      He replaced my gastric pacemaker when it died. The surgery went fine but as far as after care, it was horrible! He cut open my stomach but expected just toradal to be enough pain meds afterward and no script for my zofran. Was told that he doesn't do that. Ended up in er hrs after surgery for excruciating pain and was made to feel like I was a drug seeker. Also his staff ordered me medicine that I'm allergic to,that causes seizures, because they never looked at chart or arm band. Horrible care

      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.
