    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.
