Shoulder Patient - Sports Injury

If you are reading this review, then you must be going through what I went through a little over a year ago, looking for a good doctor. I was living with severe shoulder pain from years of playing tennis (Eastern Michigan University), as well as being active in martial arts for over 20 years. It was during a family vacation when the frustration became too much, and I told myself that I needed to get my shoulder repaired. I couldn’t throw a ball, nor raise my arm – I could not reach overhead storage space to get to my dishes.

It was impossible to get a good night’s sleep. I was miserable. It was my chiropractor in Moline who recommended that I went to see Doctor Foad. I am so glad that I did. Not only is Doctor Foad a wonderful and caring doctor, he is also a genuinely nice person. Not to mention, his expertise and knowledge in shoulder repair is beyond compare. And if Doctor Foad doesn’t feel that it is something he is comfortable operating on, he will not hesitate in recommending you to a doctor whom he trusts (this is speaking from a personal experience involving my husband).

There are a couple of familiar orthopedic establishments here in the QC I could have gone to (and I did six months earlier), but I am so thankful that I followed my chiro’s recommendation and had Doctor Foad fix my shoulder – he repaired a torn rotator cuff and a ripped bicep tendon. Today, I am back to playing tennis and using my shoulder/arm without any more pain. Thank you, Doctor Foad and staff. You guys are the BEST!!
