I tore my rotator cuff and bicep in an auto accident. Had heard horror stories about the surgery and post op. PT. Three months post off, I am feeling better than I have felt in years! Dr. Shapiro was great at explaining all the options, and his aftercare was amazing!

Dr. Shapiro correctly identified my shoulder issues and recommended a course of action to fix the problems. He performed my shoulder surgery and manipulation procedure at their Wallingford location. Couldn't ask for a smoother operation. Shoulder works great. I've got my arm back. Thank you Dr. Shapiro!
