I would give this doctor a zero. He was in a rush, didn’t explain the problem because for him bursitis is very common. For me the pain is very real and constant. Didn’t tell where to make therapy appointment , said you need anti inflammatory but didn’t prescribe anything. It was like get out. The girls there were equally bad. Hopeless place. I’m so angry at the doctor.

I went to see Dr Martin for a torn biceps tendon. Every visit was a minimum 1.5 hr-2.5 hr wait!!! My experience was quantity vs quality! I can understand a 15-30 delay on occasions, but to have to wait 2.5 hrs when you had an appt is ridiculous!!! I decided to go to a different surgeon to do the repair because of the horrible wait times

Dr Sheldon is very knowledgeable and doesn’t beat around the bush with unnecessary treatments. Has a very dry personality, but he’s my doc and doesn’t need to be my best friend!
