He did an exceptional job repairing my rotator cuff.

Dr and Pa are very dissmissive. I still am experiencing pain several months after surgery. At this point i should be feeling much better my physical therapist expressed her concerns and I was told she is wrong and i should go see my primary care physician cause I am fine and I no longer need to see him. So now i am in the process of seeking out a new Dr to look at my shoulder. I have never quite seen a Dr not deal with symptoms after surgety. I would think that is also part pf his job?????

Extremely rude, condescending, and dismissive.. Will say anything to get you to get a surgery but after you do anything more to follow up and you are a nuisance to him..

Dr. Thomas Holovacs is an outstanding surgeon. I experienced a massive rotator cuff & bicep tendon tear. Add impingments and significant bursitis. He did a complete repair of the shoulder. Procedure was accomplished using arthroscopy. After a 3 1/2 hour surgery I was placed in post op - sent home that afternoon. My recovery was amazing. In 4 days back in bed for sleeping. Only medication was Tylenol. After 4 weeks of PT, I am completely healed. I am 70 years old. He is simply amazing.
