      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.

      Dr. Mirza's Care Philosophy

      My patient care philosophy is reflected by three main approaches.

      1) Finding the time to listen and doing my best to put myself in the shoes of the patient in front of me. Not infrequently, there is a lot of frustration and family stress prompted by chronic illnesses that needs to be addressed in order to help with the actual disease.

      2) Looking at each complex case with a critical analytic approach and finding the time and patience to attempt to put together all the pieces of the puzzle. This approach is particularly helpful when taking care of patients who have already been evaluated by several providers or those who have several medical conditions acting up at the same time.

      3) Providing a comprehensive approach. I believe that patients truly benefit from the active participation of all the providers involved in their care. Making sure that every provider understands and is aware of the plans and decisions being made increases the chances of a successful treatment
