I’m recommending him almost on a daily basis to friends, family and clients. And as a long time nurse I’m very picky about what dr’s I like and recommend.

Reverse total shoulder replacement surgery was done three months ago, and husband could not be more pleased with the pre-op, surgery itself, and followup to this date. Dr. Fagelman's explanations and instructions have been clear, and any questions we have had were addressed. The recently added patient care coordinator has stayed in contact and was invaluable immediately after the surgery. The PA is a skilled professional. Highly recommend this practice.

Dr. Fagelman, his physician assistant, nurse, xray and MRI technicians, physical therapists and front office staff rate 5 stars (10 if possible) for their combined team work to heal my injury. OrthoTexas is a one stop shop for everyone that has an ortho related health issue. I am grateful to the parishioners of my church that recommended Dr Fagleman and his staff for my care. I had torn 2 left arm rotator cuff tendons due to a fall last August. Thank you so much for the excellent care.

Dr. Fagelman took time to answer my questions; showed me on a model how he plans to do my surgery; does not rush me; gives me time to think. I highly recommend his services. It isn't always that you find a surgeon like this.

Dr. Fagelman and his staff are always very friendly and extremely prompt every time I have been in his office. Ortho Texas is a wonderful facility - always clean and the waiting area is quite comfortable. Dr. Fagelman replaced my shoulder and because of his care, I have recovered quite rapidly. I thoroughly trust his judgment and would definitely go back to him for any further orthopedic surgical needs. He is extremely proficient in his field. I would recommend him and Ortho Texas to anyone

I had excellent results from rotator cuff surgery performed by Dr. Fagleman. He and his staff are very kind, caring and professional. All my appointments were easily scheduled and I had very short wait times. I received detailed instructions about my surgery, recovery and rehabilitation afterwards. The physical therapy clinic at OrthoTexas is excellent. They took time for personal attention and provided complete instructions for home exercise. Great facility, spacious and plenty of equipment

Seven years ago I injured my elbow and was referred to Dr Fagelman by my family physician. I was very impressed with Dr. Fagelman ' s knowledge and his caring attitude. He always made me feel like I was the only patient he had. He never rushes and seriously listens to you. Earlier this year I fell and injured my wrist, hand and elbow. After a misdiagnosis by a wrist ortho the ER sent me to, I went to dr Fagelman who, correctly diagnosed the fracture and began treatment. He actually cares.

Dr. Fagelman is by far the best doctor I have had for any of my health care needs. He performed surgery on both my shoulders for a torn rotator cuff. His bedside manner is the best. He takes genuine care for his patients and answered all my questions. He was very thorough in explaining the procedures and the recovery. Also, his staff, Rich, his P.A., and Lisette, his assistant, are fantastic. They are both warm and friendly and very knowledgeable in their respective field.

How was your experience with Dr. Fagelman?

About Me

I believe in a conservative, non-operative approach to all orthopedic care when possible. Most shoulder problems can and should be initially treated with non-operative care.  Therapy is an incredible tool than can produce incredible results. &nb...
