It was fantastic as I know Dr. Bredthauer. I had him before and everyone was very courteous. The only problem I had was making the appointment because it was about shoulder and I knew that he did not do shoulders but I wanted his input. Because I do not know right now and orthopedic surgeon that in case that rotator cuff is damaged. But from what he told me the other day, it's a muscle that he said if I have more problems to come back
