    in Alpha, NJ |
    Prior to an appt. w/Dr. Carolan I had already had several shoulder surgeries including a replacement done. Doctors in Philly & NY basically had no explanation for my continued pain. I lived several years being miserable all the while knowing something was being missed. An ultrasound followed by surgery back in '12 by Dr. Carolan and the daily pain is no more. Whenever I am asked how my shoulder is doing I always reply, "There is a hero called Dr. Carolan."

    My 2 yr old had a possible life threatening spiral fracture of his femur. Dr. Carolan, came in on his day off to treat my son whom he didn't know. His heart is great, and skills even greater.

    Hands down Dr carolan is the best around. My son is an athlete and needed shoulder repair surgery. After 3 opinions, I was recommended to Dr Carolan. As soon as he walked in the room, I knew he was going to help my son. He explained what was wrong, how he would fix the problem and took the time to relieve our worries about recovery. He is truly an amazing person and surgeon. Not only is he the best at what he does, you can tell he truly loves what he does.

    Poor people skills, does not listen to questions from family members. I already talked to your mother about surgery, arrogant style. Dismissive. Post -op no problems, but need to improve his people skills and stop wearing his country club shirts.
