    Both Dr. Boorman and his right hand lady, Peg, are wonderful. Although Dr. Boorman was unable to help me with my shoulder completely which had undergone total replacement years before, he was able to alleviate the majority of the pain. He is knowledgeable, extremely helpful and definitely not arrogant. He really cares about his patients. His assistant, Peg, is fantastic. She too, is patient and understanding. I would strongly recommend him to others. Having Dr. Boorman as your surgeon is worth the wait.

    Superb surgeon. I did some real thorough internet-based research for the best shoulder surgeon in Canada but it’s hard to trust the internet. My right shoulder had been operated on 4 times before seeing Dr. Boorman. Twice in the GTA area in the mid nineties, then in Helsinki in ’02, and the fourth one was in the Lesser Antilles in ’08. The original diagnosis was a simple separated shoulder. After two Weaver-Dunn procedures, a sternoclavicular operation, and a glenohumeral SLAP tear scope, nothing was working. I couldn’t do cartwheels or handstands, which are my favorites. A colleague recommended I get on the waiting list to see Dr. Boorman. The wait was worth it. Dr. Boorman said the diagnosis was so cinchy. All I needed was a hemiarthroplasty. My shoulder feels like someone injected WD40 right into it. Amazing results thanks to Dr. Boorman.

    Extremely good doctor. I have been a patient for 7 years, 2 shoulder replacements and a revision surgery. Easy going doctor, come prepared he is an in demand doctor so don’t waste time. His assistant Peg is a dream compared to his previous assistant. Very good doctor.
