Everyone that I came into contact with at the Shoulder Clinic was very helpful, professional and met every expectation that I had. Dr Chopp and Kelly Vincent did a great job on my shoulder. Peggy Jackson was a joy to work with. TV Hospital was very welcoming & did a great job. I am recovering very well and expect to be back to my normal routines very soon. I already am able to practice archery at 3 1/2 months after surgery. Only issue is withdrawals from not seeing the clinic folks. :-)

I had both my shoulders taken care of. The surgery was excellent & the post surgery was excellent. I am without pain and in the process of developing strength in both shoulders. Dr. Chopp and his staff did an outstanding job in helping me get through this experience. Thank you!!

Dr Chopp gave specific details on my choices. He is very thorough on everything. He's a perfectionist and that's good in a surgeon. His PA Kelly Vincent is Also awesome as well as the rest of the staff.

The Shoulder Clinic in Boise are all geared on your care. Dr. Chopp deals with all types of people; his honing down to the problem, evaluating all data from many sources. Kelly Vincent his P.A.-C; another keen listener, is very helpful and informative throughout the procedure and the recovery period. The forethought that Dr. Chopp has put into his pre & post surgery plan is detailed and impressive. Peggy Jackson, his R.N is exceptional. I am grateful for their superior skills and care.

Don't know the names office personnel but they were always cheerful to talk to. Peggy was a great help in scheduling appointment for surgery. Kelly was very helpful after the surgery I saw her several times afterwards. Dr. Chopp was excellent in the years leading up to the surgery, finally was decided that it was time to replace the shoulder. The surgery went way better then I thought. All were very professional, caring, thoughtful and easy to talk to and spent the time to listen to our concern

I was referred to Dr. Chopp from the pain center in Boise by Dr. Binegar. I initially tried conservative treatment with injections. After a period of time, without improvement in my shoulder pain, we decided to proceed with surgery. Since surgery, my pain and range of motion has improved He has a great staff who are all very personable. Peggy (his nurse) is an absolute jewel! Dr. Chopp is a great doctor, he does great work and he pays attention to his patients. I would recommend anyone.

Dr. Chopp is awesome!!!!! He spends the time needed with patients and explains everything in detail from the issue causing the problems to the details expected during surgery and post surgery. I saw 3 different doctors for my shoulder injury (SLAP5 TEAR) and am happy to happy to have chosen him for the procedure. Although I was hesitant at first with his conservative approach to healing and post surgery therapy, I definitely appreciate his approach as I am having than a 90% recovery 8 mo later
