Dr. Phipatanakul truly saved me from getting a reverse shoulder replacement that another doctor said that I needed and was scheduled. After 3 months of use my shoulder is getting stronger and I hope to never need a replacement. He really cares about all people and I am blessed to have chosen him as my doctor.

I had two shoulder surgeries, after a bad break, with limited results. Then Dr. Phipatanakul did a reverse shoulder repair 10 years ago. I saw him yesterday to confirm that everything was still working well (the titanium implant) and it is. His surgery gave me much more range of motion and I am still very pleased with the results.

My experience with Dr. Phipatanakul has been great. It has been 5 months and so far I am very happy with the results of my shoulder surgery. My range of motion is nearly back to normal. It continues to improve. I am looking forward to resuming the physical activities I enjoy. Dr. Phipatanakul was always upbeat, positive and made me feel very comfortable from the very start. He took the time to hear me out and then explained things thoroughly. I would definitely recommend Dr. Phipatanakul.
