“The staff is just amazing, and the doctor is incredible. He gave me all the information needed. Dr. Gaffney may or may not have told me what I wanted to hear, but straight facts about the condition and what the options I have are. No monkey business no bs like well you can take this if you wish to, but it probably won't help. I had a plan on how to correct the situation. I am going to follow through with the care plan and look forward to being pain-free a bonus I even got a diagnosis so glad I came here so glad I met Dr. Gaffney.”

“A friend recommended Dr. Mortimer and spoke so highly of him when I got home, I called and made an appt. I got in that week. I liked him immediately. He was so sweet and so real, and when I found out his uncle was my parents' Veterinarian when I was younger, sold! He has replaced my hip and did a reversed total shoulder replacement in the last year, and both are doing fantastic! He gave me so much encouragement by just telling me I was so tuff and I am the biggest baby in the world! Ask my husband! His PA, Mike, is just as caring as Dr. Mortimer and Keith his Tech is sweet and always returned my calls asap with any questions I had! So cool to find a Dr. you can trust your life to because I need my other shoulder replaced!! Have recommended him to several people! Dr. Luke Mortimer Rocks!”
