      in Ocala, FL |
      I did not care for him at all or his staff. It took around 7 weeks to get in to see his pa. Then over another 7 months for the surgery. He sent me to his good friend Dr.Decker to see what he thought. He never told me why he did that. He would order stuff with other doctors never tell me he did it or why he did it.I asked his office manager why he sent me to Shane's and he stated I don't know.He ordered home health to come to my house to change the bandage. I did not have the surgery with him.

      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.
