Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Harrison "The word "doctor" originates in Latin from "to teach." I enjoy educating my patients about their specific condition, treatment options, and likely outcomes to allow the patient and I to make an informed decision together. I have extensive fellowship training in sports medicine, upper extremity and shoulder surgery. I especially welcome referrals for complex rotator cuff disorders, shoulder fractures, total shoulder replacement, reverse total shoulder replacement and revisions."

quick, easy and straight to the point talking about the issue and then treatment. Had shoulder surgery and range motion and pain was 80% better right the first week after. Definitely would come back for any other issues if occur.

He was wonderful. He spends time with his patients explaining what is going to happen. He truly cares about the success of whatever procedure he is doing. I have already recommended another patient to him and she is traveling over 900 miles to see him.
