“Returned to Dr. Karzel for my other shoulder. His bedside/office manner is very patient, and he takes the time to answer all my questions. After surgery, he met with my wife and described she could understand what he encountered and how he fixed everything in operation. All of my providers at SCOI have been fantastic!!”

“I had found out that I had re-tore my rotator cuff and had also done damage to my labrum and biceps tendon. When I met Dr. Karzel, he was polite, available, answered my questions and had a pleasant demeanor about him. I went with him to fix my shoulder and am grateful to have been in such great hands. I feel great. I've been back to playing volleyball, surfing and mountain biking and am having zero issues. Thank you, doctor.”

“Dr. Karzel is exceptionally knowledgeable and communicates with his patients in a manner that’s easy to comprehend. I have had both knee and shoulder surgeries with Dr. Karzel and have had excellent outcomes. I always appreciate the fact that he doesn’t push for operation but carefully explains all the options including recovery times for each. I have recommended him to friends who have knee or shoulder problems.”

“The surgery site was the best team of medical staff I ever met. The anesthesiologist, the PA and the nursing staff at the surgical site was amazing. I was told the surgery went well. The follow up daily via email was great. Now I am waiting to start physical therapy soon. The doctor and team I would give a five star.”

“This was my second shoulder surgery with Dr. Karzel. Turns out both of my shoulders needed basically the same procedure. I am now six months from my last one and it feels great unless I over-use it or move in a way that stretches the muscle too much. Still have some recovery time remaining but would recommend Dr. Karzel to anyone facing shoulder surgery.”

“This is my second time that I have come to see Dr Karzel, he did such a good job diagnosing me in addition to him repairing my left shoulder that same year. Dr. Karzel is a very thorough and patient Doctor when he examines you. He also explains everything concerning your condition. The Physical Therapy Department is also very excellent in how & what they do to assist in any way they can to help in recovering from surgery and prior to surgery.”

“I have been a patient of Dr. Karzel for years. He had performed 3 shoulder surgeries for me. In my book he is the top shoulder surgeon in the country, if not the planet. The surgery goes exactly as he describes, there is no after surgery pain ( my most recent surgery was repair of torn rotator cuff), and I love being able to see the "movie" of the operation from within the shoulder with Dr. Karzel's commentary. No one does it more professionally and with great skill and patient care. Simply, he is the best.”
