    Dismissive, doesn't care about patients. Always in a hurry to get me out of the office. Unable to diagnose injuries.

    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.
