Let me start off by telling you a little about my injuries. "Right Shoulder Injury 14 years ago 1995. Needed partial replacement done in 2009.Before this had several injection done.Dr.Nepola will explain everything clearly to you before any procedures or surgery.He will go into great detail about what you as his patient can expect.Dr.Nepola performed a, total shoulder replacement, as well on me.

A absolute wonderful man. Who doesn't not waste time and gives an accurant diagnosis and gives you your options the same day. I loved the way he said these are your choices, think about it, and then we will fix the problem. Wish surgery could have been scheduled a lot sooner then it was - 2 months out is a long wait.
