I would NEVER RECOMMEND Dr. Tidwell. He was very rude and treated me with no respect. He did not have my records from a previous medical provider. The medical records had been requested 3 weeks prior to my appointment but no one bothered to be sure the records were there prior to my appointment. I have numerous health issues and he treated me as if my medical issues were my fault. He is not caring or compassionate. Run fast to another pulmonogist as fast as you can!!
Sent me to Hospitsl for test to see if I had asthma I was told that the results would be sent to him within one day I had an appointment for a month and a half later they told me at that time they still did not have the results two months later they still did not have the results now it's been six months I still don't know if I have asthma all they do is send me some Symbicort
