Dr. Gibbons and Staff have taken care of four rotary cuff injuries and has always given me the best care and information to fully recovery. His assistant [...] always make time to ask about sports while making decisions based on information I provide and his assessment. I hope I never have a injury again but if I do Dr. Gibbons office is where I will go!

Dr Gibbons was a referral from my primary physician. I had read the reviews on him but he exceeded my expectations, us knowledgeable and professional yet is extremely pleasant to talk to. He's not in a rush to push surgery and suggested other alternatives that were non invasive to remedy the problem. I highly recommend him to others.

I was familiar with Dr Gibbons because he had done surgery on both shoulders for my wife with excellent out comes. That is the basis for my choice to see Dr Gibbons for examination of my shoulder. Dr Gibbons ordered an X ray of my left shoulder after our first exam and followed up with a detailed discussion of the results of the X rays. He walked me through the X-rays and showed me where the problems are. His conclusion was that my left shoulder is bone on bone and suggested that an appropriate treatment could be a complete shoulder replacement. I requested that we first try medication and physical therapy and medication before we make a decision on the replacement option. He agreed and suggested celebrex which he gave me a prescription for. However, the Part D provider refused to provide that drug and suggested we try one of three alternatives, which we have done. Dr Gibbons then prescribed Diclofenac topical gel. He checked with my cardiologist to ensure it would not cause any heart problems. I am now using the Diclofenac with good results. I am also scheduled to start physical therapy with the Kadlec Healthplex. My objective is to see if the combination of the drug and therapy is enough to keep me going and if not I hope to get the muscles in the shoulder as healthy as I can in preparation for the replacement, if necessary.

He suggested I wait awhile to see if my shoulder would improve on its own, but when I said I wanted an MRI asap, he didn't disagree or try to convince me differently.
