    Jim W.

    Fantastic professional care from Dr. Lopez and staff at his Little Silver office. I set up an appointment for severe shoulder pain. XRays were taken onsite and it was determined that I had bone spurs and a possible pinched nerve in my right shoulder. Dr. Lopez was thorough in establishing his prognosis.

    I was given a shot to alleviate the pain, prescriptions for muscle relaxers and physical therapy and a follow up appointment in several weeks.

    Highly recommended!

    Richard M.

    The experience was well managed. The team seems organized and efficient. I had been receiving treatment for an existing condition and the transition was smooth. Covid protocol was thorough.
