What People Say About Dr. Matthew Tilem, MD

Our experience with Dr. Tilem has been nothing short of amazing. My husband was admitted with Tia's and because of Dr Tilems persistants he was found to have a major blockage in his brain a bypass was performed. Dr. Tilem takes time to listen and pushed hard to treat the issue.

Wow- I don't even understand how this man is allowed to practice medicine- nevermind something as complex as neurology. He appears nervous, has no bedside manners, and no compassion. Maybe he's been fortunate enough to not have had a family member with a serious illness so he doesn't quite comprehend certain things. Not only will my family and I avoid this man, but we will be sure to pass on our horrible experience (too much to write about here) with everyone we know.
