This guy acted surprised that I came to him for something he lists on his website that he treats. It took about 5 minutes in the room with him. I took time out of my day to seek him out and he took no time to even discuss, just said sorry I don’t do that and gave me a recommendation for someone else. THEN I was sent to a debt collector for the office copay I was never billed for! That’s the main reason he’s getting this review besides the fact he’s brusque and impatient. I do NOT endorse him.

They helped me throughout the process ensuring I understood each step needed to take for success. Dr Tyler Is an effective communicator who explained my procedures, why they were needed, how they would help me and how I could impact a positive outcome. He listened to my questions and answered them. Im ecstatic with the results. I strongly recommend him if you need a surgeon

Besides having a very caring demeanor with my wife, his patient, he is also very cordial with me and takes time to answer any questions either of us may have. Never acts in a hurry which is very much appreciated, as both of us are getting up in years and often don't assimilate information as quickly as we used to. He appears sincere in making sure we understand what his conclusions and plans are. My wife has the highest level of confidence in him, as do I. Dr. Tylers staff compliments him well.

Dr. Tyler did an excellent job fixing my hernias. My dermatologist, Dr. Suringa, highly recommended him and boy was he right. Dr. Tyler used the Da Vinci robot to perform the procedure and my incisions were barely noticeable. The office staff is top notch.

When I consulted with my primary care physician and another one of my doctors about a medical concern that I had they both independently suggested that I see Dr. Tyler. I was able to meet with Dr. Tyler, and discuss my issues. He took the time to listen, ask questions and did a thorough examination. He answered my questions and offered a plan of action to address my issues. I followed his advise and this lead to a successful outcome. From there he monitored my case with care and concern.

My recent visit to see Dr. Tyler was a checkup from hernia surgery he performed on me about 2 years ago. Everything is fine, Dr. Tyler is a very skilled surgeon. I would only recommend Dr. Tyler and his staff if you need an outstanding Dr. with a staff to make you feel comfortable throughout your entire experience. Thank you for all you have done for me.

Dr. Tyler instills confidence by skillfully responding as an experienced physician to any patient concerns. In my case, I was thoroughly briefed on how to prepare for surgery and what to expect before and after the procedure. His explanations and instructions were simply stated and clearly described. There were no surprises - a great experience. Dr. Tyler has my complete confidence as a surgeon and I highly recommend him. His practice consistently exemplifies quality healthcare.

It's kind of scary the things coming out of a surgeons mouth. He actually said a lymph node was a muscle even after I showed him a sonogram and report stating it's a lymph node. Sorry but I'm gonna have to side with the radiologist who has just as much if not more schooling. Then proceeded to tell me calcified lymph nodes in your neck are never cancerous. I am finding a pattern of stupidity witg doctor's associated with memorial hospital. No thanks, i wouldn't let him touch me with a knife.

Dr. Tyler came very highly recommended by Dr. Alan Weintraub for my gall bladder removal. "the best of the best" I was told. His bedside manner does leave a tiny bit to be desired, and he has a dry sense of humor, but he was up front, blunt, to the point. I like that. When I am sick, I don't want to be coddled, I want the truth and a solution. He offered both. All of my appointments were quick and efficient, but not rushed. My questions were answered thoroughly and competently. Great surgeon.
