What Patients are Saying About Dr. Raymond Thal

  • Just a note to say thank you so much for fixing my shoulder! I am back to full strength with golf, and more importantly, I can sleep! Now, tennis, is another story...might be back one day for my knees!
    — M.W.
  • J and I would like to thank you again for the successful surgery on our son’s shoulder. He played the infield on a summer adult league and then 2nd base in the fall. This spring came along and he worked his way back out of center field! Thanks again.
    — J. and C. Family
  • It has been a year since I left your care. The knee that you repaired is doing great. I now run 5 miles 3 times a week, and 10+ miles once a week. I have no pain. I never believed I’d be able to run like this again. So, thank you for your care, your dedication to your work, and the healing your brought to me.
    — J.
  • Thank you again for all your help. I surely would not be doing what I honestly love to do if it wasn’t for you. You have been a prominent figure in my life and words can not begin to explain how grateful I am.
