Dr. Song has done both my shoulders. 2 years ago for the left and 2 months ago for the right. Very please with how both came out. Horrible pain in my left is completely gone. Right shoulder is coming along great.

I couldn't even make an appointment with his staff! They instantly told me that I couldn't be helped before even trying to see what the problem was.
