He spent time listening to my symptoms and did a thorough exam. He ordered a test that the Ortho spine docs didn't. He based his treatment on tests and my symptoms. Very kind and courteous Doctor.. He inspires confidence. My L5-S1 fusion has been an easy recovery. He really cares and wants to help. There is no need to fear if you are in his hands! Thank you Dr. T.

I was in a motorcycle accident in July, 2016. Dr. Tumialan performed emergency neurosurgery to save my life. I am just now having surgery next week to attach my bone flap that had to be removed - almost 11 months without my left bone flap.. He has been very compassionate toward me and my family. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

He's the best, most decent, honest, and straightforward human being you will ever encounter.

I am a retired VP of Sales for a major spinal surgery device company, and have access to surgical competency information from Phoenix area nurses, PAs, and spinal device sales reps which is unavailable to the general public. After much research, I chose Dr. Tumialan to perform my L4-L5 microdiscetomy last week. Dr. Tumialan is perhaps the most caring, most competent spine surgeon that I have ever met. His skills in micro-spine surgery are unprecedented. Best spine surgeon in the valley!

Beware! Charged $310 to review a MRI and then sent my wife to another Doctor for 2 epidural injections. $6,000 later and after more suffering, no improvement. This guy is only interested in his outlandish FEE. Billing indicated he could have charged $600 for the consultation. So, make sure your insurance will pay your "consultation" fee before you commit!

Very competent and explains procedures well. Has a great bedside manner I felt confident that what he was going to do was the correct procedure for me and I was not disappointed with the results. I suffered with sciatica for years and this procedure cured that.
