When it comes to taking care of my patients, I want to engage them in such a way that they feel comfortable with and encouraged by our treatment plan. I know that to trust a surgeon to take care of you is something that requires a great amount of faith and trust and I hope that my patients will know that I am honored to be a part of their healing.

Dr.Best is awesome ! The staff in his clinic are just as great
Nov. 20, 2019
Very attentive to my needs, kind and considerate. His PA was also excellent. Every time I've been to the clinic whether to see Dr. Nelson-Freund, or Dr. Edelstein and the whole x-Ray staff, I've had excellent service and it made for a pleasurable experience, even though I was there for painful conditions. A+

Dr Best has done a wonderful job to take care of me and my shoulder. I could not have a better doctor for my needs. Thank you

x Ray technician failed to inform the desk that the x-rays were completed so we waited an additional 45 mins to see doctor

Dr Best is kind, professional and approachable...he listens and always takes seriously what you say to him and is open to my ideas and suggestions. He checks records, and he and his team work excellent together. I am extremely happy with the shoulder replacement surgery he did for me. He will be doing future surgery for me in November and January and I am thrilled that he can be my doctor. He has helped to make a difficult health issue much better and I am grateful and thankful for his expertise and compassion and can rest easier that I know he is my doctor for the next surgery...He is the "BEST" :)

Professional staff from the moment you check in until checkout very kind caring I liked that my appointments were made for me before I left an excellent team
Sept. 6, 2019
He is honestly very smart, caring, charming, funny and passionate about what he does. His student that he has with him, he just as well carries the same characteristics. Very knowledgeable of what they are doing and know how to make the patient feel comfortable and at ease. I was very scared, and they made me feel so comfortable and assured me that I would be fine. I was afterwards I was in a great deal of pain, but at that moment I was ok.

Dr Best is indeed the absolute best there is! From the first time I saw Dr. Best he made me feel like I was talking to a close friend and that's huge!!! He has "fixed" problems that multiple other doctors have left me suffering with. Dr. Best is my hero. I've referred family members as well as my customers from work to him. Couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Aug. 25, 2019
There is not a day that goes by,that I don't thank God for Doctor Best! My shoulder hasn't felt this good in Years! He in genuinely as excited about that as I am. He's an amazing man.

excessive wait time
Aug. 19, 2019
my shoulder replacement has given me the ability to lead a normal life, and enjoy my grandchildren; the surgery and recovery went well and there was very minimal pain involved. I would recommend dr. best to anyone. he is an excellent surgeon and a very personable doctor.
Aug. 17, 2019
I was impressed by his intelligence and friendliness and willing to provide me with additional help and advice regarding the use of my hand. Dr Cameron is a wonderful doctor. I hope he never loses that enthusiasm for his expertise and continues to grow in his field.

Waited an hour before I saw the doctor.

Dr Best is the Best**
July 15, 2019
Dr. Best has a great personality. He made me feel very comfortable and confident with his care. He is a very compassionate person.
July 3, 2019
Dr. Best explained things very clearly and thoroughly.
July 1, 2019
Dr. Best is one of the few doctors I have ever had that sat down and listened to my concerns. He was good at explaining what was wrong and options as how to address it. X-rays were taken within the department by very positive and what seemed like "happy" to help you and be there attitudes. After X-rays I was glad to once again meet with the dr to go over what was wrong and go over options. I think Froedert needs more doctors like Dr.Best. For being as busy as he is he takes time for me.

Dr. Best was very patient with me and the questions I had. He is compassionate and concerned with my overall health, even though he was treating my broken acromion. An example of his compassion - when he gave me the real news and bad news about my shoulder, he took hold of my hand and spoke to me how he really wanted a different outcome for me plus some other caring comments. He didn't have to take the time to do that, but he truly cares for his patients. And, for a 2nd time he is taking my file to another doctor to see if he, the other doctor, sees any way to obtain a positive outcome. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Best to anyone in need of an orthopedic surgeon who deals with the shoulder (and whatever other upper body problems he deals with).
June 26, 2019
I first saw Dr. Best almost 2 years ago when I was referred from the ER. I broke the bone in several places and dislocated my hand. today my hand is betterthan new. this is why I returned to Dr. Best when a new issue came up with my other hand.
June 25, 2019
During my time spent with him, he was very caring, compassionate and treated me with respect and dignity.
June 24, 2019
friendly, competent, good explanation.
June 20, 2019
*Dr. Best was very polite, thorough took time to answer all my questions and did not make me feel like he was rushing to get to his next patient.
June 18, 2019
Not the care, but the wait times. There is a board that lists how much wait time there is for the doctors. My first time there, I waited 1 hour and 45 minutes to get into an exam room. in a waiting room full of people coughing and blowing noses. My second time I was there to get a Cortisone injection and the board had "45 minute wait" so I canceled my appointment and left. I was taking time off work for the appointment and could not afford to wait that long. Great surgeon, super nice, great personality, but the wait time is off-putting. That is my only complaint. The wait time. I guess that is typical with most surgeons...office/clinic time is sparse.
June 14, 2019
Great balance of down-to-earth approachability, witty personality to _____ tension/stress & confidence & competency that was very reassuring.

Dr Best is fantastic!
Feb. 26, 2019
Dr Best is the BEST...he is kind, open, professional...a wonderful experience to have him for a doctor. The only issue is that we waited 3 hours to get to see him. I think this is a little more that necessary, even tho I do understand that issues happen to others. I would hope that scheduling could be adjusted so that the wait time is much less.
Feb. 25, 2019
I've never had a specialist as wonderful, kind, and skilled as Dr. Best. He is everything you want in a surgeon.
Feb. 21, 2019
