Dr. Gibbs is an honest and communicative doctor. I'm pretty picky and ask a lot of questions and he did not make me feel uncomfortable in doing so nor did he take a dismissive tone in addressing my concerns like many doctors. He is truly exceptional, personable, and while our surgery date is pending, I believe my son is in extraordinarily capable hands. Wonderful bedside manner as well and accessibility.

    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.
