You go to a small Dr's office to get old-world bedside manner. You go to a large one, closely affiliated w/ a hospital, to get access to state-of-the-art testing facilities, diverse specialists, etc. I made the right choice. I lost my doctor asking about my cat, but gained back tenfold w/ the amount of knowledge Dr. Ihnat has: keeps abreast of cutting edge medicine, knows quickly which specialist to refer me to if needed, & he's punctual and efficient. He doesn't babysit; he solves problems.

Dr Ihnat takes his time during the exam. He does a complete exam every time and makes sure I am understanding my care.
