Dr. Adkinson has repaired 2 shoulders and one knee for me, all three have had great results. He and his staff are very personable and perfessional and I have recommended him to several people. He and his staff are the best!

Wonderful surgeon. He takes time with each appointment to make sure you are fully aware of what is going on and are at ease with intervention needed. He performed knee and shoulder surgery and years later I am still doing great!
