Recently, I had a total shoulder replacement performed by Dr. Prickett with Sonny Raths, PA assisting. In less than 24 hours, I was totally pain-free and able to begin my PT. You two ROCK! This was my third shoulder surgery, but my first replacement. It was also the easiest. Thank you Dr. Prickett and Sonny.

Thanks to Dr. Prickett for NOT making me cry when he gave me a shoulder injection. I have shoulder tendonitis and hopefully this will take care of the problem. He is very good and smooth with the injection and it didn’t hurt ‘him’ a bit…just wanted to say thank you for your expertise 🙂
