I don't know where he is right now, but if I did - I would switch back to him. He really cares about his patients, goes out of his way to find out if there's anything else you need to get comfortable or even better if possible. He diagnosed me and started treatment when no one else would. He even went out of his way to make sure I received treatment for my MS while I was in a coma from a heart attack for 3 weeks and couldn't speak for myself. I would love to know where he is.

I have never seen a better doctor in my life, I have seen him for many years, so did my husband, father, and nearly 40 friends that I have recommended and we couldn't have been more thankful for a doctor like Twyman.

I am an MS patient who has seen Dr. Twyman for over twelve years now. I am completely satisfied with the care I receive. He has always explained anything I need to know about how this disease affects my life and is generally concerned about my well being. I really dread the day he retires.... I'll never find another Neuro/friend who will compare.

I have been a patient of Dr. Twyman's since 2006. I couldn't ask for a better neurologist. He is very involved with his patients and I never feel rushed. He makes me feel like i am the only patient he is seeing that day. He is also one of the most knowledgeable neurologists I have met, and being involved in physician support at my hospital, I have met MANY! I recommend him to any MS patient!!!

Dr. Twyman always takes the time to explain procedures, test results, options, and medications. He listens to the patient's questions and concerns and responds with answers that are patient and respectful, even if that is difficult when family members are involved. Dr. Twyman is always totally professional but never lacks sensitivity, understanding, and compassion. I can not speak for others, hut his sense of humor and wilingingness to get off topic, for a moment, makes a hard situation easie.
