Patient Comments (2)
Silverton, OR |
He explains things very well and leaves the final decision up to you, tells you what to expect both with and without surgery, and he is an excellent surgeon.
Wilsonville, OR |
Excellent doctor goes out of his way to explain things I never felt hurried or rushed to make a decision. Great staff and experience with surgery. My biggest fear was pain after surgery. I received Novocain pump for the first 3 days out of surgery along with a cryocuff machine that circulates cold water threw a wrap placed over the shoulder. my experience for the most part has been painless with minimal need of pain killer
