      I really don't think that people in charge of the nurse Trish actually read or care about real patients posts here. This is sad, as a post op patient in excruciating pain I have basically no recourse or help in trying to speak with my surgeon. It has been 4 days now with no response from the all powerful Trish. My only advice is to REFUSE to deal with this horrible person. Hopefully others will have much better care than I have received.

      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.
