Patient Comments (2)

I had surgery done in 2012 to repair my shoulder. It’s been almost 8 years and I am still in constant pain. I have been seen by specialists in other states that cannot believe the procedure and follow up I was given was even done. I will never be pain free, thanks to Dr Witham.
