Patient Comments (5)

Dr. Sorrell is one of the most caring physicians I have ever been treated by (Left shoulder surgery). Would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. In addition to myself, he has treated my father twice (hip replacement and biceps tendon repair), my nephew (broken arm), my stepmom (rotator cuff)...more

Dr. Sorrell has performed surgery on me for a torn rotator cuff and both knees for a torn meniscus. He has also performed extensive rotator cuff surgery on my husband. He is a very caring, kind doctor who listens to a patient's concerns. He is willing to explore other treatments before surgery. ...more

Dr. Sorrell is the most kind and patient OS in Birmingham. He takes the time to listen and is never quick to do surgery. If you need a great doctor who pays close attention to your individual needs, Dr. Sorrell is the best! Also, his PA Greg is just as amazing.
