Dr. Adkison did my shoulder surgery over a year ago. I could not have asked for a better doctor. I would recommend him to anyone!

superb clinical acumen... excellent clinical & surgical skill!! He has done surgery on me, my wife, & one of my sons... It's a shame he only does shoulders now. He could pick any joint and be "THE MAN"... he has chosen the most complex joint in the body & set a new standard!

Dr. Adkinson has repaired 2 shoulders and one knee for me, all three have had great results. He and his staff are very personable and professional and I have recommended him to several people. He and his staff are the best!

Dr. Adkison is the best. He did my hubby's reverse shoulder replacement and did a great job. His assistant Tammy was very helpful answering questions and calling me.
