      Hey Gary,

      How hard is it to schedule an appointment with Dr. Andrews? Does he accept new patients or only refferals? He is in-network on my insurance so I would have full coverage. Please let me know how your experience was like with Dr. Andrews. I'm struggling with bi-lateral slap tears. I'm currently 9 weeks post op on my second right shoulder surgery and have yet to address the left shoulder yet. Looking for a great doctor to salvage the left shoulder if my right one doesnt work out this time.

      We are from NJ It's very hard for us to get to Birmingham . His rehab facility is impressive but I personally feel that if your not a STAR (they do get special treatment)It's a meat market he does too many surgerys I don't even know if he did the Surgery? He has many Doctors following him around.We are not happy with the results of my Son's surgery but it's 8 months and maybe I am over reacting. He's a nice guy and his staff is very accomodating but I would not recomend him. It's all Hype!!I am hurting for my boy because he's a really good player and this was a big year for him now he has to redshirt.

      It is great to have one of the premire OS's in the country, but I think you are right about the big name issue and being over the top busy, not the best. I would have a problem with a resident performing my operation. Unless you live in a small town, there are plenty of OS's who specialize in shoulder surgeries that do not require a plane ride or drive across the country.

      I also believe a surgery is only as good as the rehab that follows. OK so I am a bit biased. Honestly these surgeries are not that complicated, but I want to see a higher percentage that can return without complications.
