Great surgeon

Dr. Dorizas gave me back movement in my shoulder. I work in an ER and I was limited movement and in lots of pain. My recovery time was very limited on pain meds and today I feel as if I never had any damage at all. I have COMPLETE movement of my right arm without any limitations.

Dr. Dorizas performed my daughter's second shoulder surgery. He is an excellent doctor. Very knowledgable as well as very kind & caring. I would highly recommend him to anyone requiring orthopaedic surgery/treatment! He prayed with us before the surgery as well which was so comforting to know we had a surgeon who realizes his dependence upon God. So thankful we had him as her doctor!!
