Patient Comments (10)
Austin, TX |
Dr. Tumu was very interested in gathering more information before performing any surgery. He called Dr. Morris Groves for an appointment and we got in the next week. We were grateful to see the oncologist first and getting further testing.

I had an emergency condition that required a neurosurgeon. Dr.Tumu helped me and my family through a very challenging time. His surgical skill saved my life. Not only is he compassionate, he is skilled and competent. I have a family member who is a doctor who during my crisis got to know Dr. Tumu. He describes Dr Tumu as the finest physician he's ever met. I agree.

Dr. Tumu is kind and compassionate surgeon. He walked me through my recent MRI, explained the problems and gave me several treatment options. He acknowledged the stress of needing to consult a neurosurgeon and put me at ease regarding my diagnosis and the path forward. The office staff was friendly and helpful, even offering to move my appointment up a few days when a time became available. I will return for follow up and would recommend Dr. Tumu for your neurosurgery needs.

He is kind and really listens to concerns and let's face it if you are having to see a neurosurgeon there are scary concerns. I never felt rushed or like I was just a number. I highly recommend him
I'm very impressed with Dr Tumu. He listens and explains everything in detail.

We saw Dr. Tumu regarding a serious health issue. It was obvious from the start that he is very knowledgeable and explained in detail about the xrays and addressed the problem. We feel that we are in the best of care and he came highly recommended by our oncologist. We highly recommend Dr. Tumu for your health concerns.

Called several times and didn't get anywhere. Tried to get my mom seen. They wouldn't set an appointment because "he won't see patients if he hasn't reviewed past tests." I gave them the numbers on where to request her records from. I never heard back.
