      Dr Orr has an excellent bedside manner. I met he and his staff during a recent surgical consult, and subsequent surgery. His staff is friendly, returns phone calls quickly, and goes out of their way to provide care and concern.

      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.

      Dr. Orr's Care Philosophy

      I have been dedicated to the care of patients with cancer and related problems for over twenty years. By specializing in a narrow area, I have accumulated vast experience in dealing with complex problems and performing major cancer operations. Cancer care has changed radically during this time, and I remain committed to offering my patients the benefits of the most current literature and research. As a surgical oncologist and an endocrine surgeon, I am a selected member of advanced subspecialty societies led by international leaders in these fields. By actively participating in these societies, I can utilize the most recent techniques before they are widely disseminated.
