Dr Tuxen saved my life after I sustained a gunshot wound to the abdomen in 1979. I wiil forever be in debt to this great man and doctor as If it wasn't for him I wouldn't be alive today to build and enjoy my family. Being shot inspired me to get in law enforcement and I have since retired after 28 years. Thank you Dr Tuxen and God Bless to you and your family..
Dr.Tuxen has been working with me for about a year now and I have nothing but pleasant experiences with him. He has done one of my surgeries so far and I couldn't be happier with his work. I'm currently seeing a new GI specialist and I wish Dr.Tuxen could be my all around GI specialist because I have so much trust towards him. I really recommend seeing him if you need a colon surgery. He did an AMAZING job. Never been happier with a doctor before.
