Patient Comments (5)

I consider myself very lucky to have found Dr. Abdulian! I had a torn labrum and rotator cuff in my right shoulder and Dr. Abdulian fixed me right up! I’m as good as new now and I can get back to exercising, picking my children up and spotting my gymnasts on their tricks. Not only is Dr. Abdulian...more
