Dr Tuxen has been my doctor several times over the years. He has always been kind, explained to me the procedures and what to expect when I went home. He even called me at home to check on me the day after I went home. Great Doctor!

Great Surgeon. I came in with an abscess and was completely miserable and Dr Tuxen took immediate action. I was feeling better in no time.

My dad was a patient of Dr. Tuxen and he was amazing with him. My husband and I have had a colonoscopy by him also. He's been nothing but professional with us. I would definitely see him again.

The worst Dr I have ever met.He didn't address the issue at all,instead focused on another diagnosis that is not even related.He lied on his report about what I told him in a few spots.He was so rough w the exam and was rude when I cringed.He yelled at me until I cried.He has no bedside manner and I would rather die than have him examine me again.He didn't even listen to me when I spoke.He discriminated against me for various reasons that were unrelated to why I was referred to him.
