My name is Courtney and I have something to say about one of the last good doctors in the medical community. He is absolutely the most considerate, intelligent and humble doctor that I have ever had. If he doesn't give you what "think" you need, then he has weighed the risks and decided using his knowledge. I tell everyone I know what an amazing doctor he is and how refreshing it is to see a doctor who isn't acting superior to everyone else. He drops his plans to help me and calls me personally for questions I have regardless of how mundane or unusual they may be. I hated Peak Vista and am so blessed to find a doctor who actually cares for the patient. We need more like him! We love you Dr. Tushla!!!!

This DR. TUSHLA carelessly had me go through WITHDRAWAL 3 times due to that fact that he wouldn't renew or refill a prescription for benzodiazepines. Not only was he on "vacation" but failed to put me under another doctors care while he was out. Front desk staff sat and did nothing but roll their eyes while I suffered a panic attack in the lobby. When this jerk finally returned from a headache meds pharmaceutical paid trip he wanted to prescribe me these new headache meds which I didn't need.

One of the most intelligent physicians I have had the pleasure of having. His bed side manner is extraordinary, he has a comforting way about him, and he always demonstrated the utmost care for all his patients, almost as if you were his only patient and he your personal physician. Since he has left CA, I have yet to find a physician that can even compare to Dr. Tushla.
