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. Long's Care Philosophy

Why Choose a Primary Care Physician? Experts estimate that over 100,000 lives could be saved each year in the United States if patients focused more on the importance of prevention. Having an ongoing relationship with a primary care physician (PCP) who you see on a regular basis, especially when you?re feeling well, is one of the best ways to ensure long-term good health.
