“I saw Dr. David Auerbach for a 2nd opinion regarding the need for surgery on my left rotator cuff. First let me mention that Dr. Auerbach has been named by Los Angeles magazine several years in a row as a Super Doctor. That is impressive in itself but my firsthand experience with him I found to be even more compelling. i was super impressed with Dr. Auerbach's timely efficient communication with his support staff, his professionalism including his bedside manner, his analysis of the problem with my shoulder and his prompt communication with both me and the first surgical MD. Dr. Auerbach carefully compared the movement of my good shoulder to my injured shoulder and explained in detail to me what he saw as the problem with my injured shoulder. He then followed up with the first MD and together they came up with a plan that put me at ease. Thank you Dr. Auerbach for your commitment and dedication to providing the utmost in quality care.”
