      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.

      Dr. Gahr Sr.'s Care Philosophy

      My first priority is always the patient. I do everything myself--take your blood pressure, etc. You will not be shunted off to an assistant. I am a board certified internist--many internists/pcps are not. I can be easily reached on weekends. Unlike most doctors who have patients fill out health checklist forms in advance I personally take your medical history. After we are done in the examining room we talk in my consultation room. Most docs just scurry from exam room to the next patient.
