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."

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!!

Dr. Cordell has treated me a couple of times now - once for a splinter that had some type of weird fungus and a few years later for a couple of badly broken fingers.

I had a trigger finger ailment that required treatment. Dr. Cordell used a conservative approach of steriod shots before considering surgery.
