Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cordell "Helping patients is such a huge thing to me. I love being able to give back to the community and just help people feel better. I give them a chance to get back to their fun activities like playing the piano and playing golf. The best referral is sometimes not another physicians but your patients that you've already taken care of and have had a good experience. I have been so blessed by so many wonderful patients that have sent friends and family after they've had a good experience. 

I specialize in hand and upper-extremity surgery. I am double-fellowship trained in not only hand surgery but also shoulder and elbow. That was an extra year of training doing hand surgery followed by another year doing just shoulder and elbow. I can really focus on those aspects--a lot of rotator cuff tears, carpal tunnel syndrome and compressive neuropathies of the upper extremities. I also see a lot of trauma -- fractures and sports injuries and age-related things like arthritis in the hand."

I had-surgery on my left and right hands and had no problem. She was so nice. She knew what she was doing. Everything went great. I would go back to her again if I needed anything done.

As others have stated, the Dr. has poor bedside manners. Went in as a referral for a complete tear on my roatator cuff. She basically told me nothing she could do, no surgery to repair. Only told me to do PT !! Most Dr.s at this CHI are getting very bad with patients!!
