Asking for a friend, who injured his shoulder this past spring while rock climbing. He went to see two doctors, did physical therapy, and it's still giving him a lot of trouble. Neither doctor really made any suggestions or diagnoses, just basically told him to stretch and wait for it to heal, which hasn't helped. He is desperate to try to find a better doctor who can actually help him here.
So, can you please recommend any awesome doctors in NYC who treat shoulder injuries, or are even just generally awesome sports doctors?
Extra bonus points for a doc who is really good with climbing injuries specifically, even more extra bonus points if they're in network for United Healthcare.
