Dr. Shani did surgery hip surgery on my mom March 30, 2017. I haven't seen him since. He has NOT been to her room to check on her . I thought he was ok because I saw him with my church member who had knee surgery that he (shani) performed.

Dr. Shani repaired my distal biceps tendon and I was amazed how quickly I recovered. He used a minimally invasive technique with a small incision. Got my strength back with no problems. He explained the entire process and got me back in the weight room and I am feeling great!!
