Very helpful and understanding in what is a worrying time.

Was not seen at appointment time. 30 minutes after appointment time I approached the staff to ask how much longer it would be. I was told she would check and get back to me. 15 minutes after initially asking, I went to the desk and asked again. I was told it would be at least another hour. I left at that point.

The Physician Assistant that we saw yesterday was fantastic. She took the time to explain what she was going to do during her assessment and made my daughter feel at ease.

The doctor and pa were great! The wait time was over 2 hours. We were patient, but that is unacceptable.

after an automobile accident that caused severe injuries to our grandson, we placed him Dr. Tyler-Kabara's hands to perform spinal surgery. She performed miracles. She will always have our trust and deep gratitude.

Our experience with my sons provider is always exceptional. being that my son has a rare disease, his quality of life now and in the future is at risk. The most comforting thing that we have experienced with Dr. Tyler Kabara is that my 16 year old son trusts her completely, values her thoughts and opinions, and depends on her honesty where his disease is concerned. We could not be in a better position right now, we have been so blessed to have a doctor that goes to all lengths to know what is going on with our son, and find out what is best for him.

Her PA at this appt.(unfortunatley, do not recall her name)was so kind,professional,considerate of my daughter and me. Very knowledgeable abt Chiari Malformation l. I am very thankful for both and have recommended Dr. T-K to a friend that I saw there the same day! Dr. T-K a blessing to have at Children's!!
