This has got to be one of the best Dr.'s in town. My 91 year old mother fell and broke her arm and crushed her shoulder . Dr. Gregory did the surgery about a month ago and she is healing great. You can tell Dr. Gregory really cares about his patients and he is very confident of his work . He is a genuinely great guy and an awesome Dr. I had to call him twice after hours to ask a question and both times he called back in about 5 minutes and was very cordial and helpful. .

I had tendon repair surgery 5 1/2 months ago on my rt elbow by a different Dr. long story short ended up with frozen shoulder syndrome that went undiagnosed. I switched Dr’s to Dr. Gregory. He figured it out in 3 minutes. Words cannot say how grateful I am for the relief I woke up with this morning after my injection Thursday by his partner Dr. Kevin Williams! Thank you both from the bottom of my heart!! Both of you are amazing!!!!

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
