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

I am a 52 yr old female, living with Rheumatoid arthritis & Fibromyalgia since age 35 & I live in Boise, ID. In June of 2010 I tore up my left shoulder beyond fixing after trying to get a 1/2 gallon of milk out of fridge. My right shoulder already was a non-moving body part due to 4 Labral and Cuff tear surgeries. So my doc here went on a search for someone to perform the "REVERSE ROTATOR CUFF REPLACEMENT" in my left shoulder at age 50, a surgery not recommended till one is over 60. After going to U of U then almost every shoulder doc here and 1 other doc in Seattle no one said yes. Then on Oct. 8, 2010 I flew up and saw Dr. Warme. After seeing Alex, his PA then, and the doc, within 30 minutes we were setting up a surgery date.

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

There is ONE thing that stands out mostly about the doc and team is THEY ARE AWESOME!!! Nurse Steve is and will always be one of the top of the line RN's on earth. Every single person from Pre-op to the OR to Post-op to In-patient were the best!!!! Only flaw worthy of saying is there was NO Dr. Pepper anywhere to be found then the good doc brought me some!!!!

Show me the whole story...
