“I had surgery on my shoulder on January 6, 2012, by another doctor which left me in continuing pain day in and day out. I went to Dr A. Aboka for a second opinion. He was extremely nice and listened to every word as I explained my situation. Dr. Aboka explained my given situation and ordered some tests. The test results from the CT scan was exactly what Dr. Aboka stated. I under went surgery and to my belief it doesn’t feel as if I been cut or had surgery at all. My pain has been in instant relief. Dr. A. Aboka is not only a great doctor to have but a great surgeon as well. I will recommend anyone with need of an arthroscopy or shoulder problem to come see Dr. A. Aboka at anytime, you won’t be disappointed.” – Brendolyn

“After suffering for over a year and being told that rehab would help my swollen throbbing and painful to walk on knee, Dr Aboka explained exactly why I was in so much pain.I agreed to the procedure. It went well, from start to finish. Finally I feel better. Thank You, Dr. Aboka. You Have Blessed Hands.” – Rick
“I had shoulder surgery by another orthopedic surgeon and it was never right!! I kept having constant pain. Dr. Aboka made the right diagnosis and fixed my shoulder with arthroscopy…it felt better the day after surgery than it had for 3 years. I am back to work without pain after just 6 weeks. He is really nice and takes the time to explain the problem ans showed me exactly what I needed done and how he fixed it. I DEFINITELY HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR ABOKA!” – Anonymous
“Dr Aboka really figured my shoulder problem out after I had been bounced around by several other orthopedic doctors for over a year. He has an easy bedside manner and took time to listen to me, before examining my shoulder more thoroughly than any one had ever done. He explained to me exactly what is going on with my shoulder (shoulder blade tracking problem). His customized therapy protocol helped me return to normal without the surgery that the other guys were recommending…Thanks Doc.” – Anonymous
