      He has spent considerable time and effort in uncovering a rare heart disease that has been disabling me for nearly 3 years now. I have been to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and they missed it, so did my doctors at the University of Iowa. He is pleasant, professional, and takes the time to answer my questions and explain things thoroughly. He's the polar opposite of the many cardiologists I've seen who were highly difficult and unpleasant to deal with. His supporting team is great as well!

      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.
