I really appreciate Dr. Shulman’s kindness and patience. I have been dealing with chronic pain in my hip since 2018 and he not only figured it out but he explained the problem, how it used to be “fixed”, why they don’t do it anymore, and what the best course of action is. He did a wonderful job explaining it all to me and even used great analogies when needed.
