Dr Ghidella is a gift from our higher power, I was injured at work, and placed in the Doctors hands to surgically repair my shoulder. My age is 58. The care I received is incredible. Dr Ghidella listened to me and we started our journey foreword. The care and compassion from all that are involved gave me the mental fortitude to do my best in my rehab. I am blessed to have the best physician, therefore, its my turn to give my best efforts in my recovery and I am working our plan every day.
