Patient Testimonials

Excited about the Future

“It’s been a while since my last surgery, but I just wanted you to know that I started my senior season at Conrad and my arm and knee are feeling strong.  I’m excited about the future and appreciate your help in getting me healthy so that I could continue playing competitive baseball.  I listened well and have been diligent about arm care.  Good advice!”
