Review for Dr. Cain

My husband was seen for a suspected Rotator Cuff injury. Dr Anderson diagnosed a tear, offered conservative treatment, with a successful outcome. He was patient, kind, and very accurate in his plan of care. We would highly recommend him for care. His friendly staff was much appreciated as well.
