As always he has done all that he can. He tells it like it is and does all he can to ease the pain without surgery. I have recommended a number of friends that have become his patients.

I was experiencing shoulder pain and loss of strength. My MRI showed two large tears in my rotator cuff along with a torn bicep. Dr Bynum gave me my surgery option as well as non surgical. Because of my age and my physical activities I chose the surgery. Dr Bynum along with his staff were always very professional and friendly. I was well informed of the surgery procedure, recovery time and restrictions. I also have to give a special thanks to Sue and her physical therapy crew. They were the best. Just like Dr Bynum, they were genuinely concerned and cared about your health and recovery.

I am not new to doctors, fore I have been to 18 since 2017. I have fired a few, but have kept Dr. Bynum. Dr.Bynum is a wonderful doctor. Great bedside manner and does not 'push' surgery on you. He's a keeper.

Dr. Bynum, Anastasia and his staff are wonderful to work with and help me stay active playing tennis and participating in bootcamp HIT classes. Dr. Bynum is a good listener and offers detailed explanations of my injuries, joint condition and the various options to consider for treatment and care. I highly recommend making an appointment with Dr. Bynum if you’re having joint pain or have an injury. There’s a good chance he can offer you relief from your pain and get you back to playing your favorite sport.

DR BYNUM was extremely thorough with the evaluation of my hip pain. Sometimes there are things that may be hard to diagnose. He did not jump to the conclusion that I may have a condition that was common. I loved that he listened to me about my chronic pain as it has been something I have been dealing with for about 10 years. Thank you.
