Patient Experiences

My Life is Back on Track


Thank you for pulling my life back on track. I have suffered from shoulder instability for eight years, with no sports, and I even experienced discomfort with doing simple tasks such as homework.

My first surgery in Beijing did not lead to a good outcome. This failure made me less confident in doctors and surgery.

After I met with Dr. Cole, I felt that I had met the ONE to save my shoulder and my life. After putting my trust in Dr. Cole and his staff, I am back on track after he was the one who finally fixed my problem. I have also learned that trust between the doctor, physical therapist and patient is so important.

No words can express my gratitude. Thank you, Dr. Cole, for listening to my verbose story and my many questions and for patiently explaining my problem to me. Thank you and your staff for all the consideration and efficiency during the surgical process. I really can feel that you care for me and my health.

I even considered applying to be your PhD or medical student! (Just kidding—I am happily working as a strategist in the headquarters of a fortune 500 company in Hong Kong and now, gladly use my right shoulder.)

Thank you so much, Dr. Cole.

    — Best, Xuan
