I started treating with Dr. Tuma last November for reconstruction after a 2MX and he has made a stressful situation much more manageable. He speaks TO you and not AT you and explains all the steps and expectations along the way.

I have nothing but the highest regard for Dr. Tuma and his Physicians Assistant Dana Keddie. They have treated me with compassion, care and concern throughout my entire process. I cannot sing their praises highly enough. The entire staff treats one with such an air of respect, kindness and thoughtfulness. How wonderful.
I recommend Dr. Tuma without reservation. He has performed two reconstructive surgeries on me in the last two years. The surgery on my face last year as a result of MOHs procedure has healed without even a scar. My current problem is active and I do not know the final outcome but I am hopeful that I will have the optimal results. Dr. Tuma and his staff are truly exceptional in their professional expertise, while maintaining a very personal touch.

When you're faced with an undesired disease, it's almost impossible to think of all the next steps & choices involved. When my world was shaken up, Dr. Tuma & his staff made me feel as if I was their #1 priority. I was not alone in my journey & Dr.Tuma was solid at providing unconditional support, honest medical advice and positive energy. He is in my opinion, a medical artisan; meticulous, creative & perfectionist! His gifted hands was the Only surgeon I desired. I am Beautiful again!

Dr. Tuma is at the top of my recommendations to anyone. I previously had breast cancer and went to Dr. Tuma to create symmetry. After the reconstruction, it was found out that I had to have more surgery. I have not been the easiest pt. because of past treatment. I wouldn't have wanted to go through this period of time with any other surgeon. Dr. Tuma has always been positive, supportive and hands on. This has been a very stressful time and Dr. Tuma and his entire staff have been fantastic.
