While I have no problem with Dr. Tontz, I cannot say the same for his assistant. I cannot get her to respond to my requests or return phone calls when I ask her to do so. It's been two weeks since the last time I asked her to relay a message to Dr. Tontz regarding a referral to another Dr. The time before I asked for something I had to ask for a supervisor after three weeks of no response. Then it took another three weeks to get an appointment.

I had two surgeons for my injury. Dr. Tontz listen to what I was saying and looked at my MRI. He said with a certain amount of confidence, he could relieve a lot of my symptoms. He also sent me for a second opinion, to put me at ease about the decision I was going to make.I feel it was the best for my injury. No more numbness and chronic pain any more .Thanks again. P.S. LIFE IS GOOD , GOD IS GREAT

Dr Tontz performed a three vertebra ACDF cervical fusion 6 moths ago. He has privileges at several hospitals and was able to come to Hillcrest Scripps Mercy to perform the surgery. Convenient for me and I have had three good experiences at this hospital in the past year. The surgery was successful and the occasional discomfort in my neck (from other discs not fused) is remedied by tylenol. I cannot see a scar any longer. Liked his manners as a Dr and a person. He listened and answered.

Last November I suffered multiple lumbar spine fractures caused by severe osteoporosis. Being referred to Dr. Tontz was the best thing that could have happened to me. In the first and subsequent consultations, he listened, reassured me, and communicated clearly with me and my family. The surgery was a success, and Dr. Tontz was thorough in his follow ups, as well as with his prescriptions. Only six months after Kyphoplasty surgery I am mobile ( even swimming), energetic, and optimistic again.

Dr Tontz is both kind and knowledgeable. He takes his time with each patient and does not leave the exam room until all questions are answered. He has done several of my back surgeries and with complete success. Please feel complete confidence with Dr. Tontz, you are in very good hands.
