If Dr. Tietgens had a fan club, I would be president, although it's a job I know many others would like to have! Very rarely do you find a doctor so committed to her patients. She listens to everything you say and you never feel rushed during an office visit. Her compassionate and excellent care are unrivaled and it's not unusual to receive a call from her in the evening or on the weekend to discuss test results, etc.
