Dr. Tandon is absolutely amazing. He is incredibly knowledgeable and a supreme expert in his field. I would highly recommend Dr. Tandon for people suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia which was the condition I had been suffering. After he performed the Microvascular Decompression surgery, I no longer suffer from facial pain. I can eat, talk and be social with confidence. I will forever be indebted to Dr. Tandon.

He saved my life! Every neurologist in my hometown (literally went to EVERY one we had here) told me that it was incurable. In a matter of 1 month, he found the issue, got my surgery set up, and healed me! Went from almost 4 partial complex seizures a day to NONE! Always thankful, words could never express. The staff is wonderful as well, sweet Jessica is very fast with response, and so easy to talk to. Love to this hospital!

WOW! Just the thought of Neurosurgery is scary for most of us. My wife had a 2 1/2 year battle with horribly-excruciating and continual pain attached to her Trigeminal Neuralgia. We finally found Dr. Tandon and his staff to stop all my wife's nerve pain. Surgery was 100% effective from the moment my wife woke up in recovery. It's now 2 weeks later and no pain! Rightfully so, there is MUCH to do, gather and discuss prior to neurosurgery. Two of Dr. Tandon's Angels, Jessica and Adriana, made my and my wife's lives MUCH calmer, quieter and less apprehensive during the whole pre and post-surgery process. God Bless those two angels.

There are not enough words to express our gratitude for Dr. Tandon, Jessica (Nurse Practitioner), and the entire team. Everyone. Our world hit "pause" close to a year ago when our 18 year old daughter began having seizures, and after meeting with several doctors, we were referred to Dr. Tandon. Months and months of sleepless nights and lots of tears, we were desperate for help. Jessica was the first person we met with, and I can't say enough how full of hope we became. The balance of professionalism and demonstration of humanity was incredibly disarming. We walked into the office nervous and apprehensive, and left feeling extremely encouraged. The surgery lasted quite a few hours, and she was even awake for a good portion of it. Not one secondary issue! Other than a scar, that is almost completely hidden already from her hair growing back, you would never know she had surgery! There is not a surgeon or team I could possibly recommend more than I can Dr. Tandon and this team.

Dr. Tandon was very thorough, professional and informative about my rare brain tumor. As expected it required a highly skilled neurosurgeon to operate in such a confined and delicate area of the brain. There is absolutely no margin for error or substitute for steady hands, sharp eyes, intelligence and years of experience. I would recommend Dr. Tandon without hesitation.

Dr. Tandon came highly recommended to me several years ago by several neurosurgery institutions. He performed a successful brain surgery to treat epilepsy. He's very kind, thoughtful, and a brilliant brain surgeon, especially for epilepsy and brain tumors. He is also promptly responsive, even over weekends.
