Shoulder Surgery

Amazing surgeon, very informative staff and doctor. More things explained in his office than any other medical facility in life. Excellent pre and after surgery care. very well pleased with my results from 15 months ago, no negative reports to give. Would highly recommend Dr Carolan and his staff.

What a great doctor who wants to get you in better shape.

My mother made an appointment on Wednesday and we had an appointment that next Monday. When I went in there he said so what's going on I told him and he said he took time out of his life at night to look at my MRI and I so appreciative for him doing that. After he stretched my leg to find how far my mobility in my leg has come. He asked me when I want to have my surgery, I told him later that day and he laughed even though it wasn't funny to make me feel comfortable. So he said he said he could do Wednesday or Friday I told him Wednesday and he went out with me to the receptionist to make sure everything went smoothly and called the physical therapist he said I should have and made sure I could have a continuos meeting with him if that's who I wanted to go with. Anybody who says he not good is an ignorant moron who don't know what they are talking about. And to the person who said he doesn't do feet that is your fault for not knowing your doctor. I recommend him to anybody he's that good.

Unclear, condescending, & rude

Dr Carolan is apparently a good surgeon (just ask him) but doesn't know how to talk to people. He's rude & post op instructions are extremely unclear as he is so quick to get out of the room. Told me I can walk after 3 weeks, PT disagreed & put me on a different program. He blamed me for this. Had he said at the follow up "we used to do it this way but now it's just 3 weeks" I couldve told PT & I'd be on schedule. He shows no empathy & will cut you off where he can. Very argumentative & condescending. Still have so many questions. He just literally will not let me ask them.

Sometimes you get LUCKY

Sometimes you just get lucky. After choosing the wrong Doctor for my first shoulder replacement which failed miserably, Dr Carolan was recommended to me as the shoulder guy. What a find!! Dr Carolan of St. Lukes Orthopedics not only removed the splintered remains of my totally disconnected shoulder, but skillfully installed a complete reverse shoulder in a 3 1/2 hour surgery. For the first time in five years I am pain free. My recuperation time was brief and totally without complications, thanks to Dr. Carolan's expertise. This total success was truly amazing compared to my previous experience. Not only was Dr. Carolan a master at his craft, but was also extremely pleasant, always optimistic, and totally involved with my recovery process. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
