Its been six weeks since I had the Ream and Run surgery and you have to put in the work to get a good result doing your rehab. I am making good progress and Dr. Carofino not only has great skill but is very compassionate. His PT staff led by Brice is excellent and very helpful. I strongly recommend Dr. Carofino and his staff for shoulder surgery.

I can say the Dr. Carofino and his staff where very accommodating from the first visit to the last. I would highly recommend Dr. Carofino for rotator cuff surgery as I'm now in my 12th week of second operation Dr. Carofino preformed and I feel great. The physical therapy is also fantastic. Really can't say enough about how they treated me. Highly recommended.

My new patient visit went smoothly. Everyone I encountered in the office was friendly. The provider informed me of my options and offered a solution that provided me with immediate relief. Overall very happy to have visited as living with the pain I had was effecting the quality of my life. Dr. Carofino is knowledgeable & friendly.

On 13 Nov 20, I fell backwards hard. I was in so much pain I could hardly lift my arm as I ripped my rotor cuff to shreds. On 2 Feb 21 Dr Carofino performed surgery and installed a new total shoulder replacement. I am now bionic. My recovery has been short of remarkable. After surgery, I visited the Physical Therapy center with the guidance of Ruth who was kind considerate and caring. Just this week, I was able to clear my back yard due to home construction of over 200 16' x 16" stone pavers. Prior to that, I had been tearing down walls. This would not have been possible and my future looked bleak had I not been referred to what I call my Michelangelo of Modern Physicians. I praise this man daily for the fine work he did. Thank you Dr Carofino!

A year to the day after my first ream and run, Dr. Carofino tackled my other shoulder. One of the worst he had seen, the joint was so worn and so impaired that I could barely touch the side of my head; forward elevation barely 90 degrees. At the nine month mark, I can easily reach around my head and neck. Forward elevation under my own power is nearly 160 degrees; with assistance nearly 180 degrees. Remarkable. To anyone needing a shoulder replacement I would recommended that they research and consider the ream and run procedure as it carries NO lifetime limitations. Granted, recovery from a ream and run is longer, more arduous and painful, but, in my view, worth the extra work. For a motivated person with an active, physical lifestyle, I know of no better alternative. Dr. Carofino can change your life!

I needed to call and let someone know I would be about 5 mins late. The number that is provided to make changes does not get through to any of the receptionists. Instead it tells you the office is closed until 8, which was the time of my appointment. Your business is clearly open before 8. The number “you guys” ( cause idk who set it up) provide helps no one for early appointments. Luckily on this day i was not the only one with this problem. A lady uses that number, got misled as I did, I was told she needed to reschedule. Thankfully she complained enough to get seen. That’s terrible.

Caring. Concerned. Very competent. Highly recommended from a former patient who had both shoulders replaced and who now has shoulder movement at 100%plus and can throw a ball, rake Fall leaves and carry her own suitcase from the luggage carousel at the airport. I have had no pain for several years and look forward to the same for the next twenty years. Thank you, Dr. C !

Arthritis caused much pain in both shoulders over the years. Dr Carofino performed replacement on my left shoulder a year ago and I will have my right one next week. To be honest I was very worried before the left one because of horror stories from other people. These people did not have Dr Carofino and Brice Snyder taking care of them! My surgery and recovery went so much better than I ever could have expected. Thank you both!
