Patient Comments (3)
Ladson, SC |
Waited over an hour and a half in exam room before he walked in. Despite having x-rays, and MRI, and a four page questionnaire about my issues he had no idea why I was there. Was not good at trying to explain my specific diagnosis. I will not return.

Up until my appointment yesterday, July 6, 2016, I was very satisfied. He performed carpal tunnel surgery on both hands and I am pleased with the results. However, when I had the stitches removed on the left hand, the person removing them didn't get the end knot and said that it would grow out. That is not the case, I went to Dr. Tyler 4 weeks ago and he looked at it and said the same thing but to come back if it was bothersome I went to see him yesterday and after waiting 1 1/2 hours I left

Dr. Tyler did a C-5C-6 fusion when my disc was pressed against my spinal cord. He was very thorough in explaining what was happening. And what options I had. He made me feel comfortable I in the 1 visit I had before my surgery a few days later. I had no issues with the surgery and didn't need any medication 2 yrs later I can hardly even see the scar. I would certainly recommend him to anyone!
