First of all, Dr. T DOES have a problem listening sometimes and he can talk fast. Do you know WHY? Because he already knows what is wrong with you, or that you are drug seeking and there really isn't much wrong. Now, he CAN seem very unwarm. I know him and know the man is a GENIUS who saved my life. Don't expect pain meds from him. He can FIX you. I trusted him with my brain and cord. I trust him. I actually seen compassion on his face. He's human too so normal people have bad days.

My father had two surgeries with Dr. Tomycz; the first was very successful and dad was on his feet within hours of the surgery. He did not bounce back from the second surgery as quickly (dad was 83 at the time of his second surgery). Dr. Tomycz is a straight shooter ... he is soft spoken, but doesn't mince words. If you want to know the straight up facts, this is the guy for you. He is honest about the quality of life post surgery and will tell you if surgery won't help. Very trustworthy.

Failed back surgery. Knew it was a fail one week post op but kept getting brushed off. Had to have a revision with another doctor.

He was very rude and disrespectful. I've never in my life walked out of a doctors appointment in my life. I would never recommend an animal go to him.

Is there enough that can be said about someone who has given our lives back to us? He restored my very ill husband to full functioning through surgery. Dr. Tomycz is beyond skilled. He is gifted. He's brilliant, He has always taken the time to fully explain things to us and answered our questions and has always demonstrated concern and commitment to us. My family is so grateful to him.
I found Dr. Tomycz to be arrogant and insulting. More interested in what he had to say than listening to what I had to say. A fast talker. He seemed not to care and had no interest in working with my own Dr. to get me better. Make a choice. One or the other. He couldn't seem to get out of my room fast enough, trying to shake my hand and head for the door several times. He had his opinion, and wasn't interested in my or my referring Dr.'s point of view. I won't be going back.
