I actually work with Dr. Tumula. I am a patient as well as an employee. He was not my diagnosing Physician from the beginning, but he took me on when Dr. Esler retired. He has mainly handled follow ups. Yes, I would highly recommend Dr. Tumula to anyone.

Dr. Tumula is the best. He always takes time to explain the results of the blood tests. He is very concerned about my condition and progress. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Tumula as my doctor. I am thankful that my primary care doctor referred me to him.

Dr Tumula is great. Heck... the whole staff is great.. I have never sat in the waiting room for more than 10 minutes... and I’ve never walked out of his office confused about anything ... He explains things really well, and he’s never hurried me along to move on to the next patient
