Dr Robertson treats you with honesty AND kindness. She makes sure you understand every step of the process, and she does an amazing job. I'm very thankful she did my ham string surgery.

I had two rotator cuff repair surgeries with Dr. Robertson, on both shoulders, both tendons severely torn, requiring a graft. Outcomes on both shoulders was excellent.
