His surgical skills were second to none, with the exception of the incisional hernia I knoiw have that must be eventually be re-worked on. Pain after surgery was left uncontrolled over 2 nurse shifts. Nurses agreed, Dr did not. Room was not properly disinfected. Cleaning lady came in daily and pushed the same old cloth around spreading germs. I endded up returning to the ER about 4 days later with severe infection/Rigors which appeared personnel on hand did not know how to swifty handle.

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.
