Dr. Bried repaired my right shoulder with a traditional shoulder replacement surgery. Post surgery 5 weeks no pain in shoulder and getting a full nights sleep and have 80% range of motion. Dr. Jim's surgery gave me back my right arm and shoulder. I promise anyone who is having joint issues in their knees and or shoulders I would strongly recommend a visit to Dr. Bried's Office. You will not find a more experienced orthopedic surgeon who truly cares about keeping his patients active and pain free. Thank you Dr. Bried and your staff for everything you have done for me.

Dr Bried has performed two rotator cuff surgeries on me, both with excellent results. He recently performed a very successful knee replacement surgery on my wife. We are both extremely happy with his work, and highly recommend him to anyone with these conditions.

Dr. Bried is an excellent surgeon. I needed a knee replacement and it resulted in two surgeries; one to remove hardware from a previous injury, and the second for the actual knee replacement. Both went very well and my recovery time was better than average. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a knee replacement.

Dr. Bried has now done bot knee replacements for me, and a shoulder surgery. I would never need to see another Ortho for anything. Dr. Bried has a great personality, and is very professional when it comes to your medical needs. I have personally recommended Dr. Bried to family, and co-workers that have also had knee replacements with him. They also are very happy with Dr. Bried's work.

I was very hesitant initially about getting a complete knee replacement, so I did my homework and was able to find Dr. Bried. I am so relieved that I had complete success and such a quick recovery. I was also concerned about the scar the surgery would leave on my knee. I don't know how he did it, but the scar is minimal and fading quickly. I feel so lucky to have found him as my doctor and would recommend him to anyone that wants the best possible results. Thank you Dr. Bried, you're a great physician.

I found him not very helpful and very insulting. I heard him talking to his assistance outside the room saying we need to get this patient out so we can get another one in. My advise is to see another doctor instead.

Dr. Bried is a highly skilled surgeon. He and his staff provided excellent pre and post op care and simple but clear patient communication in each of my surgeries. My most recent need in early Dec 2020, required him to perform a left shoulder arthroscopy with subacromial decompression, labral debridement, chondroplasty and synovectomy. All went as prescribed. One of Dr. Bried's exceptional surgical talents has enabled me to recover more quickly and with minimal pain. To date, I have had both knees and shoulders operated on by Bried over the past 20 years. Several friends and family members have had various surgeries by him too. All with the same results. I wouldn't trust any other surgeon for orthopedic medical needs.

I have required Dr. Brieds services on three occasions. The latest being this month (Dec.) On each of these times the quality of the service was outstanding. I always got in to see him in minimal time. He always went over any X-rays and/or MRIs with me and thoroughly explained my options. He was also very receptive to my input, and based his recommendations on what was best for me. When I hurt my shoulder just prior to a trip to New Zealand he quickly got me into physical therapy so I could regain enough mobility to continue with the trip. When I needed surgery for another injury his post-operation follow-up was both personal and reassuring. I would not hisitate to recommend Dr. Bried to anyone who asked. He is an outstanding doctor.

My rotator cuff repair has gone very well with Dr. Bried. After a lifetime of competitive swimming and surfing, my shoulder started acting up. I knew that Dr. Bried is experienced with athletes, and my outcomes have been great. I used his recommended physical therapy department and I'm almost ready to get back to U.S. Masters Swimming workouts.
