I saw the PA because of discomfort in my elbow and thought it might be arthritis. It is....and I cannot lift the weights I am used to lifting when I exercise. Disappointing, of course, but I suspected this. When I fractured that elbow almost 4 years ago, Diana treated me and she was terrific.

I was very pleased with my visit and the way I was treated as always at South Shore Orthopedics. Deanna Packard PA was very informative and has a great bedside family. She didn't rush. She explained everything in terms I understood. I would not hesitate to refer my friends and family to her.
