This was an my initial visit with him and he took time to get background information as it applied to my injury. I left feeling I have a plan of attack. I would certainly seek his help again.

Dr. Mushal is very knowledgeable about the condition with my shoulder and the treatment suggested helps.

I appreciated this doctor but he was rushed. I felt rushed and forgot to ask some questions I had. He seemed more concerned teaching his students he had with him.

Dr. Musahl ordered an MRI and said he would see me right after it was done if I came back to the Sports Medicine facility for that test. As it happened, the MRI lab had an opening right after I saw Dr. Musahl, so I was able to do the test immediately and Dr. Musahl made time to see me *again* (same day!) to complete the diagnosis and develop a plan of action. One visit, everything done but the actual surgery. It doesn't get any better and more efficient than that! I'm very impressed with everyone's efficiency.
