    in West Jordan, UT |
    I was changing my care provider just two weeks prior to it being done. There were insurance issues. I checked to see who was on their approved list, there were many. I chose Dr. Sorensen because from my early years in nursing he was a favorite for many reasons. He is a very knowledgeable physician in orthopedic surgery. He is kind, thoughtful and reassuring. He will answer your questions and concerns, and take the extra time when needed. I never felt rushed, he did an excellent shoulder repair.
