      Dr. Affleck makes me feel like I'm his only patient and is not in a rush to get to his next patient. He has a sense of humor and puts me at ease, while explaining exactly what he's doing.

      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.
