"I have a great team at TCS! They always get back to me in a timely manner, explain to me any and all options, take my views and feelings into consideration, and have compassion. I could[n't] ask for a better team or experience."
"Description of issue well defined with the aid of images. Recommendation was thorough about next steps and pain management options with a simple phone call if condition flares. Clearly a group of unparalleled professionalism in my search for answers."
"These guys and gals are the best in the area and I highly recommend them...They are professional, caring, skilled and well organized. If you are hurting they will help you out."
Within 15 minutes of arriving, I was greeted, checked in, x-rayed and in my exam room with the x-rays on the screen ready for my PA. Everyone who I met with was friendly and efficient. This team really has it dialed in. I would enthusiastically recommend this team to anyone.
Your healthcare system is absolutely top notch. Every department does their job professionally and in a way that makes me feel like I am the most important person there.
I went in for [a second opinion], and I was very satisfied with how they spent the time to let me know what was going on and show me on my MRI. Totally would recommend.
