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.
