Dr. Shirley has been my doctor for 40 years. He is an amazing doctor and an amazing man. He has done several surgeries on my knee. He has consoled me, supported me and always makes me laugh. I’m so glad that he is my doctor and my friend.

I had a shattered kneecap from an accident and ended with a stiff leg. Two respected surgeons said there was nothing they could do. Then I was recommended Dr. Paul Shirley. He walked in, checked out the knee and said "Let's get X-rays and I'll tell you what I can do" He thought he might be able to get 120 degree bend and to go away and think about it. I scheduled right there and then. Lots of hard work and therapy but today I have 130 degrees. The man's a genius and has my eternal gratitude!

Dr. Shirley served as my mom's workers compensation doctor for more than 3 years & he is the MOST PERSONABLE doctor I've ever met! He was friendly and super competent. He addressed all of my mother's concerns & answered all of her questions without making her feel foolish. When he recommended knee replacement surgery we asked for the best & we got the best with Dr. Max Lincoln. I'll forever be grateful with how Dr. Shirley handled my mom. Apparently he's recognized nationally. Now I know why!
