James B.

I came to Dr. Lervick with pain in my left shoulder. Having had pain there before due to a C5/C6 ruptured disc in 2004, we were not sure about the source of pain. He ordered MRI’s for both my neck and shoulder to determine the source. A full thickness rotator cuff tear was discovered but also stenosis in two levels of the cervical spine. After consulting with the spine surgeon who had performed the fusion on the ruptured level, the decision was to first repair the shoulder, which turned out to be the true source of pain. Everything from preparatory pre-surgery therapy to the surgery itself and all post-surgical care including adequate pain control during those first three weeks are just a few positives to mention. His assistants, Andy and Ann are the best too! Dr. Lervick’s bedside manner, all options explained, genuine interest and care as to how I was doing left enough impression upon me to make sure I get at least Dr. Lervick’s contact number into the hands of anyone who tells me they are experiencing shoulder pain or immobility. I am a shuttle van driver for a car dealership so I meet many people over the course of a year. I’ve become a walking advertisement not only for Dr. Lervick, but also Dr. Jeffrey Dick at TCO, the spine surgeon referred to above who has performed three nerve decompressions and two fusions on my spine. Kudos to both men and their entire staffs!
