Dr. Tamber is an excellent surgeon. My son's neurosurgical needs are very complex, and Dr. Tamber's decisions and recommendations have made a very positive difference in his health. I am forever grateful for Dr. Tamber's surgical skills and good decisions.

Only bad thing was the wait time. Arrived at 825 for an 845 appointment. Vitals were done immediately and we were sent back to the waiting room. We were not taken to the exam room until 935. Then waited another 30 min to be seen.
