About ten years ago I tore my left biceps muscle. Dr. McPherson told me unless I need to do lifting for work it did not need to be repaired. It got much worse so about a year later he did the surgery. My bicep muscle never came back. Due to his initial advice I now have a bad arm. I would not recommend.

Dr. Mcpherson was the best Dr. I have ever had. He gave me my life back again. I fell at work and tore my suprispinatis. Highly recommend him. I was in constant pain from a this accident and he cleaned it out and with an extra step having worked on Mn. Vikings players was to put a screw in to make sure it never happened again, knowing from our talks that I was an active volleyball and golfer player.
