What People Say About Dr. Nathan Formaini, DO

I had a shoulder replacement by a very reputable ortho surgeon in Natrona Heights. I went thru great pain with no relief for 6 months. This surgeon always seemed too busy to listen to my complaints and would not take any additional xrays to see if there was an issue with the new shoulder replacement. I ended up looking elsewhere for someone who could help me since I still could not lift my arm. My son told me about Dr. Formaini aka Dr. Nate who specializes in shoulders. When I met him, his smile and friendliness instantly made me feel at ease. The very first visit, he took xrays from different angles which showed my brand new shoulder replacement was dislocated and would never work. He scheduled surgery the following week and did a reverse shoulder conversion replacement, which he would have done in the first place due to my extensive arthritis. After surgery, I felt better. Two weeks later, I am able to lift my arm and the pain is minimal. Dr. Formaini takes xrays at every visit.

Armstrong County is lucky to have such a gifted physician. He's done rotator cuff surgery on one shoulder and shoulder replacement on the other. It is so nice to be pain free, finally. I like to get feedback from physical therapists because they see the orthopedic patients for a lot of time post surgery. The therapists speak very highly of Dr. Formaini. That's why I chose him and I'm glad I did. Additionally, he is very friendly and courteous.
