MEET DR. CHUINARD
Dr. Chuinard specializes in shoulder and elbow surgery, sports medicine, endoscopic carpal tunnel and more.
“I couldn’t ask for a better doctor than Dr. Boyce. The whole GLOC team was fast, professional, and gave me easy-to-understand explanations. My physical therapist said I could be a poster child for knee replacement surgery.”
“I went to Dr. Brian Kerr when I was having trouble with my right shoulder and he gave me several options to alleviate the pain. Following rotator cuff surgery he coordinated my physical therapy with GLOC Physical Therapist Lynne Lombard who was key to my recovery. Also helpful were the guidelines Dr. Kerr gave me which addressed what I could and could not do with my right arm before and after surgery. I strongly recommend Dr. Kerr and the entire team of specialists at GLOC to anyone experiencing shoulder difficulties.”
