Review for Dr. Kalajian

He is what you expect a doctor to be. He listens attentively, describes his diagnosis and spends as much time as required.

Review for Dr. Meares

Dr. Tierney is an excellent surgeon. But more than that, he does not, at his convenience, just simply fit you into his existing schedule. In my case, he was well aware of my individual needs and made sure to somehow fit me into his busy schedule in a timely manner. It really saved the day for me!

Dr. Michael Elliott Jun 13 2024

Review for Dr. Tierney

He was awsome. He took his time and explained everything to me. He made sure I understood everything and any questions I had he answered with the reasons why. He not only told me my choices but explained each one to me including the positive & negative.I would definitely recommend him.
