Very kind & compassionate doctor. Took the time to explain the procedure, answer all my questions, and reassure my doubts. Thanks to his concerns over other issues, he saved me from life altering effects.

One year ago today, Dr. Tyner performed a sextuple coronary artery bypass on me. In the month leading up to my surgery there was much to read and many questions to ask. Dr. Tyner was not only my surgeon but he was my ultimate mental health care provider. His confidence in his abilities and in my prognosis gave me the confidence and proper attitude going into surgery. I was blessed to be in his and Dr. Bruce Armstrong and their fine team of Drs. and Nurses care.
