Rude, mean, doesn't listen or even try to help. Doesn't like kids and wanted me to leave my very young 3yr old child alone in the waiting room while I went back with him. Even his nurse warned me that he can seem mean and he IS! Dissmisive and unprofessional. Dont waste your time with Dr Tiernan unless you like being treated like a bother to him! Shame on you Dr T and not honoring your Hippocratic oath!

Very disappointed. Office is extremely disorganized and unprofessional. I'm not sure why I explained symptoms to the nurse because he never looked at any of her notes. He brought me into his office, sat on the other side of his desk and started typing on his computer and said "why are you here?" Didn't seem to pay attention and was not helpful at all.

Dr. Tiernan is a great doctor. Haven't had such a great conversation with an MD in years. He listens and also does his research. I highly recommend him for anyone seeking primary doctor. His office is comfortable and the staff are very helpful. I consider myself very lucky to have him as my primary Dr., I have dealt with others who rather do medical discovery rather than listen to the patient. I suggest give him a chance, If it works out great..if not well at least you tried.

Talks about non related medical issues and Googles symptoms. If he can't find an explanation for your symptoms he writes prescriptions for random medications. Office is filthy as well.

Never attentive. Always talked about non medical related issues. Visits were very short. Was very mean at times.

You will need to watch all the charges he stacks on your appointment from Vitamin B shots etc. Ask for all the charges made during your visit otherwise you will be surprised with a big bill.
