sight.

It was late Friday when I saw her, and she was having to push to get everything done she wanted to be sure I would be ok' until we got more answers. In 2 hours, she and her team had my EKG done, labs she needed, to the hospital for ultra sound needed looking for clots, had me on a blood thinner and an appointment set up w cardio on Monday! In 2 hours! Then, she called me that evening to be sure I had the 1st dose of blood thinner going and to check on me! Amazing!
