Absoltely amazing

After several misdiagnosis from other physicians, after a car accident, I finally had a MRI done of my shoulders, which showed a lot of issues. He is the first doctor who took me serious and stated I needed surgery on each shoulder. There was a lot more damage than he had anticipated once he started surgery. After surgery he explained the procedure and what to expect to my dad in a very patient manner. Dr. Liljenquist is kind, takes the time to explain the medical procedure and the results and genuinely cares about his patients. He takes the time to explain medical procedures in a language that you can understand and his bedside manner shows that he truly cares. After 3 years of pain and being shuffled from one doctor to another, I am hopeful that the surgeries will take care of the pain and the issues I have suffered with. I absolutely trust Dr. Liljenquist's expertise and for the first time in a long time I am hopeful. Thank you so much Dr. Liljenquist, you have restored my faith in the medical community.

Surgical treatment

My experience with Dr. Liljenquist was exceptional! He was very courteous in his explanation of my problem and very effective in the surgical correction of it. Except for a very tolerable (and expected, of course)amount of post- operative pain, the entire experince with Dr. Liljenquist AND his staff was nothing BUT pleasant!
