Patient Comments (1)
in Manhattan Beach |
I got my left shoulder operated on 4 years ago and it feels like brand new. I had an old injury that kept getting worse and I finally went to see Dr. Kvitne. He was incredibly calm and never rushed me like most Dr's do these days. Being accomplished as he is, one would think you would just be a number in and out the door. That was not the case and Dr. Kvitne's bedside manner was A+. I highly recommend him for shoulder injuries.
