    I got a call back from a new np in the office. I asked some questions about a medication that was going to be increased. The np said she can't explaine it to me right now because someone was making me laugh. I was shocked and appauled at that answer. I called Dr. Tierney about what happened. His response to me was that if he had to believe me or the np, he'd believe her. Again shocked. Tierney was basically calling me a liar and my husband as he was there when I spoke to her.

    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.
