      Dr. Nell seems to be a highly qualified physician but is near impossible to get hold of. His medical assistant does not return calls or avoids speaking with you. I have had multiple appointments cancelled the day before my appointment by his staff. Most recently I was scheduled to have a joint injection done prior to 6/29/2016 and now I'm told it can not be done before July! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hurt.

      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.
