    During one of my first visits on a Saturday morning he started to doze off asleep. When expressing concerns about paying for medications he assured me that it was generic and cheap at Costco even without insurance. I checked the prices at several stores... Not cheap. Before starting a new medicine, asked before leaving if there were any risks. He said no. The pharmacy medicine readout listed several risks, and a couple risks were experienced. Not shy about prescribing, even without diagnosis.

    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.
