Dr Aron listens, and works with you. He asked if I was willing to try something and I said no, and there was no forcing the issue. So he said surgery and I agreed, so I’m having a torn rotator cuff fixed.

I had two prior shoulder surgeries by a different doctor. My right shoulder never fully recovered and it took 5 years to finally get it fixed. My rheumatologist wanted an exploratory surgery before treating me with strong medication for RA. Several surgeons he contacted would not operate on me, arguing surgery wasn't necessary. Dr. Aron was the one that finally agreed to do it and take a look. The surgery went flawlessly, no issues. He told me he took care of quite a bit of inflammation in my shoulder and explained that was the source of my intense consistent pain and lack of motion. I am now going on 6 months of pain free recovery, it's the best I have felt in YEARS. If it wasn't for Dr. Aron agreeing to take on my case I would still be in horrible pain and extremely frustrated. I highly recommend him for any issues you may be having.

I'll never go to him again. I went to Dr. Aron on January 18th of 2019 with a trigger finger. Dr. Aron had me place my hand upside down on a hard surface and jabbed a syringe into my hand where the finger meets the hand. I screamed in pain. He didn't say anything and left the room. Over nine months later and it still hurts where the needle hit the bone. Plus I still have the trigger finger.
