      I went to Dr. P with concerns about my tonsils, post nasal drip, and vocal health. He has worked with singers before. I got a laryngoscope to check that my vocal folds are healthy. He goes in through the nose. While it was uncomfortable, Dr. P has excellent bedside manner and was as gentle as possible. He also listened to all my concerns. At the end we decided on a course of treatment that I am comfortable with and that I believe will be beneficial. It was a great experience.
      This was the worst experience of my life. My appointment time was changed three times in the course of two days before surgery. Even the day of my surgery he was cold and could care less about the anxiety I was dealing with. I hate surgeries and I hate hospitals! His staff had the same bed side demeanor and had a "could care less" attitude. Would never recommend him!

      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.
