      Having seen Dr. Anita Pillai-Allen, I would like to warn all intelligent women against seeing her. She comes to an immediate diagnosis (which turned out to be wrong), and will not entertain any questions that might challenge her. Instead, upon hearing the question, she re-iterated her CV, and at the second question, she announced, "You're not listening, I already told you what you had!" I asked for a differential diagnosis, and she refused to give me one.

      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.
