I'm not looking forward to shoulder surgery, but feel confident this Dr. & staff will help guide me through it as comfortably as possible.

Yes, my appointment with us was on Tuesday. And this is 6 o'clock on Friday night, and I still have not heard from the doctor or his nurse. I was supposed to have an MRI. My shoulder is still hurting like mad, but he did not. Tell me anything I could do or what. It's just hurting yet. He didn't say anything. He just said he'd get back to me and I'm still waiting.
