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.

Don't waist your time and money, I had two hernias when I visited him and he wasn't able to find either one not alone do the surgery, extremely disappointing and frustrating
in Tampa, FL |
Most excellent doctor. Had a hernia which he repaired via robotics at Memorial Hospital. Was referred thru my Family Doctor to Dr Tyler. Excellent results. Felt very comfortable with his doctor demeanor. Have recommended him to others for consult or surgery. Thanks, Dr Tyler.
in Tampa, FL |
My initial visit with Dr. Tyler was a consultation for a Medi-port. I mentioned my fear of the procedure and Dr. Tyler listened to my concerns and addressed them in a manner that was easy to understand. I left with much less apprehension. My next interaction with Dr. Tyler was at the hospital for the procedure, he once again went over the entire process and what to expect. I found him competent and personable, two great traits for a surgeon. A great experience both in office and hospital.
