To finish what I was saying is, Dr Perlmutter knows what he is doing, helps and gets you at ease, tells you what to expect and how long to start feeling better or being up front with you and saying that it might never be 100% and most of the time gets you better. after 6 years my shoulder is not 100% but its a lot better then when I first saw Dr. Perlmutter. Thank you again and God bless you and your family and your painting!

Dr. Perlmutter operated on both shoulders of my cousin as well as my mother. He also saw each of my two sons who injured their shoulders. I've seen many surgeons in my lifetime and I can honestly say Dr. Perlmutter is an outstanding clinician who is also a very kind, warm human being! This is a rare combination! He is a gem!
