My surgery had complications but when I awoke the first face I saw was his. He postponed his vacation to make sure I was stable and that meant a lot to me. He was never more than a phone call away while I was in the hospital.

He really knows his business. He performed my lap chole and incisional hernia repair last Thursday. One week post-op and I feel amazingly well. I plan to schedule my second surgery consult with him next month. Funny Guy too very personable.

Dr. Tiesenga and his practice are horrible. Months after having my surgery, I cannot hold down food and am experiencing a series of complications. When I brought these concerns up to him and his staff, I've gotten the cold shoulder and have been brushed off. You'll only hear of the successful procedures, but they're making it extremely difficult to recover and move forward following this failed operation. Now, I've had to move on to different physicians, who are his colleagues, and do not help.

Dr. Fred is a caring and knowledgeable physician and his staff is great also. I moved out of the area and was going to another physician who recommended I go to a specialist. I told this Physician I would go see Dr. Fred, and this physician was familiar with him, and said it was a good choice. Dr Fred has corrected my problem in just a few visits Dr. Fred has a lot of patients and can take a little time to get in to see him, but worth the wait!
