Excellent Care

The dr. is very efficient and capable. She always knows our history and recognizes us immediately.

While we had a long wait for our appointment, I take this in account that Dr. Tyler Kabera is an amazing doctor and truly cares about her patients and their health. She spent time with us, answered questions and was very respectful to my daughter and myself. She is careful and does not rush you or discount your concerns unlike others @CHP. I would recommend her to anyone who was in need of a neurosurgeon.

Dr. Taylor was very knowledgeable of my condition. She gave myself and my mom detailed information on next steps and answered all of our questions and concerns.

waiting is way to long I had an 8:00 (which we arrived for at 7:30 as requested by scheduling) and 8:30 routine visit apt, and we were not finished with the doctor until after 11:00I understand emergencies and so thankful the doctors are there to help, just seems like something can be done that a 6 year old does not spend over 3 1/2 hours in the exam room for 2 simple apt where the doctors agreed to just do more testing. I appreciate my doctors and there attention to our child, I just wish there was a way to move along the appointments- less waiting time.

I love the Dr Tyler-Kabara talks to my son during the check-up. She asks him the questions, talks to him about how he is feleing, explains things to him and asked me my comments/feedback at the end only. It's so refreshing to have a health care provider give the child a voice. Thanks!

June 26, 2018

Very warm, responsible, and knowledgable. I'm really grateful to her for encouraging a consevative approach to managing my injury, as other doctors leapt straight to the option of surgery, which I very much wanted to avoid if possible. She also encouraged me to resume my regular activities, which I'd been missing. She's the perfect balance of funny, professional, brisk, and kind.

Overall it was a pretty good visit. However, I was freaked out a bit about hearing about my possible shunt revision. This really wasn't great as I suffer from extreme anxiety and as a result became sick in the days that followed. (written by my child)

Dr.TK has been nothing short of exceptional through this difficult time. She is a skilled neurosurgeon with a great bedside manner and I feel so blessed to have her on our team
