Fantastic meetings with Dr. Tandon and his staff, and the operation appears to have gone great. Was able to move up the operation on short notice to minimize impact on semester, and overall fantastic experience.

Dr. Tandon and his team by far exceeded any expectations i had coming in and the level of care was unmatched by any neurology department I have seen in 15 years. From scheduling to consultation to answering questions I could not have asked for a better experience.

Absolutely outstanding removing my brain tumor and returning me to normal. He performed the third and most delicate of the surgeries necessary to allow full recovery. Follow up was very appropriate for my circumstances. He seems to care about me as a patient and a person.
