After a 12 year in search of a reliable physician to accurately access an effective diagnosis and treatment option for a debilitating condition that little is known of. Every physician prior, misdiagnosed my debilitating, life threatening disease as "anxiety" or "not real". Dr Tulshinsky actually listened to my symptoms and was able to make an accurate treatment assessment based off of what I explained to him. On the account of Dr. Tulshinsky's compassion and intellect. I was prescribed the appropriate medication and can once again, think, speak and function as I did prior to the disease. Dr. Tulshinsky's ability to treat and transform is based on his compassionate and intellect. My healing is gratuity of that. It takes a Physician to think outside of the Conventional Western Medicine Paradigm to effectively treat Health Conditions.

This man is a disrespectful, money driven, eccentric, way above his patients minded......sad excuse of a doctor. Sorry Doc... You earned it. He will find that one reaps what they sow. Do not consider this individual.

He's very blunt, but he definitely cares, and he's willing to go the extra mile to help out. If you're someone who easily offends youay not like him, because he'll give it to you straight. No fluff. But he'll hear out everything you have to say, try his damnedest to help, and refer you to others as needed. He is also very good at same day appointments if something is urgent, and getting on other doctors for you to make sure things are done.

A friend has been seeing him for years and recommended me. I was able to get an appointment very quickly and the office was very friendly. He spent more time with me than any other doctor has and was very thorough. I'm surprised by the ratings here because I really feel comfortable and at ease in his office. I also like that he is a DO!

He's not trustworthy. While he was cleaning my ears, I went vasovagal and fell forward. He didn't even try to catch me or stick an arm out to break my fall, he let me fall to the ground. And I fell hard. Because of that, I recieved many stitches on my face, broke my glasses and fractured a tooth. He's somewhat okay if you're just going to get advice or getting a prescription from him. But having him perform some medical procedure on you? Don't risk it, there are many better physicians than him.
