      I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. He did not treat my condition appropriately, and he was disorganized and completely incompetent.

      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.
