"WOW! A common question following surgery from friends and loved ones is, "How are you feeling?" It is very simple, Wow! After an exhaustive search for the right Doctor, I am happy to report that the wait was worth it. Dr. Matthew Cunningham is second to none. Dr. Cunningham's diagnosis was perfect. He spent quality time with me, answered all the questions I had. What impressed me the most was his calm and comforting demeanor. "

"I separated my right shoulder in 1995, the Dr. said the only that would help was time. By 2011, not being able to reach across my desk at work to answer the phone, I sought help. The Drs. out on eastern LI kept giving me cortisone shots, to no avail. Dr. Beth Shubin Stein performed the surgery. I was on my way home 5 hrs later. I have not had such range of motion in 16 years, now with little or no pain."
