    If you want cold bedside manor and a Dr. who doesn't listen when you try to speak, then this is the doctor you want to see.

    I have never needed an orthopedic surgeon prior to my accident however I can say that Dr. Paxton is a very professional man and from what I experienced very well versed in shoulder/arm surgery.
