    Dr. R took time to show us and explain to us in great detail the MRI results, why surgery wasn't needed, under what circumstances it would become necessary, etc. He advised us to allow the body time to heal itself before doing something that my husband would "have to live with for the next x# years". It was refreshing to meet a surgeon who did not jump at the chance to operate, and who clearly puts the long-term best interest of the patient first. His bedside manner was also excellent.

    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.
