      Unfortunately not good. He is not personable and seems honestly that does not care. My daughter in his view had spasms and doctor in other practices dont agree. We r still seaeching for the diagnoses but i am glad i found a neurology practice that truly cares for my daughter. Overall cornell isnt like that.

      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.
