I don't like doctors but I LOVE this one! Short, sweet, and to the point! His curriculum vitae is so long that you'd think he was 100 years old....reallllllly smart and experienced. Thorough and STUDIOS. Lots of COMMON SENSE, too. Went to his office crying one day and was embarrassed but he was totally compassionate. If you don't love him, you won't like anyone. I recommend him to all of my [accident] clients and all of my friends.

God has given him magic hands. Take advantage. He is blessed and I am blessed to be his patient. He did two surgeries, did not open my back. My arm is fully working. Back pain is gone.

Dr. Tender is my hero. I Can’t say enough about him and his team. After 4 months of acute pain, I’m back to living a normal life. Dr Tender gave me hope, where other Doctors failed.

Dr. Gabriel Tender is a very intelligent, kind and caring Doctor. I was hurting badly in my left lower back and he sent me for a MRI and thank God he did, because they found a huge mass in my left kidney that was cancer. I thank the almighty God for Blessing Dr. Tender with his knowledge and allowing Dr. Tender to care for me. God saved my life by sending me to Dr. Tender. Thanks Darlene W.

I do not recommend Dr. Tender AT ALL! We spent 2 hours in the waiting room to see him for 15 minutes. He blew off my questions. He told me the weakness in my extremities was symptomatic of spinal cord compression and agitation. I have both scoliosis and excessive lordosis and Chiari Malformation. My spine care physician is the one who referred me and it was a huge waste of time. He did not care. He did not want to be there. HIs body language were proof of that!

I absolutely recommend Dr. Tender, he performed a minimal invasive spine surgery procedure on me and relieved my constant & severe right leg paint. My pain was so severe I could not drive my car, I couldn't walk more than 20 ft. without stopping, but worst of all I could not get comfortable enough to fall asleep. My pain was caused by a bulging disc pressing against the sciatic nerve. I am now pain free..!! Thank you Dr. Gabriel Tender.

I had a 10 am appt.,so did 7 other people in the waiting room .When they called me back ,they called all 8 at once. After waiting almost 3 hours in the exam room,I called my insurance company and told them that if this was the type of service I could expect from this man,no way was he going cut into my body.NO WAY! None of the people I met in this clinic were friendly in any kind of way. I had the feeling in was a nuisance to them, and not a person in need of health care.
