Dr Connally is a wonderful physician and surgeon, me and my husband see him and we both feel the same. He takes his time and explains in terms I can understand. Had shoulder surgery and it went wonderful, he even asked to pray with me before surgery. His nurses are the best ever and respond almost immediately when contacting the office. I am so blessed to have found this amazing doctor. My fast recovery first and foremost is due to have this wonderful surgeon. He not only is knowledgeable but caring and patient. I trust him fully to care for me and my family.

Dr. Connally was an amazing Dr. S&W is blessed to have him. he went above and beyond for my care including speaking to ER about the lack of care received when I initially went in. he took it upon hisself to consult with other physicians in his field to get me the best possible treatment. I am blessed to have had him as my ortho doc.

he listens to you and dose not discard what you tell because he has already figured out what you need. he does not seem like a pompous surgeon as many I have had in the past seem to think they know all and can do no wrong. he is very professional and laid back. I will continue to use him for me and if anyone in my family needs his services. I will recommend him. I\'ve never felt more confident in a doctor before.

Dr Connally was very professional and polite. He explained everything to me and did not push me to get shots in my shoulder. In fact I feel much better already with the naproxen he prescribed me. Thank you Dr. Connally.
