I have been Dr. Ruzievs patients 3 years he is top notch . Despite my younger age diagnosed me thyroid issue and sent me to edocrinology specialist which has helped me turn my life around . Before that I was told I may just have too much stress or anxiety, or I might not deal with stress well

Review for Dr. Vora

I had my left shoulder done in 2017 & my right shoulder done in 2021. Both were rotator cuff tears. My shoulders are good as new . Would strongly recommend Dr Soffer to do surgery. He is excellent!
