“I have been experiencing pain in my right shoulder for several years. I saw an orthopedic doctor over a year ago and received a cortisone shot and physical therapy. It helped somewhat, but I continued to experience pain, which was increasing with time. I decided to have my shoulder checked again as the pain was getting worse. Dr. O'Holleran had me x-rayed, and an MRI performed. I was given a cortisone shot and prescribed therapy yet. Dr. O'Holleran was very thorough with his explanation of what he found and made several recommendations to improve and strengthen the muscles in my shoulder to avoid surgery at this point. I was pleased with the experience of the check-in process, the visit with the Dr., and the check out process.”

“This is my second injury that Dr. O’Holleran has seen too. The first injury, I had to get two separate opinions, and I am just so thankful I was able to have him be the one to fix my shoulder. ( another Doctor told me I was too old!! The second would have just kept giving me shots) He did surgery, and it is now 100%! I just injured my knee yesterday, and he saw me right away and has a plan of action to fix that too. I wouldn’t see anyone else.”

“My first visit was with Dr. Eric Fu; he started my experience with the office. I came in with a shoulder injury. I had multiple follow up appointments with him until he referred me to Dr. James O ‘Hollaran who specializes in shoulder injuries. He explained more depth on how my shoulder would need shoulder surgery (not an ASAP procedure but the type of tear would need to be surgically repaired, or I would always have pain with precise movements. So I decided to opt for the surgery to eliminate the pain and discomfort of my range of motion with daily moves. He and Dr. Fu have been very helpful friendly and very informative. Will recommend Sports Medicine North office for future orthopedic patients due to my personal experience. Thank you.”
