I had a torn rotator cuff which was getting progressively worse. I had tried PT first, and although it helped, my shoulder remained weak. I was not looking forward to surgery and the idea of a 6 month recovery. Dr. Nawabi is the perfect combination of highly skilled surgeon and humane. He is kind, patient, thorough, caring, and took the time to answer all my questions. Most important the surgery was tremendously successful and my recovery has been 100%.
