What People Say About Dr. Michael Rytel, MD

Told me a surgery couldn't be undone, & the surgery really never took & my labrum was ripped off the socket by the anchors from the surgery that never should've been done. Lady in his office said he didn't want to touch me bc I saw another Dr. so he was more afraid of a lawsuit happening than me being out of pain. Thanks for making me lose $, work leave & suffer longer!! I DO NOT Recommend!!!

Fantastic results! Dr. Rytel repaired my shoulder. I did not require any pain meds post-op and 10+ years later my shoulder still feels great!

Terrible...he spent 5 mins with me and told me I was a medical mystery. Instead of referring me to someone else, he scheduled me back in a week.
