      He performed a life saving surgery on my husband - Dr. Shemin had already worked a full day, and my husband was airlifted late in the evening in extremely critical condition. Dr. Shemin repaired his heart and I will be forever grateful to him for his expertise, kindness, and bedside manner.

      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.
