Thanks so much, Dr. F. and Ray!
I had right rotator cuff surgery in July 2015, courtesy of the esteemed Dr. Jeffrey Furmanek, and follow- up care with your PT Ray. From the get-go, I was taken care, told what would be best with no doubts from me, and pushed to more I thought I could be. If I have to have the other shoulder done, too, I’m heading straight for your offices. Thanks so much, Dr. F. and Ray! Feeling GREAT!!! Can reach farther and feel so much better these days!
Jeffrey Furmanek, D.O.
