Patient Comments (1)
in New Orleans, LA |
I was referred to Dr. Tilton by my internist because of what seemed like a minor leg pain issue and family history of heart disease. My procedures aren't completed yet but I am VERY glad I was referred to him. He explains everything down to any detail I want or need. If he is going too deep into medical terminology he can break it down to terms we understand. He has answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. He also has a great bedside manner. That means a lot, too!
