Excellent doctor. He made a successful procedure done on me years ago and he just performed another, different, successful procedure on me. He is very knowledgeable, keeps you informed. My whole visit was as pleasant as can be.

Dr.Tiszenkel literally saved my life over a year and half ago. I had major stomach surgery to address a blockage from my stomach to the intestines. Excellent Surgeon
