Patient Comments (3)

Terrible bed side manners. Nothing but issues after surgery and he could care less. Hoping to find someone willing to fix his mistakes. Him and the PA are pill pushers. Don't fix the issue, just cover it.

Dr. Tyndall has done multiple surgeries for me. Carpal tunnel on both hands, ACL replacement R knee and total knee replacement L knee. I would recommend him to anyone needing surgery.

Told me if I had problems let him know (after surgery) left should tear. Let his PA give me an injection, less than 8 was after surgery. There was a hole in the repair he did. Ended up going to Dr Rodosky for 2nd surgery. Should have gone to him 1st. Very unhappy with care received by Tyndall. ...more
