      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.

      Dr. Harper's Care Philosophy

      "The patient does not care how much you know "until" they know how much you care." Such "care" begins with genuine listening to the patient so as to "hear" what they need. The skills to diagnose and treat are not rare, but the art of treating the patient the way you want "your" family treated....that is my goal.
