Great doctor. Did an awesome job on the first repair! 100%! Unfortunately, he had to do it again due to a car accident. Did good again! Too bad the damage has taken its toll on the shoulder. His empathy for the final results could’ve been better though.

He did total left shoulder replacement for me in February of 2013 it's just great! I go in this coming week to have my right shoulder replaced hope it turns out as good as my left. I'm sure it will with Dr Schofield he's the best!

Dr. Schofield is the finest orthopedic surgeon I have known in my 42 year nursing career. His knowledge and skill in orthopedics is exceptional and his professionalism is so apparent.
in Sarasota, FL |
I found the doctor to be extremely knowledgeable. I've been to the office for two ailments the first being a trigger finger and more recently with a torn Rotator Cuff and two supporting tendons. For the shoulder problem I have been seeing Alexis, the doctor's excellent P.A.
