Shoulder worse than before the surgery. Called to speak to him three times. Not once did I get through. His staff blamed me and the physical therapists. More pain and less motion than before. Very poor work and a very rude staff.

I was very nervous in scheduling iwth Dr. Prohaska, but was reassured to make that decision thanks to a Shawnalee. She spoke highly of the doctor, knew how to answer all my questions concerning what he practiced, and was very sweet in the process. I'm so grateful for her.
