      Have been a patient for several years. Would not consider another one. Amazing staff who make you feel you are the only patient. I see him in Knox office but have seen him in main office too. Need a Doctor who cares then pick this one.

      I was on hold for 30 minutes and no one got back with me.

      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.
