I have seen Dr. Rynning for over 10 years. Over that time he has given me several shots for hip bursistis, rotator cuff pain, and finally for a rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder. He always has time to listen and explain ex-rays, procedures and answer questions. He is kind, compassionate, experienced and he truly hears what you say. I can highly recommendation him for your orthopedic care.

Dr. Rynning took the time to learn who I am and what I'm about, what I put my shoulder through in the course of my life, and what I expect to do with it going forward. He helped me plot a course to recovery without sugar coating it, letting me know what I could expect if I did my part in the recovery process. His high level of confidence is backed 100% by his skill as a surgeon. I have full mobility restored. I've seen my share of docs over the years, and I place him right at the top.

If you want a Doctor who is compassionate and collaborative, go see Dr. Rynning. I injured my shoulder in October and X-rays lead us to think I would need a shoulder replacement. 6 weeks of PT and MRI results changed our roadmap to a rotator cuff repair. Dr. Rynning answered all of my questions in a thoughtful manner. He is easy to talk to and overall an awesome person. I did not ever think I would be happy to have a surgery. I am glad I found Dr. Rynning to help me with my shoulder injury.

Dr. Rynning is the best! He takes a lot of time with his patients and explains complicated procedures. He is very confident, which made me feel confident as well. I had a total shoulder replacement and immediately I felt better than I had in several years. He has a great bedside manner, and is kind and compassionate. I would highly recommend him.

I went to Dr Rynning after having a failed rotator cuff repair. My arm/shoulder was partially paralyzed. He performed a reverse total shoulder replacement and today (7 months later) I can lift my arm above my head. His bed side manner is excellent. He's patient and understanding. He explained everything to me and encouraged me all along the way. I can recommend him without any reservations!
in Coronado, CA |
Dr. Rynning provided excellent surgical intervention. His staff were disappointing. I went three weeks with a humerus broken in three pieces because they never once followed up with my insurance to find out why authorization wasn't given. AND they did that even though I called 3-4 times to inform them that my insurance hadn't received a request for surgery. The last time I told them they were submitting their request to the wrong number. Close to negligence.

Dr. Rynning is a top notch orthopedic surgeon. He specializes in Shoulder and Elbow surgery. His main concern is the patients well being. He is compassionate and caring. If you have a shoulder or elbow issue I highly recommend him.
