Cincinnati, oh |
Awful! Condescending and not willing to treat my specialty which I was told he would. Asked why I was there and said He didn't know. Told me to see my primary DR for med management when thats why I was there, my meds no longer work. Complete waste of time. Said I should see a nutritionist for my facial pain Trigeminal neuralgia! ! Needs to retire. No bedside manner AT ALL!!

After radiation failed and other surgeons refused to operate on the tumor in my husband's spine (location inside the 1st cervical segment was too difficult), my husband was given 3 - 5 months to live (depended on the doctor). Dr. Tew agreed to see him; was completely upfront about possible negative outcomes; insisted that we talk to our pastor and each other before deciding; and agreed to do the surgery (early 2013). It was highly successful. He's alive & functioning (2016).
