in Venice, FL |
Dr. Cuff has treated my shoulder for three years. He is kind, competent, and accessible. I would recommend him with no hesitation
in Rotonda West, FL |
I had rotator cuff surgery May 31, 2016 with Dr. Cuff, and the entire experience was first rate. My shoulder feels great with full movement, no restrictions and no pain. Dr. Cuff is personable, easy to talk to, and answers all your questions and concerns. He walks you through the process, including photos of what needs to be done and your post surgery photos. If you follow his instructions to the letter, including mandatory physical therapy, you'll be perfectly happy with the outcome.

I had my surgery done on May 2,2016 and it was a very good experience because I am now without pain in my left shoulder after suffering with it for years. I am glad I did it.
