      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. Eaker's Care Philosophy

      The patient and I are partners.  I deeply respect their own sense of their body and use that as a starting point.  I feel my responsibility is to provide guidance, options, and choices when it comes to making health decisions.  The final choice for any action resides in the patient herself.
