    Absolutely no bedside manner. Borderline rude. Seemed rushed and impatient when asking about my medical problem. Very rough in his exam style. Actually hurt me and said later during the exam that he was sorry. Rushed me out of the exam room, so he could get to his next patient. Thankfully, he is not my regular doctor. She was unavailable. He said he was calling in a much needed prescription for pain. I had to call the office a day later, to remind him. A very unpleasant experience.

    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.
