- "My health is better by going to OSMC and seeing Dr. Stevenson. Excellent service and personal attention!"
- "Dr. Stevenson was very thorough and answered my questions expertly. I left feeling complete confidence in his care."
- "For over 30 years I have worked in a fast-paced and physically demanding environment building RV’s.I initially experienced discomfort in my shoulder which quickly increased to pain severe enough that it disrupted my sleep and I had difficulty raising my arm. I was sent to Dr. Stevenson at OSMC. He clearly explained what was wrong and how it could be fixed through surgery on my rotator cuff. I am so grateful that Dr. Stevenson was my surgeon. He and his staff were phenomenal! Thanks to the great job he did repairing my rotator cuff, I am now 100% pain free and functioning normal. I honestly did not think that would ever be a possibility for me. I expected to always live with some pain and limitation. His staff and the physical therapists were great to work with. They treated me with respect, kindness, and professionalism. Today I feel like a new man. I am so thankful to have complete mobility and strength in my shoulder. I would recommend OSMC to my friends and family. The staff was welcoming and knowledgeable, and I am grateful to once again have quality of life without physical limitations. I can’t thank Dr. Stevenson enough for the great job he did." - Eliseo Roa
