Initial consult was great. Had a different perspective then my other doctor. Sent me for a test. After the test it took me over 3 weeks and several frustrating phone calls to get the results from him. He then implemented a plan for me. Long and short his plan did not heal me which is fine. What is not fine is that he has not returned my phone calls for 6 weeks. Several calls. All ignored. Unacceptable! I need a reliable doctor. Dr Tilson is a joke. Patient follow up is nonexistent. Unreliable.

Dr. Tilson is amazing. He is warm and friendly. Even as a new patient he saw me immediately for abdominal pain. He scheduled two different procedures, the one he is able to do himself was scheduled the next day and the other test 6 days later. He was attentive and made sure he thoroughly went through every possible option for me.
