      I had the best patient experience ever from the reception to the physical therapist to the doctor himself.
      in Fremont, Ca |
      I have been seeing Dr Besh for about a year now, and he has done 4 surgeries on me, with one more to go. Dr Besh is the most wonderful Doctor that I have ever been treated by, and Ive had some good ones! He is very professional, straight to the point and does a great job explaining everything. His staff is just as good, and they all seem to have great respect for him and love their jobs. I can't say enough about Dr Besh, but he has made a very hard time in my life very easy to get through! Thank

      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.
