      Great Doctor with awesome diagnosis and 0% greed . For my problem had visited at least 5-6 ear specialist with unanimous opinion of operating it immediately either due to poor diagnosis or greed, but Dr Lustic was the saviour. Now over 8 months have passed and the problem seems to have improved on its own as predicted by the Doc. Now think about being dashed to OR immediately :)

      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.
