Dr Tierney - great doctor, always accessible. Either he or Phys assistant make themselves available for emergencies. I was tired of my previous physician's wait time and lack of availability. The staff is great.

Not a hands-on Dr. He Reminds me More of a Lazy Traffic Cop in the sense of directing your problems elsewhere away from his responsibility and into the abyss as long as He accepts your insurance before your sent into the lost cause lane. That, and Pharmaceuticals don't cure everything.-I ended up with a Super Bug due to an over prescribed Antibiotic instead of actually Finding out as why I was getting sick. -Avoid this Guy like the Plague.
