Umbilical hernia – Feb 27, 2020

My visit was fantastic for 2 reasons. First, Dr. Tyler took the time to thoroughly explain the surgery he will be performing. He went in to great detail about what he will be doing and what my recovery will entail. Secondly, even with him spending so much time with me I was in and out of the office in 30 minutes. I was extremely happy and feel very confident that the surgery will be a success.

I was referred to Dr. Gilman for a possible hernia. It was easy to make an appointment and his staff was exceptionally courteous and professional. I was always seen without delay at my scheduled appointment time. Dr. Gilman was the consummate professional. I was glad to hear surgery was not necessary. Highly recommend.

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.

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.
