Dr. Tyson cared for my dad as if he was her father. She was compassionate, patient, professional, knowledgeable, and resolved the issue with ease. Dad said that it was the most painless procedure he has ever had. Her follow up was so genuine. #1 GI Doctor in the world!!

Brilliant, caring, informed, great "bedside" manner. Got me functioning again, lowered my pulse rate, put me on the right meds, lessening my chances of suffering a stroke. I cannot say enough about Dr. Tyson. She's not only a Gastroenterologist, but is a surgeon as well. Knows her stuff!
