In the words of our patients…

Surgery with the best doctor in the world.

Hand to Shoulder Associates are very professional. The doctors, the office staff, and the doctor assistants are very caring, helpful people. I had the pleasure of having surgery with the best doctor in the world. I had a Bilateral Carpal tunnel surgery that turned out great. I was released a few months ago for both my hands, and I had a work injury on one of my wrists months after surgery, and I was just released. Thank you very much, Dr. Biafora, for all you did; I really appreciate you.
