      I called to make an appointment and the girl that answered the phone was ghetto and rude, she got an attitude because I was asking a question about being able to self refer to specialist myself. After I called my insurance company to have them call, we find out she didn't have the intelligence to say it was an internal policy for all. She even told me before I hung up on her the first call, I would not be seeing dr. G., I told her I guess I won't because the staff in RUDE. I got another pain dr.

      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.
