I was having shoulder pain about 10 years ago and went to seveal orthopedic doctors who recommended surgery. Went to Dr. Orwin and he immediatly knew I had a rare syndrome called Parsonage Turner. Went to PT and it was fine. I though I was having a shoulder problem 2 weeks ago and saw Dr. Orwin and he said it was a neck problem and recommended a MRI. I ended up having a cyst on my spine. He called me immediately and recommended a doctor to take care of it. He is a excellent doctor.

An arrogant guy. Plus he said he was doing the surgery, but actually passed it off to an underling. Then he lied about it. Didn't admit it until confronted with the surgical notes.

I have been off work for 5 weeks with shoulder pain. I went and saw doctor Orwin who was 45 mins late for my appointment. He spent 5 mins with me and says I need physical therapy and a cortisone shot which I have had and have not worked. I feel surgery is the best option but ignored our concerns about pt not working. I am very disappointed he is suppose to be good in his field but to me he is only after my money by dragging this out. I am getting a second option.
