    Dr. Tinger is a brilliant doctor and the best in his field. He is very patient and answered all my questions in great detail. He set up my radiation care and his team of professionals administered a six week intense plan to save my life. I am most grateful to him and was saddened when he explained that he was moving upstate. I am thankful for his care and wish him well in his new practice. I highly recommend Dr. Tinger and would definitely drive upstate if the need arises.
