      He was very rude to me and completely ignored what I was saying to him. By the end of the visit, he was convinced that I had no idea where my hip joint was, but he does because he's a surgeon, a hip surgeon! He also told me that there was nothing wrong with my hip joint. I went to another doctor a few days later and apparently, I know exactly where my hip joint is and there is truly an issue going on with it.
      Very cold, non sympathetic, rude, sarcastic. I would recommend this provider if someone is seeking all of the above care

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
