The dr. had given us as a family the utmost attention and was genuinely thrilled how far our daughter had come artistically having to use her non-dominate hand since the stroke.

Thank you for saving my son! I'm so happy we may not have to come back; however, admittedly, I'm going to miss you. You all are AWESOME! God bless you!

Very helpful and understanding in what is a worrying time.

My son was so excited to see the doctor and talk to her. She did not rush him or push him or act like what he was saying was unimportant. She told us that he made her day!

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.

June 27, 2017

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.
