My recent visit with Dr. Deutsch and his team was great. They are very attentive and made the whole process easy. There was a follow up visit needed and they took care of that for me the very next day. A member of his team even checked on me by phone that evening to make sure I was feeling okay....more

Dr was great in quickly and clearly diagnosing my shoulder problem with several approaches BEFORE surgery has to be considered. I would definitely recommend him for any shoulder issues. I got in on short notice which was a huge convenience.

I was, and remain, extremely impressed by the overall process from the initial appointment to the discussion of my treatment program that was well explained and tailored to my schedule and geographic needs.

Very caring. He takes very good care of you. If it is something he can’t help you with he refer you to the right person. Would highly recommend.

I was pleased with the results of my consultation with Dr Deutsch; he recommended effective non-surgical solutions to relieve my shoulder pain. I would (and have!) sent friends to see him.
