What People Say About Dr. Michael Tyner, MD

Dr. Tyner is very knowledgeable and cares for his patients' and their well-being! He cared for me following my bariatric gastric sleeve surgery. When I was having choking episodes following my surgery (performed by another surgeon), he "immediately ordered UGI and other tests", to come up with my problem. He diagnosed a hiatal hernia (with complications), which was supposedly repaired during my bariatric surgery. Dr. Tyner not only repaired the hernia, but also did additional repairs to areas he found to be causing my choking episodes. You just don't find many physicians as genuine, caring, and competent as Dr. Tyner!! He very likely saved my life. His wife is his nurse, and she also is very kind, supportive, and knowledgeable. I hate that Dr. Tyner is no longer practicing in Burlington, NC. I'd like to find out where he is practicing, so I can make an appointment with him. If anyone knows where I can contact him, please let us Burlington patients know!!

Dr. Tyner is well sought after and rightfully so, as he will do what it takes to get you the absolute best results, as well as what is best for your medical condition and health. You might have to "wait" on your scheduled appointments, however, you too will get all the time you need, every visit! Hands down he cares very much about his patients and he is a hands on doctor who reviews all his patients films and studies himself!! If I lived in CA, I would fly to NC to see him!

Arrived 30 minutes early, as requested. After being seen by the nurse we sat for another hour in the room. When we asked the front desk how much longer she told us that the appts last 2-3 hours. I can understand if we were doing things or talking to someone for that long but not just sitting all that time in the room waiting for him. Took time off of work and cannot wait hours for every appt. Will seek out another physician who is more respectful of our time.

I've had three encounters with Dr Tyner and that's after waiting over 1.5 to 2 hours to see him. I commute over two hours from work to make my appointments and me having to wait almost two hours to see him with an appointment is unsatisfactory. I've planned on going to another physician with more considerations for his patients time and effort to GET to their appointments.

He listens and gets to know you! He's serious about your health, but has a little humor and makes the visit well worth your time!

Wow. This place is awful. Expect to wait 2+ hours for every appointment. Admin Staff is rude and won't make eye contact when you stand at the window. No one apologizes or offers to reschedule. Calls are never returned when requested. After my husband's surgery, Dr. Tyner took calls and texted the entire time he was supposed to be debriefing me in the waiting room. I have never been so disrespected.
