      I am IN AWE of Dr. Shea - and his staff. They are punctual to a fault. They spend whatever time you need with you. And they are friendly and VERY supportive. Dr. Shea himself is a master. I had a total shoulder replacement 4-7-16. Two weeks later, my physical therapist could not believe what shape my shoulder was in. He even bragged about me - and Dr. Shea - all over the department. I continue to make an astonishing recovery. I am in Dr. Shea's debt - I have my life back!

      I was recommended to Dr. Shea by my original Orthepaedic. While telling me he was the best, he warned me I might hear contrary opinions, but they were not true. In 3 years I have had 5 surgeries by Dr. Shea, and he is the BEST! I had a complicated shoulder that for no fault of the good Dr. was not responsive to the repairs. But through many discussions with Dr. Shea, we pursued the next step. Finally the Reverse Replacement has the answer! I highly recommend Dr. Shea!

      I can't understand some of the the bad reviews about Dr.Shea. Dr. She did a reverse shoulder replacement and I was not the perfect candidate for surgery (according to another Orthopaedic Surgeon,). Dr. Shea came very highly recommended by others and my regular Dr. said that Dr. Shea was the best. My surgery went great. His bedside manner and each of my follow up appointments were all excellent. He has a great personality and he is very forth coming on my surgery and my recovery.
