      HE is a great Doctor, if you have a issue that is out of the normal issues he will work at finding the answer. And will follow up to make sure that the treatment is working. Will take time to discuss with you what is going on. Will try different things before he will do surgery. Which I like, not a fan of Doctors that also want to do surgery right away. HE is very friendly, if you do have surgery he will take time to explain to your family what he did and does not make you feel rushed

      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.
