I re-injured my left shoulder, damaging ligaments and tendons that had been fixed 32 years ago and doing some other damage to the bicep muscle and other things, just to make it a real mess. It left me with a range of motion like a Rock’em-Sock’em Robot toy.
Dr. Lopez was highly recommended by friends, so I went to visit and he has been 100% thorough every step of the way. Surgery took several hours due to the mess I’d made of things, but the outcome has been amazing. I didn’t have to take any pain medication after the first night. The day after surgery, I was at my desk answering e-mails and I didn’t miss any days of work.
I have been going to physical therapy in Dr. Lopez’s office working with Steve Friedeman, a doctor of PT who has a workout room there, and my progress has been excellent. I have greater range of motion now than I had from the first surgery when I was 17 and I am now 50 years old.
Dr. Lopez & his CNP Janette did an excellent job in the operating room correcting my two problems. Both individuals have the patient’s interest in mind and are willing to spend the time with you to answer all questions.
I highly recommend this team to anyone in need of an orthopaedic specialist.
After years of ever constant, progressing pain in my right hip, a fall during a Christmas snowstorm forced me to realize that I could not go on like this. I was losing the ability to walk. Upon my doctor’s recommendation and my own research, I selected Dr. David Lopez. It was one of the best choices I have ever made in my life. My surgery was April 5th, 2011, and I have not looked back. Dr. lopez was great, and right from the start I was never misinformed, never forced into anything. He answered all my concerns, all the facts were laid out for me to choose from. He told me my options and it gave me some relief that this doctor was very professional in his work and approach. He had a sense of calm and assurance that you knew that this man knew what to do and take care of you. His assistant, Nurse Practioner-Janette Parsons is one the nicest people you will ever meet and very happy to be at your side during your procedure. Her knowledge, skill, and personality are second to none and you will have all of that in your time of need. She is the perfect compliment to Dr. Lopez. She is one of those people that lights up a room when she enters plus skill and knowledge to back it up. The office staff, from Gail on down are outstanding with your appointments, paperwork, insurance matters and any problem that might arise. I can only praise to the highest degree that this doctor, nurse and staff gave me my life back, the ability to walk normal and for that, I am forever grateful.
My surgery was June 2012. After years of heavy mechanical work I was in constant arthritic pain. Surgery was my only option. Dr Lopez was very knowledgeable, informative and above all confident. I needed that and with this confidence recieved a very successful outcome. I can’t say enough about the support I recieved from him and his NP Janette who is just outstanding, and with you every bit of the way. His office staff is friendly and very accomodating. My wife even recieved a call from the OR nurse to update her during my surgery, thanks to the caring of Dr lopez. I highly recomend Dr Lopez and Janette for the upmost in care when you need it most.
