Reviewed on Oct 17, 2019

Dr. Haidet came across as being extremely knowledgeable regarding what is wrong with my right shoulder. He took some X-rays of it to show me what's going on. He gave me 3 (I think) treatment options to choose from. I especially appreciated his standpoint of not recommending any particular option. He said he didn't want to come across as being pushy, or just wanting to make more money via recommending a complete shoulder rebuild (he was afraid that he might sound like a pushy salesman). Dr. Haidet was extremely friendly, cheerful, energetic, etc. My sister was with me during our interview with Dr. Haidet. Both my sister & I feel that surgery will be the best option. Moreover, Dr. Haidet gave me a cortisone injection to palliate the pain (which is working very well so far; and should do for the next 3 months). All things considered, I think I will opt for surgery. I feel very comfortable about placing myself under the care of Dr. Haidet's surgical care.

Reviewed on Oct 16, 2019

The good doctor even came out to the waiting area to answer some of my additional questions; he is an extremely courteous man.

Excellent every time I have seen Dr. Haidet. Very pleased with my care.
