What People Say About Dr. Samuel Mortimer, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

If having a number of procedures done on a shoulder can be classified as a fantastic experience, then having Dr. Luke definitely qualifies. The entire staff, and Dr. Luke, were most cordial, helpful and personable. As a retired health care provider I tend to be attuned to such things, wanting to be treated like I'd treat patients myself. Results were excellent, though slow as they'd predicted, and now I can use the old shoulder for any normal activities. Thanks Dr. Luke, Eric and the gang!

Dr. Mortimer made me feel comfortable from the minute I met him. He explained the surgery and answered all my questions and I felt reassured. I had a total knee surgery on Dec 15, 2015. My Christmas present was walking across the living room with no cane, no walker, no crutches and no limp for just a few steps. I made my family come in and watch like a toddler learning to walk for the first time. At 3 weeks out I walked 2 miles with no problem. No pain. I feel I have received a miracle.
