Do you know your doctor’s history?

When selecting your doctor, its suggested you have a consultation, ask your friends and talk to his/her patients and after doing so, if you ‘clicked’, then proceed.  But do you know your doctor’s track record regarding frequency of complications and infections?  Complications and infections are known risks of surgery but if a prospective doctor has a rate that is double the average, you may be better off avoiding him/her.  Hospitals keep track of statistics like this and those that work in hospitals know.
