We feel fortunate to have received reflections from our patients about how Dr. Joseph B. Chalal has helped them. Here are some of our favorites:
“I was referred to Dr. Chalal by a friend for an injury to my right shoulder. Dr. Chalal was personable and extremely knowledgeable. He was not aggressive to recommend surgery and offered alternative options instead. I highly recommend Dr. Chalal for all your orthopedic needs. The rest of my experience at this office was great, as well. The front office girls were all amazing, friendly, and helpful.” - Heather P.
“This great doctor repaired both my shoulders. I was back playing softball within a year. I would highly recommend him as the go-to physician when it comes to shoulder problems.” – Paul R.
“Excellent doctor. Dr Chalal is awesome. He did a great job on my surgery. Thank you so much!” – Christy M.
“On the recommendation of an experienced nurse, I went to Dr. Chalal's office about a year ago after a weightlifting incident caused me SIGNIFICANT shoulder pain. He diagnosed me with arthritis in my AC joint, a torn labrum, and fluid accumulation in my deltoids following an MRI. I was really impressed that despite being a surgeon (and a lauded one at that), he never pushed me to get surgery. In fact, he cautioned me against rushing into it. We opted to start out with the conservative approach: rehab exercises and oral cortizol, which eliminated 90% of my pain. – Jonathan C.
Dr. Chalal talked to me very frankly about my prognosis, which unfortunately was that certain types of movements (i.e. overhead presses) may be problematic for the rest of my life. However, he also assured me that my normal activities wouldn't be a majorly impacted. So far, everything he said has held to be true. – Chris R.
Dr. Chalal's reputation is well deserved.” – Stephan C.
