      My experience at the Dr office wasterrible I drove 25 miles for my appointment at 245 per the appointment card, and was told in a very rude manner, that I was late. The male receptionis said it was at 2. because I didn't have the card in my possession he insisted I was late fortunately I still have the card. How very inconsiderate. I am going to find a different doctor.

      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.
