Review for Dr. Richardson

Dr Arnold repaired a torn biceps tendon. The surgery went great and 3 months later, not six months as he said recovery would probably be, I’m doing great! My strength has returned. My biceps muscle is almost back pre injury. Dr Arnold knows his stuff! I highly recommend him.
