Dr. Tyer was condescending and arrogant. He could not be bothered to actually listen to what I was saying. He was too busy making assumptions. He spent more time trying to prove that he was right and I was clearly wrong about my own symptoms to bother with professionalism. The tests he ordered to show how right right he was, proved my request for a new doctor was justified. He was wrong. He is pompous, dismissive, and rude. But the worst is, he lacks empathy and kindness for his patients.

I fee.l I was treated horribly by Dr. Tyer. I saw him after months of chronic migraines and was prescribed two medications which after 3 days of use I was having serious side effects. Info from the pharmacy indicated that if this occurred to contact the medical professional which I did. The staff acted as if my phone call was an insult. After spending $280 on the appointment and medication I was told to find another doctor. I am going to file a grievance with the Texas Licensing Board.
