      She was the best! Very attentive and great bedside manner. Also I ended up needing a C-section and she did a great job! 1 year later and I can't even find the C-Section scar! I am very sad that I moved away and won't be able to have her for my next child. There is no one else I would trust more.

      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.
