      Dr. Ahern has been my primary care physician for several years now. He takes the necessary time to explain symptoms and treatment options. He doesn't rush through the exam, and then leave you wondering what he found. He answers questions readily and thoroughly, and doesn't seem to get impatient. And I have never found reason to question his judgment--something I am sometimes quick to do, having worked in medical malpractice. Dr. Ahern always has a cheerful demeanor.

      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.
