Patient Comments (1)
in Albuquerque, NM |
I loved my experience with Dr. Allen. He was very knowledgeable and most importantly very straight and honest about the procedures and there after and what to expect. A word of advice to those of you having shoulder surgery. Do not try and exceed your instructions with post operative recovery like I did. There is a reason Dr. Allen stresses on keeping that arm in a sling until you start your PT. 4-6 wks post operative. Don't try to push it or do more like I did or he will.have to go back again!!
