    I went to Dr. Bhaskar after receiving a Hep C diagnosis in 2006. He ordered lots of blood work but neglected to order the test that determines the genotype I have, which is a predictor of the outcome of treatment. However, he wanted to go ahead and start me on a treatment that is not a cure for most. When I voiced my concerns he went into a speech about how he was one of the top 3 Dr's in his field, traveling all over the US lecturing - perhaps his busy schedule caused him to forget the labs.

    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.
