How likely are you to recommend Dr. McCarty?

(Select your rating)
It was 2 years since my r. shoulder rotator cuff repair. Dr. McCarty was awesome, as was his PA. Unfortunately, I am now facing the same terrible pain in my left shoulder. Shoulder repair surgery is the most painful surgery. I had my surgery in September 2017, still, at Thanksgiving we went to dinner and I was in a partial sling with my tens and ice. It was not a picnic. If you are not in excruciating pain, forget it. I've been following the rehab exercises as I did prior to surgery on the r. I'm certain the same fate will occur. I truly regard McCarty as the best. At my 1 week follow up back in 2017, a woman say across from me waiting for the surgeon. She proceeded to tell another woman that she had 2 tear repairs and both failed. She had no choice but to try again. Her story stuck in mind, I trust Dr. McCarty's procedure was a success. Courage/Allina have the best.
