I’ve only seen Dr. Willis once but he was very informative about my shoulder and explained everything to me. His staff was great and prompt with my paperwork and surgery schedule. I have a massive tear in my right shoulder and it’s very painful and there was compassion and understanding from Dr. Willis and his staff.

I just received my second shoulder surgery from Dr Willis. The first, my left shoulder, has 100% mobility and flexibility. My second rotator cuff surgery on my right arm is now ready for rehab. He was clear in explaining the problem I had, his suggestion for surgery, and now clearly explained what was actually done in the surgery. I am more than satisfied with the outcome of both surgery's and would refer anyone to Dr Willis with full confidence. Art
