My name is XXXXXXX XXXXXXX I am aged 64. I have two bad shoulders. I think one is beyond repair as I have snapped the main ligament back in year 2000. I have minimal use of my right arm. The left shoulder has a deep tear. I have had e-rays and ultrasounds done on both shoulders this week. I was recommended by a friend to see Dr XXXXXXX Larkins. Is it hard to get an appointment to see him. I know he is very busy.
