“I received the best care and service possible. Dr. Chambers and his staff are the best. He repaired a previous shoulder replacement done by a doctor in Charleston. Dr. Chambers reversed my shoulder joint so that my quality of life has dramatically improved. Works excellent way beyond what I thought would have been possible.”
