      We were informed by Dr Soto and his team that my aunt has ischemic colitis (dead bowel) and needed surgery emergently while a patient in Griffin Hospital ICU. It was decided by family to transfer her to another area hospital for this higher level of care. It was determined within 2 hours after admit to second hospital that this was misdiagnosed. She had a liver abscess requiring drain placement. Her outcome would of most likely been grave had we trusted his clinical decision and had surgery.

      From my initial visit to Dr. Soto's office, I found him to be patient and informative, spending as much time as I needed to answer my questions. On the day of my surgery, he stopped by before to greet me and after surgery talked to my wife about how everything went, then saw me twice before I left the hospital. I found him to be kind and personable and an excellent surgeon and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a surgeon.

      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.
