in Seattle, WA |
Dr. Auld explained all my options and told me his recommendations. Dr. Auld has fixed both my shoulders. He is very skilled at what he does and both my shoulders are pain free. I highly recommend his services.

He did not explain all my options before knee replacement surgery. I still wonder today 15 years later if I really needed a replacement. I have never been out of pain. That result is not Dr. auld's fault, but I feel we did not discuss exactly what was going on.
