Dr. Follweiler is the most caring and gifted surgeon I have ever encountered. I have never thought twice about returning to him for a second injury due to his knowledge. I have referred friends to him because of my trust in him. Even his staff is exceptional. From his P.A. Chris, to the Nurses and M.A',to the receptionists this is a very professional group.

Dr Follweiler did my shoulder surgery one year ago. Everything went smoothly, he kept me informed each step along the way, was sympathetic to my pain (of course there will always be pain) and was friendly and approachable. His assistant, Chris Muniz, was also excellent and I cannot see any of the four entry point scars. My shoulder is great and I am back to playing tennis 4 times a week! Thank you, doctors!

Dr. Follweiler was incredibly respectful and kind. Both of the times I went in for an appointment he was extremely helpful, and always he was clear in explaining medical information. I highly recommend Dr. Follweiler, he is an excellent doctor.

I was having horrible pain with my knee and was scheduled to leave town to care for a family member after brain surgery.He performed surgery on my knee on a day he does not do surgery. He performed my surgery prior to going to his office to see patients. I didn't know there was a doctor like him left anymore. He is so open, caring, modest and empathetic. He is a hero in my book.The entire atmosphere in that clinic is caring. The staff is as helpful and caring as the doctor.
He did the surgery on my shoulder to repair a torn supra scapula muscle. Shoulder feels like it did when I was a teen
