Dr.Tyler is a phenomenal dr! she ia very personable. She talks in a manner that tells you exactly what's going on without frightening you. She explains everything step by step and will clarify anything as many times as you need, until you completely understand. Dr.Tyler provided exceptional care for my 6yr. Old boy with osteosarcoma.

Dr. Tyler is amazing! She take great care of her patients! She listens carefully and tries to find a solution to concerns you have. She and her fantastic secretary, Lauren keep you on track for your 6 month scans/appts. If something doesn't seem quite right, she acts upon it and check it out...she doesn't blow you off like some doctors to. Dr. Tyler always explains what is going on and answers any questions I have. She is my favorite doctor!
