After I suffered a collar bone fracture and separated shoulder, I have to thank Dr. Geoffrey S. Connor, MD and staff for how they led me from the first diagnosis to the very last second. He always showed interest in me and I felt very comfortable and safe, since the most important thing for me was to regain my confidence with a complicated sport like MMA training. Being an MMA fighter, I feel like I can do everything now that I could do before my surgery - going farther and training harder. Thank you Dr. Connor and D1 Sports Medicine.
I wish I had done it sooner! I can tumble without difficulty or shoulder pain now, and all I have to show for it are some very small scars. Thanks to Dr. C and his team I got to stay on my team.
