"He gave me an epidural in my neck and I am now on a pain regiment through him. Although I had been in physical therapy for a few months, Dr.
" also had me continue physical therapy for a few months. The physical therapist actually referred me to this doctor and I really am glad she did! It was so bad I couldn’t raise my arm, so I appreciated that he got to the bottom of it. I never thought I could get the pain down to a tolerable level and he has made a tremendous difference in my pain level. He has made a huge impact on the quality of my life! The office takes care of any paperwork and they are nice about it.

"Once I was a patient of the practice, scheduling has been good. He a fantastic surgeon! He is gentle when he communicates bad news. He is so skilled. There is something" about him that just makes you know that is going to be okay. He is really, very good.

Shoulder and arm orthopedics

Some orthopedic doctors specialize in the treatment of ailments affecting the musculoskeletal system of the shoulders and arms, including inflammation, fractures, tears, injuries and diseases.

Unfortunately, many people underestimate the severity of an injury to their biceps tendon and delay seeking treatment. (Photo by The San Antonio Orthopaedic Group)
Orthopedics - Shoulder & Arm

Knowing how to tell "it's just a sprain" from a serious biceps tendon tear can mean the difference between a successful surgery and lasting arm muscle weakness.

Besides cortisone shots, other treatments for shoulder pain are available, including anti-inflammatory medication and physical therapy, says Frisella. (Photo by Kiel Hauck)
Orthopedics - Shoulder & Arm, Orthopedics

Inflammation is the root cause of many problems that affect the shoulder while resting. Inflammation can result from several different underlying problems.

Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better?

Whoops - I just realized that you may have been looking for Angie's List information on providers outside your home market. To see information on providers that aren't in your home Angie's List chapter, you can elect to pay a small addditional fee (generally about $15 to $20) to add another city's Angie's List to your existing memember.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

I apologize for my delay. I apologize, but orthopedic surgeons fall under our Orthopedics category which is included in the Health list. Currently, you're enrolled in our Basic membership which only includes access to our Home list.
 
If you'd like to upgrade your membership to the Plus or Premium plan, we'll be happy to assist you with this search. If interested, give us a call at 1.888.944.5478 and we'll take care of this adjustment. Again, I do apologize for any misunderstanding.

Hi,

 

This is James W. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

 

It looks like when you signed up online on 8/5/2014, that you accidentally joined our greater Portland chapter instead of our Salem/Corvallis chapter that your zip code falls under. I have transferred your subscription to that chapter, so you will now have access to the correct area.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at 1-866-783-2980. We're open weekdays from 8:00 am - 9:00 pm and Saturdays 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET.

 

Thanks again!

I didn't know there was a shoulder specialist at the Hand Clinic, but he was that as well. I believe he fully understood the issue and treated it properly. No stress and easy to be with.

He's no-nonsense and tells it like it is. He came highly recommended to me. He's very professional and knows what he's doing; I feel confident in his work. He listens to your questions and addresses each one. I typically wait 30 minutes to be seen when I go in for my appointment.

The staff was very helpful on the phone when I inquired about my insurance and need to make sure my visit was covered.
My appointment was for 9:40. I arrived at 9:30 and the waiting room was almost filled with people. Within ten minutes all 30+ seats were taken and people were standing and leaning against the walls.
After over an hours wait I was taken to the inner waiting room where the (I am not sure if she was a nurse as she was dressed in street clothes) ASKED my weight/height which I told her. Then she asked me what my blood pressure was. I didn't know so she said, 'I guess I'll have to take it'. Then she said she was going to take me in for an X-

. I told her the doctor should have my MRI. She looked at my file (for the first time) and said, 'oh, you're right'. She left. I waited another 7 minutes and heard the doctor outside the door, (walls were very thin) say, 'I'll do that after I finish with this room (not patient)". Dr.
Los Angeles Shoulder Surgeons Provider Name Locked
was very nice, a little patronizing but to the point said that I would need surgery. He apologized for the long wait, saying everyone wanted to see the doctor during the holidays. (No excuse to overbook, my thought). He said he would be giving me two prescriptions; one for pain and a salve to put on my shoulder that would ease the pain. After 8 minutes (I had my iPad to do work so I timed my visit) the woman in street clothes came in and handed me a paper to give the billing person. I said, the doctor was giving me two prescriptions. She said she hadn't been told. She left. 4 minutes passed. She returned with one prescription. I again said, the doctor was giving me two. She left. 3 minutes passed. Another lady entered (in a uniform) and said that the doctor normally doesn't give prescriptions for pain until after the surgery. I said he told me he would. She left and returned after 6 minutes with the prescription. By this time, both the inefficiency of the support staff, the

Great! I had heard from several others what a painful surgery to expect and how bad the rehab would be. I have had none of that. The surgery went well. No pain medication after the 5th day. Rehad started after the 8th week and hasn't been painful at all. I look forward to it and am excited that after just 4 months I can go so much more than before the surgery.
