I had the third surgery on my left shoulder. The outcome was not favorable. I'm not happy about that. But I don't think there was anything different that Dr. Buzzell could have done to make it turn out any other way. I think he did best he good. Thank you.

I appreciated all the time that was spent with me explaining in detail what was involved and I felt very comfortable in talking with both the PA and the doctor. I was very appreciated ... I appreciated the fact that I felt so comfortable and that the experience was easy and easy to make a decision. So I thank them for that.

Dr. Buzzell did surgery on my left shoulder in 2011 and I have gotten along great with it so I really wanted him to be the doctor who took care of me for my right shoulder.
