I went to see Dr. Cain for a frozen shoulder. He did a thorough evaluation and was able to do an injection the same day! He recommended physical therapy and gave me good advice about my activity level--what was ok to do and what to avoid.

Great experience with Dr. Bush and staff. No waiting, experienced nurses, talked to us in Layman’s terms versus getting all doctor-y, clear and concise post op instructions, was overall a wonderful experience, considering.

Dr McQuilkin was my wife`s anesthesiologist at CMMC Lewiston ME. He was very kind and so conscientious, she has an ICD implanted and needed to be turned off for surgery, he would not do procedure until he had proof it was off. Thank you for being so careful. Highly recommended.
