My daughter has been seeing Dr. Bush Joseph for over 2 years with 2 different shoulder issues – one that ultimately required surgery (bicep tenodesis) to get her back to her sport of water polo. CBJ is thorough, honest, straightforward, compassionate and a darn good surgeon. It's such a relief to be able to trust your doc 100%. He and his PA Travis Smith make a great team! They truly care about your overall well-being, recovery and return to play. So grateful. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
