I called three times to schedule an appointment with Dr. Dines. I had a referral from an orthopedist in Dr. Dines HSS network and an MRI disk. The office each time answered the phone and either said they would get back or switched me to a voice mail. The office never contacted me. The diagnosis from my non- surgical orthopedist came with a caveat of a three week window for surgery to repair the injury to be successful. I have now wasted one of those weeks. I expected more from a medical professional. It reflects poorly on the HSS health network.

I suffered a massive rotator Cuff tear to my left shoulder playing Ice Hockey. I went to see an orthopedic surgeon who felt it was unrepairable and advised at some point I would need shoulder replacement surgery and that was something he didn’t do. I started my research with the urging from my wife to find a surgeon from HSS. I came across Dr Dines and after reading reviews I knew he was the Doctor I was looking for! When I went to the appointment I felt like I was meeting with an old friend, he listened to my concerns and answered all my questions but best of all he told me he did not agree with my prior doctor and felt he could repair the tear. Everyone that has had the surgery told me it would be rough. I had the surgery 1 week ago and feel great I was off pain meds after 1 day and after 4 I was walking around the neighborhood. Looking forward to getting back on ice in 6 months. I recommend Dr Dines for any of your shoulder needs! Thank you Dr Dines

Dr David Dines did my shoulder and my knee...between the 2 surgeries, I took a total of 5 pain killers, and only the day after the surgery. After that, Advil was sufficient. Incredible!!!

Had both shoulders replaced by Dr. David Dines in August 2016 and October 2016 at HHS. Released the next day after each surgery, pain was non-existent and rehab went quickly < 3 months. My estimation, I have 95+% mobility compared to pre-surgery movement just no pain. I suffered with pain for almost 10 years and it took a grandson to realize I needed to replace my shoulders.

Dr. Dines was very caring, concerned about me as a person, and successfully performed a massive rotator cuff repair that others discouraged me from having. He is so gifted but also so humble. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is respectful of his staff who in turn were respectful and helpful to me.

Both Dr David Dines and Dr Sheldon Dines are excellent caring doctors. Having systemic lupus diabetes and fibromyalgia I got the most excellent care. Dr S Dines did my shoulder and Dr David Dines did my meniscus. I would recommend them to anyone the best experience
