Outstanding care

Both Dr. Tierney and Dr. Vawter have treated me over the years. They are knowledgable, considerate and skillful. From a very thorough annual exam to a biopsy to quick treatment for bronchitis, they do it all. The atmosphere in the office is calm and welcoming. The staff are really helpful and you fell well cared for in their office. Highly recommended.

Dr. Tierney is AMAZING. She takes the time to understand your medical issues. I never feel rushed with her. And, she takes copious notes - making diagnosis easier at times. Staff is VERY friendly. Can't say enough good things about this doctor - she's the best, in my opinion.

Best Doctor EVER

I have been a patient of Dr. Tierney for over 25 years. I now live most of the time in Atlanta, with a home in Monterey - and she continues to be my primary physician. She is a lovely and warm human being. She never gives the impression of being rushed nor does she rush me. She is caring, thoughtful, and genuinely interested. She is non-judgemental. She gives you her full attention and LISTENS. Her email availability is also a big advantage. I can not recommend her highly enough.
