      I was treated like a person not the problem. Kind and caring doctor who made me feel confident and safe with the neccassary surgery. Thank you.
      in Camby, IN |
      Extremely thorough and great follow-up. Very trustworthy, explaining all the risks and benefits of every treatment and surgery. Very careful to ensure that he had all needed radiology results in order to proceed for treatment. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs a highly trained, experienced, and reliable ENT doctor.

      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.
