    Dr. Burkhead is a master when it comes to "fixing" shoulders. He inspires confidence from the start and his results are amazing. For me, recovery and mobility was almost immediate. As my trusted internist, Dr. Jeb Miers, said when recommending Dr. Burkhead to me: "If it's a shoulder problem, you can't do better than Buz Burkhead!"
