Stephanie in MI – Aug 24, 2018
I had right shoulder pain since high school football. Several injuries over the years made it worse with weakness and severe pain. Five years ago Dr Carpenter did and orthoscopic procedure and my right shoulder has been great since. For the last five years I have been able to swim and work out without right shoulder pain. Now my left shoulder is having the same issues and I am returning to have the left shoulder repaired. Sincerely, Stephen Daly, DO Family Practice
