      His bedside manner was HORRIBLE. He was basically pawing my daughters face and telling her, hush, be quiet I'm not hurting you! HORRIBLE. He just wanted to get the exam over with and did not want to take the time to slow down and be gentle with my child. He was annoyed when I asked specific questions to clarify his findings. Front desk staff was rude as well but... That is the least of the problem. This man really has no business working with children.

      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.
