I had a Left Reverse Shoulder Replacement in April 2017 and a Right Reverse Shoulder Replacement in November 2018. Both experiences were excellent. Dr. Gobezie is kind, compassionate and shows genuine concern for his patients. He and his staff are highly organized and very professional. Maggie Franklin

From start to finish, Dr. Gobezie, Dr. Chris (sorry, Chris, forgot your last name) and the rest of the staff was wonderful. I had a total shoulder replacement with a particular worrisome (for me) issue. Dr. Gobezie and staff provided education, support, step-by-step descriptions of the procedure and most importantly, care and compassion. I cannot express my gratitude enough and I would never hesitate to recommend Dr. Gobezie. vh

I have been to various specialists for orthodpedic situations over many years. My visit to Dr. Gobezie was just fantastic. He took the time to talk over my options in a clear manner and was just a delightful person. It is really gratifying to find an expert in the field and see results. If you need injections, he uses what I think is a fluoroscope to see exactly where to put the injection, unlike previous doctors that just guess. I am so thankful for Dr. Gobezie and his wonderful staff!

I never waited for more than 10 minutes in the office. The office personnel are friendly and helpful. Dr. Gobezie provided details about the procedure and recovery time. His assistants also were very knowledgeable and put me at ease. I have recommended Dr. Gobezie to many people.

You couldn't ask for a better surgeon capable not only to perform the surgery but also making his patient understand and feel comfortable with the process.

I was in a motorcycle accident and had a TBI and broken shoulder. After 2 other doctors we found Dr. Gobezie. The most compassionate, kind hearted, man, physician ever. He did my reverse shoulder. Great job. I have a new tattoo and worried about him cutting into it. He went around it, and left a barely visible scar. He is Tony Stark in my eyes. Best surgeon ever.

From Orlando flew to have my reverse shoulder surgery. Best decision I ever made. I saw 3 other surgeons prior to choosing Dr. Gobezie. They each said my surgery would take 2-3 hours, I would be in the hospital 2-3 days and in a sling for 12 weeks after that. Dr. Gobezie did my surgery in 35 minutes as an outpatient. I was in a sling for 1 week. Started rehab on my shoulder right away. The most amazing part was that I came off my pain meds 4 days post op. This guy should be teaching other docs.

I traveled from Erie, Pennsylvania to have unresolved tendinitis and frozen shoulder treated by Dr. Gobezie. He explained the surgical procedure and follow up treatment thoroughly and within six months of surgery I had full range of motion restored. The office wait time was minimal, the staff was efficient, and Dr. Gobezie was a clear communicator with a positive attitude. I would highly recommend Dr. Gobezie and the Cleveland Shoulder Institute as they restored my quality of life.

I feel very lucky to have encountered Dr. Gobezie and his practice. I have been very pleased with the outcome of both of my shoulder replacements. The staff is professional and compassionate, they seem genuinely interested in you. They prepare you well for what to expect during and after surgery. I take every opportunity to recommend Dr. Gobezie to anyone who complains of shoulder problems. Annette in Chardon OH

I have had 25 operations in my lifetime. Dr. Gobezie ranks with the best doctors I have seen. This surgeon is a gift from God! If you are having shoulder issues call his office now and make an appointment. He will steer you in the right direction toward better health. He will spend as much time with you in the office as you need to understand your shoulder problems. A rarity in today's medical world. A+++ in my book.

Dr. Reuben Gobezie, is a excellent doctor. He is very caring and dedicated. Your health is his top priority. He listen to your concerns and issues and explains to you what needs to be done to make you whole again. Dr. Gobezie, doesn't take lightly the pain you may be in or the care that you may need. His staff is as dedicated as he is. I encourage you to look at what he treats from A-Z and make an appointment. You won't be disappointed. He is the best.

Dr. Gobezie did a reverse right shoulder replacement on me in June. I have zero pain plus complete movement, with the exception of reaching behind my back. However, I haven’t been able to do that in years! I knew I was having pain before but didn’t realize how much pain I had been in until it was gone! I’d recommend Dr. Gobezie to anyone having shoulder issues!

I was blown away by Dr. Gobezie's bedside manner, as well as his efficiency in pinpointing my problem, and giving me a solution that worked! While I certainly appreciate his skill, his demeanor was also of high quality.

I have been raving about the good results of my total reverse should replacement to friends and family. In a week and a half I was driving. Not too much pain, and increasingly less pain as days progressed. I can now reach very high with my right arm. Nothing but good to say.
