Provider Reviews

Outstanding experience. I felt like I have seen a world-class doctor. He helped me find out about my pituitary tumor and now I am tumor-free. He is extremely knowledgeable and kind. The staff also is very supportive. They need work on their phone lines.

Review for Dr. Ergin

Dr Tirado takes his time with his patients. He doesn’t say a lot because he is making careful notes about what I am saying. His diagnosis is always spot on.
