Dr Tenewitz is a very caring dr. He actually cares about his patients, which is very hard to find these days. He's very knowledgable about my disease and has helped me tremendously. I trust him with my life.

Had my gall-bladder removed and he nicked my duct, went back to see him because I worse after than before. His answer was Percocet, have had to have multiple surgeries in Pensacola to fix his mess. Word of advice: drive to Sacred Heart in Destin.

I wouldn't take my dog to this quack, he's great if you want your problem covered up with pain pills. It's my understanding he got one of his nurses addicted. He's been sued multiple times in south Florida. STAY AWAY!!!
