Helping Rebeca Yepez with Her Shoulder Pain

Rebeca sought relief from intense shoulder pain from a UW Health Orthopedics and Rehabilitation physician assistant. She shares her thoughts on the experience.


I was seen by Erik J. Bonifas, PA-C (physician assistant certified), last week (during the third week of September. I came in after many hours of intense pain in my left shoulder from a fall.


I was extremely impressed by how quickly and nicely I was received. Erik greeted me, reassured me he and the staff would take care of me and efficiently proceded to do X-rays and diagnosis.


As soon as I was put in a splint, my pain improved 98 percent. I was so relieved that my daughter told me that the color in my face had returned. I am and will always be in debt to the staff of the Orthopedics Department, and especially to Erik.


Thank you for all your help! So impressed!
