I didn’t want to have shoulder replacement surgery.  The pain was so bad that it cut me off from living a normal life. Simple things like driving, turning to my side while sleeping and gardening were so painful that I just didn’t do them. I stopped travelling.  Dr. Miller was wonderful. He was sincere, empathetic and kind. He took the time to explain everything to me in terms I could understand.  Finally, I went ahead and had my right shoulder replaced on March 1, 2018 and my left in November. Now I regret waiting for so long.  For the first time in nearly 2 years I can say that I feel great.  While it’s a two hour drive from Litchfield Country to see Dr. Miller, it’s worth every mile to have the quality of care you get at ONS. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. (Comments from patient D.D.)
