When my mother fell and broke her shoulder we wound up seeing Dr. Gregory. The path we took was filled with twists and turns but we are very happy that we did find him. He was personable and eager to explain what the solution to Mom's problem and quick to fix it (i.e. Shoulder Replacement). My mother recovered quickly and is back to her version of normal. Dr. Gregory has an office at the Memorial Herman complex on I-10 which is easier to get to and park in than the Medical Center.

I saw Dr. Gregory for a shoulder injury from a fall. The X-Ray showed a hairline fracture. Dr. Gregory was very friendly and was professional. I would recommend him to anyone with shoulder or elbow injuries.

Dr. Gregory was so attentive, spent a lot of time with me and addressed all of my issues and questions. He never seemed like he was in a hurry. He also gave a painless shot :)

Excellent surgeon! My mother age 81 had fell 3 years ago, and had shoulder surgery done by a trauma surgeon and she never recovered from that surgery, basically she lost 3 yrs of her life due to pain. After several appts with other shoulder specialist we finally decided on Dr. J. Gregory, it has been the best decision in 3 long years! He did a total reversal and she is healing wonderfully. She will not get full range, but she will not be in pain everyday. My mother is getting stronger everyday
