      I was totally impressed with Dr. Tumors the first time I met him and I have always recommended him and always will. He's very professional and caring.

      Dr Tymitz has been amazing since my first visit. I love that he genuinely cares about my well being. I don't typically have any questions and he always double checks with me at the end of the visit that I still have no questions. I appreciate that he genuinely cares about me that's a rare trait.
