My wife, Karen, and I have never been around a medical staff who tried to do everything to help us and get us in to see Dr. Krishnan asap. For instance, while in NM to ski, I fell on ice and had to have medical help soon. So, Karen packed up the car the day after we arrived and she called Dr. K's office from Amarillo and we were seen in a couple of days. Dr. K and his staff worked long hours to be sure I was ok. In conclusion, Dr. K's staff should be the Medical Staff of the Year!

I like reading reviews of my Drs & THIS negative review was SO NOT TRUE! Pls allow me to set the record straight. I had a failed shoulder surgery & met Dr K. via a Dr at UTSW. He's AMAZING! Truly the BEST Shoulder Dr on the PLANET! People worldwide come to see him. My shoulder inversion was a success, mostly pain-free & quick! His staff is professional, caring & sharp; they ALL are cust. svc. oriented. He is well respected in his field & published in JAMA. I am so grateful he is my Dr!

*****BEWARE OF THIS DOCTOR's OFFICE***** Worst Dr's office I've EVER dealt with and I was in the military! This office is ran by a group of MOROONS that are incompetent and will mislead, provide misinformation and just flat out lie to get you in. Used car salesmen have more integrity! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

Dr. K performed a joint line restoration with reversed ball on my right shoulder. My experience with him and his staff at The Shoulder Center and his support team at Baylor Scott and White was excellent in all respects. Every step from my initial exam to discharge after surgery was orchestrated to put the patient first and to achieve the best results. Dr. K explained every step in this complicated surgery in terms I could understand, and patiently answered every question I asked. Thanks, Doc.

Dr Sumant Krishnan is by far the best doctor I have ever had. He did both my right and left rotator cuff surgeries in 2011. He was very knowledgeable and cares deeply about his patients, which says a lot!!

I had THREE failed rotator cuff repair surgeries done by a highly rated orthopedic surgeon, all within a 2 1/2 year period by the same surgeon. After my third failed surgery, my physical therapist recommended Dr Krishnan. I have been in constant pain since the accident in December 2013. Dr Krishnan repaired my rotator cuff and the recovery was much quicker and the pain level was much less. I cannot say enough good things about Dr Krishnan, he changed my life! Don't live with pain!

He replaced my left shoulder in 2011 and my right shoulder in 2015. He is very thorough in explaining x-rays and what will happen during surgery and then afterwards. He is very attentive to each level of care and follow-up visit. His staff is amazing! They've been happy, informative and efficient every time I've been there. This lends an air of confidence in the whole clinic!

Dr. Butch Krishnan performed a total shoulder replacement procedure for me in July of 2015. Today, in July of 2016, my shoulder is totally functional WITHOUT ANY PAIN! Dr. Butch exudes confidence and enthusiasm. He thoroughly explains, in common terms, what the problem is and the remedy. His staff is excellent. Especially the African man (sorry, I don’t remember His Name) that takes the X-Rays…exceptional professionalism and compassion. In my opinion, Dr. Butch Krishnan is THE BEST!

Went for my initial visit this past Thursday. Yes, he is a busy and wait was little long but Being in the Health field myself I truly understand. Dr. Krishnan listened and understands the pain I'm going through. He was able to explain things to where I'm able to understand what is going on. He took his time with me and by the end of the day him and is staff was great. I will recommend him to anyone

Seen by Dr. almost 90 minutes late on initial appointment. Was told that day I would get a follow up call Thursday to discuss diagnosis. Thursday call never happened. Late in day one of his staff called me to reschedule the missed Thursday follow up call. Weld use. scheduled for Friday morning between 9am and 10am. At 9:55am, no call had been received so I called them. Got some excuse from one of his staff. Reminded me of the dog ate my homework type of back pedaling story used by a child

Dr Krishnan was wonderful & personable. His office help is a problem in my opinion. Was referred by my PT. Made appt told them what my insurance was nothing was said about a problem. Went to appt. Dr Krishnan ordered X-rays told what was the matter and he thought he could help me. Was sent for more tests. Never heard back from them on anything. Called & was spoken to rudely & told don't take my insurance. No explanation

It's hard to express the gratitude I have for Dr Krishnan. To me he's a rock star, a blessing of skill and compassion. He even tolerates my endless questions! He has surgically repaired both my shoulders. He's supportive and encouraging when I need it, laughs with me when I do something stupid and always lets me know what his plan is and why he's making those recommendations. Five months after the most recent repair and I'm back in the pool swimming 2500 Meters - I can't imagine better results.
