South Georgia is lucky to have Dr. Tidmore. He could have practiced rheumatology anywhere in the country having been educated at Emory and John’s Hopkins. He has been my dr. for 3 years for RA and he is knowledgeable, patient and friendly. Highly recommend him.

I have Lupus and Dr. Tidmore has overseen my care for about 8 years. He and his PAs and/or NP staff have been good for me. I feel much better than I did and my concerns are always addressed in a timely and professional manner.

Dr Tidmore refused to let me accompany my wife in the exam room. Never been a problem before. Why now? She has Lupus with brain fog and confusion and could certainly use my help to remember important details. He can be such a jerk sometimes

Dr. Tidmore is every wonderful thing said on the previous reviews and more. He was an answered prayer for my brother and me about our Mother who has been in unexplainable pain for months. Our first visit was extraordinary pleasing. Dr. Tidmore's bedside manners and personable ability to answer questions, give realistic expectations. Immediately began testing investigating possible cause and ruling out others. In the first 5 minutes of our visit, I felt he was the one! Perfec

I used to see this doctor when I was first diagnosed with lupus back in the early 2000s. He never wanted to hear my concerns and was often very rude with poor table side manner. He always said there was no way to treat these symptoms with nutrition and did not want to hear any of it. It has been a long while since I left this practice so I'm not sure if he is still the same. I suggest if you need help find a doctor that will include your recommendations or concerns in your health.

Dr Tidmore has been my Rheumatologist for 13 years. I have psoriatic and osteoarthritis. He is so knowledgeable when it comes to rheumatology. He is kind and very caring. He has helped to keep me mobile and helped to keep my pain at bay. I would highly recommend him. He is so good about working patients in on an emergent basis when they are in crisis mode or in flares.

I believe Dr. Tidmore saved my life. In October 2015, I almost couldn't walk. He quickly ran the blood work he needed. He is very proactive. If you need to be seen quick. He finds away. I continue seeing him between one-three months depending on my medication. I would recommend him to anyone who possibly has rheumatory problems. I drive two hours to see him.

I have heard so many good things about Dr. Tidmore. I'm so thankful that I was finally able to have my first visit with him this week. My mind was at ease just talking to him. Having a chronic illness, dealing with so many doctors that "don't know" or "can't do anything else" for me, it was a breath of fresh air just to have medical staff LISTEN. I'm super excited about my journey with Dr. Tidmore and his team. After all these yrs, I think Ive found the answer to my prayers!!

I would recommend Dr. Tidmore. He was polite, professional, and very knowledgeable. Very Proactive. And the staff that I have had contact with is very courteous. I drive almost 2 hours one way to see him. And it is worth it.
