Dr. Postma met me prior to, and after the surgery, explained every step, and took the time to put me at ease. His PA was a reassuring presence as well.

We truly have an exceptional surgical team at Lakeland Hospital Watervliet. With my left shoulder surgical procedure, I had minimal discomfort and minimal swelling.
