in Baton Rouge, Louisiana
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!
