Oft times when one might opt to write a review, the obligatory checklist comes into play. Writing one for a Surgeon, does not change that dynamic. In Dr. Szerlip's case, the checklist might go as follows: 1-Was he highly recommended? Check. 2-Was he accessible to address one's concerns? Check 3-When he spoke with you did he look into your eyes and actually listen? Check 4-Did he explain all that was entailed with the procedure to be performed? Check 5-Was he crystal clear and explicit in his prognosis and follow up aftercare instructions? Check That's all well and good and I was extremely pleased. No, make that beyond pleased with the entire process from consult to discharge. But here's the thing; the most important thing, at least to this patient: To many of us it's the little things that end up counting the most. Little things that tell us, this is something special, this is for the personal journal. That this (the little things) is not all that common. What were those "little things" that separate the extremely talented surgeon (which he is) from the robotic one (which he most certainly isn't)? It's twofold: 1-Aside from being delighted with how I fared post-op, he seemed to be most excited with the fact that he was able to avoid cutting into my tattoo. I never once mentioned the tat to him and any concern I might have had with it, yet it was important to him that he did everything he could to preserve the integrity of it. Not that it would have mattered as I am still looking for the minimal size cuts he made to perform the procedure..So, what does that tell you? 2-How comforting is it when the Doctor takes the time out of his (or her) busy schedule to personally "look in on you" with a phone call to see that all is well? The answer is simple: Most of us would not know or experience such a comfort, given that the phone calls usually are placed by the staff and/or the surgicenter..So what does that tell you? So, if we combine the "usual" with the "unusual" what do we have? A caring, uber talented professional who genuinely cares about what he does and with whom he does it on. One of a kind Doctor? I think so, or else I wouldn't have taken the time to write this glowing review..Thank you Dr. Szerlip for taking care of my problem and for caring far beyond the "call of duty."

Dr. Szerlip was wonderful. He answered all questions and demonstrated exercises needed for recovery. He worked with Micah until he was comfortable with how to handle his shoulder break and what to expect in recovery.

I was extremely happy with Dr. Graham’s work. My arm and shoulder are completely healed. In fact, my tennis serve is stronger now than before the procedure. I have recommended Dr. Graham to all my friends at the Tennis Club. I really appreciated Dr. Graham’s enthusiastic attitude toward performing my non-invasive, scope procedure. Dr. Graham told me how much he enjoyed doing rotator cuff procedures and working on the shoulder anatomy.

My children said – Mom, we’re tired of seeing you limp around. I couldn’t go to the mall. I was having trouble playing golf and limping quite a bit. I did a lot of research to find Dr. Graham online. I am from North Carolina and liked the fact that he was a graduate from Duke Medical School. I wanted someone young and fresh on new technologies. I believe in new ideas and the younger generation. The experience with Dr. Graham has been great. My physical therapist says that I am doing great.

My shoulder is wonderful. I feel so much better after just six weeks. My function is improving day to day with range of motion. The entire process has been very comfortable. Pain has been minimal. Repair and recuperation is quite comfortable.

Dr. Graham was the third doctor I had been to, and the only one to diagnose my treatment correctly. He was always on time and very accommodating. He is young and very well trained, up to date on new techniques. Dr. Graham is very talented, a brilliant surgeon and a great mind. But his greatest talent is in his heart. He cares what happens to you. Five months after the procedure, I won my age group at the Capital of Texas Triathlon in Austin. I gave my medal to Dr. Graham from that race to thank him for all he had done. The medal is hanging in his office now. Ten months after the procedure, I placed 6th in my age group in the Ironman Triathlon World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.

It’s great when you are able to trust your doctor with him wanting the best life for you. He is engaging, warm, detailed, dedicated to his specialty and passionate about his patients. Their follow up, consistent expectations and post op instructions made such a difference in knowing what would happen next. Seton Medical Center was a great place with great nurses. Surgery isn’t always a fun thing to do but working with Dr. Graham and his team made it a smooth transition. I feel so very blessed to have been in his care and he has such a wonderful family and group!

Dr. Graham is one of the best physicians that their level of expertise matches their bedside manner. His attentiveness to listening to me and my concerns was such a wonderful experience since previous physician have been short with their time and lack the personal touch. There are people that you just know that want the best for you and want you to get back to living life. His office staff were always warm and welcoming which made me feel even more welcomed. I loved Dr. Graham taking care of my shoulder and should recommend him to everyone that needs attention on their shoulders. He’s by far the best!
