Patient Comments (1)
in Austin, TX |
If you have cancer, you want this doctor on your team. I was introduced to him with a 7mm growth at the top of my left lung. Not good. His expert radiation DELETED it totally. You can't ask for a better result. Dr. Tierney is personable, very skilled and knowledgeable of the latest methods used in radiation. He made me comfortable about my treatments and worked with me when there we discomforts, always asking "what can I do for you?" WOW. Need a radiologist? Call his office.
