We LOVE Dr. Tandon! Our 16 year old son suffered a stroke 3 1/2 yrs. ago. He has had uncontrollable seizures and leftover AVM. Dr. Tandon was calm, patient, and explained everything very well. My son is now AVM and seizure free! He took his time in making sure we understood everything. His assistant Jessica is amazing, too. She made all of the appointments for us so we weren't calling for tests and appointments all the time.

Dr. Tandon's care was outstanding. I recently had an awake craniotomy and the care he exercised was amazing. To further my point, the time he took explaining the procedure to my wife and me was beyond reproach.

I have been with Dr. Tandon and his team throughout my treatment process. Dr. Tandon is definitely a top surgeon in the space and was very upfront regarding the steps in the process and the likely hood of it working. Dr. Tandon's team of nurses and assistants compliment his strengths and provide open communications and quick response to questions or concerns patients had. Together they were able to help guide me through such a difficult time.

Brain surgery is a serious matter; therefore, I researched it extensively. Also my insurance allowed me to select where to have the surgery. I chose Dr Tandon and the Mischer Neuroscience Institute. Factors that impacted my decision: the number of times he has performed the surgery, the level of communication between disciplines, how well he listened to me and explained procedures, his attention to detail and his high expectations of his team. He is readily accessible throughout the process.

Dr. Tandon is one of the more caring doctors I've seen. Unfortunately his wait time is long, but I've learned it's because he spends a good amount of time with his patients, and makes sure they feel fully comfortable before he moves on. He is a very busy doctor, but a great one!

Dr. Tandon is the most skilled and professional physician that I have ever come across. I couldn’t have trusted anybody else with my surgery but him. I have been suffering from temporal lobe epilepsy for two years and I thought temporal lobectomy was the only option which would caused more side effects but with Dr. Tandon’s expertise, he went ahead and treated me with minimally invasive laser ablation of the seizure focus. I was in the best of hands. His whole team is amazing especially Jessica.

Dr. Tandon is the best. Other neurologists knew his work and recommended him without hesitation. He understood and resolved my medical issue quickly and effectively. My surgery was a success and I am seizer free after the procedure. Even better, I have no lingering effects from the surgery. He has steady hands and a bright mind. His assistant Jessica Johnson is great also. They make a good team with the patient's well being at the forefront. Why go anywhere else if you need surgery!

Dr. Tandon has an amazing idea of what it takes to give a patient a better chance to develop a better memory. My surgery is very recent - so I have some development to face but he makes it feel as if he is supporting a better life/memory as is necessary. So far I've been very grateful.

Out of a dozen neurosurgeons, Dr. Nitin Tandon was the only one willing and confident enough to perform surgery on my dad’s “inoperable” brain tumor. From the beginning, he was accesible and compassionate.... Not only is his character unmatched, but so is his skill. My dad came out of surgery sharper than when he went in and recovered quite well afterwards. It was truly remarkable. We are so grateful to have found Dr. Tandon - kind, humble, and a highly skilled neuro-surgeon... Truly a godsend!

Amazing human being and a truly gifted surgeon!! So glad we found Dr Tandon! My father was diagnosed with glioblastoma and no surgeon was willing to operate due to the level of complexity of the procedure. Dr Tandon successfuly removed the tumor and my father was walking 3 miles a day 4 days later.

Though he is a brain surgeon, he is one of the most closed minded doctors I have ever met. Very sure of himself, but wrong.... My surgery was a failure, it was expensive, and did not work
