Patient Comments (1)
in Flushing, NY |
I suffered a serious injury to my left shoulder requiring surgery while training in the police academy. The only option I had to keep my job was to have surgery to repair the tears I had in my shoulder. Dr. Golant was referred to me as a great orthopedic surgeon and far surpassed the recommendation I received about him. My shoulder, after rehab, is stronger than before my injury and I was able to complete my training and become a Police Officer. Dr. Golant saved my career. Thanks Dr. Golant!!!
