Dr. Anderson treated me with such kindness and did two shoulder replacements to finally save my right arm. He is a incredible doctor and also a great man. I credit him with helping turn my life around. Kindness seems to cure more than just broken bones!!

When my daughter injured her knee before a big dance performance, Dr. Parker made himself available. We were able to get the care we needed quickly. He read the MRI and called me almost immediately to discuss next steps. After spending two months under his care and following his guidance for physical therapy, we are happy to say that she is back to dancing at 100%! I highly recommend Dr. Parker.

We cannot say THANKS enough to Dr. Califf for his expertise in repairing my husband’s shoulder April 2017. My husband is currently recovering fantastically from a total knee replacement on Jan 10, 2018!  Dr. Califf has a great personality & answers any questions you have with kindness & respect. We recommend him without hesitation.
