I am very BLESSED and GRATEFUL I chose him. Thank you Dr. Stephens for all you have done !! Also every staff employee is also AWESOME ! Everyone had me feeling like family. Michelle is AWESOME as well. !

Can't say enough about the outcome of my shoulder diagnosis, surgery and rehab(currently). Dr. Stephens proved to be a very up front and factual surgeon, and follow up was open, honest, and I knew just what to expect after procedure and rehab. Dr. Scott made sure I knew everything I needed to know and MADE SURE I was completely aware of, and knew all of his recommendations and warnings. His going the little extra distance made my my unfortunate experience(injury) so much easier to handle.

An accident in May 2016 resulted in a dislocated shoulder and tears to three of the tendons in my left rotator cuff. Dr. Stephens performed surgery in late June and the results are better than I expected or hoped for. Eleven weeks after surgery, my range of motion is improving daily and I expect a complete recovery in the coming months. Dr. Stephens is a highly skilled surgeon, and I appreciated his compassion and professionalism throughout this process. I highly recommend him.

I waited a little longer than I had expected but the staff did say he had an emergency. Once I did get back to see him it was worth the wait. He paid attention to me! Unheard of in todays fast paced world. He spent time explaining my diagnosis...went over treatment options and I am feeling better. My shoulder has bothered me for months and I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you Dr. Stephens!

He was very patient and knowledgeable. Discussed all possible treatment options for my shoulder. Was very easy to talk to and I had a great experience.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Stephens. I have had a wonderful experience with him and would highly recommend any patient who has shoulder pain to go see him. He didn't just rush into surgery but instead got to know me. I had a torn rotator cuff and he was able to repair it by using a scope and I have had a full recovery with no problems since the surgery. I have already recommended him to family members.
I explained I had 3 issues with my foot, leg spasm and back pain. He only addressed the worst out of the 3 and I left not knowing if the other 2 were related. I was in too much pain to ask. I do not think he was thorough with his explanation. But he did seem knowledgeable. I called the nurse to ask and she has yet to call back. I felt rushed.
