“Very knowledgeable, provided much information about my situation and some possible repairs to my torn Rotator Cuff. My surgery went well, in recovery Dr. Zechmann came and let me no that the repair went very well, that was very good news to hear. It has been four and a half months since the surgery and my shoulder area feels great and the function is almost back to normal. I am very thankful for having such a great doctor and his assistant, PA Owen Harris. I have nothing but good praise for the doctors and staff.”
