    After very quick diagnosis by Dr. Hedderman referred to Dr. Cheney who replaced 2 discs and installed titanium plate. Outstanding result. No pain and nerve damage caused by pinching of nerves reversed significantly. Highly recommend both Docs whenever the opportunity presents itself.

    While training for a half-marathon, I started to experience knee pains. I was referred to Dr. Shatynski for a consult. He was friendly, professional, and thorough. His diagnosis and recommendations were instrumental in recovering from an IT band injury that was a result of over-training. He provided me with advice and a plan to heal and prevent the injury from reoccurring. I was very pleased with him and would not hesitate to refer or return to him for treatment in the future.

    Fell and dislocated my shoulder. He was so nice and caring.

    Dr. Robert's is a very caring physician. He took the time to explain to me what was happening. I, unfortunately, had complications following my knee replacement. It was just me, no fault of the surgeon. Dr. Robert's was up front and to the point with me. One time I asked him what he would do if it were him in my position. I took his recommendations. It is now later, and I have no pain or residual effects from the complications!
