    A patient s recommendation is the highest compliment. Thank you for your recommendations and for trusting your health and the health of your family or friends to our practice.

    Terrible experience with this doctor. Had a rash, pretty bad one. This doctor didn't even spend 5 minutes with me, and gave me a wrong diagnosis. I had to go back to my primary care physician who eventually made a correct diagnosis and prescribed medicine for me.

    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.
