I am an avid (6 years/5.11) rock climber. I injured my shoulder and kept on reinjuring it for a year. I was diagnosed with a torn labrum by Dr. Paulos. I was terrified of surgery. Dr. Paulos was very understanding and sent me to physical therapy. I became stronger, not better, and I chose surgery....more

Dr. Paul's is a great Doctor. I had him do a Mumford procedure to my right shoulder he has completely taken the pain away. His bed side manner is great. He speaks to you as a friend would unlike most DR. I wish he could be my primary Doctor. This Dr is amazing.
