Dr. Fan was great. I was able to discuss my concerns with him and had a thorough conversation about different diagnostic tools and treatment option. I have no hesitation recommending him to anyone.

Very kind, obviously extremely bright but never talks down to me. At 76 I am facing a 2nd reverse shoulder replacement. It is a difficult recovery but the pain level Is now extreme.

Dr. Fan explained what the MRI findings were and asked me what my goal was. I told him my goal and then he explained my 2 options. He then asked me what I would like to do.
