Dr Lavery is and excellent doctor and he did a great job explaining what was going on with my right shoulder. He operated and reattached 2 tendons to my left shoulder blade in 2018 and I am having no problem with my left shoulder rotator cuff. If I need to have surgery on my right shoulder rotator cuff, I definitely want Dr Lavery to perform the operation and repair.

Great experience Dr Lavery, the nurse and x-ray staff were fantastic. Did not like wearing a mask.

The Dr I saw was very friendly and knowledgeable. I left the office having no additional questions and was very pleased with the overall experience.
