Patient Comments (1)
in Nevada City, CA |
I had shoulder surgery performed by Dr. Minor. Altho I followed directions, 1 year later I still couldn't raise my arm all the way! When I went back to him to ask about it, he said he didn't want to treat me anymore. I was completely dumbfounded, extremely upset & in tears. Another Ortho Surgeon in GV sent me directly to Sacramento to a well known Ortho Surgeon. After examining me, he made a face & said, "I DON'T CUT", then he performed an excellent surgery on my shoulder. DON'T GO TO DR. MINOR!
