    Patient Reviews
    Dr. Bishop was extremely thorough and knowledgeable. She clearly explained my diagnosis and the different treatment options in a way I could understand.

    – Stanley N.

    Everyone, including Dr. Bishop, was professional and friendly from check-in to check-out.

    – Susan F.

    Dr. Bishop was a pleasure to see, as was everyone I have ever had contact with. She was pleasant and listened.

    – Karleen C.

    I had a fall in November, causing damage to my right shoulder. I saw Dr. Bishop, who evaluated my MRI. She found that most of the damage was done in an earlier fall, ruling out Arthroscopic surgery. She felt that physical therapy should be attempted before joint replacement.

    – Irv N.

    We were able to get an appointment with no problems. Dr. Meghan was well versed with sports injuries, and her concern to do follow-up was very much appreciated.
