Patient Comments (1)
in San Diego, CA |
In the last six years I have broke my back twice riding motocross. In both cases I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Tantuwaya do both of my surgery's. As far as I am concerned he kept me from being paralyzed or having serious issues walking. His bedside manner was second to none. I was pleased with my experience with Dr. T, I would highly recommend him to anyone. Sincerely, Anthony G
