Dr. Faryniarz has helped me with pain and recovery for my right shoulder and for my left knee, but not without surgery. Very recently she addressed an increasingly painful left shoulder. While she didn't assume surgery, but we both agreed after reviewing an MRI that surgery would help. She removed a significant bone spur that was slicing through my rotator cuff and my biceps tendon. The surgery went very well, the recovery has proceeded faster than she or I expected.

Dr Faryniarz performed a miracle for my shoulder! I had a very extensive injury, two of the four rotator cuff muscles were completely torn and the bicep was 80% torn. Could not even lift my arm. Five months after the surgery I am pain free and the arm is fully functional! The physical therapist Dr Faryniarz recommended was incredible, helped me a lot through the recovery. With 100% confidence I could recommend Dr Faryniarz to anybody with shoulder problems.I fully trust her skills and experience

Dr. Faryniarz was a great doctor. I tore my meniscus in November 2015. My first doctor (not Faryniarz) thought the tear would heal on its own. 2 months later in February 2016, I still hadn't recovered. I decided to go to Dr. Faryniarz. She was on top of my injury from the first time I saw her. She was very accommodating when booking surgery, had a great bedside manner, and was more than generous with her time and attention. Now I am on my way to a full recovery. Her staff was also GREAT.
