I had an accident while visiting in Arizona. Dr. Cole performed a reverse shoulder and prothesis in my arm. On Thanksgiving, 2016. Dr. Cole and her team allowed me to achieve a good quality of life. My ortho surgeon in Buffalo, NY (Dr. Corey Reed) continues to phrase the excellent job Dr. Cole did and says I was so fortunate to have had her to put me back together. I hope on my next trip to AZ I can schedule an appointment with her to show her all that I have achieved. M. Mantione. Bflo.NY

Dr. Cole saved my life as well as my leg after I was in a motorcycle accident / hit and run. I was bleeding out and had a lot of dead shattered bone on my double open fracture (femur) and broken hip. This woman and her staff are GOD sent. Know I am able to continue my life with both my legs. My family is very very very thankful!!! She is literally an Angel!!!
