      I scheduled an appointment at the earliest date which was one month out. They canceled that appointment because the dr wasn't there. It took two more weeks to get in to see him. I had an appointment at 10am. I got called back to a room at 10:10. Dr Sandquist didn't see me until 12:10. I waited for two hours for him to tell me in five minutes that my insurance would most likely not cover his recommended treatment. He could have told me that at 10:10am or over the phone.

      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.
