      To be honest, she saved my life. I was having some issues that I thought were related to hemorrhoids. Dr. Fugelso thought something else was going on, and suggested I get a colonoscopy. I had one less than a year prior that was fin, but she insisted and even went as far as call the Dr who had performed the procedure. He also stated that I had just had one, but Dr Fugelso insisted. Good thing, I had stage 2 cancer. Had surgery 3 weeks later and am still here 3 years later and cancer free.

      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.
