Dr. Echols, my knight and shining armor, came to my rescue on March 28, 2017. I had issues with my right shoulder for over a year. At the beginning of January 2017, I started noticing my right shoulder becoming extremely limited in movement. I could not raise my arm or sleep on my right shoulder. Any movement in this area caused excruciating pain. This was going on far too long and getting worse over time. I scheduled an appointment and saw my primary doctor on February 1, 2017. My doctor requested a MRI and referral to an orthopedic. I completed my MRI on February 20, 2017 and picked up my report on March 9, 2017. Florida Orthopaedic Institute scheduled my first appointment with Dr. Echols on March 28, 2017. Dr. Echols was honest and straight to the point after reviewing my MRI. We both knew that doing physical therapy again was not an option and could only make things worse. Dr. Echols and his staff jumped into action immediately to get me the first available date for surgery. I was scheduled March 29, 2017. Six months after recovery and physical therapy, I am happy to report I feel like a new human being without the aches and pain. Dr. Echols and his staff did an outstanding job of nursing me back to health and ensuring I had the mobility I needed to return to a normal life. September 21, 2017 was my official release date from Dr. Echols’ care. If I ever need surgery in your specialty, I will definitely return to your office. Thanks a million to my knight and shining armor and his wonderful staff. You guys are AWESOME and do AMAZING work!!!!!!
