Top Doc! Top Med. Asst., too!

I am a first-time patient of Dr. Tindall and OrthoArizona. Wow, ... am I impressed! I arrived for my appointment in the afternoon on time and I was seen promptly. His front office staff are courteous. When I met Dr. Tindall, I immediately liked him. Dr. Tindall has great bedside manners. He took the time to listen to me and my story. He evaluated my situation. He was interactive and personable. Most of all: Dr. Tindall was very professional! Impressively, while most surgeons probably all recommend surgery, Dr. Tindall distinguished himself by not recommending it. After all, who wants, "to go under the knife?" Instead, he recommended other things and that I stay on the regiment that is working for me by my primary care doctor. His Medical Assistant Annalisia is great, too! They promptly return phone calls, and she even sent me an e-mail after-hours from her phone -- on a Friday -- just to make sure they got back to me. I am so impressed! I would recommend Dr. Tindall and Annalisia to anyone who wants an honest and unbiased medical opinion, excellent service and peace of mind when it comes to the most important matter of all: your health. Thank you, Dr. Tindall and Annalisia. /s/ Bill G.

Surgery that was not needed

I lived for 22 yrs in excruciating pain thanks to Dr. Tindall. I had 1 surgeon in my new home town and 2 surgeons at Mayo Clinic confirm he messed me up. I had 3 scopes that were not needed, he left a bone chip the size of a quarter in my knee so that I would continue to have pain and need more surgery. this was confirmed by the anes. that did my surgery. Dr Tindall told him he was doing it on purpose to get me to come back. What a fraud and a cruel thing to do, causing more pain and stealing from my ins company. Do not go to this man.

Won't return a phonecall

My mother had a procedure on her knee by Dr. Tyndall done in his office. The amount of time and attention he spent with her was reckless. He barely looked up to give the injection and was gone. Poor bedside manner, we have all seen that, but we don't have to tolerate it. The next day, she had a reaction it took three hours before someone returned the message left on the answering machine DURING OFFICE HOURS! The next day the reaction was worse/scary swollen lips tongue and scratch throat!! STILl WAITING FOR A RETURN CALL FROM THE MESSAGE LEFT ON ANSWERING MACHINE DURING OFFICE HOURS. We paid the bill and conte to receive no/poor service. How in the world do you stay in business?
