This doctor was fantastic. He was able to diagnose our daughter's suspected seizure as gastric reflux, after another hospital failed to do so. He was very attentive, kind, and experienced. He does not push unnecessary medications, and carefully evaluates a patient taking in all facets and symptoms. We drove 3 hours to get here and waited a month to see him but I would do it again in a heartbeat. Having the right doctor the first time is critical, and I haven't met a better one.

My daughter, who has a genetic illness, was admitted to the hospital when she developed a new neurological symptom. Despite the fact that she had just increased one of her Rxs that was well known (we found out later) to interact with another Rx she took to cause that symptom, Dr. Tennison insisted her problem was psychological. When we found a competent dr. and decreased the Rx, her symptoms disappeared the same day. Worse doctor.
