      I waited six hours to see him to get a retina tear diagnosed and repaired. He was irritated, rude and impatient. The only reason I didn't walk out was because I had an emergency and no other options. Emergencies have to be the only reason why he sees any patients at all. Also, he rebuffed my questions on the latest laser technologies, which was probably a good thing for me because I wouldn't want a 70 year old working on my eye with a laser.

      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.
