This is my second experience with Dr. Song and, like the first one, amazing results. He and his staff, especially Ashley Reckdenwald, PA, was great, to say the least! When I came to Dr. Song about my left shoulder (he already did my right one), I already went to a “well-known” doctor closer to me in Neptune. He did some x-rays and basically diagnosed me with having bursitis and to put an ointment on daily and “live with it”! Because of my age, there was nothing to be done, he said! I tried that but the pain was keeping me up at night, so I decided to get a second opinion from Dr. Song. He tested me and said that I was in great shape and had a lot of strength there but it seemed odd to him that I have the problem I had, so he advised me to get an MRI to be on the safe side. Upon his findings, he concluded that I had a severe tear in my rotator cuff and that I needed surgery ASAP! This was actually a bit of a shock to both of us because the pain was not the same as my right shoulder. I had the surgery and went to PT and now I am completely free of pain in BOTH of my shoulders and can even swim in the local pool without any problems whatsoever!!! Thanks, Dr. Song, for doing a great job!
I have been a patient of Dr. Song’s for over 3 years. I first started seeing him for shoulder pain in both of my shoulders due to osteoarthritis. He told me he could give me corticosteroid injections to help me with the pain but, in time, I would need to have shoulder replacement surgery. I received the cortisone injections for several years but, in time, they stopped helping with the pain I was experiencing. I then had to decide whether to move forward with shoulder replacement surgery. After talking with Dr. Song several times about the shoulder replacement procedure, he explained to me that the surgery was not as complicated as I had envisioned. I also spoke to Ashley, Dr. Song’s PA, and she had nothing but positive things to say about the procedure which helped with my decision to go forward with the surgery. The office staff was very helpful in helping me set up my preadmission testing and the surgery date. When my surgery was over, I was immediately pain-free. After 10 weeks of physical therapy, I was able to move my arm and my shoulder as I should normally and I was pain-free. It has been just over a year since my first shoulder replacement surgery. I am doing great. I had my other shoulder replaced in January with no regrets and no more pain thanks to Dr. Song.
After having increased shoulder pain and limited use and mobility of my right arm, I had the shoulder replacement surgery performed by Dr. Song. My appointments prior to and after surgery were easily made and the office and nursing staff were always pleasant and helpful. During my appointment, Dr. Song thoroughly explained the surgery he would perform and I felt very comfortable and reassured. After surgery, my pain and discomfort were minimal. I had my arm in a sling for 5 weeks and did my daily exercises as instructed. I then started PT 6 weeks after my surgery 3 times a week for 8 weeks. I am now able to perform all my daily activities and have no pain or discomfort. I am so pleased I had the surgery done and I highly recommend Dr. Song to anyone considering surgery of this kind.

My experience with my shoulder operation that Dr. Song performed was the best decision I made. He was my second opinion that turned quickly to be the first after meeting and talking to him. He explained in great detail about what he was going to repair and I felt so comfortable with him. The outcome of the surgery was better than I expected. My physical therapist was so impressed that he now recommends Dr. Song to all! I can lift my arm straight up and over with no pain. I cannot say enough about Dr. Song. I loved everything about him. The office staff was very helpful and pleasant. Dr. Song was always on time, never late. I will speak to any patient who is not sure what to do!
My experience with Dr. Song: He is the kindest, most caring doctor. He actually saved my life. I am 76 years old and, for the last year, was in so much pain in my shoulder, I just did not want to live anymore. In August 2015, I was in the hospital with a pinched nerve and, between my shoulder and back, I was ready to give up. I went to another surgeon for my shoulder and, unfortunately, he could not operate on me until March 2016 but he gave me Dr. Song’s name, so I called Dr. Song and he saw me one week later. After reading my MRI, he sat down and talked to me. He said my shoulder was bone-on-bone and, of course, I also have arthritis. The minute I saw him, I knew this was my doctor to help me. To see Dr. Song, I had so much trust in him I was anxious for him to operate on me so, October 14, I went to the hospital. I cannot describe what a wonderful surgeon and person he is. I am still in therapy but I can do everything that I did before. To me, he is like a god-send. I just adore him, trust him, and love him for the help he gave me. I thought I was too old for this operation, but he proved me wrong. I am telling all my friends who have shoulder problems to see Dr. Song. For me, he is the only doctor to go to. I “love” Dr. Song.
Three years ago, Dr. Hasan recommended that I have ESWT for recurring bouts of plantar fasciitis. After about 6 weeks, I was back to my normal activity level which includes working out with a trainer 3 times a week and playing tennis several times a week. Thanks to Dr. Hasan, and ESWT, I am pain-free.

Thank you! Dr. Fleming, Thank you! My cruise was fabulous due to you helping me with my knee. I walked the “big ship” from end to end without pain. I know I will always have problems with my knee but will accept all the good that I have because of YOU.

“I’m beyond thrilled with the outcome of my procedure by Dr. Song. Prior to my surgery, I couldn’t lift my arm above my chest – now I am back to golf and can easily lift my arm above my head. Dr. Song was upbeat and optimistic. My recovery went better than I expected – in 6 to 8 weeks I was sleeping comfortably and I’m better than I could’ve ever imagined. My only regret is that I didn’t do it a year earlier!”
What a gift you are to me, to our community, to us all. I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to fit me into your insane schedule to care for me and to send me on the path to healing. I know it is what you do but you are so selfless and incredibly kind as you do it. Thank you. Thank you for everything. It is an honor to know you, a pleasure to be in your company, a privilege to call you a friend.
