I was very satisficed when I was waiting to see Dr. Shirley to see me, I didn't wait that long in the waiting this time. When they called my name to go the examine room, I waited about 15 to 20 minutes and was seen by Dr. Shirley. He gave me my injections to my knees and I was out in 10 minutes, I was signed out in 10 minutes and was on my way. Thank you Dr. Shirley you are the best in my book God bless you!

Unfortunately i had my appointment date wrong but they made room for me anyway. I dont have a car and had to find someone to bring me besides. So this office is very accommodating plus Dr Shirleys skilled hands makes the cortisone shot painless.

Had a great appointment with the good Dr. Shirley. He listened to my knee issues, and gave me recommendations. After getting knee injections (Dr. Shirley gives a great shot!!), I walked out feeling so much better. Highly recommend Dr. Shirley for all “knee needs”!

Dr. Shirley has been my knee doctor since the 1990's. He has kept me going all these years without yet needing a knee replacement, from a knee injury I sustained over 40 years ago. He is excellent!
