Found Dr France Cuomo in 1997 . She did my left shoulder . 2010 I fell on a snowy day she did surgery again on my right shoulder . Injuried my right shoulder four weeks ago , RN helped me find her and she will repair my shoulder again . I trust this woman with my life . She has been nothing other than a gift from God to me . Love her dearly and her amazing staff . She is the best surgeon ever .
