Amazing Shoulder Surgeon

Dr. Port is an exceptional shoulder surgeon. He explains injuries clearly and allows time for conservative healing if able. He explains the fact that many shoulder tears take a long time to heal and physical therapy is painful and timely. I had a fracture and rotator tendon tear and regained full flexibility in a few months. Dr. Port also gives patients photos of your arthroscopic surgery to explain the repair. He is awesome and I am grateful to him:)
