Jim S – Oct 10, 2020
I had two surgeries on my left shoulder, the first surgery was done by another doctor and I was less than happy with the results. I took a chance on having a second operation, it was done by Dr. Viess and I could not be happier with the results. I trust him so much I will have my right shoulder surgery done by Dr. Viess as well. He is exceptional at his craft!
