I have a chronic shoulder problem. Finally went to the correct specialty after 30 years. Had injections and therapy Nov. 2016. Recently tweaked it and needed to go back. Asked for pain meds for the worst days since I hand unload trailers for a living. Was lectured about if I need pills, then maybe I nee d surgery instead. Huh? I made it clear I wasn't looking for a lifelong refill. I was warned surgery doesn't always make it better by their therapists. In all fairness, I was seen by P.A. Rae.

Dr. Bartholomew did a knee replacement on me and has left me with a uncomfortable life. I've had 6 surgeries on this one knee, one partial replacement, one total knee replacement and then several infections that would not go away. I trusted Dr. Bartholomew and it's not right that I'm left with this knee that can't bend,very bad nerve damage, plus I don't have a great balance. My life is terrible since the first surgery and if I knew what I know now, I wouldn't have had NO surgery at all

Took my brother there who is mentally handicapped. He was considerate, explained things to him and there was minimal pain in the procedure of a cortisone injection into his shoulder.
