Briefly describe your symptoms and the medical condition that brought you to see the doctor.

I had pain in my shoulder, which started rock climbing and got worse over time.

What one or two things stand out to you about your experience with your doctor and their team?

Throughout the entire process, I felt extremely well taken care of. I had a ton of questions, some of which I'm sure I asked more than once, and every time, Dr. Warme and his team gave me all the time I needed to become comfortable with the diagnosis, procedure and prognosis. The team also took the time to get to know me and what I am typically demanding of my shoulders, and from that base of knowing me quite well, they were able to make the best recommendations for the best approach to surgery and recovery.

They gave me a lot of confidence things would be done well and with care, and they were.
