My experience could not have been better

I broke my shoulder 18 months ago and had surgery with Dr. Chen. The results were fabulous. I would say I recovered 99% of my shoulder movement and strength, which didn't seem likely at the time. Dr. Chen is pleasant and self assured. He was also very patient with me. He knew I was afraid of surgery and tried every other method first, until I realized surgery was my best bet. I highly recommend him.
