      A truly fantastic Doctor, who really cares about his patients
      in Niles, MI |
      Saved My Life! First he found and then soon after removed malignant tumor. Connected me with my great oncologist, and really went above and beyond. Explained everything as we went along, made sure I understood, is caring, and thorough, he's my hero, and he's always treated us like family. We love this guy.

      Dr. S is the best. He not only cares for his patients he cares about his patients. After surgery I had some issues. (Not his fault, my own) I got dehydrated. I called him and he told me to go to the ER. After they rehydrated me he had them admit me and then he came to see me the next morning. He gave me his personal cell phone number and made me to promise to call him if I had any more issues before he would release me. Which I did. Such caring I have never seen. He is gets A++++++++.

      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.
