      in Avilla, Indiana |
      Excellent physician, was willing to take me on after being turned away by many other doctors. Was treated extremely well by him and his staff. The only thing I did not like was he was an hour and a half away from me. I will go back to him if I am in need of his services.

      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.
