2nd rotator cuff by Dr. Primus. The first surgery was most successful with very little pain. Thus far, recovery is proceeding quite well. Courteous and knowledgeable staff helps to walk through the entire process. Thanks Primus and the CSO Team!

Dr Primus is honest and gives the details as to what the issue is and can it be fixed. He takes the time needed to make sure the patient understands everything going on. Knows that surgery can make one nervous spends the time before surgery calmly and patiently making sure all details are ciovered.

Dr Primus answers your questions with good detail. His billing services have proven to be inadequate. THe billing personnel are very tardy in submitting medical claims AND very unorganized. His billing service continually submit and resubmit claims for the same services.

I would not choose Dr. Primus if I had a choice. The reason is because anytime I schedule a appointment we're always waiting at least 2 HOURS PAST our scheduled time.
