      Excellent surgeon. Caring, attentive and skilled. We would recommend him to anyone. I have no office visit history with him yet as I have just scheduled a surgical follow-up appointment but have had numerous visits with him at Centennial Medical Center after he performed an emergency surgery. Outstanding surgeon!

      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.
