Patient Reviews
Aug 14, 2020
DR Hartshorn was great, what a lifesaver. After 45 years of weight training both my shoulder joints were bone on bone (everything I did hurt, even taking milk out of the frig) and nothing I tried, even PRP injections with another MD worked. Hartshorn knew exactly how to do the injections and today, 5 years later, my shoulders are doing pretty damn well. Of course I've had to lay off weight training like I used to, but I can crank winches on my 55ft sailboat with one hand (BIG IMPROVEMENT) AND, as an extra bonus, he is a really nice guy, the best bedside manner I've ever encountered. Both my wife and I miss him out here in Cali - She's the gal on his website in the blue shirt
