      I waited 6 weeks for an appt. with Dr. Schooley. He barely gave me 5 minutes of his time during my appt. He gave me no specific diagnosis, course of treatment, or other options. I found him to be very arrogant and apathetic. I called his office to express my dissatisfaction and was assured Dr. Schooley would be very upset and would call me back. It has now been 3 weeks with no call! Maybe it's just me but I want a doctor who genuinely cares about his patients and that was not Dr. Schooley.

      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.
